A Lilac Dream – OOTD

IMG_5758

Autumn has arrived and with that the days feel shorter and the nights feel so much colder. To combat the drabness of Autumn I’ve decided to dress head to toe in spring-wear; colour, sunhats and bare legs (rebellious, I know) with cute cardigans like this one from Doll Me Up Inc. Another item I feel that encapsulates warmer days is my new Sun Jellies Atomic bag in lilac; it’s design allows it to be the perfect everyday bag and keeps my outfits light and fun.

If you follow me on Instagram (@missflossypots #shamelessplug) you will see that I have fallen for the Sun Jellies brand hard; if you’ve never owned a Sun Jellies original I highly recommend you do immediately. My only regret is that I didn’t get a tote sooner; all of those trips to the supermarket and having to lug uncomfortable plastic bags up hill – my hands could have been saved from that nightmare! The Atomic Tote has an awesome feature that allows you to clip the handles together for comfortable handling and I saw on their Instagram that you can swivel the clip part around so the top of the tote can clip in for better security; so versatile! Now let’s talk storage; this baby can get A LOT in it at 40x45x16cm, I can fit my huge camera bag in it which is a HUGE advantage to me; I despise the ugliness of my black camera bag and now I can disguise it in a lilac dream. All in all I freaking LOVE it and now I want an Atomic Tote in every colour!

Also I have seriously been loving Lady V London as soon as I received my Lilac tote I went straight on the Lady V London website and snapped up this beauty within five minutes. I never thought of wearing purple but I am starting to gain a bit of a purple collection and I’m not even a little bit mad about it. If you’re unsure about purchasing from Lady V London – just bite the bullet because you seriously won’t regret it. I have had so much wear out of my two dresses (I will be adding more). This style is called a tea dress which does come a bit up shorter than most of the typical fifties styled swing skirts but I combat that by rolling my petticoat up and you can also get away with no petticoat (I do this for work sometimes) the skirt is gathered ever so slightly so it lays nicely on my hips. And they’re ethically made in England!!

What are some of your favourites at the moment? I am obsessed with this outfit I’m probably going to wear it a million times this month. ALSO I will be heading up to Auckland at the end of the month so please leave some shopping/food recommendations; I’m a complete novice when it comes to Auckland! And I will be blogging the whole trip – would you like me to take OOTD photos? Let me know below!

‘Dolce’ Pink Spray Floral Swing Dress from Lindy Bop – Review

16-10-11-miss-flossypots-69Whilst I was up in Auckland a couple of months ago I had the opportunity to shoot with an amazing photographer by the name of The Undefined Photography. I thought I would dedicated these high quality images (I wish all my post’s photos were this nice) to a dress review – after all I love this dress! A huge thank you to Katherine ( The Wardrobe/The Undefined Photography) for giving me such an incredible experience – she made me feel so comfortable during the photo-shoot (which is no easy feat, I’m an awkward person) and she made every photo look incredible and each photo feels unique and different to the rest. Check out her blog here – she has amazing outfit of the day posts and interviews with some incredible pinups such as Miss Hero Holiday and Miss Victory Violet plus she is just a beautiful person inside and out!
