OOTD35: Embroidery and Print

I am back with another outfit for spring but let’s face it – even though the sun is shining, it’s still way too cold to be wearing only that here in London. All the cheerful florals still need to be buried deep under a coat but oh well, I am quite used to freezing for a bit so that I could take some nice pictures 😀

Here I am wearing a sheer embroidered top from Zara which itself is lovely but a nightmare figuring out what to put underneath. I feel this way about the whole sheer fabrics’ trend because it looks nice but whatever you put or don’t put underneath kind of ruins it. Anyway, I decided to use a simple white body I got years ago from ASOS and whereas I don’t mind it too much if I don’t concentrate on it, I still don’t like the look of the very basic piece underneath an almost designer looking top.

The white body was the best choice I could think of for this outfit so here it is. I paired the embroidered top with a colourful camo print skirt and I’m very happy with the result as it makes me hopeful of warmer days and overall positive about the summer that’s coming up.

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 😀
