Black Layer Dress and Marsala Details

Akita and brunette in sweater dress and marsala fedora

I am in love with simple outfits lately – a sweater dress, a fedora and matching boots. Casual and uncomplicated, yet with a few little details to spice the look up.

This black sweater dress with layered hem is an old winter staple of mine. The accessories are relatively new and I’m quite in love with the colour of this H&M fedora. It’s such a lovely shade of red – something like bordeaux or marsala. I’m also particularly fond of these Bunker boots. Their red metallic snake embossing adds a fun 80s vibe and the short heel is the perfect walking height for me.

This braided necklace is currently on sale at H&M. It’s quite a clever construction with faceted plastic beads in a mesh casing and silver metal details.

The only downside to wearing black is the blonde hair issue we seem to have at the moment.

Spring must undoubtedly be on its way as the dogs have started shedding like mad and as pretty as Akitas look…we end up finding blonde hair on virtually everything these days. We now have a lint roller – in every room.

    Gorgeous outfit and photos! I love the colour of the fedora, it’s such a lovely shade and ties in beautifully with your boots and necklace. And what a cutie your dog is. My Chihuahua is constantly shedding and her hairs are always all over our clothes so I feel for you, thank god for lint rollers! Katie xx

    your dog is so cute. I see he is watching at you with attendation, that’s always a sign of a good and loyal dog. When a dog cares about his owner, he is always making eye contact.

    Your outfit is so perfect. I love that LBD…and the marsala details are simply splendid.
