OOTD: Springtime

I love the layer shedding that happens in Spring. There is something about this wonderful transition season where you can still wear jackets but not have to cover your legs up. Fashion wise, I wish it was spring all year long! 

Dress: c/o Scarlett & Jo available via Evans
Necklace and handbag: Colette
Heels: Target
Earrings and sunnies: eQuip

This gorgeous dress is part of the Scarlett & Jo Prom dress collection and it's not hard to see why it's become a wardrobe favourite. With it's bright colours and mesh décolletage, I literally feel like I could wear it anywhere and be the best dressed babe in the room. 

My favourite thing about this dress (apart from the fact its available in sizes 14 to 32) is the cut. I have unbelievably short legs. I'm 165cm tall and about 120cm of that is torso. Okay, a little over exaggeration yes, but the point is that the cinch of this dress hits right at my natural waist, a modern wonder in fashion today. Never once did I feel like I was pulling or rearranging the lines of my outfit, it sat perfectly over my curves and draped in a way that I felt confident in all day- sitting or standing. Sizing wise, I'm wearing the UK24 here and it's a little big around the bust and shoulders, I think the 22 would have been a spot on fit for me. 

I styled the outfit up with some basic platform heels and monochrome stripes, I'm a huge fan of floral and stripe mixing. Plus how rocking is this zebra necklace with its fluffy eyelashes, it gives me lash envy every time I look at it! Lastly, big hair, a dress this chic and classic deserves big hair! 

How would you wear this dress? 
What's your favourite fashion season? 


  1. Pretty! The dress looks great on you.

  2. You look Great in this floral number and you should wear it again and again. .

  3. This outfit is amazing! You seriously look like a Hollywood starlet.

  4. I love the mesh part, but then I would, because I have at least 8 mesh tops similar to the mesh here which I got from Ezibuy which I wear underneath all kinds of things, particularly tank dresses. :)

    I LOVE the Zebra necklace, too!

  5. This s a fabulous outfit!! I'm dying over the awesomeness that is that zebra necklace!!

  6. I just checked the website and it really doesn't look like much at first glance, not something I would want or even consider buying. Except for your gorgeous body in it!! Completely changed my mind and now when I get another job this will be the first thing I'm buying. It's GORGEOUS on you!
