What do you wear... *Guest Post*

You may very well remember Amy Elizabeth from her Tea & Bakes post back in August last year, but here we have her with a marvellous What do you wear (where we ask you how you like to wear your tea dresses throughout the seasons) guest post....

Short vintage dress, knee highs and cotton cardigan

I
have a confession to make... I don't wear dresses nearly half as much as I used to. When I worked in a vintage boutique, it came with the territory; dressing up every day, channeling a 50's housewife, or a lady of the 40's stepping out for tea.

Vintage collared dress, oversized fair isle jumper and suede flats


As well as owning a pretty hefty collection of dresses, I also had A LOT more free time on my hands to make the effort. Fast-forward through graduation, a move to London, and a couple of jobs, my life these days revolves around '40 hour weeks' not '40's styling'.

Forget-me-not dress, black cardigan, grey wool tights and suede flats

Having recently purchased some beautiful seasonal knitwear and the obligatory new winter socks, I decided it was time to start rocking the dress again. The ability to layer is key if you don't want to store your dresses away for winter, and it doesn't have to be difficult!

Tri-blend day dress, knitted cardigan, sheer black tights and dr martens

Experiment with sheet tights, thick tights, knitted socks, knee high socks, leggings, wool cardigans (I LOVE cardigans) Christmas jumpers, blazers, leather jackets, overcoats - the list is endless. Mix and match items you already have in your wardrobe and you might be pleasantly surprised at how many outfits you can style around a dress.

Here are a couple of examples to hopefully inspire you.

Thanks ever so Amy Elizabeth!
