Grey Swing Dress (& #Passion4Fashion Link-up!)

 I well and truly have that Friday feeling today, its been a long week of 5am wake up calls (cheers for those, oh darling husband) and a busy week with Yosa (yay!), plus my new exercise regime is really testing me to my limits and when I say limits I actually mean I am on the verge of being broken.
It hurts to even think. The problem with exercise is i want instant gratification, after 5 days of doing some high intensity workouts I want rock hard abs and thighs that could crack nuts.
But alas I’m not even close. But I shall plough on with hope that a super fit bod will be rewarded to me if I persist.
In the mean time I’ll just be sat with a hot water bottle on my aching bones 😉

As for today’s post, a simple swing dress from last weekend. I love how a swing dress hides a multitude of sins.
I added in my favourite Mango biker jacket, some really old boots and my new rather funky studded bag.

I’m off for a haircut today and I can’t wait, going to go a little shorter I think (that’s if I don’t chicken out 😉

Happy Friday all!

    So glad to read that Yosa has had a successful week and that life has been busy but good. Loving your outfit today, the leather moto jacket was the perfect touch.

    Love your stripes, and those grey boots are awesome! I am totally the same way with diet and exercise. I want the results the second I start!

    Such a fab swing dress! Great colors and stripes. It looks wonderful with your moto jacket and grey booties.

    What a gorgeous dress! Love the boots you paired with it!

    You are most certainly going to see results quite quickly, Rachel, and it will feel awesomely badass (pardon my French)!! Try some Fish Oil too. Works beautifully for those sore muscles (also Glucosamine, Arginine, BCAAs) xoxo

    Oh I can't wait to get back to doing proper hardcore workouts after my slipped disc is 100% better, Rachel – the most I'm doing is walking and it's so frustrating!! I actually envy you having aching muscles from exercise rather than a painful leg from an injury :((

    Anyway – sob story over! The is is SUCH a cool look – a little different but I totally love it on you. The boots/stripes/studs all work so well together… Winner!!!! Again!!

    Have a great weekend (any plans?) and thank you for hosting, speak to you soon my lovely 🙂

    What a lovely outfit! All works together great. I like the jewellery.

    I saw your shorter hair on IG, and it looks fantastic! You can pull off so many different styles with your hair, straight or curly, long or short, up or down. They all look great!
    And I love your dress, the perfect mix of chic and comfy.

    That's some NICE dress!x

    You can't beat a really good biker jacket in my book. Looks great with that dress, perfect combination!
