Red Dress, Bare legs (& Passion4Fashion Link Up!)

So for the last week the Uk has been basking in some beautiful spring weather. Blue skies with the odd cotton wool cloud sure makes for some happy Brits.  These photos were actually taken last Sunday and the warmth was *almost* there enough to go bare legged. I braved it for the photos but then nipped home and put the pasty white legs bag into hibernation under a pair of tights, heehee! I have to say feeling a breeze on the old legs sure felt exhilarating, a wee taste of things to come, sunshiny warm days. 

Just lovely!

This dress was my last purchase on the Sunday before the 100 day shopping ban commenced on Monday 6th Jan. It was kind of a rash purchase in a panicked “i’m not going to be shopping for 100 days, gimme all the new stuff i can get my hands on now” frenzy, but thankfully i still love it, admittedly this is the first time i’m actually wearing it, over 2 months on, but i think i was saving it for Spring, i guess it just feels perfect for sunny days. I also managed to squeeze in more wear of the beautiful George biker jacket before sending it on its way for #FrockSwapUK, as much as i will miss it for now, i cant wait to see how the girls will style it!

Dress & Sunglasses : New Look (from January, sadly now sold out)

Jacket & Necklace: c/o George at Asda

Shoes: Matalan

    Love the femininity of the dress paired with the edginess of the jacket! Thanks so much for stopping by EPWL 🙂

    It's a great look. I hope the UK doesn't do its usual thing and have an amazing April full of sunshine and then start snowing on me when I am walking there in May!! Fingers crossed. Thanks so much for hosting.

    That was a good idea to buy some things to save for the shopping freeze! Love the florals with the biker jacket! I often find myself thrifting winter things in the summer that I forget about and then am excited to find deep in my closet 🙂

    Oooh, I LOVE this outfit! Red is such a great colour on you + plus I love the accessories and jacket you paired with your adorable dress! Yay, for spring weather too!! xoxo

    I love this dress. I ordered it online in the sale but it was too small and the next size had sold out. It looks great on you. You really suit red. X

    This dress is soooo beautiful! I am glad that it is finally warming up a bit, this winter seems to be lasting forever!

    thanks for linking up with Fab Favorites!

    Ahh, I'm jealous of your sunshine! We had about two days of sunshine up here, both of which I spent in work, nose pressed against the window, hating life. Ha! In other news, you look beaut in that dress. Really suits you! xx

    I love you in red! I think red was just made for brunettes. I sported bare (pasty) legs for the first time Friday. And today, we have snow. Sigh. Anyway, you have great legs! Thanks for hosting, looking forward to being on next week.
