It’s starting to get warmer and that means that I can start to break out my summer clothes finally! And with today’s Blogging from A – Z post being the letter O I thought that there would be no better opportunity than to share with you my Outfit of the Day!
I work in an office that is open plan and can either be really chilly or can be pretty hot depending on what the heating decides to do that day so layering is a must for days when I am in work. And, even though the weather is starting to get warmer, there are times when the day is still pretty cold with a breeze that feels sub-zero in the mornings but by the afternoon can be fairly warm and pleasant. Today’s outfit is perfect for the weather we are currently having.
I love mixing summer dresses with items that are meant for cooler weather and today I have picked my favorite summer dress, a lovely tie dye strappy piece, which in summer I wear with bare legs and shoulders. Today I am teaming it with tights, a t-shirt from Primark, a long cardigan from Asda and my favorite, sparkly sandals (which are jelly shoes!).
I love this outfit, it is bright and fun but comfortable at the same time and pared with my black cardi isn’t ‘over-the-top’ bright for work. I am a huge fan of open cardigans too, they are the perfect item to layer and add to many outfits. I like to wear mine over shirts and leggings, jeans and t-shirts, dresses, cute skirts and tops, the list is pretty much endless!
I bought my dress at a festival several years ago and wear it each and every year. I have worn it with a turtle neck top underneath and thick tights and boots in the winter, and can transition it to summer wear by adding either a long sleeve top, t-shirt, vest top or nothing underneath it. It works really well with several different cardis over the top too, from my chunky arran knit cardi to a pale pink chunky knit cardi that I own. I love the colours of it as I can mix it with pinks, blues, purples and black and it still looks lovely. I can dress it up or down depending on where I am going too! It really is the perfect dress for me!
I got my jelly shoes in a charity shop last year. They were brand new with the tags still on and cost me £2.00 which I thought was a complete bargain! I love how comfortable they are and I have worn them with black skinny jeans and socks, shorts and dresses. They look really nice with bare feet or with socks.
