Here in the UK, the sun finally decided to make an appearance! We haven't had much of a Spring, but all of a sudden it feels like Summer. I'm sure this weather won't last very long, so I thought I'd make the most of it! We had a lovely day out in Dorchester where I spent entirely too much money on Summery new cosmetics (and some adorable glue-on face gems from New Look for our up-coming Secret Cinema outing!) and thoroughly embraced the new, if fleeting sunshine!
My Mum bought me this dress for Christmas and this is the first chance I've had to wear it! I absolutely adore Lindy Bop's style of dress and their prints. They have fast become my favourite brand for pretty, vintage style dresses. This one is called 'Hot Rod' in their 'Daria' style. I love the scalloped neckline, and I think it's a really flattering fit. Sometimes I'm a little wary of the skirt flaring out a little too much in swing dresses (especially as I'm a short lady with larger hips), but this one fell with just enough 'flounce' to be shapely without looking too frumpy. The fabric also has a little bit of stretch too, which is very welcome and forgiving!
I partnered the dress with a dusty pink belt, to match my hair, accessories and shoes. The dress originally came with a thin black belt, but I think pink was just perfectly suiting to the sunshine!
The shoes are from Joe Browns' amazing shoe collection - and they are unbelievably comfortable! I'm always on a personal quest to find comfortable, cute kitten heels, and finding them in cute colours in the UK is a complete nightmare (sadly, we don't have easy access to B.A.I.T Footwear over here!) Discovering Joe Browns has been a dream come true - I mean look at these! You can get lots of pretty colours and styles and I can walk in them for hours, even without tights or socks. What's not to love?
I'm Selena, an artist, blogger and gamer - but maybe not always in that order! Dream Somehow is a blog dedicated to travel, art, geeky adventures, gaming, life in the South West of England, vintage style and a little bit of Disney Dreaming! If you'd like to know a bit more about me, click here!
