Hurray the flowers are in bloom and I can finally spend my days in dresses, skirts and more importantly floral prints! I went to the UK Blog Awards 2015 the other week as I’d been shortlisted
as Best Lifestyle Blog. I unfortunately didn’t win but I did get to
wear the dress I’d been dying to showcase! I hadn’t had time to get any
style snaps on the day so Nick and I decided to head out for a glass of
wine the other day, and whilst it was beautiful outside we took a stroll
through my local park.
You will probably notice this is the first style post I’ve done in quite a while… if you had a read of my wedding dress meltdown post you’ll understand that I’ve really lost my image confidence so this is a big step for me. I still have a lot of weight to lose but I’m determined to get back to where I was.
Anyway enough of the fluffy stuff, I fell in love with this dress and just had to share it. I had my hair done by the Hob Salon team in Camden and figured as my hair was feeling amazing I thought sod it… let’s show my readers! I’d already featured this dress in my wedding guest style post and think it could work for that occassion and numerous summer events.
|Dress – Chi Chi Alyssa Dress*£57.99, Shoes – F&F Black Suedette Sandals £16.00, Clutch – New Look Pale Blue Push Lock Clutch £12.99, Necklace – Accessorize Lily Flower Collar £14.00|
I simply added plain black strappy sandals because I wanted the dress to do the talking. I wore this Chi Chi number at the blog awards with my new chunky Next gold platforms and would do again if I was wearing this for a night out with the girls perhaps. I really like the pale blue clutch though and thought it was a bargain for only £12.99.
What do you reckon? Floral dresses still a yay or are they a nay?
