New Season New Me!

May 30, 2019Mandi Morrison

As the weather is now looking pretty stable, and its looking a little more like spring/summer I am looking ahead to my wardrobe and the summer.

Every day for the school run you will find me in a tunic top, jeggings and either boots or canvas pumps, all three items are comfortable, easy to wear and don’t require any fiddly washing instructions or the dreaded ironing!

But sometimes I need something a little bit smarter, these days because I work from home I tend not to have to think about a specific work wardrobe, however one of my biggest changes this year is to push myself out of my comfort zone and actually start saying yes to events that I am invited to through blogging, therefore I may have to consider leaving my jeggings at home.

So when Fashion World asked if I would like to take a look at their website and choose some items of clothing, I knew I had to steer clear of my comfort clothes and look at something new.

Last year I took part in a photo shoot for an article in a magazine and the clothing choices were not what I would usually wear, however when I tried on the geometric jumpsuit I was actually surprised that it felt good and looked pretty great, with that in mind I decided to go for some longer dresses, but only being 5ft2, I sometimes have a problem with them being about 6 inches too long, so I chose some mid length ones, which were more like calf length on me!

 

The first I chose was a polka dot print midi wrap dress, when I wore it to the theatre I teamed it with a small pair of strappy black sandals, but it could also be dressed down with a pair of canvas pumps, or add a pair of funky tights and doc martens, it really is quite versatile. It is really comfortable and I felt really good wearing it.

The second dress I chose was a Neon Rose Floral Printed Midi Dress, this one I wore out for the evening when the weather was  a little chilly, so I wore it with brown winter boots, its a very silky material but washes brilliantly and requires only minimal ironing!

And thirdly this dress was ruched front A Line Dress in oriental, this one I wore with a pair of black leggings and a pair of bright coral canvas pumps, it was perfect for my trip to London with Xene for the National Camping and Caravanning Week 2019 launch event.

On Saturday I am off out to a beat boxing evening with Asa, now I feel confident that I actually have some different choices in my wardrobe for a night out with my husband.

    I love the polka dot dress and the oriental one. I literally live in dungarees or jeans and tee shirts at the moment, but I love dresses, I just prefer to feel more casual.

    It’s so easy to slip into wearing the same old thing day in day out. These dresses are lovely and refreshing change.
