Sometimes (and by sometimes I mean with regrettable frequency) I feel bloated which rules out any dresses which nip in at the waist. That whole trend was one I steered round as best I could although for a little while I dropped my guard and found a couple of skater dresses in my wardrobe. Back to right now though and this vintage dress is perfect for feeling comfortable; the bust is fitted but it's all loose after that and finishes just above my knee which in my book renders it a highly practical option suitable for every occasion. I've worn in with my super-cosy coral top and thermal black tights and boots but I think equally it could be dressed up with a lace top underneath and a nice pair of heels. It's an unusual combination of gold and burgundy houndstooth with two shiny gold buttons and made of fairly heavy material.

I found this lovely necklace, long forgotten to add some bling, plus with a stack of bracelets and rings. Two new additions are the green ones, recent finds from Sue Ryder.

The weekend has been a long time coming this week, I'm more than ready. Have a great one!

  2. I love this dress on you, it has a lovely pattern and colours and the fit is great. I can't do nipped in waists on dresses, they just don't suit me and I feel uncomfortable in them.

  3. Love this dress! I am more than ready for the weekend, too! x

  4. It's amazing how different you can feel when in the right dress shape for your figure. Love this dress, hold and burgundy is unusual and is never have thought to team it with coral but it really works!

  5. Nice combination!! I like non traditional aHoundstooth. Why is it called Houndstooth??x

  6. That red is so pretty on you x

  7. What I like about your outfit posts is that you always pick the nicest places to take them and I love that warm hue that's in these ones - takes me back summertime! I love the way this outfit goes together and the pattern on the dress gives it that warmth too. Lovely! - Tasha
