I shared a sneaky peek of this rather fabulous green ruffle midi dress in my previous post, (in which I talked about the brilliant new styles in the Stressless by Lotus range of footwear). This dress deserves its own blog post because I know already that it will be a versatile favourite. I love it with the biker boots in these photographs. But a heeled ankle boot would look super too. As would knee boots. Or trainers. Or heels. A velvet blazer would dress it up beautifully and a denim jacket would dress it down. And I think it would be just as suited as a spring green as it is a winter green.
This green ruffle midi dress with it’s fabulous mix of animal print will work hard and earn its keep in places other than my garden. Speaking of which, while we’re in lockdown it would be wrong to find a location in which to shoot my style posts. I love my garden but it’s difficult to get a full-length photo without plants, pots, fences or the shed getting in the shot, so I apologise for the cluttered images. I’d like to say that it’s keeping it real, but I have to be honest and say that this is another occasion when I’m playing dress-up. In reality I’m wearing jeans and a sweatshirt and trying to keep warm because my boiler isn’t working. At least now we know that under the latest government guidelines we can have some family catch-ups over Christmas and that I will be able to wear all of my lovely dresses for real.
