A Casual LBD

 Nothing groundbreaking here but sometimes nothing will do unless it's an LBD with a checked shirt and today is one of those days! I love the combo of something more 'evening appropriate' with something as casual as a baggy shirt as I just feel like both items compliment each other so well. The shirt looks better for the presence of the dress and vice versa. Oh, and my Nikes of course... lets not forget those. I took these photo's after having one of those mad 'trying on' sessions when trying to figure out what to wear for an upcoming meeting. As I'm writing this I'm pretty much no further forward so I might have to head back up to my floordrobe and have a rummage.
I've been steering away from anything bodycon for basically a year whilst I try and sort my rolls out but a baggy tee or shirt really can cover a multitude of sins and for that I will be forever thankful. I also went bare-legged again which is starting to become a habit but with the lovely weather we've been having I'm basically using any excuse to get my limbs out... I'm not convinced it will last!

I know I'm not exactly making fashion history with this post but I guess I wanted to reflect how my style changes on a daily basis depending entirely on how I'm feeling. I'm thinking of wearing this dress to an event I've got coming up in London but with a baggy jumper like in this post. If you do take a peek back then you'll see that once upon a time, my legs did not glow.. and it was good. I think I'd been to Mexico a few months previous and my tan was sticking around a little. Ohhhh how I miss watching the sunrise and the never ending cocktails. Take me back there please?

Are you guys heading out on any summer holidays this year?
Go on.. make me jealous.
