Winter and I may not be friends, but I am very much friends with a bit of faux fur. It’s probably one of the few good things about the colder seasons that you get to wear it – for me at least anyway. It was also about time my furry hat (well, headband technically) appeared in another outfit post!
When you’re styling a monochrome dress, there’s always the temptation to bring in colour. If you’re me, that basically means adding red accessories everywhere. Knowing that I always do this, however, here I am making a very conscious effort not to – go me. But actually, I think keeping the colours simple lets this dress really shine.
The Jackson dress is another of Hell Bunny’s autumn/winter triumphs, so it didn’t take me long to use my discount code on their website (it’s cicim20!% by the way) to snap this beauty up. Especially not after I’d spoken to Miss Amy May who’d already bought it and realised the skirt wasn’t going to be too long for me! (Considering I had a dream this week I bought a Collectif dress and it was ankle length when it turned up and that’s not actually that far from the truth… And yes, my dreams really are that boring. I had another one that Hell Bunny released a dress in their new lighthouse print and I was disappointed by the neckline. I’m a riot.) I mean, it’s on the longer side, sure, but I think I’m getting away with it. I love wearing it – it’s comfortable and the neckline is adorable, I just need to find more places to take it for a spin now before spring is here… Oh and if you want to see how it looks on someone who isn’t 5′ nothing, check it out on Amy. The fit is very true to Hell Bunny’s usual sizing (follow the size guide).
Will this be the last of my very wintry outfit posts? Er, no. Let’s not be silly. There’s a lot more winter to ‘love’ yet…
