Mustard Seeds...

Tuesday, January 04, 2011

It wasn't really warm enough to wear this dress last week, but when the temperatures here changed from -15 oC to +5 oC it actually felt warm...
This is really only a summer dress but i threw it on with thick knitted tights and a boyfriend cardy to make it seem less summery..











Cardigan: Primark, Belt and dress: H&M, Tights c/o Tabio, Bag c/o Matalan,
Brogues c/o Schuh, rings: Scrabble ring xmas gift, dull gold ring: Topshop, gold band: heirloom.

Managed to get my new laptop fixed thank goodness, but i had already deleted everything off it so now im back to using my old laptop until I have the time to do it all again, what a pain!
I also need to find someone who can lend me photoshop or a serial key? anyone out there able to help? I edit all my photos in photoshop and need it for my new laptop..
Back at work today and beyond tired so Im off now for a cuppa and an early night..oh so glamorous!

P.s A lot of people where asking where the heart tape measure necklace featured in the last post (and this one) was from its by ASOS.

  10. Ah I have this dress too but I never really thought about wearing it in the winter, as I've always thought of it as a summer dress as well. The way you've styled it looks awesome though, I love the contrast of the yellow and the grey. The dress looks great with the colour of your hair too! Lovely :) xxx

  14. I am so blessed to live in a state where I can not be season-ist towards my clothing. I LOVE a summer frock all cozied up with a dress. This looks lovely!

  15. I think summer dresses are perfectly acceptable in the winter months so long as they are accessorized properly! If anything, bright colors should be required in the dull, dreary, cold months to make everyone happier! So I would like to thank you for brightening my day today. You look lovely! xo.

    Oh and I'm obsessing over your necklace, so amazing!

  20. Oh that's lovely! I had high hopes of wintering up my summer frocks but there's just no room in the wardrobe and I've had to pack them away for the time being :(

  21. Amazing inspiration! I've been matching grey with pale pink and other nude shades lately, yellow /mustard seed would be a perfect alternative - and much brighter ^^

    And I ♥ your necklace, very cute:>

  39. I heart the yellow and white polka dot. Sometimes you need a little color in all the gray. And the tape measure necklace, so adorable. Such a wonderful outfit and brings a little sunshine during these dreary winter days.
