At the weekend I was official declared a god parent to the beautiful Sebbie, and I decided to go for a dress that would be suitable chic, responsible, as well as reflective of my personality and need for colour. I have to admit the crazy weather of one minute being like spring to the next being freezing cold did play with my decisions a lot but I finally found this gorgeous coral flared dress from Warehouse.
I have to admit I haven’t shopped that much in Warehouse over the past few seasons but I have been so impressed with the new collection that I couldn’t resist this super flattering dress. Not only was it reasonably priced at £60, which is pretty good considering the exquisite tailoring, lining, and accompanying belt it comes with, but best of all it isn’t too short, which has been my biggest problem on this Christening dress hunt.
This dress is perfect for the spring/summer with its beige belt and I had planned to wear with nude peep-toe heels, but for the wintry/rainy Sunday I decided to opt for black accessories, so I change out the belt for a black one so I could team with tights, a three-quarter blazer from New Look, and I even brought out my pointed toe laser-cut heels out of retirement, well that was until I got covered in mud so the trusty patent Russell & Bromley brogues came out!!!
My Style Details:
Jewellery plays a big part in most of my outfits, especially in this one as I didn’t seem to take a bag, and I decided to wear my favourite pieces – my Thomas Sabo charm bracelet and my half-butterfly Swarovski crystallised necklace.
I have more than 10 Thomas Sabo charms that Paulie picks up for me regularly for my birthday, our anniversary and Christmas, and I have to admit I always find it hard to choose which ones to include. In the end I settled for a mix of classic, new, and oh so cute – with my first ever charms of the pink crystal heart and elephant, my latest charms being the panda and moo cow, and two of my favourites have to be the Eiffel tower and my Barbie head silhouette heart.
