OOTD : Dreaming of you….

OOTD : Dreaming of you….

Hello Lovelies, 

Bit of a tenuous OOTD title, but if you remember the song Dreaming of You by The Coral, then you’ll see what i’m getting at!

I have a very important, yet not too formal event coming up with photo-ops galore and I wanted a great new dress to show off my weight loss, look summery AND smart.

On my usual trawl of websites, I spotted this gorgeous coral polka dot dress on Simply Be. Sadly the picture I have used in the styling looks pretty red but the other snaps look a truer coral.

I’m debating buying it but this is how i’d style it out… I think seeing a potential new outfit laid out like this always helps me decide YAY or NAY.

I’d swap the skinny belt for a nice wide belt to highlight my trimmer waist and lengthen my legs with some great cut out wedges to add a bit of interest. A plain black clutch and plain black cardie for if it’s chilly would finish my outfit.

Dress | Simply Be (£40)
Belt | New Look (£3.99)
Cardigan | Black, generic brand
Black frame bag | Lux de Ville Femme Fatale

What do you think, does styling an outfit out like this help you decide on it? I like it because it helps me be more organised as my time is limited to prepare outfits!

    This is a great idea, I always try to work out how I’d wear something before I order it. There is a dress i’m lusting after at the moment and i know how I will wear it dress up and downed already!

      Also rock this dress with a beehive hair do I think and you will look stunning =)

    I’ve been looking at this dress too, I love it. I never really style outfits beforehand – maybe I should which would stop me wasting money on clothes I never wear! x

    I have fallen in love with this dress, thank you for bringing it to my attention. I’m a little bit coral obsessed! x
