ACID GREEN GRANNY

Hii,

The sun is finally out so me and Lexie decided to push the boat out with our blog photos and actually cross the road where there's a pretty (not really that pretty) river/lake thing ha. If you saw my recent post, you'll see I picked up loads of Agyness Deyn treats from the Dr Marten shop.The floral tea dresses are my favourite but I feel i'm a little bit grannyish in them - obviously Agyness Deyn models them perfectly in her promotion photos, if only we could all look as perfect as her!

I thought I could grunge it up a little with my coltranes and vintage denim, but i'm still not that convinced. I think it's because it's really not something I would usually buy. It unbuttons all the way to the top so next time I wear it i'm going to try wearing it as a maxi waistcoat kinda thing with something cute underneath. I'm sure it will look cute in the height of summer anyway. If not, I can always take it up...








Floral midi dress - Agyness Deyn for Dr Martens / Chain - River Island / Coltrane boots - Jeffrey Campbell / Jacket - Levis via car boot sale / Frilly socks - eBay / Belt - Topshop

What to do you think? How would you style this?

  3. It looks great! You don't look granny-ish at all but I know what you mean about trying to style something you're not used to.

  4. I think it's super cute like this. Maybe it's just because you're not used to the length, I'm a fan of midi!

  5. I think you've styled it really well! I'd swap the tan belt for a big black vintage one and add some black cat eye sunnies - looks lush though!

  25. I feel the same when something is out of my normal comfort zone, I think it'll look good unbuttoned with a cute top and shorts underneath
