This pretty purple dress caught my eye in Outfit and i picked it up and then put it back. When i was back in there again this weekend, i saw the dress on one of the mannequins dressed to perfection and i decided that it was a sign, the dress needed to come home with me. I don’t often take inspiration from mannequins, but sometimes those big dollies get it spot on. The dress is made of a light jersey fabric and is just so very comfy and a great length. I opted for my knee high boots for a boots-meet-pleats option. Plus, its cold and i’m wearing tights and socks under there, but nobody knows (apart from you guys obvs). Again i feel like a deserve a pat on the back for this dress as i can see lots of great options for its future. Next up i’m thinking with a chunky knitted sweater over the top which will show off the pleated skirt part wonderfully and some ankle boots..
It’s quit nice to be able to find nice dresses again. I’ve been going through a real jeans/trousers phase, which i have to admit, i’m not completely out of yet. I just keep turning back to tried and tested jeans and a nice sweater formula of late. Its just easy. But Needless to say i really do love this dress, which excites me. Oh i do love having possibilities with a new addition to the wardrobe, it makes me happy to get dressed in the morning..does that make me quite pathetic? ah well, its the truth, i can’t help it! I get excited about getting dressed, especially if i have upcoming events.. there is nothing i love more than outfit planning. This time of year is the best, what with all the Christmas doo’s and my birthday (eeekk!), I’ve also just been eyeing up Alt-J Tickets for hubs Christmas present, which i think this outfit would also work quite nicely for, the concerts not until Janruary, but i do like to be prepared with my clothes at least 😉
Do you ever outfit plan way in advance?
Or do you just grab what suits on the day?
