Who says you cant wear a floor length cocktail gown as everyday wear, well I guess it all depends on the design and fabric really but ive had this gorgeous dress in my wardrobe for awhile I wore it once to a ball and haven’t really worn it since..i cant understand how we shell out so much money for a dress and never end up wearing it again..so today I felt like a bit of a bohemian princess the fabric is floaty and gorgeous with the casual denim jacket.. I did roll down the top of the dress to make it into a bit more of a casual design though (plus it was a little more comfortable)

If I look a bit bewildered in the pics its because I woke up at the crack of dawn to get them I usually get home (run around trying to catch the light before it fades) and take a few snaps then but ive been finding I never usually have any time to do anything else in the evening sooo, heres to a new shedual..please excuse the puffy eyes and sleep induced hair mop haha

I have been obsessed with these wooden platforms lately, I have no idea why I think it might be the shoes of choice for my Autumn outfits I guess!! I have been on the scout for knee high flat suede boots I know they are a little hard to keep in good condition but I have found the best protecting spray so pretty much all my suede shoes don’t get ruined!!! I cant for the life of me remember what its called…but will find out!!

So the Easter detox has started..im officially at war with chocolate..ohh especially crunchy chocolate its so darn incredible..

Wearing vintage brown belt, brown leather platforms, vintage satchel, green and brown pattern cocktail dress.
