I have this in green. I'd like to be able to wear it in an everyday sense. I have three children under 5 and need to be able to throw things on. I am 33, size 14/16 and have no innate sense of style or colour. I hate choosing shoes as I just don't have a clue what will look nice and what will make me look like my mother. (Who is lovely, but 30 years older than me).

Any summer dress looks nice dressed down with a cropped denim jacket and a pair of tan leather sandals (flat or wedge heels).

I can't get the link to work, but a red cardi would look nice with a green dress.

i have these shoes in the lighter brown and they are really comfy and go with everything. I can walk miles in them. I had to put an extra hole in the strap as i have tiny ankles but otherwise fab shoes.

Thanks for the link katz - I like those shoes.

karbea - I'm not sure I'm brave enough to match a red cardi with a green dress. Really??? smile

Yes red goes really well with green.
I'm really into the colour wheel at the moment, I've alway been a black with black person, but when I got married earlier in the year I had bright blue shoes, I was going to have cream/ivory flowers, but that it would all look a bit wishy washy, so I read up about the colour wheel, and was brave and went with bright orange, and it looked amazing, had so many complements.

Look at this hope that works.
