Outfit August - day 17 and a denim dilemma

Hi everyone

Well, I have a bit of a dilemma today. Have you bought something that you weren't sure about but kept perservering until you found a way to make it work for you?

Well this dress is one of those dilemmas! I want to love it so much as I've wanted a longer denim dress for - well ages! It's comfy, it doesn't ride up or crease too much or do anything it shouldn't, but I'm still not sure about it. It's from TU at Sainsburys and I find their sizes quite difficult to get my head around. But as I had some vouchers burning a hole in my pocket, I didn't feel too bad at taking a gamble on it. I don't think it's in stock anymore, but you may find an odd one still in stock.

I've been trying to wear it different ways until I have that lightbulb moment. Today it's with a lace navy top from Marks and Spencer that is quite sheer. I added a belt from when I was last in the States (I think it's from Walmart or somewhere like that).

I'm thinking that maybe a long sleeved shirt, boots and a jumper/cardie may be a better option - what do you think? I'm also thinking a few extra darts wouldn't go amiss as I'm smaller on top than the bottom and it may make it more fitted.

Whatever happens - be prepared for the denim dress saga! :-)

The shoes are my current favourites from Primark. They are sooooo comfy I've been wearing them to death at the moment. Primark is fast becoming my favourite place for shoes.

Don't forget to have a look to see what everyone else is up to. I hope to be a bit more on top of things next week. This last week has been a bit of a weird one!


Thanks for reading




  1. I think it's look great with a bright coloured cardi over the top, but a fitted one, not a baggy one, or else it'll drown you. x x

  2. Thank you! That's a great idea and I have some that I think would work well! xx
