It only seems apt that I am sharing the dress that the lovely folk at Christchurch based Kiki's Boutique kindly sent me. I am lucky enough to have popped into their Christchurch shop a few times and am looking forward to fitting in a browse around all the food this weekend. *EDIT* Kiki's is online only now, sob! I absolutely love the new season Emily and Fin collection, the prints are spot on and I hear they have been designed in house this year. I went for the synchronised swimmer print and I am sure you'll agree it is pretty perfect. I wanted to team it with a pair of navy anchor tights but didn't actually get round to ordering them, doh. It would have been the perfect combination - must get on with placing that order!
Instead I decided on a pair of pin spot tights, my absolute favourite navy cardigan and the comfiest navy shoes from Lotus Shoes. The shoes are from their Relife collection, they have leather insoles and memory foam in socks which makes them more comfy than your favourite pair of slippers. They have a block mid height heel and cute Mary Jane styling, the best combination. I'm getting better at wearing navy and black together, I think it's helped by the tights being sheer. I just can't do navy opaques, I have tried and they just feel so wrong to me! I've finished my outfit with the best necklace ever, my Tatty Devine lobster pal. The neckline of the dress is a little low for me - I am not used to flashing any flesh these days so the necklace helped me feel a bit more covered up plus I think it finishes off the outfit. The lobster is pretty special, it does a little dance as you move!
