What a busy busy week.. it still the summer holidays over here and that means trips out each day with my boy, and even the occasional date evening with the husband. Its been busy, busy, buys but good.. so so good.
I love having this time with Neo and i’ve been packing it full of things to do each day which does mean that yes.. no actual outfit post as such today (although its still an outfit post of sorts as i am still wearing clothes ?)
But what i wanted to show you all was this amazing little dress i picked up from Next a couple of weeks ago. Its an absolute delight to wear and something i shall be getting a lot more wear of through autumn too. As you allllll know, i love an item that can be worn lots and lots, and this ticks the box perfectly.
On the first day i wore it as a dress (below), out for a date with the husband i felt lovely in my swishy shirt dress. I paired it with some tan block heels and my little straw bag for a relaxed evening meal with Salvatore. I removed the tie waist and added my own tan tassle belt to cinch in the waist.
Then a week later (above) i wore it to the play gym with my son* , where i undid the buttons to wear like a kimono/shacket. I tucked the collar under also to give the lines a more clean appearance and more kimono like. I added in my fav jeans, a plain cami and finished it off with my red comfy mules and a pop of yellow with the bag to bring out the yellow flowers.
And those aren’t the only ways i shall be wearing it, come the cooler months i’m looking forward to pairing it with my tan knee high boots and a big chunky knit cream cardigan.
Or even layering a thin turtle neck knit underneath and some tights and ankle boots. I’m yet to try it with black also, so maybe something worth dabbling with there too.
This dress really is one that keeps on giving, my favourite kind of dress.
Do you own any dresses that just keep on giving?
