Southampton Day Trip OOTD

So, I'm just trying something out and doing an outfit of the day post. I don't know if this will be worth it, or if anyone cares, but I don't know, I thought I'd give it a go. I'm a bit bored of seeing all the samey looks all the time, so here's my own ~look~ if only to throw a little variety into the mix. I'm also not a massive fan of the thousands of pictures of the same outfit, with different wistful looks into the distance, so I didn't bother with that. You get the idea from one photo, I think. Although next time I might bother with some detail shots, because I seem to have missed out my shoes...
In putting this up, I am in no way saying that I am fashionable, or a fashionista, or that anyone should be awed by my sense of style, but I like seeing how people dress, especially people who don't fit the model mould, so hey ho, I'll give it a go.
The other weekend we went down to Southampton for a little bit of a wander around and I wore quite a casual, comfy outfit. Not pictured are my brogues, which I mentioned in my Liebster Award post. I didn't manage to get them in a picture, but you can use your imagination I'm sure. I kept my makeup really simple as well (what's that called? A face of the day? Something like that) and kept the focus on my paisley dress. I'm a big fan of paisley and burgundy and this dress ticks both boxes.

Unfortunately (or fortunately) for you, most of these items are pretty old, so you won't be able to ~steal my style~ if you were colourblind enough to want to, but I think paisley is pretty in right now, and there are always denim shirts banging about. 
So, there we go, my first OOTD post. Did you like it? Would you like more pictures, or is one enough? Let me know!
