P1170702I have another pattern mixing outfit to show you today. There hasn't been much variety in my posts lately but I've been really busy and outfit posts are often the fastest to create. I also love fashion more than makeup and I have a few new outfits to show, so I guess many outfit posts makes sense anyway.  This is my most worn dress at the moment. The bicycle print is really sweet and unique. I love how there is netting underneath which creates a lovely vintage silhouette, but at the same time it's not as excessive as some of my dresses which makes it very wearable for every day. The cut out design is new for me; I often go for other necklines in Kitten D'Amour dresses but I now love this one too. This is an old design from Kitten D'Amour which I purchased from the Kitten D'Amour Buy, Swap and Sell Facebook group. I'm so pleased I joined the group. I can find designs I've never even seen before and which are even more limited that the designs currently sold in the stores. Despite many of the pieces commanding a very high price, this dress was an absolute bargain so I'm very lucky for that. I also found a very reputable seller so I look out for her for sale posts.

As you can see I'm really into pattern mixing at the moment. Unintentionally today's outfit appears to almost be a reverse of the outfit in my last post. Bicycle print and polka dots is probably quite a unique combination! I am also super in love with my glitter flats at the moment. During the course of my ankle injury I valued my pretty collection of flats when I couldn't wear heels. This particular pair are new from one of my recent ASOS orders. They were an absolute bargain; I can't believe some of the reductions available on ASOS in the sales. I'll show you a number of my recent purchases most likely in my next post; can't believe I haven't done a 'New In' post for so long. 

I'm going to try and return to running tomorrow. My doctor has advised that I'm allowed to run again; I'm so scared in case I injure my ankles again but I missed it while I was recovering. I'm going to have to take it extremely slow and not worry about the time/distance (which certainly doesn't come naturally to me) because the pain and inconvenience of my ankle injuries is not something I'll easily forget.

That is one of the cutest dresses I have ever seen! The pattern is so cute and I love the style of it. Also it is almost autumn here so the color reminds me of the changing leaves.

Denise Sabs said...

Yes, it is really wearable, not exaggerated, I loved the patterns and the dress cut! Very beautiful colors and an exquisite combination! You always look so sweet, so beautiful, like a modern pin-up, something I like, not totally vintage-vibe looking, but a bit and modern! So beautiful!

What a lovely printed dress! I really like your polka dot cardi too :)

I hope running goes well for you - always scary trying to build up strength again after an injury, but hopefully it's easy and not too taxing for you to get some running in again :)
