Forest Neutral..

Darlene Dress: Dolly + Dotty*

I mentioned there was more Dolly + Dotty love to spread and it seemed as though there was no time like the present. Since returning home from the weekend, I've been in something of a panic mode about just how much there is to do before the festive season. I'm yet to post my Christmas cards and my #bloggersecretsanta present is one of the only ones remaining to be posted.

Tea and Cakes heels: Irregular Choice
I made a to-do list the other day, which is more than ten pages of my notebook long, but weirdly it's been helpful to have it all written down and I've ticked a good number of things off so far. I was tempted to go to the cinema (I really want to see Krampus) last night, but gave it a miss as I figured my time would be better spent getting some of the baking backlog done and finishing some of the Christmas presents I've been making. I also cleared another bundle of things out of the wardrobe room and listed them on my clothes sale, and there's more to add.

So, this is my second Dolly + Dotty dress. This is Darlene and I have to admit, this one more of a step outside of my comfort zone than Petal. I don't often plump for block colours and can't think of the last time I chose anything as neutral as beige. I have to admit, though, as soon as I put it on, I loved it. I also received plenty of comments on it, too. 

Obviously, I teamed with a pair of Irregular Choice shoes which were floral, so as not to have a completely plain outfit. And I wore mt floral coat, which didn't make it into the photos. It doesn't look as though this colourway is still available on the Dolly + Dotty site at the moment, but there are plenty of others to choose from.
