Outfit: Dahlia Heart Print Dress

Dress Dahlia / Jewellery Temporary:Secetary / Jacket ASOS / Nail Polish 17 from Boots

A change of scenery today. I’m wearing the Ann-Marie dress from Dahlia, the dress doesn’t actually come with a collar, this is the same white top as I’m wearing in the previous post. My 2nd blog post for Dahlia is now on the website so please pop over to their blog and check it out when you have a spare moment!

    Love the dress!! Congratulations on being nominated for the Marie Claire blogger, you definatley deserve it 🙂 X

    Oh that dress is super cute!! Very clever of you to transform it with the collared top.

    I really need to make more efforts with my outfits. I have lots of nice things I hardly wear. Maybe taking outfit pics again will motivate me to wear them more. I hate saying "new year's resolution" but this is something I can definitely do more of.

    Good luck with the competition!

    Huge congrats on being nominated hun! ^_^ Your dress is gorgeous and I always love how you style your outfits.
    You lucky duck with your £50 amazon voucher too – what are you going to get? I'm waiting patiently for pay day as I have my eye on a few books at the moment. I've been ill and stuck in bed so I've gone a bit book crazy! hehe. xoxo

  7. 12th January 2012 / 1:33 pm

    why was there a negative vibe about the nomination, some people are so stupid. You keep up the good work me dear 🙂

  8. 12th January 2012 / 1:35 pm

    I love your dress, it's so pretty. I love how you've paired it with a leather jacket too, so it's not too girly!
    Congratulations on your nomination, you really deserve it!!
    Charlie, xoxo.

    Love this ensemble! That jacket made your sweet adorable dress look edgy and more chic. Congrats on your nomination 🙂

    another day to wander

  10. 12th January 2012 / 1:41 pm

    I looove this outfit! The dress is adorable and I've bene looking for a jacket like that. It was fun seeing a different backdrop. Sounds like you had a ncie day in Newcastle – I find it hard to get modern art sometimes as well, haha. Also, congrats on getting on the longlist for the MC awards.

  11. 12th January 2012 / 1:55 pm

    That dress with the hearts is adorable, and I'm loving your mustache necklace!!!

  12. 12th January 2012 / 1:55 pm

    I'm much into your jacket and bag … perfect!

  13. 12th January 2012 / 1:57 pm

    The dress is so lovely! One piece print dresses are so in right now! I've seen endless amounts in the stores & I recently purchased one with cats all over it! I've been lazy to blog about it though since I haven't worn it yet… the weather has been way too cold for me to venture out in a dress & tights! Bleh!!!

    Anyway, enough of my rambling… Great post!!! xo

  14. 12th January 2012 / 2:12 pm

    I love the heart print dress, it looks great worn with the top to show the collar 🙂 Congratulations on being shortlisted in the Marie Claire awards! x

  15. 12th January 2012 / 2:25 pm

    beautiful outfit!^^

  25. 12th January 2012 / 4:30 pm

    Gorgeous dress..I have to stop buying dresses with Peter Pan collars though! The best thing about Art galleries is always the gift shop! I hope you get shortlisted for the Marie Claire awards 🙂 x

  26. 12th January 2012 / 4:33 pm

    Aw your dress is gorgeous- love the peter pan collar and the print. Congrats on the Marie Claire short list! Yay! I totally understand the negative reaction to the blog awards but it's a touchy subject isn't it but there are also positives too. Anyways, good luck!!

  27. 12th January 2012 / 5:01 pm

    I keep meaning to visit Newcastle, but life keeps getting in the way. The location looks beautiful so I must make more of an effort! Congratulations on the nomination.

  28. 12th January 2012 / 5:02 pm

    Love this dress! It looks edgy with a moto jacket too! love it

    found the route

  29. 12th January 2012 / 5:10 pm

    I'd love to explore 'Up North' a bit more! I thought your dress had little watermelon slices on it at first 🙂

    Congratulations on the Marie Claire thing! I didn't see any negativity on Twitter about it? That's a real shame. You should be proud of what you've achieved and free to celebrate it as it's an exciting and very positive thing. It's also very well deserved. I'd imagine any negativity was coming from those who weren't nominated.

