Buttoned up...

I have never been one for buttoning my shirt/blouse up to the collar, I think if you have any semblance of a chest, it can make you look quite chunky so I convinced myself that this was a trend that I would never participate in....One raspberry pink dress later and my favourite vintage shirt succumbed to this blogger cliché! 

Dress: Primark, shirt: vintage, bag: c/o Accessories Direct, shoes:Primark
Once again I have paired polka dots with my wonderful sparkly Primark dresses! I love the raspberry colour of this and I think it is a worthy addition to my overflowing wardrobe.


I just love the fuller skirt with this, uber flattering if you have massive childbearing hips like me!


I embraced the fluffy hair with this look, despite the fact it makes me look about 5 with this outfit! 


  
Collar detail provided by my dad. He came outside after thinking that there was a dog running around on our driveway and found me trying to take outfit pictures with the tripod and a remote. When he stopped laughing he offered to take some photos for me, so thanks Dad! 



I styled these dresses in 3 different ways (see here and here) but which did you like the best?! 


Do you like the buttoned up look? Which version of the dress did you like the best?

Although I loved how you styled the other two I think this is the one I would be most likely to wear! I really love the hue of the dress with the polka dots :) xxx

This outfit is gorgeous, definitely going to give the trend a go now.

I'm not usually one for buttoning up either but this shirt looks great buttoned up with the dress :) My favourite look would have to be with that gorgeous pink blazer!

I love all three outfits, but this is probably my favourite.
Such a versatile dress!

I love collars and how they can be layered under EVERYTHING. I don't care if it's a cliche because it looks fabulous haha. So in love with that blouse Maria!

I love this look on you, I'd definitely try it! I hardly unbutton my shirts now, I much prefer the prim and proper look. Lol at your Dad, mine is always so bemused when I take photos outside!

I absolutely adore the last two outfits you have posted. That pink dress is gorgeous, I have a couple in the same cut and I would have never thought to wear a shirt underneath. Definitely going to try this! :) xx

Love all the ways you've styled these dresses so far, think they're fab and so obviously versatile. Looking hot as ever.

This outfit is perfection! I love the buttoned up shirt and dress combo, and such gorgeous colours too!

If you've got a high necked dress on anyway you might as well! I really love the raspberry with the polkadots. You also look really pretty and pinky-flushed!

Gillian said...

This is such a good idea, I have the same problem with buttoning up shirts! The polka dot collar looks lovely with the raspberry dress, it's such a pretty colour!
