Yesterday morning was a lazy Sunday morning; we sat in bed catching up with emails and playing with Rufus, who wanted to see us on one of his rare morning appearances. I wasn't in work and Mark wasn't in until 2pm, the sun was shining and we decided to go out and get some fresh air. We walked just a few steps from the house to the lane that leads to the Beacons, which is lovely.
This pretty dress was a Christmas gift from my mum, I'm pretty sure I saw it on someone's blog before Christmas and it had me at first sight (was it you?!). I love the crisp white collar and the little sleeves, the shape of the dress is lovely too. Surprisingly it was warm enough to not wear a coat, but thick tights and a cardigan were needed. I never wear a dress or skirt without tights anyway, my legs are that part of me that I don't like! I often find myself wishing dresses were that bit longer, but I'm not sure I'd find added length any more flattering on my legs - I wonder if wearing different coloured tights would help, because black is so defining & bold?
I'm quite fussy when it comes to jewellery, and this means that I buy less but I'm more careful in my choices. When I saw this Cinderela B necklace up for grabs on Steph's blog, I had to enter. I'm so lucky to have won the giveaway, I've found myself reaching for this necklace often. There's something about the delicate black agate in contrast with the chunky 22 carat gold chain that I just love. The first thing I thought was how versatile it would be, and it is. I love how the gold chain just peeks out from underneath my collar in this outfit and toughens it up a tiny bit. Cinderela B jewellery is handmade in Spitalfields, London and they have some beautiful Liberty fabric pieces.
How would you style this gorgeous necklace?
