Focus on legs...

Navy has always seemed a boring and conservative colour to me. When I bought this dress a couple of years ago it was only because of the slimming effect. This is my attempt to spice the dress up:







































I'm very proud to show you all that I remembered to check the rear view!







































I was uninspired when I took the photos, so I ended up with a shot of the details, that really don't show much detail! I think my hair's alright...

























The burnt orange with the navy is definitely one of my favorite combinations, and adding burgundy, pink and turquoise took the business associations away immediately! I also think that I've managed to disguise my tummy very well, which I'm extremely pleased with!

I did take other photos during last week, but they didn't turn out that well so I decided not to post them.

 My exams project was due last week, and that certainly didn't turn out well either! Together with a classmate I'm now trying to pick up the pieces and come up with an acceptable solution. But it's depressing.

Anyway, I'm joining a lot of other very visibly dressed ladies at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style blog for Visible Monday, which always brings back my good mood!

Looking a bit ahead I'm overjoyed to tell that on Saturday Anna of Four Seasons One Wardrobe is coming to Copenhagen, and we're going to meet! There'll be plenty of photos, just not in sandals as we planned since temperatures here are down to the low fifties, in Fahrenheit, with lots of wind and rain.


I'm wishing you all a very Visible Monday!

  1. What a fun meet up! I hope you post pictures of the two of you together.
    I LOVE the color of those tights and it does kick down the conservativeness of the dress just as planned. This blogging has really got me on a dress/colored tights kick. I want more!

  3. The watch, rings, and tights really make this outfit sing. You look fabulous. I also noticed delightful turquoise edging on the soles of those fantastic shoes. Excellent!

    1. Thank you Patti! I keep thinking I should have more rings and watches, but I guess it's not that urgent. You'll here all about it if my exams project doesn't work out!

  5. Your bright tights just reeled me in from Patti's Visible Monday. The added touches of unexpected colors of pink, turquoise and burgundy were the icing on the cake! Well done.

  6. sorry to hear about the exam. :(

    I love the combo of the orange tights with the navy. And I'm so envious of you getting to meet another blogger. I've been at it for nearly two years...and have yet to meet another face to face, because I live off the beaten track.

    1. Thank you Terri! I do consider myself very lucky - and we'll both take lots of photos for our blogs! Anna and I actually live far apart from each other, but I'm not too far from Copenhagen where one of her friends happen to live. So, it's purely coincidence that we get this chance!

  9. I think this is a very pretty combination. The tights make the dress zing. I think your hair looks really good too. It has a lot of body--something I envy!

    1. Thank you very much Debbie! I had a good hair day - normally it's very flat although it's curly. I spend a fortune on haircuts and clever colouring - but it's worth every penny!

    1. Thank you so much Anna! With the weather being so cold I'll be disguising my slim-looking figure in several layers, so I'm warning you: I'll look fat! See you too!

  13. No worries Tine! Although I have worked hard I don't seem to have forgot to eat. In other words, I don't only look fat I am fat! Now back to packing!
