Union Jack Dress Motel Rocks* / Sunglasses RayBan / Jewellery T:S
I don't often wear printed bodycon in the daytime and definitely not for casual wear. I'm ok with wearing plain coloured body con dresses, I don't feel as self conscious as they are more versatile and you can smarten it up with a blazer and a pair of ballet pumps, but this new bodycon which has arrived Motel is so in keeping with the current patriotic theme that I think I can get away with it on a hot summer's day for a spot of Jubilee fashion? Maybe?! It will be nice to keep this forever and think back as to what it means. Like a piece of fashion souvenir to commemorate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee! Motel is well known for their wide range of dresses and their Zoe bodycon dress is available in lots of other prints and this Union Jack one is their latest addition. It's also available in a pastel colour way but I love how they have mixed the colours up a little bit so it's not as obvious, this bright Union Jack is pretty awesome! I feel like Ginger Spice in my new dress! (I really miss the Spice Girls!)
I was going to do a big Jubilee themed post but I'm going to split them in to two parts because I don't like each post to be too image-heavy! This one is the outfit post and there will be another next week. It's so lovely to see everyone so patriotic and united, it's really uplifting and makes me forget some of the bad (mainly, economic) things that we're all experiencing and hearing about on a daily basis! You really get the sense that everyone is really exciting for happy celebrations and extra days off, and it does give everyone that much needed boost! Anyway, back to the dress, I did initially try the dress on without tights but I am still feeling insecure about how pale my legs are! Need fake tan asap!
