I’m joining in with Transatlantic Blonde’s fantabulous What I Wore Wednesday linky this week.
So, here I am ……
Black cashmere cardigan – Ralph Lauren
Rabbit print dress – H&M
Black leggings – TopShop
Darla black patent boots – LK Bennett
Sweetie bracelet – Links of London
Watch – Michael Kors
Babydoll pink nail varnish – Leighton Denny
(with sparkly glitter topcoat from Claire’s)
I spotted this dress in H&M on Saturday and I just fell in love with the bunny rabbit print so I just couldn’t resist it. The dress is skin-tight and has a low scoop neck so there was no way on earth that I could get away with wearing it just as it is. I am quite aware that my days of wearing tiny Lycra dresses are over. In fact, I’m not sure I can ever remember being able to get away with that look to be honest! But I loved the print so much that I knew I would be able to do something with it, I had to have it!
So to par down the dress, I put it with a black fitted cardigan. This helped to camouflage the boobage area and also hide the bit that comes below the boobage of course. I’ve had four children and there is no hiding my mummy tummy I’m afraid but the cardigan definitely distracts from my wobbly bits. Plus my favourite (and ancient) cashmere cardigan is my comfort blanket. It never fails to make anything look and feel better. I also went with black leggings rather than tights, as I wanted to keep the whole look very casual.
My gorgeous watch was a Christmas present from my Other Half. He was naughty really as we were supposed to be doing small and thoughtful this year but he went and did small and sparkly. I’m not complaining though as I’ve been coveting this watch for as long as I can remember! I love it to bits.
My manicure was courtesy of my lovely twelve year old daughter. The Leighton Denny in Babydoll pink is one of my favourites and I often wear it on my toes. I got it a couple of months ago in my Glossybox and the sparkle is thanks to my daughter’s stash of glittery nail varnish from Claire’s. Classy, huh? Maybe not! But we had great fun doing it and it made me smile while it lasted. (I have since switched to a much more muted mushroom colour from BarryM to counteract the sparkly overdose at the weekend!)
