Red Floral Dress

Happy Monday everyone! Wishing you all a great start to the week.

I found the most gorgeous dress from Cue! It's a vibrant red colour with pretty flowers scattered all over in shades of white and blue as well as subdued tones of orange-y/brown. I love the pairing of the two primary colours, blue and red, together and the stark white flowers against the red background really stand out.

The crepe material is so soft and the dress is a comfortable fit without being tight, sitting nicely along the shape of your figure. It is also fully-lined and of high-quality. I wear a lot of Cue clothing, so I will vouch for the quality. Of course, it all depends on the fabric, but I have dresses from Cue dating back five years which I still wear. The wide frill hem and belt add that extra touch of femininity.

I know it's a little on the pricey side, but the style itself is a classic cut as is the print and colour scheme, so  you'll definitely get your wear out of it.

It's also very appropriate to wear to work on Valentine's Day (insert heart-eyes emoji) ;-)

Trendy workout tights - February 2018

I've been wanting to buy a pair of black workout tights for some time now, but I didn't want just any ordinary pair - I wanted something with a bit of pizzazz! 
Last Saturday I spotted a pair of animal-print tights in the window of the Running Bare store at my local and went in to try them on. Whilst there, I found these sexy black tights. These are definitely my favourite black tights! I can't boast enough about how comfortable and soft they are, and the fit is per-fect. I love these tights!! The fabric is lightweight and breathable, so great for cardio workouts.

I wore them on Tuesday for the first time and received so many compliments and had heaps of women ask where I bought them. The style name is 'Set the Standard' and you certainly 'set the standard' in these! They're a high-waisted fit, full length (well, for me anyway!), so perfect for the coming cooler months and of high-quality. What I love most is the perforated mesh panelling, which reveals a little skin, adding a touch of sexiness! ;-)

I also bought the tights I initially went in to try. These are hot, hoT, HOT!! The style is Hear Me Roar tights and I am obsessed with them. Like the black pair, they're full length and the fabric is lightweight and comfortable. I love the colour combination and the pattern - give me all the animal prints, haha! 

Anyway, I am loving all the bright colours and pretty designs in Running Bare at the moment. Best of all, they're made in Australia. yay!
