All black (with lace, pleats and neon)
So this is a major departure for me, considering I am scared to death of wearing black - in the daytime at least. But my sister passed on this (unworn) dress to me, and I thought it was so pretty with the lace panel and pleated front that I had to find a way of styling it. So when Everybody Everywhere for June was neon, it seemed the perfect opportunity to wear it my way - with some of the brightest accessories known to man ;)
I kept all the basics of the outfit - dress, jeans and shoes - black to prevent the silhouette from being broken up. So that left me to add neon in the form of my satchel and yellow scarf, a touch of purple in a reduced necklace from Boots (so cheap!) and my new favourite Models Own nail colour. (I know, I know, I say that about every new nail colour.)
And for those of you who are watching the Euro 2012 football, I am wearing orange in support of Holland... I'm not supporting England this year due to the woefully bad team and lack of any respectable players. Now I'm a big footie fan, but until we have a team I have any respect for, then it's Holland all the way for me...!
Hope you're all well and enjoying a good start to the week :)
