#2014BloggerChallenge: Spring Outfit of the Day

Regular visitors to the blog will know that I'm not much of a one for outfit posts. It's mainly due to a combination of not being able to afford lots of new clothes (though I suspect Nick would say differently) and having quite a set style - weekends, for example, are always jeans and jumper/T-shirt time unless I'm going somewhere a bit posh - and, if I'm brutally honest, being a bit boring style-wise. So when the latest #2014BloggerChallenge email dropped into my inbox and I found out it was a spring outfit of the day post, I have to admit I was a bit stumped for what to wear.

To me, spring style can be summed up by one thing: florals. But I don't own a huge amount of floral things - a couple of dresses and a skirt - and I was a bit stumped for how to style them in a way that didn't seem too boring or 'worky'. Then I spotted this adorable little daisy print dress in Primark and something suddenly clicked.

I decided to go for a super-girly look by adding a cardigan with bows on it, an Alice band, ballet pumps and a bag with a bow. I think it works really well with the monochrome and then just the little dash of pink lipstick. This is the sort of outfit that I might wear to work in the summer and then to go for drinks in a beer garden with friends afterwards, or perhaps for a wander round the shops and a nice lunch somewhere. I also think it could work really well with black tights and Mary Janes in the winter.

Here's the full list of what I wore:

Dress - Primark (still in stock!)
Cardigan - Joy (different colourways)
Shoes - Accessorise (similar)
Sunglasses - supermarket somewhere in Australia
Alice band - Topshop (old)
Bag - Primark
Necklace - Accessorise (old)
Lipstick - Topshop Brighton Rock

It was actually really fun to put the outfit together and then pose for the photos - I'll admit at first I felt a bit silly but by the end I was actually getting really into it and doing various silly poses, so it's definitely something I'd like to try again. Also a huge thank you to Nick for his willingness to play the photographer and to put up with me asking him to get me posing in all sorts of different ways!

And of course it wouldn't be complete without an outtake...

What do you think of my outfit? Is this the sort of thing you'd wear?

    1. Thank you! It's a lovely dress, I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of this in the winter as well as the summer.
