Blue Embroidery

*bag & boots gifted

Good Morning,

It’s Monday again and the weekend passed in the blink of an eye. I know I’m fortunate to still be working and kept busy during the week and I like to make sure the weekend feels different to weekdays. I enjoy my walks while listening to music and getting some much needed fresh air along with cooking and baking some treats to get me through the week. I do my usual cleaning routine although I’ve added in some deep cleaning elements here and there. It’s a way of breaking up the time and trying to maintain a sense of normality although I fully appreciate that life will not be normal for the foreseeable future, even when lockdown is lifted.

One thing I normally do around this time of year is sort out my wardrobe, switching out winter coats and chunky knits for lighter jackets and Spring pieces. I’ve not felt motivated enough to make a start on it and I guess there is no pressure as I’m not likely to be needing many of my Spring clothes just yet. It’s a task I’ll save for when boredom strikes and I’ve run out of other things to do.

Although I haven’t yet switched out my winter pieces, I’ve added in some new Spring things including this beautiful blue embroidered dress from Zara which arrived before lockdown commenced. I couldn’t resist when I spotted it on the website, partly due to the colour and my current obsession with blue but the design also drew me in. I’m a huge fan of lace, embroidery and broderie anglaise and the laser cut detail of this dress is simply stunning. I also love the uneven finish, it’s different to any other dresses I own.

To contrast with the femininity of the dress, I’ve paired with boots and a snake print bag. The bag works really well as it has hints of blue through the snake print detail and the chunky cross body strap contrasts with the frills and layered detail of the dress.

The good news for you but sad news for me is that the dress is now in the ‘special prices’ section of Zara so instead of £49.99 you can get it for £19.99.
