Famous last words!

Isn't it always the way?! Foolishly on my last blog post I may have said that I thought I had the boho trend covered for this season!! I then, however saw this fabulous dress on my lovely friend Jane's Instagram feed and I had a feeling this boho thing might not be over!



Fast forward a couple of days, a fistful of birthday H&M vouchers and a discount code (10% off all orders with 3146) and it is now in my possession! 



Now beware...this comes up large! I am wearing a size 6?! It's another dress that sweeps the floor in my trainer-upped feet and it's quite low in the front....a cami may be needed! I'm off in pursuit of some last minute sun during the fast approaching half term and I'm thinking this will be perfect for the cooler holiday evenings with my vintage Levi denim jacket and some Converse! Not only that......it may well be very useful for some dressy Christmas events.....I do love my purchases to see me through a multitude of wardrobe scenarios!

Right, on to my outfits from the past few days!

Mango dress, past season similar here

Feeling and looking a bit fuzzy here.....just cannot get the photographer to play ball some days!


Zara jacket, ancient similar here
Uniqlo merino sweater, past season similar here
Zara jeggings, current (birthday present from my lovely lil sis!)
H by Hudson boots, past season similar here

So here I am eating my words! One thing I am sticking to however is my no coats until November! I am desperate to get some wear out of all my lovely jackets! So far so good in that department, I think you will agree! ;0)

Until next time!

    Hello!
    Can I ask you how tall you are? I've been looking at those Zara jeggings but wasn't sure, at 5ft8, if they'd be too short!? And are they tight on the ankle? I can't seem to find any that are tight enough on the ankles (they're the only skinny parts of me!!)
    Lovely outfits :-)

    1. Hi Charlotte! I'm 5ft 6". I don't think these would be too short on you as mine are quite wrinkly around the ankle, they are tight around the ankle so I can get away with the wrinkling with ankle boots if that makes sense?! They are so comfy, described as high elasticity! They are fab for the price! Hope that helps! :0) xx

  4. The dress is the perfect colour with the perfect print but not the perfect length for a titch like me. Ah well - I will just have to admire it on you instead.

    1. Lol Sue! You would trip over it in at it's present length but you are a dab hand with a needle so you could take it up a bit?! At least try it and see! ;0) xx

  5. I will just have to admire it also, would love it for over Christmas ....... but I would lose half the dress in re-alterations. Michelle, I love your looks normally, but recently you are on fire! Amazing honey. x

    1. I am looking forward to styling it Helen! I love the fact that it's navy instead of my usual black, a subtle little change for me and I think it makes the dress look more expensive than it is! H&M really seem to have nailed it with their dresses this season, I've seen so many lovely ones on other blogs xx

    1. Thank you Lynne! You can never find a dress when you need one for an occasion so I guess it's good to snap them up when you see them!! Think I will get a lot of wear from the recent dress purchases I have made! xx
