(Hat: ASOS, Jacket: Oh My Love, Scarf: Topshop, Dress: Zara, Bag: Zara, Shoes: C/O Bertie at Sarenza)

It's safe to say I've found dressing for this weather a little tricky ('yes, it's just you Liv'- I hear you scream). Perhaps it's the fact the only time this hat comes away from my head is when I'm in the bath, or when an unfortunate gust blows it off, and the fact most of my floral or pastel dresses simply don't quite cater for 180 denier tights- but I'm starting to feel ready for Spring. Laughably, there was a time last Summer where I genuinely (and romantically) thought 'Ah, how I can't wait to wear tights and jumpers and layers again'- that's cute Liv. I promise to never say such a thing again- and it's safe to say I'll be burning all of my tights the second the temperature hits twenty degrees (okay, not quite- but you get the jist).

Either way, this outfit was something a little braver for me. Yes, I said brave. I justified it by playing the 'I know I'm dressed as an art teacher card (nothing wrong with that, arty ones)'- but I guess I had more of a Stevie Nicks look in mind, opposed to an easel wielding creative type, but regardless- I've now 'braved' the light shoes and dark tights and floral midi look, and perhaps it's not all too bad on me after all.

  9. love this outfit Olivia, it reminds me of Natalie Suarez's style, very boho and chic and yeah come to think of it, it does remind me of art too <3 but in a good way of course.
    you always look amazing no matter the outfit, the dress and shoes just goes so well together and the hat, I understand why you can never seem to part with it, it's just a staple <3

  52. Love this super adorable 70s dress! Paired with the shoes, it is such a stunner! But it can be quite loud together, so the black tones it down nicely. And the hat is such a cute embellishment! Lovely!
