PERSONAL STYLE - WHERE'S THE REF?

As promised in one of my earlier style posts, I have something a little bit more 'dressed up' for you guys...I give you the slutty ref look! I actually didn't notice I looked a little bit like a referee gone bad until I saw the pictures, but it just makes me love the outfit more. This dress from Missguided is my new favourite, its so versatile and wearable, and pops of colour can be added so easily with a vibrant pair of shoes or even a slick of nail polish.

In fact Missguided are on form in the dresses department at the minute, there are so many others that I would love to add to my wardrobe, but May is ebay shopping month so I will have to hope for something special popping up on my search results...I'm sick of ebay suggesting that I should be buying gold lame stripper dresses!

Anyway, this is what I wore to a house-warming party, where as the only non-drinker (I'm a total saint don't you know), I got to laugh at the gang playing drinking games and predictably made repeat trips to the buffet for pizza and those cocktail sticks with sausage, pineapple and cheese...seriously, how great are those?!

Dress and Tights, Missguided.
Shoes, ASOS.
Envelope Clutch, Belt and Jewellery, H&M







NYC Pier 17 Polish
Rimmel Green With Envy 60 Seconds Polish


This outfit had too rather butch women shouting down the street how gorgeous I was...that has to mean it was a success...right?
Have you guys been wearing any sporty-themed outfits recently?
Any suggestions on what colours to wear with this dress next to add a bit of extra wow!

How about this sun UK readers...I'm off for some lunch on the grass...toodles!

    1. I kinda liked them because they were almost like a fake athletic sock - I wear the same black tights all the time and just wanted something different!
