THAT Heidi dress...

Super flattering cut? Check. Swooshy skirt? Check. Gorgeous jewel colour? Check. It was inevitable that I was going to buy this dress as soon as I saw it come into the infamous Motel sale. I first wore it on New Years Day as it was comfy yet still looked like I had made an effort and I pulled it out for seeing the other of my best friends for lunch today. I love it when you find something in the sale that becomes a go-to item... talk about smug! 

Coat: Dannimac, dress: Heidi dress by Motel, faux fur stole: H&M, tights: Boots, shoes: Office
 I love the contrast of a neutral like camel with the zingy jewel colour of the dress and I think it really helped to emphasise the colour on an otherwise dull day... I love how Harriet styled this dress too, the colour of the tights really adds an extra dimension to the dress.


Faux fur to wrap up against the chill! I know every blogger and their dog has this stole but it feels so luxe and really helps to add a touch of glamour to an outfit...


I think the shape of this dress is super flattering on my figure and it is nice to have something that is comfortable, too. I love the fact that Motel have the same shape dress in different prints and colours, it makes choosing a dress much easier as you know that a particular style will suit you!
  

love the little block heel on these shoes, I am all for anything that makes my legs look longer without being uncomfortable...


As Mark was snapping away to get these pictures, a little old man asked if we wanted a picture together which actually turned out quite well :) 

Do you have any Motel dresses? What is your go to outfit?

Looking rather lovely Miss Fallon! I do like this dress, both you and Harriet look awesome in it, and the colour is awesome too. I have to admit I'm a bit tempted....

You look gorgeous in it and I love the colour! What is the sizing like? I am tempted by it myself but am always wary about ordering Motel as they can come up rather small xx
