Pink and Blue?!
So I gave in! I’m wearing tights! But they go so amazingly with this brightly coloured dress, I couldn’t help myself, despite the sun showing it’s face for a change. For those of you doing a double take at seeing me in such a print..it was sent to me last week by the lovely Nina from Family Affairs. I love all of their stuff – i’m such a huge fan, but i’ll admit, when I opened the package and saw all of the pink and blue, my heart sank a little bit. I’m not a very ‘pink’ girl. But then I slipped the dress on, and my mind changed completely, I was thanking Nina for pushing me out of my comfort zone..!! It’s great to put something on that makes you feel a little bit different than usual – and it fits like a glove.
I was very conscious that the drop waist showed my not-so-flat belly (skillfully hidden my by posing in these pictures!) so I think i’ll feel 100% at ease in it once i’ve been to the gym a few times, but that is it’s only downfall. The buttons on it are from the 1930s, and feel so heavy and luxurious. My favourite bit on the entire dress is the neck at the back with it’s pointed collar. I can’t wait to dress it down a little with a coat and hat once the days are even colder..it’s sure to brighten up a dull winter’s day. What do you think? x
