Orange Legs

Hello lovelies,

Friday’s here woohoo. We’re off to Hubby’s parents down London way and just about to set off. I always hate the 4hour journey, but enjoy it when we get there, and after the week i’ve had i’m looking forward to some down time, including afternoon sleeps and long park walks.

Dress: sale Dorothy Perkins
Cardi: Clothing at Tesco
Tight: Newlook
Bag & shoes  & necklace: Matalan
I first thought the pattern on this dress was little umbrellas, but looking at it now i see they are flowers! Silly me! I also see that its a tad short! At 5’6″ and with a lot of junk in the trunk this dress is a little toooo teeny tiny. Perhaps leggings would be best and retire my “you’ve been tangoed” legs.
I dont have many specs days these days, i’m an avid contact lens wearer, but with a mixture of hayfever and unbelievable tiredness i had to give my eyes a rest from contacts. I love that glasses are now “fashionable” and you can get some awesome frames, but i just dont feel right in specs, which is strange as i’ve had them since a teenager.
Anyway i will love you and leave you (i haven’t forgotten the award to pass on folks, i’ll do it Monday, Pinky Promise!!)
I’m in such a rush, lots to do!!
Have a wonderfully happy weekend lovelies!

Ps i haven’t proof read this, so if there’s a gazillion errors, forgive me, im rushing around like a mad woman!)

    I'm so happy you paired those marvelous tights with that dress. It's so unexpected but so perfect. Have a wonderful weekend!

    What a super cute print! These colours suit you so well, and I love how you've paired that bright red colour with the softer tones!

    Goodness Rachel, I really just adore the way you create gorgeous color combos with your outfits. I have a very similar pair of shoes and never thought in a million years to pair them with orangey-red tights and a lavender dress. I might just have to do this once the weather gets cooler again:)

    Have a lovely weekend with your hubby's family! xx Marisa

    Oh how I'm missing tights & cardis right now! I love your orange tights with this dress, so cute. I think it looks perfect on you!

    That dress is gorgeous on you! Love how you can pull of the vibrant colours with your tights, I can imagine the looks I would get here (small outback Australian mining town) if I wore them! They already look at me funny as it is!
