OOTD32: Eyelets and Fringe

It’s been a while since I last posted anything, I guess I just decided to take some proper time off this Easter, you know with loads of eating and just unapologetically relaxing.

I am probably kind of late with the whole eyelet trend but I found this jumper in New Look and thought it was nice. For me eyelets can make it or break it and quite often ends up looking cheap however sometimes it looks really good.

I’m not too happy with myself doing such a dark look when the weather’s supposed to be getting better and generally more optimistic but oh well, I think the jumper goes with black the best so here it is. I hope the blue belt adds some spring vibes 😀

Also I’ve almost finished doing ‘the best of the eyelet trend’ style edit so the next blog post will be me showing the nicest items I’ve found online!

Easter Dresses Edit

I sometimes get curious about what’s out there for those looking for an outfit for an occasion. In this case I am talking about the Easter that’s coming up. I have to admit that after checking out the available stuff online I worry about the busy and the careless girls who leave it all to the last minute to find a perfect dress or an outfit. It could do with something I could even call a bit of a trauma I had a few years ago just before my convocation.

I was doing some travelling after finishing university but I made sure I came back for the graduation however I didn’t have a lot of time to find a dress. I have to say my mind was elsewhere because I was having a good time travelling so worrying about some dress wasn’t even on my mind. And then it was a bit too late to get something that was just right for it so I ended up wearing a dress that I already had (which was a lovely dress by the way) but I wanted something new and special for it.

So believe me when I say that it actually makes me worried about not being able to find something perfect for some special day or an event 🙂

I went online to check out the dresses that some of the brands that I normally would shop with had. The winners of my research were Zara and Mango offering a range of dresses from simple dressy type to gowns. My criteria was something light and plain coloured however floral prints would be acceptable also. I was also looking for some ruffles or pleats as well as slightly oversized silhouettes. The length preference that I has was maxi or midi dresses however I could only find a few of those that made it to my list. I am sure I would have found some nice dresses on ASOS however I wasn’t quite up for looking through 5538 items 😀
