Last week, I had a little self-indulgent rant about how easy it is to loose yourself in the never-ending sea of bloggers and social media. Missed it? Check it out here. Thank you all so much for your heart-warming and supportive comments! You have been the rainbow in my cloudy mind. Gees- pass the stilton, Rach! 

Today I bring you yet another outfit that's looks like it's walked out of some sort of trippy, Seventies rainbow. This Zaful maxi dress is about as bright as it gets! The print is like the love child of Joni Mitchell and Rainbow Brite, with some South-East Asian flowers thrown in. Although the body-con shape did discern me at first **hello thunder thighs**, it's super comfy and instantly uplifts my mood.

It is a rainbow and the current tropical, Monsoon season. I thought England was the wettest place on Earth, but I was wrong. Tropical North Queensland takes the prize for sogginess! I'm off back to the UK to visit family in a week and I'm not too sure how my tropical-accustomed blood will react to the chill factor. I'm super excited though! To say I have been Pinning 100 Winter outfits per day would be an understatement. 

Bring on the snow!

Rachel

  3. Wow, this dress is just gorgeous! I love the colors and prints and they look fabulous on you, Rachel! I also love the addition of the necklace, as it adds to the '70s feel, as well as a finishing touch to the look; such great styling! Thanks so much for the inspiration and I hope you're having a lovely start to your day, beauty!

  4. Clouding action does get into the way regardless but we just need to remind ourself the reason we started, who we are and stick to what we believe is our true identity :) Looking great in the dress and hope you're having a great time spending the remaining days in 2015!!

  13. The colourful print on your Zaful Cross Floral Print Sleeveless Dress is beautiful! It looks fabulous on you - you have a beautiful figure - and I like also like the Lovisa statement necklace you wore with it. Best wishes for your visit with family in the UK and for a fashiontastic year 2016!

  39. Oh that's great that you'll be back in the UK for a few! I'm still waiting for winter to hit the New York area. It's weirdly not cold for late December. I'm not sure how it is there but it might not exactly be the winter you remember.
