OMG, No dress in sight!

The title of this blog post is quite ept. I hardly ever wear anything other than a great dress. I live in dresses and to some, it may seem boring, but to be frank, I don’t care; dresses are my style and I’m unapologetic about it (because surely that’s what a personal blog should be about?!).

However, I do like to break from my nom on occasion, and this outfit post is one of those occasions. I went to dinner a couple nights ago with the ever lovely, Hanna. We headed to a lovely Italian restaurant and ate like the little piglets we are ;p.

I found this skirt while looking through the Next online sale earlier this year. It’s something I would never normally wear because it’s hardly shy and retiring, but I thought it was really great and I loved the colours. Next is known for being quite pricy, but I got this skirt for £8! Total bargain. With skirts of this nature, it would be the norm to pair it with a black top, but I didn’t want to do that; so I paired the skirt with burgundy. The top is very light and isn’t too strong a colour to take the focus away from the skirt – I really like this look.

NB: I’ve decided that looking down is the way I like to pose at the moment. I’m not really photogenic, which doesn’t particularly bother me, but finding a pose to suit and one which makes me feel comfortable, is key with a blog like this – I’ve found mine….for now. Also, thanks to Hanna for taking my pics! :)

Skirt: Next (on sale)
Top: Next
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Tights: Boots
Shoes: So Fabulous (via Very)

Side note: I’ve been doing my regular M.I.A thing with social network – Twitter, Facebook and the like, are not on my agenda currently. I like to take a few days, or sometimes a week or so just to assess things without looking at these things. I know it’s not for everyone, but I like my sanity and a break is what I need (other than posting about this blog post, obvs!). I’m sure I’ll be back on it properly, next week….at some point.

Hope you’re all well - ‘til next time folks :)
