One Two Chi Chi Chi

If you are looking for a deliciously fluffy, full skirted dress, stop by Chi Chi London for the prettiest, flounciest ones. It’s a pastel and floral frock shock but regardless of your day to day style, tell me you don’t want to have a good twirl and bounce in something so fun. I paired my lovely mint dress with some strappy heels but if you were going to a themed fifties party or garden day, some little sneakers would be just brill too!

If you’re interested in this dress, its made of a lovely thick material but something that you will definitely need to have steamed so it floats nicely. I would also recommend looking in the petite section if you were after a dress that isn’t so long. Available on their own site with free worldwide delivery and also Asos!

Paint Me Like .. By Your French Door

masterpiece3

Originally, you guys weren’t going to get anything from me this week but then two weeks of straight up studying and the occasional episode of Friends had me a little burnt out so I thought I would put this up after my first exam of the period. 1 down,  4 to go! I L O V E this top because its made of my favourite fabric in the world and the silhouette and blush colour is just wonderful. Paired with some tailored pants, its also incredibly comfortable. Top it off with a felt hat, pointy flats and a watch and my grey, pink and black palette is complete. You can see how I styled this palette in Autumn Blooms if you’re looking for some autumnal inspiration.

Since we’re on the topic of all things French … it would be incredibly ignorant of me to ignore what a terribly tragic day it is. My heart goes out to everyone affected. ❤

A Little Tulle Late

action4I have a really strange fascination with tulle and big poofy skirts like this. The strange part of this fascination is that it didn’t start when I was a young un and watching Angelina Ballerina … it started when I was about 14! What I like best about this tulle skirt is that its layered instead of just flouncing out at one length. This means that it is a lot of fun to twirl in to make for some great action shots.

I know I’ve been referring to it as a skirt but I’ll let you in a sneaky secret: the tulle skirt is actually my prom dress from year 10! I’m happy to say its not something i would cringe at all these years later but it makes me sad that I never wear it which is why I popped it on, Christmas day. Then I decided to dress it down with a plaid shirt cinched at the waist, popped at the collar and rolled at the arms so I could give my outfit some silhouette. To finish off the ballet vibes, I went with a big poof on my head and some bow heels that shouldn’t be leaped around in!
