I realised the other day that the vast majority of my ‘going out’ dresses are black. This is good because black is slimming, easy to accessorise with and generally quite classy. However, it’s also a bit boring. So when I saw this blue bodycon dress in the H&M sale I thought I would buy it in an attempt to become more colourful.
I love the combination of cobalt blue and coral, so I have paired it here with some wedges from Primark. The belt is from Dorothy Perkins. The necklace I’m wearing is from River Island and is also a recent sales aquisition. I always try and do my jewellery shopping during the sales as things usually always get reduced to half price (or less!) and you don’t have to worry about finding what you want in your size.
I’m still not entirely convinced that blue is the new black, but I think I like this dress enough to keep it. It seems to like creating unflattering arrangements of fabric around my tummy area, but on the other hand it does make my boobs look awesome haha!
I’ve got a busy weekend planned which includes watching Role Models, making and icing lots of cupcakes, helping a friend move out of her flat, going out for Mexican food and margaritas, going clubbing and taking a trip to IKEA. Hopefully somewhere inbetween all that I’ll have time to catch up on reading all your blogs!
