SL2 PICKS – WINTER DRESS

Winter is only days away – 7 days to be exact.

Here in Brisbane it doesn’t really feel like it – Mother Nature teases us with a couple of cool days here and there and then back to warm days again.

The nights though are getting cooler so when planning a night out (for us this is every Friday) I’m definitely on the hunt for a dress with sleeves.

Hubby and I have a Date night every Friday, the benefits of having older children with only one still left at home. We don’t go anywhere super expensive (just a local restaurant, this quite often is the local Sushi Train – I’m slightly addicted to sushi) then to our local club for a few drinks and home again. For hubby home to the football and a couple of beers and for me chocolate and Netflix.

It’s our little Friday night ritual and we love it, we get to wind down after a busy week, spend time together and then home to relax.

I like to wear something that I’m able to wear to work and then with a couple of changes out to dinner. I found this cute Bitter Sweet Black Floral Dress (this also comes in a lovely pink print too) from one of my favourite little online boutiques – Little Party Dress that will be perfect for date night.

If you haven’t discovered Little Party Dress you need to – Kel has the most fabulous range of cheap and cheerful dresses, as well as some separates. All dresses are well under $100.00, with most around the $60.00 – $70.00 mark with new stock arriving every Wednesday night, the choices are endless.

This dress is very oversized so I have gone with the size 8 but by doing this it has made it a bit short for me to wear on its own.

I added my favourite pair of distressed jeans to the dress to get past this but you could also wear with a pair of black leggings or with black stockings and knee high black boots.

This dress can also been worn buttoned up to the neck but I find having big boobs that I need to show a bit of decolletage for a more flattering shape.

And when the cooler weather actually arrives all you need to do is add a jacket –  I have added my Feather and Noise Miller Biker Jacket and changed to a pair of boots.

This dress also comes with a belt which you can use to tie around the waist for a bit more shape or around the neck.

Items marked with an * were gifted to me for editorial consideration.

  • Love that you and Rob have your weekly Friday night date nights – this is the perfect outfit for catching up and feeling totally relaxed. It looks fabulous styled both ways too! Those boots though – love heart eyes! xx
