Here’s fashion week again, pushing me out of my daytime-dressing comfort zone ever so slightly. I would not normally think to wear a pretty, floral, ankle skimming dress for anything other than a dinner or a wedding (for a person who has been to precisely one wedding in their adult life I spent an awful lot of time thinking ‘oh that dress would be so nice for a wedding’) but dressing as ‘the best version of me’ over fashion week has got me thinking – why not?
A dress as lovely as this – I received a compliment on it from almost everyone I interacted with this day – should not be confined to special occasions. I want to wear it with a leather biker jacket and chunky black sandals or little ankle boots, I want to wear it with trainers in the spring, I want to lose the belt to make it a little more casj.
For swanning about doing nothing in particular on the final day of fashion week I paired it with this dream coat which I bought while in Paris at The Frankie Shop, cute red booties and some ‘statement’ earrings.
