What I Wore Wednesday

The weather has totally turned on us in Glasgow and it has made me really sad. I've already posted about my kick ass Ohio Bandits Apparel Co "I love Ohio" t-shirt previously and you can see it in my MicroScooter review so this week I'm flashing back to the warm weather and what I wore two weeks ago to a social media event in Glasgow.

I bought this maxi dress super crazy mega reduced at the end of last summer. Butterfly prints were really in last summer but I couldn't find a single item that I liked until I found this dress. I actually almost bought it before it went on sale but they didn't have the dress in my size. When I saw it in my size and on sale I snapped it up even though I knew I wouldn't really get a chance to wear it again until next year.

The material is sorta shiny and slippery and hard to describe; despite the fact that it is a bit of a tight fit in the chest (what isn't on me?) it is actually really comfortable and was the perfect choice for a hot day.

Do you buy clothes end of season and save them for next year or do you tend to shop only the current season?

Love your dress,I'm so into butterflies at the minute( i wore my butterfly dress this week too) I have 4 children alway wanting money so everything I buy myself is always a bargain but I love it this way I am alway on the look out for a great buy :)

Too funny Blondie, I am wearing the EXACT SAME DRESS today. I got it from eBay after seeing an acquaintance wear it at a wedding last year. Hope you're not likely to be over at my side of the city today! You look beautiful xx

so so pretty! i love butterflies on things, and it looks amazing on you. I do buy things out of season but also get really impatient as i love to wear those newbies! :)x

Luckily for you right now I am in pajamas with no plans to go Southside ;)

That maxi dress is so cute!!

Thanks for hosting!! :)

Love your maxi dress.  It looks very comfy.  I always try to buy things that are drastically reduced and that usually means buying out of season.  It works for me.

What a gorgeous maxi dress, love the print. I'm so with you on the weather, I was deeply saddened last night to have to turn the heating on last night. x

Melaina25 said...

Cool butterflies! I love buying things on sale at the end of the season and enjoy waiting to wear them the next season. 

Melaina25 said...

Lovely dress - I tend to buy stuff whenever - and if I find them on sale, the better! I am going to vote for you now :) have a wonderful day.

Melaina25 said...

Thanks for hosting!

Melaina25 said...

Oh I LOVE your maxi dress!

Melaina25 said...

Cute dress.  Good luck on the MAD awards.

I love that maxi dress.  I can't wait until my trip to Scotland in September...when I will definitely be hitting up a Dorothy Perkins store.

I'll buy shoes for me or stuff for my kids at the end of a season, but I don't normally buy clothes then.  I'm too fickle and will change my mind by the time it comes to actually wear it.  Love the butterfly dress!

Melaina25 said...

I'm a huge maxi dress and flipflop fan - so cute! I wish they made maxis that fit my body {I'm too long in the torso and too tall}!!

Melaina25 said...

I try to shop the sales, especially for my kids, but who knows for sure what size they will be next season? Oh well, I guess I'll just have to buy for me! ;)

Melaina25 said...

I have the same problem! Pretty much everything is too snug in the chest. ;)  And I absolutely will buy something end of season clearance and save it for the next year. ;) It is so much fun to pull out your seasonal stuff and have some brand new stuff to wear.
Love the dress on you - you look adorable. ;)

Melaina25 said...

Yay for maxidresses! :)

Melaina25 said...

Good to see the sun shining in your neck of the woods! And great job on the maxi, I don't wear any dresses or skirts below the knee because I feel I look like a night stand. And YES I buy out of season and save for the next. You know me, I snap up good deals.

Melaina25 said...

Cute dress! I must admit I don't usually buy end of season stuff, because unless it's a piece I really love, I tend to buy stuff that's on trend for one season.  

Melaina25 said...

Yes, I definitely have bought things I knew I might only wear a time or two before the weather changed. And your dress is pretty, so it's a great beat-the-heat investment for next year.

Melaina25 said...

I really need to do it more often. I love shopping sales and the sales here seem to be weather specific!

Melaina25 said...

I've never really done it before! I was desperate to get end of season black boots but no dice :(

Melaina25 said...

WTF do you mean you look like a night stand weirdo? Unfortunately that sun was two weeks ago. We built a brand new kick ass jungle gym thing for BB and of course it is rainy and gross now.

Melaina25 said...

They are sooo comfy!

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! There is a store here called Pepperberry which has different sizes like "10- Curvy" and "10-Super Curvy" so they always fit in the boobs. I love it but it is a bit expensive!

Melaina25 said...

That is my problem! I always think I should do that for BB but who knows what size he'll be when!

Melaina25 said...

gotta love comfy cute dresses. thanks so much for hosting :)

You have the opposite problem of me- Shorty McShortyson :)

Melaina25 said...

I was desperate for end of season black boots but couldn't find any :(

Melaina25 said...

They hide a multitude of sins, too :)

Melaina25 said...

Where in Scotland are you going? If you are in Glasgow let me know!

Melaina25 said...

Thank you Trina :)

Melaina25 said...

Thank you! It is so comfy!

Melaina25 said...

Of course! I think it is maxi dress week all around :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks for voting! My Mom taught me to always go to the sale rack first and then look around the rest of the store :)

Melaina25 said...

I'm so impatient! I think that is my problem :)

Melaina25 said...

We built up a super amazing jungle gym thing for Blondie Boy while he was at his Grandma's and of course it is POURING now :(

Melaina25 said...

I love a good bargain but I'm impatient with waiting to wear things!

Melaina25 said...

Thanks for linking :)

Melaina25 said...

Thanks Tiffany! I liked that it was butterflies without being too OTT

Melaina25 said...

That is my problem I am SO impatient! I need to try and be better. My Mom taught me to always go to the sale rack first and then look at the rest of the store so I do follow her rules :)

Melaina25 said...

I'm very lucky BB is an only grandchild so I very rarely have to buy him clothes :)

Melaina25 said...

You look gorgeous, love that dress, good old Dotty P's! I also wanted something with butterflies last year but never did find anything :( I just always buy what I like (when I can) and if it comes around again then all the better :) 

Melaina25 said...

I love that dress, you look  great in it. I buy end of season all the time. I try and stick with more classic pieces but if it's something I love who cares.

Melaina25 said...

Looks great x
