Day 197: Plantlife

              • Dress: Wallis
              • Leggings: Dorothy Perkins
              • Cardi: marks and Spencer
              • Pumps: Primark

Now that the 30 for 30 is over I am more free in my outfit choices for work. I have only worn this leaf patterned dress a couple of times but I don't recall ever wearing it to work. It isn't clear from the picture but there is a long tie at the front which I am confused over what to do with. I tied it in a long double bow today as it is so long that if I left it hanging loose it falls way below the hem of the skirt. I also wondered if it should be tied at the back but I don't know how it is then supposed to lie at the front. I am contemplating getting the scissors out and drastically shortening it so it is more practical.

I wore leggings with the dress as didn't want to go bare legged or do tights. I am not sure whether I really like mixing these two as it definitey makes the whole look a lot more casual. Maybe leggings work better with a shorter top layer?

  1. Is it possible that the long tie is meant to be a belt? I really like the pattern in this dress.
