Burgundy & Mint (Debbie’s Duck Dress)

Continuing on with the #frockswapuk, after i sent Erica’s goodies on to Donna i received Debbie’s array of goodies plus Erica’s George goodies which actually made for a great outfit all together!
 I took Debbie’s duck dress with Erica’s George mint fluffy cropped jumper and this is what i got…

Debbie handmade this dress with her totally awesome dress making skills, she is one talented lady i tell you. The fit was comfy and the length perfect, i actually wore this a couple of weeks ago and just felt great all day. I was Sunday comfy yet looking as if some effort had at least been made. 

It seems i’m doing this formula with cropped fluffy sweaters layered over the top of dresses a lot lately. But, now we’re officially on Summer time here in the UK, maybe its time to put away the knitwear? Or maybe not.. i mean i am in the UK after all, winter could still continue knowing our climate, but with fluffy cropped sweaters i have to admit, i don’t mind all that much at all!

 Dress: Debbie’s

Cropped sweater: (erica’s choice) c/o George at Asda

Shoes: Matalan

Hat: New Look

Bag: Modcloth

Here’s how Debbie and Erica have styled it so far, and on to Donna it shall go!

    The color combination in this outfit is spot on! Such a pretty mix of shades. I love the print on that handmade dress too. I think your cozy sweater looks wonderful with it!

    This is such a cute colour combination. Maroon is my favourite colour and I hadn't thought to pair it with mint! Great choice for winter to spring weather transition 🙂
