Its felt like a while since I have done an OOTD post. When I first started this blog the plan was to be all fashion based but obviously that has changed in the two years FranklyMsShankly has been around. Mainly because I can never really be that bothered to get pictures of any outfits I wear. Don't get me wrong, I love a selfie, but when it comes to someone taking my photo for me, I just freeze up big time.
However when the sun is shining and you have a lovely vintage dress on, it would be wrong to not do a few OOTD style pictures!
Boots: New Look
I found this dress hiding away in the back of my wardrobe and I couldn't believe that I had managed to forget all about it. I believe I bought it some time last year from Armstrong in Edinburgh and it really is a gorgeous little number. Being on the curvy side of life, I love how this dress covers the parts I am most self concious about whilst nipping me in at the waist.
I've actually been avoiding dresses recently due to slight weight gain, so I was so happy to find this one still fits me. In the past I have always worn it during the summer with sheer tights and flat shoes but I was loving the more witchy vibes I was getting from the black tights and chunky boots. I think my mission for this year is to get back on the vintage train again and find more interesting and unusual pieces like this dress!
Alas I am still carrying about that awful bag. I honestly think I've started to despise it with a passion so the hunt is now on to find something new. I'm so picky when it comes to handbags, all I want is a nice slouchy bag. If anyone has any tips on where I can get a good but reasonably priced one, let me know.

Massive thank you to the lovely Karlie Simmonds, the lady behind The Swag Guide, for taking my pictures. I recently started a new job at LetsJoin as a food & drink contributor and get to work alongside her. We may have became each other's OOTD photographers now!
Till the next time!
