23.03 Lace

Just a quick outfit post today whilst I have the chance. There isn’t any real reason why having my Dad home affects my posting other than it is a lot more difficult to get photos when someone who doesn’t really “get” it is around in the house! Anyway, he is out at a meeting today so I took the oppurtunity.

This dress is a couple of years old now and I think I’ve worn it all of twice. I didn’t buy it with the intention of it being day wear, but it deserves to be worn so I’m rocking it regardless.

The indoor photos aren’t the greatest, tempermental camera this morning. I got Mum to snap the garden one as it shows the colour contrast on the dress a bit better.




I’m off for a morning out with Mum shortly, followed by a course work filled afternoon…I’m almost half way through now and this week is my final push to get the first module submitted (gotta love self imposed deadlines eh?)

I also intend to do some baking this week; cheese scones and a cake of some kind though I am yet to decide what flavour.

What have you been up to?

    Besitos fashionistas!!!!

  21. Woman, I would love to rummage through your wardrobe. I love it all! And this combo of boots, tights and that gorge dress is just killller.

    p.s. I have to make a cake too…not want to, have to. Decisions, decisions….what to make.

    Have fun baking!

  22. thank u for ur comments darling! the dress is lovely u look pretty as usual.x

  23. LOVED the dress.You have a really unique sense of fashion you know. πŸ™‚
    I don’t know, I’ll go to Germany but for these days I have to prepare for my b-friend’s party!

  24. I love how you pull off boots so well.

  25. I still LOVE those boots and the dress is so cute, you should wear it more often x

  26. Beautiful dress, Daisy. I’m loving your boots too.

  27. I think the dress works really well as daywear. Love the garden shot you should do it more often! xx

  28. That dress is really pretty – definitely deserves to be worn a bit more often!

    I get what you mean about it being harder to take photos when your Dad’s around – no one in my house knows about my blog (or probably even what one is!), so they’d be rather confused catching me taking photos of my bag, for example!


  29. I totally understand how tough it is to get it going with someone who doesn’t quite understand what on earth you are doing and for what.

    By the way, that’s a lovely dress. Can’t believe its a couple years old.

  30. Hello hello!
    What an adorable dress! Love it with those boots, you’re very cute in that outfit! And your garden in wonderful
    Hmm, I’m gonna listen to your rule and self impose some deadlines.Time is running and i have almost no work done, beeing ill so many times lately* Good luck for your work and i’m curioys about the baking you’re gonna do!

  31. Very pretty dress Laura. And nom nom to cheese scones. x

  32. Oh so pretty!
    Well since you asked, I have been exercising and trying different diets lately to get stinkin’ thin again. Hah. πŸ™‚
    Your figure reminds me of Audrey Hepburn (the figure I’ve always wished to have…..) Lucky girl!
    Much love & xoxo,

  33. That dress is really nice, pairing it with boots makes it look nice and casual for daytime. And I like the change of scenery – you should do more outside shots if you get the chance!

  34. ah outside picture! i love it!
    and i love your outfit!!
    too cute!

  35. college&again college:)
    I really like the dress and the outdoor photo,you should do more:)

  36. I adore that dress, its so nice and goes really well with the boots!

  37. Pretty! I love your boots!

  38. Ha! (to your comment) I’d so wreck that. Maybe it’s me but I found that hilarious.

    You know it’s funny: I have trouble posting when my husband is around. Even commenting… like now, he’s asking questions. It’s just hard to get into the Zone.

    Love that look: love lace and dresses with black riding type boots! I have these black plain riding boots that I wear all the time, love them with dresses.

    So glad it’s finally getting milder.. for fashion and all other reasons. I love spring!! xox

  39. Lovely, as usual.

  40. Thanks so much for your compliment…you’re so very sweet!

    The dress is lovely and even though the outfit is all black, it looks so light and airy! I love the boots…where’d you get them?

    Cheese scones?!!? That sounds amazing. I’ve never had one. I also need to try these hobknob creations….

  41. I love that dress. It is gorgeous! Great pics!

  42. what a darling lace dress. adorable on you.

  43. The lace dress is pretty and I like the boots too. Your baking plans sound scrumptious. Don’t you just love spring? It’s my favorite season, but it’s raining at the moment and I’ve probably been blogging too much and neglecting my chores. Enjoyed seeing your pics.

  44. ooooolala! I love those boots, and cool dress, I can’t believe you have only worn it twice. lol!


  45. Thanks for the comment – pretty isn’t it!? They also have it in cream & a blush pink, which are lovely – for only Β£7 you can’t go wrong!


  46. gorgeous! the second pic shows the dress detail nicely. love it! i also like the outdoor pic. i wish i had a backyard!


  47. im so in love with lace right now.. its the perfect amount of risqueness πŸ™‚

  48. The dress definitely works as daywear. Supremely pretty!

    Is it bad that after looking at your garden photo my eyes then auto-gravitated to the stone Buddha in the background? πŸ™‚

  49. Loved the outside pic!!!

  50. The dress certainly does ROCK!!!
    Hope your coursework is going well!

  51. cute dress! Had yesterday off looked at a wedding venue πŸ˜› back to work today. x

  52. The lace dress looks great. The detailing at the front looks really good.

  53. The dress is loveely, the pattern keeps it interesting. You should do more outdoor shots πŸ™‚

  54. i know what you mean .. none of my parents could really get what i do with my blog . so they dont really pay attention to my pics and then they mess them up and then its pointless.

    that said .. i really like this dress. i like the dress details and the pretty big buttons ..
    is it vintage ?

  55. Jen

    What lovely lace for this fine spring day! Can’t wait to see your scones.

  56. Thanks hun and I love the backyard here. So green πŸ™‚

  57. I love the dress!
    reading about your self-imposed deadline reminds me that I have a few projects I need to finish myself. I procrastinate too much!

  58. Love the dress and love the boots. No worries if dad doesn’t ‘get it’. If he ever questions it, you could always quip up a clever response about at least keeping your clothes on for internet uploads. ha ha ha. Seriously, in my quest for fun fashion photos I actually had to change my computer settings to safe mode because even the most innocent of words would pull up a whole slew of naked horror during my searches πŸ™‚

  59. Gorgeous dress. Dad’s can be out of the loop somewhat! Please bake a Victoria Sponge and I will come and have tea with you x

  60. Nice dress! Good luck with the deadline Laura, I know all too well what’s that like. Looking good as always. xxx

  61. thanks honey ;O) i love your dress!!!!!Kissssss

    Thanks for the comment!! xox

  63. i know what you mean – i can’t get in my bloggy mode if others are around! lol .. you look fabulous! i love a good black dress with nice detailing!

  64. I love any type of lace and this includes your lovely dress! I understand about it being weird taking pictures around people who don’t get it. I normally take pictures when no one else is home or my mom will occasionally take them for me when we’re out.


  65. I love those boots!!! You look so cute. Nice to have a photographer =).

  66. i love that dress!

  76. omg i am dying for a lace dress! so jealous

  77. Such a pretty dress, Laura.


  78. such a pretty lace dress! You should get a tripod and take photos outside, thats what I do to avoid prying parental eyes (also the lighting in my house REALLY pisses me off)

  79. Such a cute dress! And I like it with those boots

  80. Lovely dress, love the lace!
