Yes, I just recently featured this dress in an outfit post, but I always like to see how my favourite bloggers style up a dress in different ways, to get ideas for extending an existing wardrobe. After all, it's all very well to look fabulous in a new outfit every day if you have a vast wardrobe of amazing vintage clothes, but most of us don't have an infinite wardrobe (or the means to get one).
So, the same dress, another way: the addition of boots and knitted jacket reflects the increasingly autumnal (though still delightfully mild - I didn't even really need the jacket) weather we're getting now. The straw hat is perhaps a little incongruous for October, but I thought the colours and berry theme worked for autumn - and besides, who wants to be conventional?
Matin and I drove up to Lavant, just outside Chichester, for a late afternoon stroll along a little country lane there. The very last of the blackberries were on the brambles - yum!
Although I love summer, you can't beat the warm light of the late afternoon winter sunshine. Matin's photography skills are definitely improving too - hence the rather image-heavy post (for which I apologise - I sometimes find it annoying when fashion bloggers post a million pictures of the same outfit - but I couldn't decide which ones to cut!).
