Motel California

I actually cannot remember the last time I blogged a dress (I think it was back in January for the Debenhams style challenge). When it comes to dresses I am very picky because they have never been something I naturally love. Even as a kid I wore trousers to my cousins wedding! Don't get me wrong I will happily wear a dress now, but I have to genuinely love it and feel comfortable. This one from Pretty Little thing ticked the box. It's from their new campaign called 'Motel California' which screams colourful florals and summer vibes. I checked out their look book and it was getting me super excited for the warmer weather! Check out the full collection here. I especially love their  Rose Print neck detail jumpsuit and their floral print playsuit!
So obviously right now, it's cold. Very. Cold. I had the challenge to style a dress for this winter weather. The main reason I picked this suedette dress is because the petrol blue colour is gorgeous! It's also a lightweight material so you shouldn't get too hot wearing this when we peak summer temperatures. I have this issue all the time with dresses (I am 5ft 8), but this one was a tad short, but you could easily wear this as a long top over leather biker trousers, or even unbutton the dress and have it looking like a loose shirt. 
So to make this suitable for the winter chill I styled it with my Public Desire Janine boots which I haven't worn in yonks! It always makes a nice change because I always tend to blog any new items that arrive but it's always great to mix and match new and old wardrobe pieces. 
The Boohoo oversized coat is an item I've worn LOADS! I think it works great for this look because the loose shape dresses down the outfit, plus it's longer than the dress so I don't have to worry about a gust of wind from behind ha! 
I bought the Quay Australia sunglasses from the Topshop Oxford Circus store but I haven't found anywhere in the UK that stocks them online! I will let you guys know once I've spotted some.

  1. I love the dress but I love more the grey boots. You should wear dresses more often, got lovely legs.

  2. I love this dress, it looks amazing on you! And those boots are fab too. It's funny I hated dresses when I was little now I wear them all the time xx

  3. Another perfectly put together outfit! I'm in love with that coat!

  4. Cute outfit Laura! I feel over the knee boots suit you so well! Grey definitely is definitely one of the best colours that goes well with your hair. I like the idea of wearing this dress as a loose shirt, definitely would look nice with a relaxed summer outfit! <3
