Midi Dresses with Edgy Boots & #Passion4Fashion Linkup

After a week of snow I found myself desperate to shun the jeans and wear a dress. It’s fair to say this season for me has been all about pretty dresses but worn with the juxtaposing ‘edgy’ boots, and when i say ‘edgy’ i mean anything that’s a little more masculine or with buckles and studs, as it makes a rather nice contrast to the pretty dress.

For me it just makes dresses feel more wearable for my daily life, which if i’m honest doesn’t really require many pretty dresses (housework, blog work and trips to the supermarket don’t require much on that front).

Gone are the days where I would buy clothes for a lifestyle i didn’t even have and then leave them with their tags still on in the wardrobe, just waiting for a certain occasion so they could be worn, but sadly, most of the time,the occasion never arose.

But i’ve always been a pretty dress kind of girl (actually that’s not entirely true, if you ask my mum she will tell you i was a tomboy for most of my youth and would often wish i was a boy, lol!), and I love how trends have now come about so that many items are more wearable. Years ago i don’t think i would have ever have put a midi dress with chunky boots or even trainers, but style is ever evolving isn’t it, and it seems to have evolved for women to wear things that they love but are also practical, just like when ladies first delved in to wearing slacks and trousers from the constant wearing of dresses or skirts, style evolution through the ages continues, and i think that us women have it pretty good on that front these days and I for one will be super happy to watch it continue.

Do you ever dress pretty but make it practical for your lifestyle?

    I love dresses with boots! And with a leather jacket it is perfect for me! Great look.

    That is a beautiful dress and I love the tougher leather jacket and studded boots with the floral, great combination šŸ™‚

    Iā€™d love a pair of studded boots like that, I will need to keep my eye out over winter.

    Thank you for the link up!

    Hope you had a good week and you have a nice weekend ahead! We have family visiting so it will be a busy but fun weekend šŸ™‚

    All the time except for formal of course . I’m just more comfortable that way. I must dig out a dress to style this way though. Im guilty of keeping them for a lifestyle I don’t have. Must change that. Have a good weekend x

    This is the perfect way to make a dress a little warmer for colder days. I love the idea of wearing statement boots with a midi dress.

    Rachel the dress you are wearing is very pretty! Is it from Hush I bought a blouse in the Hush sale with the exact same print?

    Boots are my saviour in wearing pretty much anything that I want. Slip dresses, midi skirts, vintage gowns ā€“ they all work with boots! You look so effortlessly stylish here x

    A dress with boots is the perfect alternative to jeans at this time of year. The dark floral print looks fabulous with the studded boots and biker jacket!
