Outfit: Striped Dress, Purple Tights




Dune back patent2

I am loving rocking the coloured tights this autumn. I always vow I will do this, then end up wearing just black, brown, grey or navy. Which I suppose are colours, just not very exciting ones.


Last night I went to step class and then came home feeling shattered. I flopped on the sofa with a mug of tea to watch Mythbusters, then took a shower and was in bed before 10.30pm.


When I am at a loss as to what to wear the following day I go to my closet and flick through my dresses. A dress is such an easy option – you just need to pick out some tights and shoes to go with it, and perhaps a layer to go under or over it. This dress was marked as a maxi on River Island’s website. Now I know that their stuff is always short, and I am pretty tall, but just who is this a maxi dress on? I’m not THAT tall!


Also: I have a new coat! It’s a Long Tall Sally one and it arrived from eBay yesterday. It’s time for my black and white check coat to be retired and this is an awesome replacement.

  1. Are you wearing glasses more regularly for any reason ? Have you had an eye exam recently ? Loving the bright tights !

  2. My only reason is laziness! If I don't spend 5-10 minutes faffing with my contact lenses and applying eye make up I can spend 5-10 minutes longer in bed.
