It was a cold wet and miserable morning when I took these photos, but a morning that was better than most lately. Nevertheless I braved the cold, hair getting damper and frizzier by the minute and looking all serious to show you this outfit I wore to Jordan’s granddad’s 80th birthday meal the other week…

Not a dress person…

If I’m not on a night out then I’m generally not a dress person, I don’t know what it is but perhaps my jean, jumper, boot combo is what’s comforting to me and day dresses are so out of my comfort zone. I’m trying to change this though and so I’ve recently added a few day dresses to my basket, with this being one of them.

I’d possibly prefer this New Look tartan shift dress to be an inch or two longer in length because after looking at these photos I feel like it’d be a touch more flattering on my 5ft 7″ chunky-thighed frame, but I do like it regardless. The colour is undoubtedly my favourite thing about it, with it’s dark check and subtle teal running through it. I think it’s a dress that’d be easy to dress up or down and I can’t wait to give it a go pulled in at the waist with a belt and leggings.

The bargain bag & must have boots

I’m obsessed with this little teal bargain bag from Primark at the moment. The colour is lovely, it’s well structured and the silver hardware gets a big thumbs up from me.

The boots are my Dolce Vita Tessey Boots that I recently posted about here which seem to be a big hit with me and everyone that see’s them. In a nutshell, the colour is gorgeous, they’re comfy, good quality, go with most of my wardrobe and are definitely worth the price tag. Love!

Awkward

Before I go can we just address how awkward I look in these photos? Perhaps it’s because I’m still not entirely used to this outfit posing business or maybe it’s because the weather was awful and I insisted on showing you this outfit without a coat since that’s how I wore it out to the meal. Either way, I’m not entirely happy with them but after freezing half to death I couldn’t not share them with you…
