What I’m wearing – Good Friday

Hello Lovelies,

It’s Good Friday! It’s almost chocolate time for all you chocolate lovers out there!

Today see’s Mr Tramp and I head to the other end of the region to visit Mr Tramps family, his mother, brother (Twin 1) and his aunt & uncle who have flown in from Cyprus for a visit. Twin 2 is somewhere in Asia but I don’t think anyone is entirely sure…. maybe we could play Where’s Wally with him?

Anyways, I digress!

I thought i’d branch out and wear a dress. Mostly because I want to showcase my weight loss to see if anyone that hasn’t seen me in years / months can tell (even though they aren’t the type of family to compliment!) but seeing as none of my jeans actually fit me any more, desperate times call for desperate measures!

This is also entirely for Kathryn’s benefit over at the fab Miss Kathryns Miss Takes or @kathroooon on Twitter. I’m not a dress person at all but reading all of her dress OOTD posts certainly does inspire me to get my pins out more often. Sadly it’s not entirely practical for me to wear them on a daily basis so the opportunity is few and far between!

The dress I am wearing is the Georgette Spot dress from Simply Be. This was a bit too big for me even before weight loss so is considerably too big now but I have really nipped the ties in at the back and put a huge old belt on to keep it all together. The fabric is a bit clingy so I can imagine had it been a correct size, I wouldn’t have got such a good floaty effect on the skirt or looser fit on the top. Does that even make sense?

I’ve styled it out as usual in picture form… if I get a chance to take a snap shot, i’ll add that in or include it in this weeks What Katie Did.

Georgette Spot Dress | Simply Be
Formal cream and black Mac | George at Asda
Nude patent flats | Kurt Geiger Lola 2 
Red wide stretch “nurse” belt | New Look, non Inspire, old season
Nude patent vintage satchel | vintage but similar available via this ebay seller 
Black 70 denier tights | Evans Clothing

One thing I will say, I rarely wear double breasted coats buttoned up, I like to leave it open but fold the outer lapels back and button back on themselves which give a really unique and unusual look which I have to say makes the jacket look a little classier and more expensive. Don’t know why but it does.

Do you dress up for family events or just stay casual?

    I love this dress, and I love you in it. Well done! Did it last the day?
