So hello and welcome to my first outfit post of 2016, which sees me return to a style of dress I had once loved but stopped wearing, of course I am talking about the swing dress.
The swing dress first burst onto the scene back in 2013 and I instantly fell in love and at one time I owned about five as I just loved them so much. I don't know what happened but I suddenly stopped wearing them but I spotted a stripy one from JD Williams something made me want to re-visit the swing dress.
Please excuse my rather pasty complexion in these photos as when I took them I had just started to recover from the flu and a gastric upset and it was the first time I felt human enough to stand in front of a camera!!
Yes this dress is really simple but I like it for that reason as I can pop it on and go. I teamed it with my trusty New Balance trainers which are like slippers for a more dressed down look but I would also be happy to wear it to work with smart shoes. I am always drawn to clothes with stripes on and if you want to tell me that stripes aren't 'flattering' (hate that word!!) or shouldn't be worn by fat women then please do one!
It seems that 2016 could be the year that I re-ignite my love of swing dresses!!
