I know from Twitter that I wasn’t the only one mourning the cold temperatures yesterday. This was the first of THREE outfits I had on trying to stay warm whilst not looking like I was dressed for Autumn. I was horribly over-ambitious with this one but it’s still August, which means Summer…right? Clearly not. I am bitterly disappointed with the frankly shit weather we have had this year. Anyone want to emigrate with me?

(Matalan dress, Pretty Polly tights, Yull shoes).

Back at work today after an extra long weekend, a three day week almost makes up for everything else.

How are you dressing right now? Is it time to admit defeat with Summer clothes? I’ve not even had chance to wear some of my purchases!


P.S. Giveaway open until Sunday!

  1. I really love this dress with these tights. You have such an amazing tights collection!

  2. I actually got my winter coat out yesterday. Tights are a good reason to be positive about the cooler weather. I could definitely emigrate with you though as I love the sunshine.

  3. Those tights are excellent! πŸ™‚
    I’m definitely getting my snuggly jumpers out this weekend!
    I’m quite looking forward to winter though! I’m a sucker for Christmas! πŸ™‚

  4. Come to Australia its been perfect here the last 2 days and we even had a afternoon storm yesterday cause it was so hot.

  5. This is a pretty outfit, you still look summery πŸ™‚

  6. Gorgeous outfit!I’ve admitted defeat – out come the scarves and tights – I love a/w dressing though! A million times easier than the flesh baring summer months πŸ™‚ xxx

  7. I adore that dress and tights.
    And yep, I’m doing a mixture of summer/autumn dressing at the mo…! :p

  8. I love a nice floral dress with heels! Yeah the weather has been awful, I’ve given up trying to change it by dressing summery when the weather is clearly october-like. Time to wear our autumn purchases I guess! xxx

    The long weekend was cold in London, I had a coat for this first time this year!

    Ilove the colours in this look! πŸ˜€

  10. I love your shoes!
    I’ve given up Summer as a bad job, spent yesterday wearing a big jumper over my dress and WOOLLY TIGHTS. So far today I’m wearing a hoodie over my PJs, and my duvet… I’m definitely up for emigration!


  11. I’d emigrate for sure!
    Yesterday was so cold I had to sit on my hands to stop me flicking the central heating on! Bloody rediculous weather. I think Ive given up on summer and my chunky boots and tights are creeping back in. Though I need to stock up on cardis…

  12. Cute!! those tights go perfectly with your dress xx

  13. Shame we haven’t had much of a summer but I do love your dress xoxo

  14. Lovely outfit – really like your tights! I know the weather is awful, I hate the start of winter x

    Its been really cold in the morning here too, but then it gets super hot in the afternoon. So I have no idea what to wear! Err..

    You look adorable trying to keep warm and I love those shoes! πŸ™‚


  16. I’ve given up on summer completely and am wearing a scarf at my desk at work. Rubbish! I’ve also been browsing online looking for some winter slippers. What a granny!


  17. I’ll come too!! Somewhere warm and hot please, with lots of cocktails preferably β™₯ Claire @ Jazzpad

  18. Cute dress! Normally i love autumn but i miss the sun already πŸ™

  19. You really, really suit blue.
    I’m blinking freezing.

  20. It’s this inbetweeny state that I don’t like, when it comes to full on autumn and winter and you can wear woolly hats and gorgeous coats and chunky cardigans – this is when I get excited!

    P.s. Thanks for entering my giveaway πŸ™‚ good luck


  21. Great outfit! This sort of weather can be so annoying, never sure what to wear as don’t want to be too hot/cold! x

  22. I love those shoes with that dress xxx

  23. I will happily emigrate with you Laura! I have to agree, the weather has been shit this year. Here’s hoping next year’s summer will be better, and you look gorgeous in that dress πŸ™‚ xxx

  24. Oh I’ve totally given up. Today I wore tights, a maxi skirt and a big woolly jumper. I’ll blog it at some point – I was warm and it was lovely!

  25. i went for jeans and a jumper, the jumper was only just warm enough though.
    Love how your dress, tights and shoes all work so well together x

  26. I don’t know whether I am coming or going when I get dressed in the morning at the moment! I’m wearing a wool poncho today and the sun is beaming!
    That is such a pretty outfit, you look fab.
    Such a shame you’re not getting to wear new purchases – I have to, as soon as I walk in the door, they’re out of the bag and on… for a while at least.

  27. This week I’ve been really lucky! It was gorgeously warm in Hay on Wye (Wales, where we went on holiday)for 3 of the days so I’ve worn summer stuff. Sometimes, I have just grinned and borne it and worn summer stuff with tights and cardies.
    We drove past Bristol on our way there and it made me think of you!
