The Bare Legs.

So, leading up to my trip to Thailand in September i decided to start to detox my thoughts on baring my legs. Its a long time phobia of mine, however to remain sane/cool/alive in the bussteling city of Bangkok and in order not to actually melt, i really had to face my fears!

Im really loving layering collared shirts under my skater dresses at the moment, perfect way to keep warm and add some print, without being too overbaring! Also my new chunky heeled loafers are just divine! So comfortable and will defiently be a staple of my winter wardrobe.
P.s. My shirt and cardigan are both thrifted! Got these both these gems on the same day!
The Outfit:
Dress - Glassons skater dress.
Top - Thrifted floral shirt.
Cardigan - Thrifted gold lurex shirt with pearl buttons.
Bag - Thrifted pale gold quilted bag with chain strap.
Shoes - Wittner mustard yellow loafers, currently on sale for $45!

    1. Thanks babe! I just know that in Thailand i will melt if i dont get used to it.. Ive travelled in the heat before but it was about 4-5 years ago and well before i became so conscious about my outfits! (Making it ALOT easier to dress in whatever was comfiest!) xo

  6. You have great legs sweety, but I understand we all have our own 'self phobia' areas. I never thought to layer a collared shirt under a skater dress, shall add it to my 'too try' list. <3

    1. Thanks Nat, its just hard you know? I have ALWAYS had a phobia about them, i think because i am so pale also, even when i was 15kg lighter 6 years ago i still had a phobia about them. Yes , you must try the skater dress layered! Perfect for winter to keep us warm :-) xx

  9. Baring the legs beautifully, and both the yellow of the dress and mustard of the shoe work well together. :)
