Style: Wear that sunshine!

I know the weather in the UK truly takes the biscuit at the moment, but who is to say we have to give in to it?! so in true British form I’m rebelling.  I decided I needed to be optimistic about a range of things in my life, and the weather is certainly one of those areas that needed some encouragement! If you don’t fancy dresses and legs being exposed – might I suggest colourful jeans? 
The outfit I’m wearing is actually the idea ensemble for a wedding guest, I’m not a big hat fan so opted for a floral hairband.  The dress is quite a classic cut, and even though it’s quite short it’s still very girly and feminine. To finish this look off I’d go for a oversized clutch bag and a light coloured blazer. 

 What I’m Wearing: Dress – Topshop Bluebell Embroidered Prom Dress – £65.00, Shoes,  Kurt Geiger Nude Heels, Necklace – Miss Selfridge Yellow Beads, Headband – Topshop Cream Floral Headband

Wearing more colourful items is meant to boost your mood.  I’m going to try it for a month to wear as many colourful items (within reason!) and see if it lifts my mood…. and hopefully this wet weather!

    You look lovely! Sometimes you just have to defy the weather and wear what you want! And ofcourse wearing fabrics and materials that don't get damaged by the weather!!!!

    Thanks ladies for such lovely comments. I'm in utter agreement with Jacqueline – that the weather shouldn't defy what we wear! I spied the dress in Topshop last week and fell in love with the colour. There is another version that went in the sale but was quite a neon inspired colour… I love how subtle this one is. xx
