The dress has been hanging on my wardrobe door since it arrived so I could marvel at the beauty of the print. Though I am dressed like it is the depths of winter (it is sooooo cold today!) this dress is perfect for regular August weather too. The dress is nice and lightweight and has cute sleeves so would work just as well without the cardigan and tights. It comes with a skinny belt too but I am not a belt person so left it off. I am hoping the weather will sort itself out and I can get my act together and take photos of lots of the me made dresses I haven't yet blogged. It feels like I have a mountain to climb, 36 unblogged dresses and no doubt counting. I am so much happier now I can wear my contact lenses again so hopefully that is enough to spur me on.
Dress: Uttam Boutique @ Yumi Direct*
Shoe boots: Clarks
Watch: Shore Projects*
I am now the lucky owner of a Shore Projects watch. I have been admiring them from afar so was thrilled to get to choose my favourite and a strap to make it really mine. The first collection of four watches are inspired by the British seaside. I went for the Portland - white face and gold detailing. I decided against one of the polka dot straps that I was initially drawn to and kept it classic with a grey nylon and leather strap. The strap mechanism is truly a thing of beauty, you can easily change the strap in a few minutes and it's foolproof meaning you don't have to worry about it then falling off. I can do it easily even with my nails! They are longer than normal as my nail tech is on holiday so they are just over three weeks old and it's taking me longer than normal to type. Not used to the length and keep hitting two keys at once. I really love the packaging too, well thought out and really compliments both the brand and the watches themselves.
