Tartan Dress and Passion 4 Fashion Linkup

 Why is it that at this time of year i always start to feel Christmassy. I mean, it's just wrong isn't it, we're still 2 whole months away from the big C-day but i can't help but get excited! What normally happens is i get really excited way ahead of the date and then get Christmas burn out the weeks running up to the day.. typical really.
My prompt for Christmassy feelings could be this cute tartan dress. Tartan always reminds me of the festive season but i couldn't (and shouldn't i might add) wait till December to where this cute little number. dresses with sleeves will forever be my BFF's of the dress world, they're just so cosy and comfy. I added some extra bling in the form of the rather fabulous Aurora statement necklace that really packs a punch and finished it off with my gorgeous Clarks boots from Shoetique, which FYI are super comfy even for heels. I took them on an unexpected half mile walk to the bank today and they proved to be very comfy. I am very impressed!

  8. OMG I love that dress! Is it Primark!? I tried one on a very similar one in there a month or so ago. I loved it so much but it didn't suit my figure at all :( Was a little gutted but I remember thinking hoe amazing it was and how great it would look on someone else .. and wow yes it does! Gorgeous!

    I always feel Christmassy in October too! Anything can set me off, even seeing the lights on in a restaurant on a dark evening!

  14. Its a lovely dress Rachel & perfect for the festive season! I love finding high but comfy shoes! Its a blessing! Have a wonderful weekend! Ax

  15. Oh Rachel! I love this entire ensem, even where it is photographed is perfect. You look so good in deep colors. You are a sheer inspiration to me, girl friend. I'm finally feeling so much better. Yesterday was a day of appointments w/ the Drs and getting more 'herceptin' infused. That dang stuff is so necessary to my treatment but it doesn't have a side effect so it is like "did it even happen"? So that's why I am pokey today. Love your hair up too! ♥

  16. What a gorgeous dress! I love the plaid and the rich colors.

  17. Tartan is totally your pattern rachel! Looking absolutely gorgeous!
