MEET JESS :: FOREIGN ROOM

guest-2

It’s fair to say, I’m very particular about my slice of the Internet. So when it comes to handing over the reigns for a guest post, well quite rightly, I’m fussy. Recently, I stumbled across Jess’ blog, Foreign Room, quite by accident whilst looking at Lindy Bop dresses on Instagram. I was so bowled over with her love of prints and colour that I had to get in touch and invite her to share one of her outfit posts with us! Without further a do, take it away Jess! guest-1

Hello UK friends! It is really nice to be here and connecting with new people from all over! Today I am here to share with you an outfit that I recently put together. I think that I would describe my style as girly, fun, and maybe a bit romantic. I love a good swing skirt or dress, novelty prints, and things that are vintage inspired. I also like my outfits to have a level of comfort to them, while also feeling put together and not like I have just thrown my sweats on! For me, a dress is the perfect go-to when I am in doubt of what to wear.

I’ve had this particular dress for two years now, but if you can believe it, this is only the third time I’ve worn it! It is one of those dresses that has been sandwiched in between my other dresses and that I have just passed by so many times when searching for something to wear. Now that I have it on again, though, I’m disappointed that I have let it sit for so long, unloved! It is pretty comfortable and can easily be styled casually for everyday wear. Plus, it is a lovely print!

Something else that I definitely love are bags. I have so many bags and purses, it is almost ridiculous. But, I love it that way and don’t mind one bit! I recently snagged this minty beauty at Kate Spade during a sale. It is such a great color and is the perfect size to just take the essentials along with me.

While I do live in California, we haven’t really had very warm summer temps here in San Francisco yet, so for me a cardigan is a must have item for most outfits! Aside from keeping me warm, I think cardigans add a nice touch of detail and color to any outfit. Also, as you may have noticed, mint is one of my very favorites 🙂 It is just such a fun color!guest-6guest-7
My love for this dress has been renewed and I will definitely be getting more use out of it in the future! While I don’t mind dressing in layers too much, I am hoping that the weather will warm up so I will be able to pull out some of my other favorite dresses and do more summery things in my free time 🙂

Well, there you have it! It was so nice to be a guest blogger here and I hope to see some of you over at my blog, Foreign Room, where I write about style, adventure, and life in CA with my boyfriend & dog! Big thanks to Donna for being such a kind host 🙂

Anytime Jess! It’s been a pleasure! xx
