into the white






dress: dorothy perkins | shoes: missguided | necklace: this charming girl

This, along with a bit more make up and some hair styling, is what I wore out to celebrate a friends birthday on Saturday night. I bought the dress over a month ago and have been dying to wear it since. It's so floaty and comfortable to wear, and the flower detailing around the waist gives it a hint of vintage styling. Such a bargain at £20... and that was it full price! Thankfully I did apply a bit of fake tan on Saturday so I didn't look quite as white - although I did get asked if I'd "seen a ghost".

The shoes are the new love of my life. After seeing them featured in one of Michelle's posts I had to buy them! They are sky high and make me over 6ft tall but I lasted the whole night in them and it honestly felt like I was wearing flat shoes... This comes from the girl who has had more accidents trying to walk in heels/wedges than she can remember!

  18. Ohhhh my god those shoes are actually perfect. I think the reason you can walk so easily in them is because although the heel is high, so's the platform, so it's not such a difference between where your toes are and where you heel is, if that makes any sense...
    Regardless, I also have terrible trouble with heels but I am definitely going to try and get some of these!