    Congratulations on the Amazon voucher too! That's fantastic! What are you thinking of buying?


  30. 12th January 2012 / 5:28 pm

    Voted for you 🙂

    The outfit is so lovely, the dashes of red in the dress really suit you. Also very clever with the collar top under the dress, I didn't realise it was a separate garment as it looks so in place.

    I love Newcastle, wish I didn't live so far South somethings :/

  31. 12th January 2012 / 5:35 pm

    You look lovely, and what a great backdrop!

  32. 12th January 2012 / 5:35 pm

    This dress is so cute! I love how perfect your nails are too… I adore the setting – I've never been to Newcastle!

  33. 12th January 2012 / 5:37 pm

    Love the dress, will definitely check out their website!
    I've only been to Newcastle once, would love to visit it again sometime 🙂

  34. 12th January 2012 / 5:43 pm

    Awwww, I love Newcastle so much!! Loving the little washing machine random comment, aren't you a lucky duck for getting the vouchers 🙂 Your first photo looks SO sharp and perfect! xxx

  35. 12th January 2012 / 5:43 pm

    Firstly congratulations on being nominated for the Marie Claire competition! I absolutely love the outfit you're wearing in this post. The 'Love' ring you've made is gorgeous too. xo

  36. 12th January 2012 / 5:48 pm

    I really like the collar with the dress! And the necklace too. Congratulations on being nominated!

  37. 12th January 2012 / 6:09 pm

    Sarah, so excited to read your Dahlia post, they always have such amazing stuff on there site!
    You look lovely (as always don't you!) and HOW cute are you (cringe you'll probably hate me calling you cuteee) that you don't want to talk much about the marie Clare lists.. CONGRATS on getting onto the longlist! You deserve it.xx

  38. 12th January 2012 / 6:12 pm

    Your hair is looking beautiful! Love the leather jacket with the girl dress, gives it a nice edge.
    I've already voted for you in the Marie claire awards so I wish you the best of luck.
    Looking forward to your post on dahlias blog tomorrow!

  39. 12th January 2012 / 6:21 pm

    Sweet outfit, so cute and girly. I love Newcastle Quayside, I only live about an hour away so I like to have a trip there every now and again. Congrats on being nominated x

  40. 12th January 2012 / 6:52 pm

    Your hair is looking really amazing in these photos m'dear x

  41. 12th January 2012 / 7:04 pm

    I've never been to Newcastle, but it sounds worth a trip! I have an old school friend there too… so you never know! My favourite thing about the dress is the navy panels coming in at the waist… a lovely detail!
    & you never know who might need a washing machine! The fairy Hobmother intrigues me, who is she??!? [ps, voted!]

  42. 12th January 2012 / 7:08 pm

    Loving the different location, Newcastle is a city I'd love to visit some time, as I've never been to the North East before.

    Well done also on the Marie Claire List, I know that there's been a mixed view on the the competition, but I reckon it's a great opportunity if that's your area of interest.

    Love to hear what you got with your Amazon voucher, I've to kurb my enthusiasm for Kindle downloads this month, as my paid job is not full time until Feb. But so many good books….

  43. 12th January 2012 / 7:14 pm

    I love the print on your dress sweet! Congratulations for being longlisted, i hope you get on the shortlist – you deserve it!

  44. 12th January 2012 / 7:17 pm

    Dress is to die for. And your looking fab as always. x

  45. 12th January 2012 / 8:46 pm

    I love how you add the top underneath to give the dress a collar, I'm sure it would look super nice without it though – so versatile! I'd love to visit Newcastle properly, I've only been for work in the past and it looks really nice 🙂 x


  46. 12th January 2012 / 8:51 pm

    lovely as ever! xxx

  47. 12th January 2012 / 8:52 pm

    I really want your jacket! It is gorgeous, been looking for one just like it haha 🙂 And definitely a fan of the moustache necklace x

  48. 12th January 2012 / 8:54 pm

    Loving the 'tash necklace! Def. going to vote for your blog in the Marie Claire awards. Negative vibes are just from those who are jealous – or concerned there are other blogs than theirs in the playing field. I was confused about the last bit of the post – who is the fairy hobmother? Off to google her…xx

  49. 12th January 2012 / 8:54 pm

    I loved the views of Newcastle you could get from the top of the Baltic, love love that city. Have so many good memories from being at university for four years there.

