I did make the statement in an earlier blog post that one of my fashion resolutions for the coming winter was to wear more colour. Staying on the path to my style goals, I have purchased a beautiful pink coat that would add colour to any grey day. A colourful coat is a beacon of cheer on an overcast day (of which many will come) and it is almost impossible not to notice bright outerwear when out and about in the colder months.
A few weeks ago, when I visited the Tate Modern with my family – we were stopped for a security bag check at the door. The lady asked my husband with a serious face, “Are you carrying any sharp objects?” “Just my brain”, replied my husband with a poker face and then smiled. She did not smile back. His response coupled with her completely blank “that’s not funny” face had me and my older child in peels of laughter! The blanking of his joke was funnier than if she had laughed because the situation just organically progressed in a hilarious manner. In a similar way, I was eager to wear my uber comfortable midi-dress a few days ago and without much thought teamed it with my new coat and snood scarf. I loved the result of the ‘throwing together’ of colours and textures, proving that sometimes casual last-minute styling works better than a planned outfit.
I love wearing midi dresses with boots in colder weather as tights and a vest underneath ensure warmth and style at the same time. There are so many beautiful winter floral dresses available at the moment and I have listed a few I like below.
I hope you enjoy this lookbook and as always, thank you so much for visiting my blog. Have a great rest of the week!
