Stepping into Spring...

There is no better feeling than Winter's chill finally disappearing under the sunshine, and as much as i'll miss the layering fun, and bundling up warm aspect of the colder months, I can heartily say that I am ready for ice lollies, headscarves, loose skirts, sandals, ciders in the sun and of course hay fever in my case. The weather has been warmish or at least quite sunny up in the North, and i've been taking advantage of this warm weather by slowly pulling out my midi dresses and skirts. This 'Sinead' Midi dress by Poppy Lux is my favourite at the moment. The length is perfect for this wishy-washy-weather and i can layer it with tights and boots in the colder months, so a win-win dress in my opinion. I've been taking inspiration from Lady Moriarty on how to wear masculine shoes with feminine dresses and I just love Elodie's relaxed Parisian style, everything is so well put together and feels so effortless and natural. So in trying to be a hip grandma, i bought my first ever pair of white trainers to wear during the warmer months a la Elodie. Aside from Midi dresses and trainers, can we please talk about the amazingness that is ownbrown?! ACTUAL AFFORADABLE NUDE TIGHTS FOR WOC SAY WHAT?! Sorry for the Cap's, but i cannot explain to you how excited I am to have my legs out all of the time. I'm wearing the shade 'bintu' and it's more of less exactly the same as my skin tone, but with a warmer glow (aka if my legs had been blessed with some Vitamin D).

I realise I have serious hand-in-hair syndrome y'all. It was super windy and the hair i spent a good hour putting into teeny rollers was blowing all over the gaff haha! Anyway Happy Sunday! (Photos by my very kind and patient hehe friend Domi)

    1. Only finding out about your feedback on the tights, once you checked them out on OWNBROWN.CO.UK, the company which is selling them. At £2.00 of postal delivery, it is the cheaper it can ever get if you are in UK.

    1. Yes the weather has significantly changed since your last message. But these tights are for a different range of purposes; it isn't too late to have your pair, if you haven't already.

  4. I love this! You look stunning and that dress is just so lovely. I love that you're wearing sneakers with it, too - it's a look I love but always feel incredibly uncomfortable wearing, haha. But I approve of it 100%! also, yay for nude tights in your skin color! I hate tights but I support diverse nud...ity? Nudeness? Nude tones in clothing, w/e.

  7. I scrolled down to look at the pictures before coming up again for a read -- those tights are good! I need them. You are looking really great. Personally, I'm terrified of white shoes -- I own an adidas pair and just...sad face.

    1. Ownbrown recently published reviews from a number of women of colour who wore their tights. If you go on its website (at www.ownbrown.co.uk/reviews/), you will find out what they are saying.

  9. I can't remember my trainers ever staying that white - I have them mucky as soon as they come out of the box! I never would have thought to put those shoes with that dress but they work perfectly! x
