Motel Heidi Dress

dress courtesy motel, tights - h&m, shoes - dune

This is the happiest I've been with a set of outfit phoos in a while, which is mainly due to the insane flatteringness of the Motel Heidi Dress. It is just the perfect shape - high neckline, super slimming waist and gorgeous flowy skirt - I am in love. Again!

I realise pretty much every week I tell you about the latest piece of clothing I am in love with, terrible consumerist that I am, but this time it really is true love forever! Promise!

This is also the first time I've worn these tights, despite owning them for over a year. They were an impulse buy at H&M, curse them for displaying so many things right by the tills, and then having the longest queues in the world... Of course I got them home and could find absolutely nothing that went with them, but I kind of like the comination of the bright tights and bright dress together.

Oh dear! My eyes are feasting, this is the best dress I've seen for a while. Loved the color, the cut, the waist - everything. Shame that neck line looks awful on me, I'd have gone for a dress like this. The contrast with tights' color is so fun x

You are so cute!

Gorgeous dress and those tights are perfect - such a great colour combination.

confusedbrit said...

gorgeous cut, gorgeous colour....just gorgeous basically! I love the tights and dress together, they make the perfect combo!

And shhh, but I'm the same about clothes....everything is the thing I'll wear forever until the next impulse comes along!!

Impulse buys are the worst! But at least it worked out for you with those tights and that GORGEOUS dress. Love the color :)

Such a beautifully cut dress, and the colours both work so well together, I am always buying tights that are unsuitable for wear with any of my regular clothes. These pictures are beautiful, it’s like you’re in your own secret garden xxx

celia said...

You look gorgeous. The dress is such a lovely shade, perfect colour combo!
I have the same tights but they must be hidden in the depths of my drawers as I can't remember having worn them in ages, oops.

The colour looks amazing on you.
The tights shouldn't work but they totally do.

You look beautiful.
The dress is lovely on it's own, but it looks perfect teamed with those tights and shoes! So cute.
Reminds me a little of belle from beautiful & the beast.

I'm having a giveaway on my blog, I'd love if you could check it out!

Elyse (Give Me Bows) said...

You look absolutely lovely! You have given me a serious lemming for that dress! :)

LilyLipstick said...

This dress looks beautiful on you, the cut and colour of it are stunning. I have a pair of tights like yours but I think I've only worn them once - I always forget about all my coloured tights and just end up grabbing a black pair every single day. x

Marie said...

The cut of that dress is so unusual - if I saw it on the website I'd probably pass it up thinking it'd look funny and billowy but it looks great on, really really suits you!

jessica sandoval said...

That dress is BEAUTIFUL! I love how you paired it with those tights, which are *brilliant*!

Helen said...

ooh I love the tights! They look perfect with this outfit Harriet.

Jo said...

A brilliantly zingy colour combination. It's always tempting to tone turquoise with greens or blues but the red is so much better! You've definitely found the perfect use for those tights.

Camelia said...

I love the color of that dress, it looks so gorgeous with the tights as well, i might have to go out and buy some of those, they're so pretty. I love the way it looks together, and you're right the dress is super flattering. I love it! :)

Anita said...
