Gothic Summer Vibes

It's getting to that time of year where I am reminded that I love a good old maxi dress. I mean don't get me wrong, leggings and a dress are fantastic and I will always be a fan but there is something about a flowy maxi dress that makes me feel great. When it comes to summer, I love being able to throw on a dress with a pair of flip flops and just leave the house.

                                       

The lovely people at Simply Be sent me this dress earlier this week and I really love it! I wore it out to lunch the other day and sat in the sunshine and it was perfect. It's elasticated under the bust which means that it fits really nice - the skirt is flowy as well which is really nice. It is super long on me however I am only 5'2, so it could work well on someone taller too!

I love the lace affect around the shoulders and think this makes it so much nicer than just a plain black maxi dress. I don't actually own many plain clothes as I am much more a fan of colour but I like this, because the lace adds a little dimension to it.



Simply Be were kind enough to send this so I could try it for size, as I have had nightmares with their sizing coming up small. I have to say that this could not have fit better and I really hope it reflects in the rest of the seasons items!

What do you think you'll be wearing this summer?

It's A Nice Day For A Kent Wedding!

Following on from last weeks Black and Bling party I attended the wedding of two of my lovely friends yesterday. I can't even begin to tell you the amazing thought that Tom and Toria put into their wedding and all of the little personal touches they thought out - which really helped to make sure that everyone had a great day!

I don't want to talk too much about the little touches because I am bridesmaid in October (YAY!) and want to borrow a few ideas for my friends wedding (I have checked with the Bride from yesterday)... I just haven't checked with Gemma, the October bride yet - but it will be fine!! I hope.... Hi Gem :)


Anyway... For the wedding I decided to wear an orange maxi dress with I bought a few months ago and only worn once - for a charity ball.


I have tried to find the dress on the Simply Be website to give you more details but it doesn't seem to be there anymore. What I can tell you is that it has a tighter, thicker orange material underneath and then the orange and purple layer over the top is much thinner and free-flowing. I really love the pattern of this dress and its really comfortable to wear all day!




I am a bridesmaid for my friend in October and the hen party is next weekend - looking out for more outfit updates then!

Have you been to any weddings this year? What did you wear?
