Pretty Me Retro?



Dress: c/o F+F at Tesco. Denim Jacket: M&Co. Scarf in hair: Vintage.

What seems like forever ago I was sent this darling dress from Tesco as unfortunately the original dress I opted for which was beautiful was tiny and when I managed to exchange it said dress was sold out! This dress is something I wouldn't normally go for as it's straight up and down and sleeveless but the pretty pastel colour and adorable detailing with the lace won me over! I love the colour and feel of the fabric it doesn't feel like that uncomfortable and slightly sweat material the lining is what seems to be cotton (YAY!) and it's something you could wear on the hottest day, quite like the last few days and still feel okay. Sleeveless is something I fear over as I'm always paranoid about my upper arms but this year I say no more! If it's warm I shall have them out as sometimes a misshapen cardigan can completely ruin an otherwise lovely outfit! Here I paired it with a denim jacket purely because I liked how it looked and when I took these it wasn't 26 degree's!

I felt like channelling my more retro look with this quirky scarf tied in my hair and a backcombed ponytail behind it. I've not done my hair like this for so long that I can't decide if it still suits me or not! Don't get me wrong I love the scarf in hair look but I'm not sure as to whether my heavy fringe now makes it a little too much. I finished the look with my usual red lipstick and I was good to go, I really hope you don't tire of my red lipstick obsession but I just feel right with a cherry coloured tiny on my lips! I decided to face my fears and wear this out in public... I did feel a little OTT for the supermarket but I didn't get too many odd looks so I may try this again!
