Today I am wearing a tea dress – appropriate really as my “afternoon tea” started at 8.45am with Cadbury’s chocolate animals, soon to be followed by home made lemon cake and flapjack. Not a particularly healthy start to the week – but that’s the great thing about dressses; no waistbands!
I love dresses as they are such an easy outfit -and no wardrobe should be without a good day dress. I layered a long sleeved top underneath for – yes, you guessed it – warmth and also a boyfriend cardigan over it, to keep it casual. I love boyfriend cardigans but some can be hard to wear as they finish out your widest point. Wearing one the same colour as the dress meant that the divide was less obvious than it had been with a pink one that I had had on previously. I sometimes wear a shorter fitted cardi with this dress and put a skinny belt over the top, just to dress it up a bit. The red shoes added a bit of height and colour but later on in the day I swapped them for my biker boots – which I was glad about as I had to run down the High Street to make it to ballet on time.
