Let's face it! Getting back in the swing of things takes some time... but for me - I'm all about trying to stay positive and feeling great. SO. When Evans contacted me recently about being part of a five-take style blogger challenge - I said YES straight away...
The chosen dress, for FIVE of us bloggers to try?
Skater dresses are absolutely popular (design wise) right now, and I had never tried one. On top of that - add a snakeskin print (I rarely do leopard, let alone REPTILE!!) and I couldn't resist. I have said so many times on this blog - that sometimes, getting outside our comfort zones is so important as far as learning about and defining our own fashion. I mentioned in the last post - that life has been a bit rough lately... Well, what better way to get back into blogging than to branch out and try something a little different.
For me, due to the sleeves - this would be a really lovely autumnal dress. I overheat in summer and need a lighter sleeve - so staying true to that, I paired this with Evans leggings, Evans flats and a Carmakoma belt. I DID try it with a waist cincher belt too, but that was a little TOO Betty Boop (especially with the new hair!)
I like this look. If I'm honest? I didn't know if I would. I thought the print wouldn't suit me, at all - but it did! I also like the style and cut. I'm not sure why I've stayed away from the skater style - but certainly, I'm eyeing up the Evans Swan Print and City Chic Ice Skater dresses, next!
On the Evans Facebook page, they have popped a few other girls in an album - with all of us wearing the same dress. We are different shapes and have different takes on how to wear this one - so get over there! It's worth a look! xxx.
