OOTD | Lace and jewels

Chi chi lace dress | Fashion blogger outfit post

Today's blog post comes to you from underneath a million blankets, as I'm dosed up to the gills on Benylin. There was me thinking I'd missed the winter flu, and it has struck, with vengeance. Excuse me while I lay a ton of bricks on my chest.

These snaps, on the other hand, were taken when I was muuuuuch better (oh, those days!), and I think may well be the pretty ensemble I've ever put together. There's a girlie girl in me deep down afterall.

Lace dress worn as skirt - c/o Chi Chi
Black sweater - H&M
Knitted cream collar - c/o Alice Hannah

If there was ever a dress made for prancing around like a princess, it's this one from Chi Chi. The skirt is so voluminous and lush I was twirling around all over the place wearing it! Perhaps not one for popping out to get some milk - but I certainly don't think it's the reserve of posh dos. Teamed with my trusty opaques and a slick of pink lippie, and it's very "me".

Also, how sweet is this knitted collar from Alice Hannah? It's perhaps more bejewelled than I would usually choose, but I think when dressed down with a simple sweater it makes it such a wearable accessory.

More to come this week, when I'm feeling up to it. Heading to Birmingham with some of my mates (oh hai you lot) on Friday to see my teenage favourites Maximo Park - so expect another sweaty, indie photo diary at some point over the weekend!
