Thigh high...

I always love the Topshop sale and the reduced prices give me a chance to try things` that are more trend-led without breaking the bank. Ever since the 'Angelina leg incident' of 2012, splits in dresses and skirts have been a bit of a 'thing' and although this dress is so out of character for me, I can't help but love it. I would never normally go for a midi length but the flash of thigh (ooer) definitely helps to make it more wearable and I quite like how cool it makes me feel when paired with my boots. I feel like my style has been in flux recently (I never thought I would be buying such jazzy leggings for example!) and since clearing out my wardrobe, I have definitely been more experimental with my clothes. Who knows what I will be wearing next week?!

Dress: Topshop, jacket: New Look, belt: Miss Selfridge, shoes: ankle boots c/o Spartoo
 The shape of the dress itself is quite classic and reminds me of a 1940s tea dress (I think it's the sleeves that do it) although I doubt there would have been quite as much cleavage on show 70 odd years ago, I couldn't believe just how boobalicious this dress was! ;)


 The print and bright colours were what originally drew me to the dress and they helped to make an unfamiliar shape and style more comfortable for me. I just noticed that my belt is wonky in this photo and it is driving me mad, I only wish I realised before Mark took these photos!


Flashing a bit of leg and showing off my favourite ankle boots in the world, I am seriously worried that these will wear out soon and so far Betty London shoes haven't been added back onto the Spartoo website (although they do have them on their Belgian site) Is it too excessive to ship them from overseas?! 

Goofy face: model's own
Have you bought any out-of-character clothes recently?

Trying something a bit different is always fun. For me, that's anything with an ounce of colour! The dress looks amazing on you, especially that shade of blue. Love it teamed with the classic jacket and boots Xx

I absolutely LOVE that dress. It's fantastic and looks great on you. That big sassy print suits you so well. You should definitely make dresses like these "in character" :)

I love this dress and always regretted not buying it! You look wonderful and look forward to seeing you style it in the summer months, perhaps with flowers in your hair? Just de-vine darling! x

What a beautiful print! You always look fab in bright colours. I'm not a thigh split kind of girl but it works so well on you with this colourful dress (and it's not too high). Va va voom!

You definitely have the legs for a split dress. I quite like this trend as an AW one. And the dress itself is so beautiful.
