I was recently asked to take part in this month's Style Compare blogger style challenge. This month's theme was metallics, and while I was apprehensive at first to say the least, I ended up picking this sweet little metallic dress from Topshop via Style Compare, which features a subtle metallic chevron print.

(Dress, c/o Topshop via Style Compare;
Mint green peeptoe low wedges, Urban Outfitters;
Neon coral belt, F+F at Tesco;
Necklace, Swarovski;
Mulberry Alexa in Petticoat White.)

Decided to pair my dress with ladylike tones and a little burst of colour at the waist, even though this belt is a tad too big for me now. It's the perfect length and a super cosy, stretchy fit but creases like mad, as you can see, shortly after hopping out of a car. Either way, it taps into a few SS12 trends pretty well as being seriously versatile (leather jacket on top for something edgier, worn with white Converse low tops for a daytime look, the list goes on!). I even wore it out for a meal the other evening teamed with a chunky mens' belt, black tights, flatforms and a statement necklace!

As with most blogger style challenges, if I win, you also win! You can pop a vote in for my entry here if you feel so inclined, I'd be super grateful if you did, although the other entries are gorgeous too. Hope everyone is well and keeping up post-Jubilee spirits, it's been a bit of a 'blah' week for me, but hopefully I'll be able to pick myself up again soon - onwards and upwards and all of that, isn't it?
