It’s fair to say i have a huge crush on stripes. Tops, skirts and now dresses, i just can’t resist. You see, for me it just feels like a fail-safe formula. Want to look smart but comfy? Then throw on some tried and tested stripes in one way shape or form, and you shan’t go wrong.
On Sunday morning hubby said he was taking us all out for Sunday lunch (yippee from me as no cooking!) After going through 3 different outfits and some ‘I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR’ screams, i settled on this dress and loved it! I threw it on (literally threw on, as we were heading out the door, as mentioned those 3 previous outfit changes had made me hangry and desperate to get out the door and in to the restaurant) my new camel boyfriend coat, tartan scarf and beautiful black riding boots. It may have been the relief of food or the fact that it was nice to be out and about after a 4 day battle with a horrendous cold, but i LOVED this outfit. I was warm and snuggly, yet the stripes always make me feel well pulled together and fairly chic.
The fun pattern mixing between the stripes and tartan is a nice modern nod to a classic look. I finished off with one of Yosa’s new a/w winter necklaces and i was happy,happy, happy.
I can just tell this will be my go-to autumn outfit of choice for many an occasion.
