My love for Whistles is well documented on this blog and although I am a massive fan of their oh so cool designs, my bank balance is less fond. As a result, I spend a lot of time stalking their designs on eBay (obsessed me?!) and it's always very exciting when I actually manage to win an auction. This little red dress (yes another one!) is my latest purchase and I spent the day after it turned up, swooshing around Cheltenham in it. This is definitely a 'look at me' dress and it was perfect for putting a spring in my step and cheering up a wintry morning! I have been feeling a bit down recently so this outfit was just the confidence boost I needed. It was also the perfect blank canvas for the beautiful Clarks shoes that I was lucky enough to be sent to feature (scroll down for more details!)

MAC Lady Danger is a gorgeous orange-y red and although it is quite bright against my
pasty pale skin, I couldn't resist as it was the perfect match for this dress. I didn't realise how low cut this dress actually was and the top button is pretty loose so I spent most of the day rebuttoning it and trying to avoid the disapproving glances I was getting in Waitrose (oops!) My hair seems to get shorter and shorter (funny that!) every time I got to the hairdressers- I would love to go as short as the lovely Lil but I'm not quite that brave...yet!
You know I can't resist a natty bow and this cinches my waist in nicely. I'm not usually a fan of sleeves on dresses but these ones balance out the lower neckline and mean that I don't have to cover up with a cardigan- always a good call when I am layering up in winter! Any dress with pockets gets a thumbs up from me and these drapey pockets are ace.
When Clarks got in touch about working with them recently, I was absolutely over the moon, they are a long term favourite of mine and I was so chuffed to be asked. I was sent a voucher to use instore and after a lot of umming and aahing, I picked these beautiful pointed flats. I love the snakeskin printed leather and slight metallic sheen - they are some good looking shoes! The leather hasn't softened yet so they're not the most comfortable but I know from experience that given time, they will be like heaven for my feet!
Which outfits put a spring in your step? Are you a Clarks fan?
P.S. Clarks sent me a voucher to trial some shoes but if I didn't love them, I wouldn't feature them!
