This is what I wore yesterday for a day with my family, eating too much food and spending a lot of time asleep afterwards! I love having Sunday’s off work. I went a long time working them and missed out on so many days with my family and oh so many Sunday lunches! I wore a dress I received from Zalando along with some nail polish they sent me also. I chose the dress because it isn’t something I would normally go for, so I wanted to see how I could make it work with my own style. The print isn’t something I can normally wear, being so fair skinned, but I think it works with this little blouse. I also tried it on with a couple of cardigans I had that looked quite nice too. I think a blazer would work best but I didn’t want to dress formally! Maybe something to consider for a job interview!
The dress is a little longer than it shows on the pictures, but I decided to gather it up a little at the hips. It’s more fitted at the bottom so it can be worn slouchy or straight. It looks better worn straight down, but with leggings and my short little legs it didn’t look quite right. It would be nice on a night out with some tan on my pasty skin and some bigger heels to show it off properly. I couldn’t decide between a few dresses. but I’m glad I went for this one as it pushes me out of my comfort zone a little and allows me to experiment.
The nail polish is also from Zalando (thank you!) and I love it! It’s by a brand called ‘Pieces’ that I had never heard of before so I was a little dubious when I chose it, but I’m really impressed. The formula and pigmentation is similar to that of Barry M. The only thing I would say is that this was described as ‘Peach’ on the bottle, but it’s definitely more of a baby pink. There are loads of colours of this nail polish to chose from and they only cost £3 a bottle!
Have you ever tried something different to push you out of your comfort zone?
