361 days to go: Bright and white

I had no idea what I was going to wear today. I tried on a few things while the children were still sleeping (thank goodness for summer holiday lie-ins) but nothing looked right. Then I went back to my wardrobe and this dress/tunic screamed "wear me". I wasn't too sure as the last time I wore it, a few Sundays back it didn't feel right. I felt fat and frumpy. I think the mistake I made was wearing it with wide leg white trousers and flat shoes. Today I clinched it in with a white leather belt, added slim leg white trousers and higher heels.
Tunic: Marks and Spencer
Cropped trousers: George
Shoes: Tesco
Belt: Miss Selfridge
Necklace: George
Ear-rings: Tesco

I love this on you! Reading your blog makes me think I need to change my phrase-ology. I overslept this morning but I think I am going to refer to it as a "lie-in" now. Sounds so posh!

Super cute! I love the colors and it is perfect with slim fit white capris!

I love this on you! You look super tall and slim - the white bottoms are perfect! Good call on the high wedges, too.

see you there! said...

Great combo, the wide belt is just the accent needed.

I think I will file this as a "hit", I love the comments about being super tall - I am 5ft 0!

I think this look is great! It really suits you. I can't beleive that you got to wear it. The sun is out!! I hear you've been having some pretty crappy weather over there.

You look nice & summery. The colorful dress looks great with white pants.
