In The Mood For Day Dresses & #Passion4Fashion Linkup

I’ve been really loving day dresses of late. I’m not sure if its to do with the winter weight gain (oh those pounds will just not shift, more on that another day) but with my jeans all feeling like they want to strangulate me dresses have become my new fave.

This week i even wore a dress with biker boots to the park with my son. It can be so easy to shun dresses and just keep them for ‘best’ or for a day when you feel it will work, but with the right footwear and accessories a good day dress can work for all occasions.

This denim dress from Laura Ashley is absolutely perfect for daywear.. and of course it has pockets which makes it pretty much my idea of dress heaven.

I dressed it simply with this gorgeous silk scarf tied like an actual tie, and matched the grey in the scarf with the grey tights. I like to break away from my standard black tights sometimes (if you’ve been following the blog a long time you may remember i used to wear ALL the colourful tights.. yellow, blue, orange, bright pink.. you name it i wore it on my legs… hilarious looking back at it!!) and the grey work so nicely.

Through spring i can see me wearing this with some loafers or even trainers. Denim dresses really are such a great staple.

So yes, day dresses are where it is at for me right now..

Are you a day dress wearer? Do you have any favourites?

    That’s such a cute denim dress! ? I really need to make more of an effort to wear my dresses. I’ve been favouring shorts a lot recently! I’m wearing a dress today though ?

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you are having a lovely week ? We are getting a lot of rain at the moment which is a welcome change after the heatwaves, haha!

    I love your denim dress by Laura Ashley! Those pockets are the best and I love the cut of the dress. The scarf is so pretty, the colors are fabulous! What color lipstick are you wearing, it’s beautiful!

    Just gorgeous I’m a big fan of a day dress and definitely have more dresses than trousers. They’re an easy fix, aren’t they, and make you feel feminine and put together even though it’s only one garment x

    I love wearing dresses during the day! And I don’t have a denim one so I think that needs to change!

    Have a great weekend and thanks for hosting!

    I love your outfit here, the furry coat and the denim dress. They are both fantastic.

    I hear you on the winter weight gain—I’m leaving tomorrow for a vacation and I’ve packed all dresses, no trousers at all! Dresses are just more comfortable this time of year. I love your pink fuzzy coat, too!
