green checks, bug eyes and in search of a rainbow

Hi guys! Yesterday it rained all day but finally around 6ish the clouds opened up and let some sunshine through, although it still remained very chilly.

I decided to go for an evening walk to the park to try and find a rainbow. In the hope that there would be a pot of gold at the end if i followed it! :) 

Unfortunately I didn't find a rainbow..sad i know! but I did find some colourful pretty flowers. Not quite the same...but hey ho!

My dress is from River Island and I was intitially drawn to it because of the colour and print. I like the design of the dress and how it gives the elusion of a hourglass shaped figure.

I paired it with a plain black t-shirt and some black leggings, seeing as the dress itself is quite busy and colourful.

I also wore a thick black coat because even thou the sun was out it was quite cold! and I wore my favourite boots from urban outfitters (this time in black)

I look like a bug with my big sunglasses! I remember reading somewhere that big sunglasses are better to wear because they cover up and protect more of the eye area from the sun. Thus preventing I don't particularly mind that I look like a bug! I don't know if anyone else has read that anywhere?

I actually won these sunglasses from bourjois together with a lipgloss, when I randomly entered a competition on their website :)

What I wore :

Coat: Topshop
Dress: River island
T-shirt: Vera Moda
Leggings: Gap
Boots: Urban Outfitters
Sunglasses: Bourjois

Squirrel running across the path!

What do you think of the dress?
