Bracelet - Thomas Sabo

 Every so often its inevitable that we find something that makes us feel ridiculous. I mean, falling head over heels in love. With a dress. This is the dress that has, most recently, has me feeling somewhat giddy. This is the Motel Annali dress, and I'm sure you'll agree its suitably swishy! Despite falling for it as soon as I saw it online, I was at first reluctant to buy it - Most Motel dresses are body-con and a little short for someone who is 5'9" (that'd be me), so I steered clear, convincing myself that this dress would too, be far too short and would reveal far more of my dignity than I'd be willing to reveal! 

Of course, my heart ignored all sense and bought the dress anyway, (it would've been rude not to during the 50% sale)! And actually, its a gorgeous length and I find it flattering too! I think the fact that I was expecting to have to send it back makes me love it even more!
 What I love most about this dress is how easy it is to wear in a variety of ways. Here, I kept it relatively girly for a nice meal out with Dan, but I can't wait to toughen it up with some shoe boots, studs and a leather jacket!

What gorgeous items have got you feeling silly recently?

  2. This dress is beautiful - it reminds me of a slightly pared down (more wearable!) version of Carrie Bradshaw in Paris season 6 when she had on the ballgown and gave the "I am someone who is looking for love" speech! <3
