What I Wore



Cardigan - Mango
Dress - New Look
Belt - Primark
Tassle Bag - Zara
Sandals - River Island
Ring - Topshop

I am absolutely in love with maxi dresses. I avoided them for so long not thinking they'd suit my pear shape but I jumped on the bandwagon last year. I feel so feminine walking along, feeling the dress brush over my legs and ankles - I imagine palazzo pants have a similar effect, and I'm wanting a pair of those also. The only problem is having to pull them down often, being 5'9" has its downfalls y'know!

I wore this outfit on Thursday to a wedding reception in a gorgeous barn out in the country. I'm not looking to get married for a long time, nobody would be mad enough to spend their whole lives with me anyway, BUT I'm one of those girls that has a few ideas lodged in the back of my mind, especially after the royal wedding! For example, lanterns are a must. I'm sure when the time comes, all of that will go out of the window and it'll still be perfect. 

I wore the same dress today for my mum and dads surprise birthday meal. I just wore a full sleeved cardigan instead, with no belt. I curled my hair softly and applied minimal make up.

  18. You look great in that dress! I know what you mean about feeling feminine when you wear it. When I wear maxi dresses I feel like I should be in the Regency period prancing around in a field or something.

  20. wow, this dress is stunning!! I've just been trying on my maxi (after safety-pinning the super-long hem) to wear tomorrow!!
    also, thanks for your comment!! gotta say, the swimsuit I got is fab, but I was torn between that and the red or dead number with the buttons. I can't bring myself to look it up because I was so unsure and I'm worried I'll regret it!
    Let me know what you choose!!
