Another look with the red coat. Despite being a bright colour, the coat seems to be very versatile. This time paired with a dress that I had for ages, the red in the flowers goes with the red coat and the rest of the accessories is brown. I have even dug out a necklace, in the shape of an elephant, that I used to wear when I was a teenager and that was a long time ago.

I think when trying to wear a mini dress with leggings but not to look too old fashioned is to wear it with shiny leggings. this pair I got of e-bay and it cost me around £5. Together with leather booties, it has a very modern, tough look. The belt is from patent leather and the coat is a wrap-up type.
A charity shop finds as usual. I was trying to find an outfit to be able to wear this fun necklace and I think I have finally found it. The dress is good for any dinner parties as it is roomy enough to hide a ‘food baby’ but with high heels doesn’t look too frompy.
That’s mine on a budget wedding guest outfit. Both clothing items were from charity shops. The dress I have bought in the middle of the winter, the best time to buy dresses, and the bolero I have got a day before the event, which was lucky. I think it all works because all items are in the same cool scale of browns and beiges.
