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!

    Love this dress! They have a traditional coloured one in Primark and I think of Ginger Spice every time I see it!
    I love how patriotic & friendly everyone is at the moment, the olympic torch went through my town last week and it was so lovely to see the atmosphere x

    That dress is amazing for the jubilee theme. I really like that it isn't in the normal union jack colour keeps it so fresh and unexpected.

    This is such a cool dress, you look amazing! I'm really excited about the Jubilee too, it's amazing that the whole country is coming together, and like you said, it's good to forget everything we're all having to go through at the moment, even if just for a few days!

    Hurray for the long (much needed) weekend! Hope you have a good one.
    You look great in your dress! While tanned legs are nice I think pale legs look just as good if not better sometimes. Though I must say, tanned legs makes skinny looking legs haha.

    This dress looks gorgeous on you, and of course you don't feel self concious, look at you! I look like a beached whale in body con at the moment, really really not a good sight! Its a great style though and definitely needs to be worn for the jubilee!

    I'm loving it all too, even though I have to work all weekend and Tuesday and need to fill the gaps with revision, its nice that this year is a 'big one' for Britain, and everyone has something in common to celebrate – I'm joining in just for the sake of it haha

    You are rocking this dress, we need to re name it from 'Zoe' to SARAH!! I think peeps are celebrating because they have time off haha I think it's true, it's nice to keep it and look back on when it was all happening. Xx

    You look hot! That dress is very different for you, but you styled it in a way that stays true to your taste in fashion. I love the unexpected colors in the Union Jack print. It's such a fun look!

    May the force be with you.
