Hey everyone, what’s your best low effort outfit with a high impact?
I thought I’d kick off my brand new blog with one of my favourite dresses: this mixed print tea dress from asos. I got this last year (for a date) and can definitely say I’ve gotten my money’s worth.
This dress has gone to dates, dinners, walks in the park and hit up the clubs- all with some simple accessory switch ups- adding a denim jacket, removing my cami.
And today it had it’s virgin photoshoot outing- (plus wandering round markets, burgers and half a dozen coffee runs!)
For any of you who have known me for years, red used to be my colour- my first bright coat was red and I can consider myself a pro in a red and blue combo outfit; nautical, floral, preppy- you name it. What I love about this dress is the mix of two fabrics, making it really stand out and do double duty. It pairs perfectly with a cropped denim jacket and even looks fab peeking out from under a coat.
No word of a lie, I was once walking down Oxford Street in this outfit and had three people stop me to comment on it- particularly the shoes.
Now these shoes were a gamble.
A gamble that dare I say, paid off. These beauties actually popped up as a recommendation on Amazon (it’s not just for books anymore) and loving the block heel and bargain price I decided I had to have them.
Unfortunately- they weren’t in my size any longer so I actually went a size down- not that I endorse this at all- which left me with a real conflict. When they arrived they were everything I wanted, and the perfect bright red, however, the first few wears were a challenge of pain tolerance and ankle strength. Fast forward a couple of weeks and they had stretched out, thankfully and I’ve been wearing them every opportunity since. Those blisters were penance for playing the shoe size lottery and taught me my lesson- but not without losing the shoes (thanks Jesus).
Another day another lesson learnt! Does anyone else have a happy ending to a wrong size shoe or am I just #blessed?
(excuse the blurry arm)
