The first of December marked the beginning of Dressember, a challenge I’m taking part in with a bunch of lovely ladies (some of them fellow bloggers) via Facebook.
The premise is pretty obvious – we have to wear a dress every single day of December. On days when it’s not practical, a skirt or a tunic will do, but the basic idea is to get out of jeans and t-shirts and start wearing all the gorgeous dresses we undoubtedly have hanging in our wardrobes…
Now for me, that doesn’t necessarily constitute a ‘challenge’, as I wear dresses about 85% of the time anyway. So I’m pushing it one step further, with the promise to wear a different dress for each day of Dressember.
I’ll blog weekly with my outfits so you can see how I’m getting on, and I’ll also be posting daily on the facebook group.
So without further ado – here’s the first installment! These are all a bit dull because it’s been so cold and snowy that I’ve been forced to wear long sleeved things that’ll look passable with my fitflop boots. Here’s hoping the snow clears and I can get back into some more fabulous pieces next week!
For day one, I wore a frilled woodland print dress from New Look over a Forever 21 long sleeved top, with my favourite Butterfly by Matthew Williamson necklace (£16).
Day two, I went for a Luella-esque dress from Warehouse with a pelmet detail, topped with a heart buckle belt that came with a River Island skirt a few seasons ago.
Another River Island offering on day three, a sheer tunic/dress worn over that faithful Forever 21 top, with a black slip underneath and a chunky chain necklace from Primark.
For day 4, I wore the floral and polka dot Simply Be dress I also wore to judge their modelling competition, with a skinny patent belt under the bust. The Butterfly by Matthew Williamson necklace made a second outing to finish it off!
Day five, and the weather has got a bit milder meaning I can eschew the long sleeves finally. This lace-trimmed floral dress is from Pearl Lowe’s Summer collection for Peacocks. I added a black belt to cinch it in, as this range seems to be quite generous around the waist.
