I’ve indulged in a spot of dress shopping this last week or so…I’m blaming the glorious weather. Well, that and the fact that there are so many gorgeous dresses out there to tempt me. It started with a visit to Zara when I was working in Leeds, and that just whetted my appetite. Since then I’ve ordered a couple more from Zara online, and then this beauty caught my eye. I wore this mix print wrap dress for an anniversary lunch on Sunday.
To celebrate our eighth wedding anniversary we went to a local gastro pub that has just introduced a vegan menu. It’s only a couple of miles from where we live and is surrounded by beautiful countryside. After lunch we had a little stroll to suss out the footpaths so that we can plan a nice long walk when I’m more suitably attired. Of course I could have dressed more casually, but sometimes it feels nice to dress up, especially when you have new outfits to photograph 😉
I’m a huge fan of wrap dresses because they are a classic style that suit just about everyone. They’re also very comfortable (exactly what you need when you go out for a big meal!). I love the clashing prints and bright colours in this dress – mustard and bright blue is one of my favourite colour pairings. If you’re unsure about mixing prints, choosing a dress that does it for you is a good way to start. The two patterns are very different but the colours compliment each other. A dress this bold needs neutral accessories, so I wore my trusty gold wedge espadrilles and added a rattan bucket bag.

The cutout V at the back of this dress is a really nice detail, and helped keep me cool on a very warm day. The point ends just above the bra line which is great because I can’t/won’t go braless. So many dresses that I love from the front immediately become off limits when I see the deep V at the back. Not this one though 🙂
I added this dainty rose gold bee necklace that I won from Becky’s Boutique. I can’t actually remember what I did to win it, but it was a lovely surprise 🙂
