Cool checks...

I was so chuffed when I spotted this dress in the ASOS sale, shift dresses have been my go to for work recently and I love the check print on this one. Tartan always makes me think of Autumn and I can't wait to add chunky cardigans (wouldn't this red cardigan look ace?) and my winter boots to this.  Although it looks like it is made out of cotton, the material is actually a stretchy polyester that makes the dress super light and comfy. The arms are pretty oversized but I like the slightly boxy look they give the dress - it's not often I feel quite so cool in an outfit! I love how happy I felt in this outfit, I am a firm believer in wearing fun clothes and this outfit definitely is!

Dress: ASOS, leggings: Tesco, shoes: Clarks, necklace: Dorothy Perkins
Although I love the oversized fit of this dress, I wasn't sure how to style it. Originally I was going to belt it but I opted for my fake pearls instead. I like the slightly eccentric 'lady of the manor' look they give this dress - I can't wait to be a grumpy old lady, I can't help but think that I will be great at it ;) This is the perfect glossy red colour and picks up the red in the pattern perfectly. The mornings may be getting darker but my lipsticks just seem to get brighter... 


I could have worn nude tights with this but leggings are just so darned comfy! I just need to find a nice high-waisted pair that fit my stumpy legs now... any ideas?


What's the most fun outfit in your wardrobe?

I dream of being a lady of the manor - one of the ladies I know lives in a manor house and it's amazing. I'm always so jealous!
