Outfit

Hi everyone! I can't believe how often it's been raining over the last few weeks. It's very uncharacteristic; I cannot remember too many other times like it. I usually hate the rain more than words can describe but this time I actually don't mind it. It's so warm and cosy to be at home, especially after a long day at work (I just bought unicorn print PJs too). The main downside is that it's pretty hard to take outfit pictures at the moment. I wonder how the rest of the world does it. In saying that, I came to realise that umbrellas make amazing props for outfit photos. I bought this dress recently in a $10 sale on the weekend while shopping with a friend. It's an Angel Biba dress; a brand which I only discovered a year ago but I'm becoming more impressed by. They have some unique designs and at $10 it was an absolute bargain. The only downside is that it's slightly large at the front so I prefer to wear it with a cardigan. The bright pink is fun and versatile and it provides a great basis as a skirt. I like the detailing at the top of the dress and it makes for an interesting look when layered with a cardigan. I decided to wear my green cardigan because I adore the combination of green and pink. I think it's a real stand out colour combination. Also I like the deep v neckline on this cardigan. It's great to pair with my dresses. Sometimes a higher neckline will clash with the neckline of a dress. I also decidesd to wear my Marc by Marc Jacobs mouse flats for the first time in awhile. I'm in the habit of wearing heels to work because it feels more dressed up so I haven't worn flats in ages. I must make more time for my adorable little mouse flats

Awe Imogen... the green and pink combination looks so lovely on you.. you look sweet :)

I know how you feel about the rain... that is how I feel about the snow... I hope I have seen the last of it for this year :)

I'm amazed that you managed to acquire that Angel Biba dress in my absolute favourite colour for only $10 !!! What a fantastic bargain. I can't overstate how much I love that shade of pink! It looks gorgeous with your green Alannah Hill 'Having Said That' Cardigan. I'm hoping to style an outfit in the exact same colours next month. I love the look of green and pink together. The swingy look and drape of the skirt are beautiful and the embroidery/applique on your Alannah Hill cardigan is very pretty too. Your umbrella looks like a good one and has a lovely print on it!
I hope you get some sun soon.

Not a lot of people can pull of this colour combination, Imogen, but you do it so effortlessly:) And it's been raining here too, but I don't mind right now coz it's better than snow...hehe

FASHION TALES said...

I got stuck in the rain over the weekend a bit ago. I love the print on your umbrella. You look lovely dear. xx/Madison :)

Carylee said...

Ahhh bad weather is the blogger's nemesis! You made the most of it though and I love it! And I am the same as you. I only like rain when I don't have to be anywhere but home! Http://morepiecesofme.com

great post ♥
beautiful umbrella :)

Mica T said...

Love your silver mouse flats! I wear my mouse flats to work a lot - every now and then I'll surprise someone new in a meeting with them when they look down and exclaim that my shoes have faces, haha!
You have such a pretty floral umbrella too - you must be so cheerful using that when it rains! :)
I find it really tricky to take photos in the rain as I can't hold the umbrella over myself and my tripod. I end up having to take indoor photos or get my camera wet, neither of which are ideal.

I never thought that green and pink could look so well together! You always surprise me Imogen! :)
And I know what you mean, the weather here in Latvia has been really mocking us, as it has been raining for 3 days straight! I have never thought of doing an outfit photo shoot in the rain, but I guess it could be interesting! :)

Everything about you is just so classy and adorable! The cardigan has such great detail and your bag is gorgeous with that print. And mouse flats, aw how fun! I have to wear flats to work or I would be in pain, haha, so I've resorted to try and find cute sneakers somehow :)
Have a beautiful day!

Alternatively, it's actually stopped raining in the UK for once (lets see how long this lasts!). April showers are probably on the way aha. xxx

I always love the way green color works with shades of pink. Such a lovely attire turned out! You look so fresh and feminine, dear Imogen:)
By the way, happy Friday:)

You always look great in Green, Tia. And your bun is always so round and perfect, how do you do it? I super love that Pink Dress. The dress along the bag and floral umbrella are perfect cheerful pieces against the rain. It is rainy here today, too.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Ada. =)

Mira said...

Omg Tia you look adorable. This is one of my favorite looks so far. That pink dress is marvelous and the flats are way to cute. So pretty. Sorry that it's raining so much. I hate the rain too. Have a happy Friday!!
