A Shirt Dress with Mules and a Blazer (& #Passion4Fashion linkup!)

Being late May i have been craving some nice warm weather. We haven't really had it yet, but i live in hope. So i've just decided to go with it and the legs have had a bit of fresh air. I've been wearing jeans constantly lately so it was refreshing to wear a dress for a much needed change. 
And what's better than in a nice new dress and heels that didn't (technically) cost me a penny.
I was so pleased as it was that time where my Tesco Clubcard vouchers popped up into my inbox (for my foreign friends, these are a clubcard scheme where you build up points with every pound you spend and in this case points most definitely make prizes!! Or shoes and a dress in this case), plus they are doubling up all vouchers for clothes .... Aannnd voila! 
New shirt dress and mules that i have had my eye for weeks. They're bloody gorgeous and i love them. I've been trying them on every-time i'm shopping and have kept on an eye on the sizes, making sure to move the size 6 to the back of the rack whilst i decided whether to buy them or not , so when the vouchers landed i decided now was as good a time as any! 
These mules are gorgeously soft and the heel is a great sturdy block, making them surprisingly more comfy than i expected, i couldn't decide if i wanted them in the tan or the black, but ended up going for the black knowing a lot would go with them this summer. 
Two things i can see me living in this summer, shirt dresses and mules..Happy Days (as long as it warms up a bit that is)

So yes; Free shoes and a free dress equals getting the legs out and for a very happy Friday... Plus after today i am off for 12 days from the ol' day job and we are off on holibobs next week to Cornwall! 
I'm sooo excited!

  6. Looking good Rachel, that's a really nice dress and it looks great with those fab mules. I'm saving up my clubcard vouchers for hotel vouchers this year but I normally use them for clothes! Whereabouts in Cornwall are you going to? I went there last summer and wrote about Bude, which is gorgeous: http://www.porcelinasworld.com/2014/08/vintage-guide-to-bude-cornwall.html
    Hope you have a really wonderful holiday and look forward to some holiday outfit photos on your return xx
