Blue Suede Dress

I feel like I've done loads of outfit posts recently, but that's what I've been enjoying doing and I'm also hoping to really push my outfit posts to be better by venturing out of my back garden and into the big bad world to take my pictures (eek). I took my last outfit pictures all by myself which was hella scary, so this time I bribed Nick with coffee. He takes better pictures than my tripod anyway.


Ramble over, onto the outfit. Last time I went shopping I had a bit of a 'OMG I look fat in everything' moment - you know when you've been hiding behind big jumpers all winter and then you realise it's suddenly time for spring and you are in no way prepared? Yeah, that. Eventually though I found this dress that flatters me in all the right places and I had a 'hallelujah maybe I will be OK this spring' moment instead.





I love the colour, the fabric (which FYI isn't real suede, didn't suddenly get a money tree) and the fit. I've actually been looking for a button down skirt for ages, but they're never quite right on me so I'm over the moon that I've found a button down dress instead! While it's still a bit too chilly for no sleeves I wore a plain grey top underneath. Paired with my Truffle Collection boots it's the perfect combo for that in between period where you feel like it should be spring by now, but actually it's still a bit nippy.

Dress - AX Paris via New Look (current, not online)
Top - H&M (old)
Boots - Truffle Collection via Asos (out of stock)

What do you think of this outfit? Are you a fan of suedette?

  4. I don't think I've ever taken outfit photos on my own; I always have to have someone take them for me, haha. Venturing out of my balcony was a move I slowly and gradually made when I first started outfit posts, but gah, it pays off so well! Also, bribing with coffee is always a good idea; I'd take that bribe any day, hahaha

  11. Those photos look amazing! Is that the Humber bridge? I love finding clothes that flatter me when I'm not feeling very body confident!
