Mexican Blanket Style {She Wore What}

Ah the wonders of modern technology. Where would we be without social media? My social calendar would be in disarray, far flung friends would be hard to keep up with and fantastic fashion discoveries would be in the hands of the fashion gods. But thanks to Instagram I found a fantastic dress!

I saw it and instantly fell in love. It reminded me of a Mexican blanket. Too cool! I asked the wearer where she got it, expecting some lucky eBay find or perhaps even a homemade number. Not so, readily available at a major department store and at a bargain price!

Meet my Mexican blanket dress...

You see what I mean? Incidentally, if you want an ACTUAL Mexican blanket, you can pick one of these babies up at Your One Stop Pin Up Shop for just $19.95!

I couldn’t help but post this under the #showsuger hashtag yesterday I mean come on, neon AND stripes!? This is quite possibly my most favourite dress of the spring/summer season. For now anyway. It’s cute, colourful, cool and oh so comfortable! You can wear it as is or with a belt and it’s sure to put a pep in your step. I feel fantastic whenever I wear it. It’s just such a happy dress!

I’ve worn it with cowboy boots for a real authentic look (and to save my feet and shoes from a dusty paddock) but a cute pair of colourful flats just makes this whole outfit sing. The cut out at the back is perfect for keeping cool on hot days and also just so happens to show off my Mexican sugar skull back tattoo. I can also see the outfit really popping with a colourful bead necklace (I’m thinking a bright aqua type blue) but with my rose chest tattoos I opted for my trusty simple silver chain.









Dress - K-Mart Size 12 $15
Belt - Old Faithful (can't remember where from or how much)
Shoes - Payless Size 6 $15 (part of a 2 for $30 deal)

If you’re looking for something longer and a bit more flowy and you don’t mind the more expensive price tag, Gold Coast boutique A Little Birdie Told Me also stock this stunning Rita Maxi or you can get it online here. I LOVE the pom poms on this, VERY cute and authentic.

Rita Maxi - A Little Bird Told Me $99.95

What do you think? Do you like my little number or is the maxi more your style?

I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images.
Maybe you could space it out better?
