Forest Green and Oxford Grey

Dress: Sammydress | Cardigan: thrifted | Brooch: eBay | Tights: Calzedonia | Scarf: ? | Wellies: HunterSocks: Hunter

I've been so mentally and physically tired lately, due to my work and my lack of motivation... However, I promised myself to do outfit posts more often because the feedback has been encouragingly positive (thank you, everyone!), and I shall honour my word. 
This outfit hasn't been remotely possible without the floral dress, which you can purchase here (click through) for only 11€! What I love about this dress is the comfortable feel, the buttons and its slight mori girl style vibe. For those who don't know what the fuck am I talking about, Mori means forest in Japanese and this adorable fashion trend emerged in 2007, which style concept is basically the earthy look of a girl who lives in the forest or, at least, in the country - think tea, moss, vintage oversized cardigans, brown booties, books, a simple design, cotton, wool and cosy knitwear.
By the way, have you noticed the mushroom brooch? Pretty, huh? So, yes, you can wear Wintery yet Springtime-inspired clothes by pairing bits of style stolen from Asian trends with British countryside themed elements such as the farmer's favourite wellies, cable knit socks, scarf and cardigan. Besides, green and grey always work so well together!

  1. Na verdade o vestido a mim lembrou-me de imediato duas coisas que eu adorava na minha infancia: as bonecas Matilda (tinha uma e era a minha paixão) e a série Little House in the Prairie. Tem um vibe muito Laura Ingalls. Esse estilo assim - com o vestido bem curtinho como está - favorece-te imenso, e dá um quirk especial que mais ninguém que eu me lembre conseguiria pull off.

  5. Tens razão, esse tipo de verde fica bem com esse cinzento. Sempre depende dos tons.

  12. I love this outfit, and the boots look so cozy. I completely feel your pain on the whole motivation thing. Being a full time student and having an almost full time job makes it so easy to put off blogging, but I agree that the feedback you receive is so encouraging!

  15. Esse vestido é tão lindinho que eu acho que seria capaz de viver dentro dele! E adoro onde foste buscar inspiração para este outfit, tudo nele faz sentido e transmite uma agradável sensação de cozyness.
