OOTD | Lady in Red

 Before we went away, I had this fantastic idea that I would do a holiday look book which didn't evolve exactly as I had hoped. However, I did get some snaps of my favourite looks, massive shout out to my photographer Dan. One of the outfits I chose to shoot was this gorgeous red dress. I picked this up in Forever 21 which is definitely up there as a favourite shop of mine - you should definitely check them out if you haven't before!

I wore this outfit for dinner in Lindos village, although I think it would be great for going out back at home as well. It's classy but I love the fact that the back is open, and there is an elegant high neck too. I feel like a proper princess in this dress! Red is not a colour I would usually wear, so it's nice to mix it up a bit and try something new too.

My bag is from my Grandma, and I am absolutely obsessed with it. I love the detailing, and the handle - it is the perfect bag for a night out, or even just going for dinner. I think it goes perfectly with this dress, but would also liven up a jeans and tee combo for more casual occasions.

I kept it simple with a gold bangle from Primark, and these tan strappy sandals from Clarks. With the vibrant red dress, and detailed bag I didn't want to go too fussy with the shoes and jewels because it could have easily ruined the outfit! I absolutely love wearing gold jewellery on holiday too - it makes me feel so much browner! This bangle was an absolute bargain!

What do you think of my outfit? How would you accessorise this dress?
