After yesterday’s all black look, normal service is resumed today! This outfit is a bit of a nostalgia trip really because I’m wearing items I bought ten or more years ago! The boots and sunglasses are probably 12 or 13 years old, and the dress and trench coat a decade old.
The tie dye autumnal shades make this dress ideal for this time of year. It’s a thin, slinky material but has a double layer, so I don’t feel too exposed in it. I have worn it in summer with nude heels, but I prefer the extra layer that tights provide to smooth out any lumps and bumps! Although it’s no longer available, I have found one in a black and purple colourway on Poshmark. I was intending to wear this dress for last month’s Stylish Monday collaboration, but chose a skirt at the last minute instead.
This brown trench coat is great for throwing on over just about any outfit. It has lovely big pockets which is always a plus for me. I’ve added my orange bag to match with the top of the dress, although cream would look great too. For a more dressed down look I could layer a long cardigan over the dress; I’ve seen some lovely ones in the shops but I’m trying not to buy more clothes!
