those dusty denim days



[Denim dress - Newlook, Floral dress - Newlook, Belt - ASOS, Footless tights - ASOS, Flip Flops - Accessorize, Sunglasses - H&M]

This is an outfit I wore on one of my last day of my Holiday. At the moment, I am still attempting to get through all my dirty washing so my current attire is old pjys or one of the few dresses I didn't wear on Holiday (not exactly blog material!). I loved this outfit because firstly, it kept me cool and secondly because I tend to steer clear of layering in the Summer but somehow felt it worked this time. I can wear this denim dress on its own but really enjoyed putting it over dresses or skirts cause I felt like it gave a real laid back vibe as well as being on trend. I can't say I am one of those girls who looks flawless, you know? Perfect make-up, hair exact, ironed dress and polished shoes (not that you can polish flip-flops...) I always considered myself to look a tinsy bit messy. Personally, I think it works for me and so many others but sometimes it would be nice to look perfect. For everything to be just so. But we are who we are and I guess I should just go with it.

Do you prefer the polished look or that 'rough around the edges' style?

Let me know what you think of my outfit?

Awww it's been such a long time without stopping by!!!! I'm sorry!!! But As I can tell you look amazing! I love the outfit, the combination of the belt with a navy blue dress is so cute, and the denim vest is so fashionable too!!! xx

I'm a rough around the edges sort..since I take what ever is in my wardrobe and mix it up.

I got this really cool shirt dress that has made an excellent jacket similar to this..that is perfect for the cold office. I have one in floral and one black and white check. I had no idea I would use them this way. But I love the extra layer with extra-large ribbed tanks I can wear with leggins.

Great update!

It's alway a good idea to match floral print and denim. Your dress is cute so are you :

I love how you wore the denim dress over the floral dress! So cute, and such great layering :) I like a rough around the edges style more too! It's too difficult to look perfect and polished all the time anyway :P

well, I think "perfect" is just a word and it's easy to say the word but in real life there hardly is such thing as "perfect". it would be boring. having some edge and spice is so much cooler! btw, I love layering and to be honest your current look reminded me I was wondering about a denim dress of mine some time ago.. I thought about layering of course, so I definitely like your idea. and it's a lovely ensemble overall.

I love that you can find so many things to do with your dress. Like the belt too.

You are very inspiring.

It defo gives your outfit a laid back look, and I love the navy blue floral dress. I would have finished this outfit off with some brown sandals.
