Dress for any weather...

The best dresses are those that you can wear throughout the year and this Peacocks dress has proven a favourite choice even now that the weather is colder.  I swapped my yellow sandals for some slightly more practical mustard flats and some grey woolly tights to keep me cosy. 

Dress: Peacocks, cardigan: ASOS, belt: Miss Selfridge, tights: Primark, shoes: Primark
 My favourite grey cardigan and mustard belt were the perfect match to pick up the colours in this dress and you know how much I love being matchy-matchy!


Slightly bleary eyes courtesy of a nice early morning start! I have been using my Macadamia hair oil set recently (my lovely gift from #SWBXmas)  and my hair has never felt smoother! I will definitely be buying the full size of this once I have finished off the taster set.


These woolly tights always remind me of the ones I used to wear at school all those years ago and they are great for wearing with those slightly shorter skirts and dresses in winter. I love them so much that I have at least 3 or 4 pirs in constant rotation- not bad for a Primark bargain! 


Which dresses do you keep coming back to all year-round ? Do you like being matchy-matchy?

I really like wearing thick dresses in the winter with warm tights. It feels kind of rebellious! Love the colours, the blue and mustard look great together x

Love this dress and think it looks great with the tights - I seem to be living in thick woolen tights at the moment.

I love dresses that will carry you through seasons. I really like the pop of colour with the yellow belt xx

Such a pretty dress! I love the print on it. I wish I could wear dresses in the winter - I abandon them all for jeans.

Ooh, is the hair oil good? I got some too but I've been too chicken to try it out yet. x

That dress is so great. And wool tights - do not get me started. I still actually have a few pairs from early secondary school that are still in rotation. They are my favourite winter staple.

Thanks for the heads up on the primark ones- I assumed they only survived one wash... clearly not - I'll be buying some soon!

Keep warm!

I love how you stuck to the mustard/blue colours & just made it more winter appropriate, it really pops against all the grey. Your hair is looking so healthy & glossy too, so tempted to try the hair oil out!
