Happy Long Weekend....





Good morning and a happy Friday to everyone!

Last summer I was far from ready for that gorgeous spell of hot weather we got so I decided I would be more organized this year and have a few easy day dresses on hand for warm sunny mornings.

 They just make it so much easier to get dressed when you are in a rush sometimes and are so easy and versatile to style. I am also a little too fond of my jeans which can become boring at times.


When I saw the Mango 30% off offer last Saturday, I looked at the dress section first and straight away
  the paisley print and shape of this one caught my eye.



It arrived during the week and I adore it on.It is a very casual style and has a lovely silky
 loose feel to it.



Dress/Mango  Navy leather bag/c/o Gray&Osbourn  Shoeboots/Dunnes

I will style it a few different ways later on when it gets a tad warmer and the real strappy sandals can come out. 
I think tan or metallics will also work with the colours and it would be lovely finished with a casual straw/raffia tote bag for a shopping trip:)

On a cooler day, a longline cotton boyfriend style cardigan would be great to throw on over it.

Hope you all have a lovely  weekend:) 

It is a bank holiday over here so I am looking forward to the four days relaxing again!
 The sun has disappeared for the moment so I'm hoping it comes back.The old legs could do with another bit of colour!!

Take Care
Anne xx

  10. Great dress, Anne, I really like Mango and shop there quite often. That style does look good with a cardigan on a cooler day, I agree.
    Enjoy your long weekend!

  11. It is a marvellous dress Anne. I love how you styled it with the long necklace and the boot-like sandals. Mango sometimes has very nice print dresses.

    1. The shoes are grand for now with it but will get lighter sandals for summer Lorena....they would be a bit heavy in the heat except when it rains, which could be possible over here in high summer !

I also loved the floral pants and how you styled them with the black shoes.Well, you already have so many cute Spring pieces! Love them. You have inspired me to look for something similar to both! xx Kim
