It is such a wonderful feeling waking up on a weekend and opening the curtains to a bright, sunny day. My first thought as I leapt out of bed this morning was that it is now the perfect weather to start doing outfit posts again. Any blogger or photography enthusiast will know that gloomy weather can make life difficult when it comes to taking the perfect shot, similarly too much sun can also be a problem. The weather today was absolutely perfect - enough light to compliment my beautiful floral dress and enough heat to ensure my legs didn't freeze whilst taking this photograph.
This dress is one of my many recent purchases from Forever 21, a shop I have been raving about for the last few weeks on Twitter. It was only recently that I discovered Forever 21. Unfortunately there's no Forever 21 stores near me and I'm often put off by ordering clothes online due to sizing difficulties. When I was in Liverpool a few weeks back I took the opportunity to call in their Forever 21 store at Liverpool One and since then, I have not stopped talking about them.
I plan on teaming this dress up with my new Dulice Meg shoes from Clarks. To be quite honest, before last Saturday I hadn't been in a Clarks shoe shop since I was about five years old. I had always associated the brand with school shoes and footwear that my mum would buy, but I when I had a look round the other week after seeing a pair of shoes in the window that I liked, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of shoes I actually wanted to buy and left the store with two new pairs. These Dulcie Meg shoes have a smooth black finish with snake effect leather ankle straps. They have a block heel of around 8cm giving them an easy to wear feel and the cushioning on the inside gives support to people like me with foot problems.
Have you shopped in Clarks or Forever 21 recently?
