This outfit is very much inspired by something I saw Millie Mackintosh wearing at the launch of her own clothing collection at the Manchester House of Fraser (see below!). My own outfit is slightly more budget friendly, so all the better for your bank balance.
Millie's dress was from her own collection (shop here
!), whereas my dress is from Blue Vanilla - I love the print and the cut, and it works so well over a crisp white shirt (mine is from SheInside
, and is a great piece in itself as it's a lovely long, slim fit). I threw on a pink fluffy teddy coat over the top - this one is from LilyLulu, whom I recently put together an edit for which you can shop here and get 20% off with my code HLF20!
. I'm also wearing those ASOS boots
- coveted by pretty much everyone I follow on Instagram, but who can blame us really? They're thigh high and fit far more snugly than any other similar boots I've seen, and they're a fairly reasonable £50 (as opposed to the gorgeous but very pricey Russell & Bromley pair
that Millie wore). The ASOS pair is currently sold out but fingers crossed for a restock - if you can't wait, these
are a nice alternative.
It's rather fitting that my outfit is Millie inspired, because I'm also wearing some of her latest jewellery collection for Dorothy Perkins
. The whole collection is really nice and reasonably priced, but as I generally prefer silver over gold I went for the matching pink and purple necklace
, and earrings
. A perfect match for the pinks and purples of my dress! Have you picked up anything from the collection?
I wore this outfit for lunch with the wonderful Victoria
(whose blog I'm sure you already read, but if you don't you certainly should!) who kindly took these photos.
