• Overdressed in Ted Baker

    Feminine dresses and symmetry have become a staple in my wardrobe.  I love dresses overly feminine, often labeled too girly. I on my part like to call my dress code real time romance, that’s how wonderful it feels wearing skater, vibrant tinted dresses. No matter how many curious looks I attract on my way, I will not  be defeated, wearing all of my dresses the upcoming season has been a priority. Isn’t it a shame that we spend quite a significant amount of our income in ‘good clothes’ but we choose not to wear them very often?!

    Either the material or the color feels restricting, perhaps we do not want to be labeled as attention seekers. Never has it happened that I personally would judge a person of beeing dressed impecably and I am sure neither have you. Dress youself up, each single day and it will change your life. Feeling confident in your own skin makes #lifegoals reachable whether you find yourself in a job interview from your the position of your dreams or asking out that person sitting opposite you at your favorite cafe. Often fashion is beeing underestimated and people fashion orientated people are stamped at superficial. Ask youself when was the last time you overdressed? To second that, how did it make you feel? Confident, happier and excited; that’s how I felt while I danced out of our front door on Sunday morning.

    I am wearing

      Oh, gosh! Oh, wow!! You look stunning in that dress, T. Fuchsia is certainly a stand out ‘look at me’ colour. And I just love skater dresses. They are soo pretty and feminine and oooh! And so is this one.
      I tend to overdress (except when I’m gardening), but find that many people do not, and it makes me feel so selfconcious. My Mother brought me up to always look my best, and I’m glad she did.
      I hope your day goes well.
      Hugs, Jo x

        I feel the same Jo but I’ve decided not to care. I love seeing well dressed people, there must exist other people like us out there:)

          What I like about that dress is the way the bodice is fitted to the skirt. Always a sign of a good quality dress.
          I see that you are also loving the Zalando blouse. Isn’t it gorgeous. Those sleeves, that neckline. So you.

            I might buy in aqua marine in sales as Ted Baker has ruined my bank account balance, you’ll see why on my Friday’s post. I am loving the warm weather we enjoy this week in Germany. How is it in UK Jo? Take care, love xx

      Love the dress and color is gorgeous. Also love the fact that you balance it off with the nude shoes. Everything goes so well together. Love it.

      You’re radiant my dear T !
      In my case when going some place I rather be overdressed than under, unless I am with customers, then I will tone down.

        It’s the fuchsia dress Lorena, makes me look paler in contrast:)

      Gorgeous! You’re so right–dressing up makes such a difference. I do hate letting all my fancy clothes go to waste! That background is really pretty as well

      Miles of smiles,

      you look absolutely stunning in that dress. I love how you add neutral color shoe to balance the look. When you look that gorgeous why should we care what other people think.

    13. April 4, 2017 / 5:40 am

      I love the colour of the dress! It’s stunning and really suits you 😀

      I saw the name Ted Baker! I just bought a pair of Ted Baker eyeglasses. A lot of great points you made about feeling confident when you’re dressed fabulously.
