Dress: Nina Kay
Belt: City Chic
I wasn’t sure I would like this dress belted. It’s got such an elegant princess line that I didn’t want to mess it up, but last time I wore it a reader, Francesca, suggest I try it with a red sash or belt. Today for a bit of whimsy I thought I’d pair it with my new heart belt from City Chic, and I think it works splendidly.
I was sorting out my wardrobe earlier this week and discovered that I’ve got rather a frightening number of these long-sleeved striped tops. I think it all comes back to a few years ago when I spent months trying fruitlessly to track one down. Now, squirrel-like, I seem to be hoarding them in the event of another striped-top famine. Of course, with the nautical trend in full flight right now they’re everywhere, but you never know what will be on-trend next season, so I’m buying up while I can (I’m rationalising buying another earlier today… but the stripes are wider, so I’m not duplicating. Right? Right?)
