The last day of October already! We saw the month out with a lovely half term break in Funchal, arriving home in the early hours of Saturday morning. On Friday we took a walk from the apartment to Sao Tiago Fort and the gardens of the Quinta das Cruzes Museum. It was my last chance to wear this dress, which I took with today’s Style Not Age post in mind. Jacqui set the prompt of “Orange You Excited For Halloween”, and as you probably know, I have plenty of orange in my wardrobe!
I also have this dress in pink, which I wore on my previous trip to Funchal in July. When I bought it I was torn between pink and orange, but I’d already bought a few orange dresses and the Barbiecore trend had me craving some sugary pink. Well, a few weeks ago I saw the dresses had been reduced to £10 and I couldn’t resist buying it in orange too. The pink version is still on the TKMaxx website and I’ve found an orange one (size large) listed on Vinted for £7.99. This cotton dress is cool and airy, especially with the angel sleeves so it’s ideal for warm, humid weather.
As I had to pack light (Pete might dispute I achieved that!) I took this green vegan leather bag inside a bigger bag as hand luggage. (You probably won’t be surprised to learn that I also have it in orange!) It’s big enough to carry all my essentials for a day out exploring, and as it’s faux leather it’s very light too.
I finished off my outfit with gold jewellery, including my Monica Vinader rings. I love teaming them all together for maximum impact. For me, no outfit is complete without beautiful jewellery! You can bag 20% off full priced items at Monica Vinader using code MVINSIDER20-58B4.
