How To Style A Summery Smock Dress
Haven't done an outfit post in absolutely ages, so I thought I'd make it this a good one! I went to the beach at the weekend and initially reached out for denim shorts and a vest top. Like the rest of the nation, I basically wanted to wear as little clothing as possible!
However, I can't wear my Topshop denim shorts without tights because it shows far too much. Put it this way, my underwear are bigger than the shorts themselves (yeah, they are short shorts!).
I remembered that I had this blue paisley smock dress so I put that on, wore my sandals and away we went! The sandals I wore were these ones from River Island as seen in this post from last year, which have lasted a very long time but the studs have started to fall off!
My necklace is from Nikki Lissoni and I've noticed that a lot of you are a fan of rose gold jewellery and accessories. This is the first rose gold piece of jewellery I own and needless to say, I instantly fell in love with it. I met the Nikki Lissoni UK team at while back, and they showed me their pendants which are interchangeable.
As I have mentioned before, I've had my hair in a topknot since I got it cut in Easter. Since my sister's wedding when the stylist put my hair in a lovely beehive, I have wanted to learn to do up-do hairstyles myself.
I loved the beehive style I got done on my sister's big day that I didn't want to un-do at the end of the night! My hair is so thick that when the hair stylist started to backcomb it, the comb actually snapped (oops!)
Anyway, my up-do's are not as good as the day of my sister's wedding, but thanks to vloggers and bloggers, I've been able to re-create the hairstyle from when I was a bridesmaid!
I was pretty determined to give it a go because the stylist made it look easy! When I tried hairdo's before, I used to get frustrated but I've started off doing a simple french twist and here's the lovely lady who's tutorial I used.
Very exciting news came through a few weeks ago. I'm going to Germany at the end of the week, to visit Stylight.
I'm sure I'll tell you all about it next week but all I can say now is how nervous I am. I have never travelled to another country on my own before and I'm flying from Manchester which it about 3 hours drive away. Instead of driving, I will be getting the train to the airport.
I'm excited but I am extremely nervous.However, this was an opportunity I couldn't say no to! Everything always turns out good in the end, I'm sure I'll have a fantastic time.
I just have to stop letting my imagination and travel anxiety get the best of me!
