Cami Dress

Thursday, 24 April 2014



I think this look is quite a versatile look as it can be worn for anything; an evening out for drinks, a dinner with friends, an evening with family and so much more. I think this outfit is so classy and is a picture of sophistication. It's still a girly look yet smart and it isn't at all boring, in my opinion anyway. I think sometimes the easiest way to look sophisticated is to stick to monochrome but this is a pretty colourful take on a smart look - perfect for spring! Here's what I wore...

When I first bought this jacket (it's listed as a jacket on the New Look website but I really don't think it would keep anybody warm, it's more of a cardigan in my opinion) I really liked the pattern, although it did remind me of the Spanish bullfighters heavily embroidered jackets, it was quickly lost in the midst of my wardrobe as I just wasn't sure what to wear it with! After having a well needed wardrobe clearout I hung it up to make sure I'd try to get some wear out of it.. and voila! I think it fits so beautifully with the dress.

I love this cami dress, I didn't want to get the standard black or white so when I saw this green colour I was swoon. It looks lovely on, and falls really nicely, although I must admit the fabric is quite unforgiving. When I first looked at it, it looked too short for me - as most dresses I get tend to be - but on it isn't too bad. It does however, have a slit on the side which is definitely something to bare in mind, it could lead to accidental bum-flashing haha! For a sophisticated look I added a black clutch and black court heels which smarten up any outfit. 

Accessory wise I chose to add gold jewellery. Looking over these photos I'm surprised I didn't add a necklace but the cardigan is structured in a way that the collar is very high up and so a necklace isn't really needed, but when it comes to accessories it's always up to personal preference anyway. I decided to keep it minimal with this look (for a change).

  2. I almost bought that jacket! I love the colours and it works so well with the dress.

    I do the same, buy things that then just sit in the wardrobe forgotten about. It's definitely good to have a clear out to remind yourself what you have.

    I've never tried shoes from H&M! No idea why?!

    1. Haha no way! We have similar taste then ;) I'm so awful at that, I'm trying really hard to limit what I buy but it's just way too hard, every time the seasons change I use it as an excuse to shop some more and of course my blog has meant I shop more too! there are some great finds in H&M, you should try out some of their shoes!

  5. I really like the look :) and the earrings go great with the outfit! Maybe you should have worn the bar necklace that Steph got you?
    I would definitely wear it out but I'll need a belt >_<

    1. Thank you, photos were a bit blurry though I thought - a bit out of focus which is annoying, I need to play around with the settings to get it just right! & yeah I agree, I don't know why I didn't wear a necklace tbh, must have been in a rush :P X

    1. I put the long legs down to being tall, let's say it's a perk of being tall! Thank you! Sometimes it's fun to try out different looks, I'm quite girly in my style though :) X
