Goodbye Summer

Apologies for my lack of posting over the last week. I have been suffering from severe work overload but I have managed to catch up so here I am again. I have had so many ideas on what I would like to blog about but no time to write the posts. Now I finally sit down to write my mind goes blank and I can't think of any thing so forgive me if I ramble a bit.

I am feeling very disappointed in the amount of wear that I have had from my summer clothing this year. I regret to say that a lovely cream chiffon dress that I invested in from ASOS is still hung in my cupboard perfectly clean with tag still on. On the few occasions that I have been out some where nice and would have had the perfect opportunity opportunity to wear the dress, I haven't been brave enough to wear it as I thought I might freeze. Yes it has officially been a rubbish summer weather wise and I have had to resort to finding new ways of wearing my summer dresses or they would be doomed to stay in my cupboard and never see the light of day until next summer (assuming we get some nice weather then)

One of the best options is to wear leggings of trousers under the dress. Next seasons tapered trousers are a great idea if the skirt is flared or full as the fitted shape will balance out the fullness of the skirt. I think this is a great way to combine the practicality of trousers with whimsical element of a summer dress and also to eek out a bit more wear from those under worn summer floral dresses.

I might try out these leopard skin print leggings with one of my floral dresses for a bit of a mish mash look.

The leopard leggings with floral dress sounds like a great combination. I saw it in the window at Forever 21 and have been wanting to try it.
