THE NAKED DRESS - #OOTN

Dress: Miss Selfridges
Blazer: Primark
Shoes: Zara
Belt: Newlook
Clutch: Bodyshop
Jewellery: Various
Last night I got my glad-rags on and made this country bumpkin a bit glamorous for my Cheerleading awards evening! It was so fab - I never got a ball at school, so I decided to treat this as one... I bought the dress, the shoes, the bag and of course the tan (Courtesy of Fake Bake) - which looks sooo strange as I'm naturally pale - so I think I look a bit too dark, but I'm enjoying looking a lil less see through than I normally do...

You might think the title 'THE NAKED DRESS' is a bit strange - but it's because last night it was referred to as 'that pretty naked looking dress' because of it's nude/pink colour... SJP did say every lady needed a 'naked dress' well this lil pale number can be mine... It's got the perfect tones for summer seasons and compliments any skin tone - whether your fake baked or ghostly - both of which I've been whilst styling this dress!

The dress itself is from Miss.Selfridges - It was such a buy, because there was one size 10 and a million 6's and a 14 Now, I'm no 6 or 14 but I had a feeling from the online size guide a 10 may have been a squeeze - but, lo and behold, it fitted like a glove - it wasn't too tight on the ol' boobies and fitted a perfect floor length, well in a pair of heels, a shorty like me wasn't getting away with it that easy - but it's a good thing I'd just been treated to some new Zara combination heels!

I partnered the outfit with my blazer - which was a bargain from Primark; this made the dress feel a bit more casual as I didn't want to be too dressed up;and put a lil belt on to pinch my waist in a bit more than the dress gave... I finished the outfit off with some essential statement pieces I'd picked up from Miss. Selfridges, some dreamcast-esk earrings and a triangle pattern statement necklace.... They topped it with a lil up do I'm loving styling at the mo- as it's keeping my hair off my neck in this horrid/lovely sun... Plus I wouldn't be anywhere on a night out without a fabulous lil clutch - so I opted for gold to match my jewellery and shoes...

I love this dress for my body shape at the moment - as it was recommended by a bodyshape stylist - so I'll definitely be trying to rock it for a wedding or two I've been invited to over summer - well I might as well get a few uses!

So this was what I wore to look fancy, girly, pretty and a wee bit glamorous - and I truly love this dress and these heels - so please tell me what you think!
Have you got a fancy maxi planned for the summer season?
