The Amy Dress
We’ve finally reached that special point of the year when all of my outfit posts have to be prefaced with the disclaimer that:
A) Yes, I was wearing a coat.
B) Probably a cardigan, too.
Actually, it was surprisingly warm(ish) the day these photos were taken. Not quite “prance around with bare arms” warm, obviously, but certainly, “whip your coat off for a couple of minutes to get some quick outfit photos,” warm. Which is good enough for me.
This dress is called ‘Amy’ (Aside: Don’t you just love it when brands give their clothes names? It saves me having to do it myself…), and I’d been coveting it ever since it appeared on the Boden website, so I was naturally keen to get some wear out of it, bare arms or not. Luckily, I think this is the kind of dress that will work all year round: the fabric is a cotton sateen, which is dressy without being OVER-dressy, and I just so happen to have a pair of peep toes in the exact blue/teal of the check pattern, which will work perfectly with it in summer.
I may have been willing to take my coat off for the photos, however, but I had to draw the line at peep toes, so instead I’m wearing the Dorothy Perkins ankle boots (plus a pair of matching tights) I bought this week. This is actually the second time I’ve worn this particular tight/boots combination this week already, so, having never owned green tights in my life before, I’m now thinking I might need to stock up on them. It stands to reason I would get a lot of use out of green tights, though, doesn’t it? As for the boots: I’m honestly tempted to stock up on those, too. You know, for that inevitable day when I wear them to death, and then I don’t know how to dress myself without them? I can’t be the only one who does that… can I?
