Midsummer Fairytales

Dress*: Chi Chi
Earrings: Topshop

I've been meaning to post about this beautiful Chi Chi dress for absolutely ages now. It's a stunning embroidered number that reminds me of fairies and midsummer - it has a really ethereal feel to it. I feel a little bit like a fairy wearing it in all honesty, and I think I prefer going barefoot in it than wearing heels (although I do have a pair that would go perfectly with it). I paired it with my amazing flamingo earrings from Topshop that I got in the sale a while ago, and felt that was all it needed - the dress does all the talking here. The detailing on it is stunning and I also think it will see me through the winter really well too, with a nice pair of black tights. 

Today I celebrated my 23rd birthday! I'm not entirely sure how I feel about being 23; it feels as though time is moving too quickly and I feel like I have so much I want to achieve. Getting older is scary - I still feel very much like a little girl and the prospect of having to stand on my own two feet and be a grown up scares me so much! Does anyone else feel like this?!

I'm going to be filming a video on the presents I got as well as doing a little post on them, so expect to see that soon. I'm also currently editing a Primark haul that I'm hoping to get up asap. If you haven't subscribed to me on YouTube yet, check out my videos here

I hope everyone had a lovely Bank Holiday and you are all enjoying the last few days of summer!

  9. I hope you had a lovely birthday yesterday! :) This dress is so beautiful and different from any other dresses I have seen before. I completely agree about being scared of the prospect of growing up, I want to be like Peter Pan! xx
