If in doubt, wear a floral dress...

This dress is one of those items in my wardrobe that is routinely moved to the 'to sell' pile and yet I never quite manage it [and not just because I am lazy and can never be bothered to eBay stuff] It's not the most flattering dress I own but it is easy to wear and on those days where I feel like I have nothing to wear, I always end up pulling it out of the eBay box. This dress is like an old friend, comfortable and flattering, even with the minimum of effort...

Dress: Therapy from House of Fraser, cardigan: Matalan, belt: vintage, shoes: Accessorize
 Accessorized with red lips and natural make up...

Not a big fan of how 'crispy' my hair looks here, my Percy & Reed finishing polish has seemed a bit too heavy for the hotter weather, I think I need to go back to my Aussie conditioning milk....
...and my favourite vintage belt, I love the width of it, so many belts are either too fat or too skinny and the gold buckle appeals to my inner magpie...


Finished off with nude fishnets and patent red shoes- I love nude fishnets for adding a bit of texture and when I saw that Accessorize was selling them, it's safe to say that I stockpiled a few (!) pairs! They are perfect for making a comfy outfit a bit more interesting and I would definitely recommend these as comparable to these Jonathan Aston ones


Which clothes can you just not part with? How do you jazz up a 'comfy' outfit?

Lovely outfit, the dress looks great. I'm a big fan of nude tights too, especially in summer.

love the detail on the buckle. You can always jazz up an outfit with some bright lippy and a clutch bag x

I love minimal effort clothes, especially when it's so hot. A floral dress is probably the best thing to have in every closest! It's great for any day and any occasion.

I have a floral dress not too dissimilar to this from Primark that I bought for about £3 and love to hate. I wear it for days around the house like every Autumn with tights! I love yours with all this red, its so pretty!

I have a million things that I keep meaning to sell, but I keep wearing too. At least if you end up keeping it, this dress looks great on you! The colors in this look are so fun :)
