A Shirt Dress with Mules and a Blazer (& #Passion4Fashion linkup!)

Being late May i have been craving some nice warm weather. We haven’t really had it yet, but i live in hope. So i’ve just decided to go with it and the legs have had a bit of fresh air. I’ve been wearing jeans constantly lately so it was refreshing to wear a dress for a much needed change. 

And what’s better than in a nice new dress and heels that didn’t (technically) cost me a penny.

I was so pleased as it was that time where my Tesco Clubcard vouchers popped up into my inbox (for my foreign friends, these are a clubcard scheme where you build up points with every pound you spend and in this case points most definitely make prizes!! Or shoes and a dress in this case), plus they are doubling up all vouchers for clothes …. Aannnd voila! 

New shirt dress and mules that i have had my eye for weeks. They’re bloody gorgeous and i love them. I’ve been trying them on every-time i’m shopping and have kept on an eye on the sizes, making sure to move the size 6 to the back of the rack whilst i decided whether to buy them or not , so when the vouchers landed i decided now was as good a time as any! 

These mules are gorgeously soft and the heel is a great sturdy block, making them surprisingly more comfy than i expected, i couldn’t decide if i wanted them in the tan or the black, but ended up going for the black knowing a lot would go with them this summer. 

Two things i can see me living in this summer, shirt dresses and mules..Happy Days (as long as it warms up a bit that is)

So yes; Free shoes and a free dress equals getting the legs out and for a very happy Friday… Plus after today i am off for 12 days from the ol’ day job and we are off on holibobs next week to Cornwall! 

I’m sooo excited!

    You look fantastic! This outfit is great. The mules look nice and as you say are quite comfy. I think I may need a pair myself.

    That striped shirtdress is so pretty and I love ytour slide sandals. The black blazer polishes up the look. Well done, Rachel.

    Looking good Rachel, that's a really nice dress and it looks great with those fab mules. I'm saving up my clubcard vouchers for hotel vouchers this year but I normally use them for clothes! Whereabouts in Cornwall are you going to? I went there last summer and wrote about Bude, which is gorgeous: http://www.porcelinasworld.com/2014/08/vintage-guide-to-bude-cornwall.html
    Hope you have a really wonderful holiday and look forward to some holiday outfit photos on your return xx

    Just craaaaaaaaaaazy gorgeous as usual, Rachel – good choices on the mules and the shirt dress!! I wonder if you were as cold as I was on my latest shoot… we had to stop because I couldn't stop shivering in the end :((

    Have a wonderful weekend, hope you're well!