  50. 12th January 2012 / 8:54 pm

    Love the way you've put this outfit together, can't wait to read your new Dahlia post!

    You look beautiful as always! Ive voted for you :)fingers crossed for you. I wihs I had the confidence to take pictures outside, but living on campus makes it difficult, I really would look nuts! Newcastle is one of those places I've always wanted to visit, but never have done. I think a visit will be in order this year to check it out. It looks pretty from your pictures, better than Preston anyway! I hope the blogging for Dahlia is going well, so happy to see you representing the UK 😉 xxx

  58. 12th January 2012 / 11:22 pm

    Love this dress, and the Fairy Hobmother sounds like the kind of person I need in my life!

  63. 13th January 2012 / 3:27 pm

    You look gorgeous! I love Newcastle i actually stayed in the Hilton hotel right next to where you were standing in the last photo. It's soo lovely up there


  64. 13th January 2012 / 3:29 pm

    I love Newcastle, I lived in Tynemouth for a few years. Wanted to go back and very nearly went to Northumbria Uni I didnt go in the end but everything turned out great anyway!

  65. 13th January 2012 / 3:37 pm

    Thanks for the comment back hun! I go up Newcastle quite alot nowadays most of my family live up there and i used to live there when i was a baby (not that i remembered it much) lol!
    I was actually going to get an appartment in the Quayside last year right by the hilton! The apartments there look amazing!!


  66. 13th January 2012 / 4:17 pm

    I really want to visit the BALTIC, it is on my must go to list for 2012. xxx

  68. 13th January 2012 / 9:57 pm

    You always looks so effortless chic 🙂 I've been looking through all your old posts with such awe! I love Newcastle I found it to be such a friendly yet lively place x

  69. 14th January 2012 / 5:08 am

    Hello Fairy Hobmother! What will you buy with your voucher? I loooove that dress, I envy you being able to keep the collar neat with another jacket over the top! I suppose the whole sleeveless thing makes it a bit easier. I had a job interview today and wanted to wear a pan collared blouse with a jacket over the top but had to change outfits because the stupid collar on the blouse wouldn't stay put. Aaaaahhhh the woes of my life. That turned into a long comment. Anyway you look beautiful as always 🙂

  70. 14th January 2012 / 2:43 pm

    I love Gateshead – the Sage and the Millenium Bridge is my favourite! Very cute dress! I'm obsessed with Peter Pan collars on dresses right now!

  71. 14th January 2012 / 3:58 pm

    Love the dress on you! I have never been to Newcastle, but it's definitely on my list of 'to go' places in the UK!

  72. 14th January 2012 / 9:05 pm

    Oo I like these pictures, sometimes it's good to step out of your comfort zone 🙂 Love the dress it's really pretty 🙂 Congrats on being nominated too lovely 🙂

    I really love the Baltic, but I actually love modern art! So excited to live in Newcastle with the boyfriend soon 🙂 we'll definitely have to meet up with a group of bloggers… Congrats on the Marie Claire nomination.

  75. 15th January 2012 / 1:35 pm

    That dress is gorgeous, I love the heart print. Your jacket looks lovely too, I've been looking out for a leather jacket for ages but I haven't found any that I really like/suit me yet!
    Congrats on being nominated for the blog awards, good luck!

  76. 16th January 2012 / 4:42 pm

    I've always wanted to go to Newcastle, especially to the Baltic! The closest I got was south shields to watch the end of the great north run haha. I love the moustache necklace, it's so cute. I love the idea of the fairy hobmother, I would love some vouchers to cheer myself up during January, I really want to buy some new cookbooks that aren't full of cakes but proper meals now that I've moved out haha.

  77. 18th January 2012 / 6:13 pm

    This is a gorgeous dress – the red is really brought out by your nail varnish xx

  78. 19th January 2012 / 7:59 pm

    Newcastle seems like a pretty place to visit !! I've always wanted to get out of London for a day or two but never really got to do it =)

    Your hair looks amazing !!
