OOTD | LOVE Tartan biker dress

LOVE Tartan zip shift dress | fashion blogger outfit post | Metallic rucksack

The rain stopped today for the briefest of moments, which meant Vickie and I ventured out on my lunch to take some snaps of this incredibly cool new addition to my ever-growing tartan collection. Obsession? Pssh. I call it LOVE.

Patent boots - Matalan

You might have seen Katy looking red hot in it back in January, and I think it's testament to a good frock that you can style it in different ways. I love the asymmetrical zip on one side and though tartan is pretty popular at present, I don't think it's a print that will ever really date. In Spring, I'll be wearing it with a contrasting knit with the little collar popping out, but for now I'm saving it for a night on the razzle with my Sheffield pals in a couple of weeks.

ALSO, special mention should go to Robyn for introducing me to these amazing Matalan patent heels. I've had my eyes peeled for a pair like this (call it a longing to channel Camille) and I CANNOT believe these are a mere £24. Jog on ninety quid Zara pair!

I'm super chuffed to read I've been included in a Top 50 UK Fashion Blogs list today, along with some other ladies and gents I'm sure you will know and love. I've never won any awards for what I write (heck, it's definitely still a hobby for me) but it's such a lovely compliment to be included in just one of the many lists of good 'uns. If you don't already follow these top 50, get a wiggle on!

  9. I usually steer clear of tartan because it reminds me of my old school uniform, but this dress looks great. And I think I need those boots in my life! x
