Back in the saddle

Yeehaaa, Im finally feeling it. :) Summer and especially holidays do nothing for my creativity, I tend to get lazy when it comes to outfits. I have not felt quite at home in the last posts but now Im finally back where I belong - colourclashing like a madman/woman. :P

Perhaps Ive just missed playing around with coloured tights. Im well aware of the season but I just wanted to   take a dip and wallow myself in lovely autumnal colours. Im getting tired of bare skin, time to cover up. ;)
I owe everything to a very generous and kind lady living in UK who purchased and shipped this dress to me, Im sooo lucky to have this lovely frock in my wardrobe. :)

A close up, im quite fond of mixing prints. :) How cute are those swallows. :)

I cant get enough of pleated bottoms, I just hope and pray that they stay in, how the heck am I goin to iron them back? :P

I love these shoes, they have lingered in my wardrobe for several years, hardly worn, just waiting for the right moment I guess. ;)

What Im wearing:

Cardigan from HM (new)
Dress from Matalan (new)
Tights from Lindex (new)
Shoes from Bianco (old)

  1. That dress is adorable and mustard tights always make an outfit pop! The shoes is adorable too! Really a great outfit to start the week with! Today I wore jeans (colored of course) for the first time in months, so I suppose I have also started to get into autumn mode or at least the weather has...

  4. It's fabulous! The dress is so pretty, I love the swallow print. I bet the pleats will fall back in if you hang it up after washing, especially if it's made from polyestr or viscose. And mustard tights make every outfit better! xxx

  8. Gorgeous dress, I'm glad it made its way to you! I'm also loving the tights. It's probably going to be awhile before it's cool enough for me to wear them, but I can't wait until I can. They not only cover up, but also add a fun dimension to outfits.

  10. Oh, Izzywizz, your colour saturation is spectacular! Outstanding combination of elements - each piece is special and amplifies the effect of the others.
