Grecian glamour...

It seems like a long time ago now but I had a couple of days off a few weeks ago which coincided with the nice weather we were having. I have to say, there's nothing better than being a lady of leisure, especially in the week. It always feels like you are bunking off when you are wandering around a blissfully empty town haha! This dress was a bargain £5 in the Warehouse sale last year and I have been wanting to wear it for ages- thank goodness the weather played ball! You know how much I love maxis and this one is lovely. It is made from a lovely heavy jersey material and drapes really nicely. Cobalt blue is one of my favourite colours and is one of those that looks good on everyone as it is just so cheery! I felt really glamourous in this outfit and although I was just doing my shopping (Tesco has never looked so glam!) there's something about getting dressed up that puts a real spring in your step! 

Dress: Warehouse, shoes: New Look, bracelet: Accessorize
Apologies for the pose-y photo but I love the back on this so much! It also stopped the straps on the dress slipping down my shoulders which I really liked, there's nothing worse than having to constantly hoick stuff up! I went for fairly neutral make-up here, mixing the Nars Orgasm illuminator with my beloved Dr Jart BB cream for a natural glowy finish. Lipstick-wise I wore Max Factor Colour Elixir Lipstick in Pink Brandy- it is just such a lovely peach colour!


I really love this bracelet and it was perfect for tying together the outfit without looking like I was wearing a costume. I don't usually wear gold jewellery (unless it is pale gold in colour) as it can look odd on me but I think the warmness of it here makes the whole outfit feel more summery


I did feel a little (read very) silly posing like this but I felt super slinky in the dress and I wanted my Angelina moment! ;) I rediscovered these wedges in the bottom of my wardrobe last year and they were the perfect match for this outfit. The wedge is comfy enough to wear all day (assuming that the straps don't rub your feet, sob!) and they added some much needed height. I'm not very tall so maxis are pretty long on me so I do need a helping hand sometimes, haha!


What is your most glamourous outfit?

Oh wow, I used to love those £5 bargains! I got one earlier this year but they are a rarity these days. Blue is such a beautiful colour on you! You're such a stylish woman Maria, I love your outfit posts.

Such a pretty and glam look. I love the blue dress - the colour is beautiful. I think I need a few more maxi's in my life.
