You may have noticed that I set quite a few rules for myself when it comes to clothes; always cool tones, leg covering, lots of navy blue, very little black, I could go on.. I do this because I’m fairly neurotic in general but also because I don’t like to buy clothes that I don’t wear. If I stick to my rules, I’m usually good to go. Since I began this blog and started following other blogs, I’ve decided it’s time to stop being so tough. I came across a new and amazing blog just this week Gabifresh (check it out here) and she in all her fabulousness has inspired me. So this week, we’ve had a yellow skirt and now.. wait for it friends… a short red dress!

Red is not one of my colours, while your standard fire engine red is considered neither warm nor cool, I’ve always felt it’s a colour that overpowers me. This dress however is a great shape for me, really comfortable, not overly floral or cutesy and I think a great addition to my wardrobe (although maybe just 2 inches longer would have been better..!). While today the sun is shining brightly, I can see it working just as well in winter with opaque tights and a black cardigan.
What rules do you have when it comes to fashion?
