Monochrome Print Dress

May 6 2013

H&M Dress / PRIMARK Belt / NEW LOOK Sandals / ZARA Bag / H&M Earrings &Bracelet / MAC Ruby Woo

Hello my lovely blogger friends, it’s been a while! From losing my domain, then going on holiday, then finally gaining it back, you can be sure that I’m happy that I’m now fully settled and back posting as normal! 

I wanted to share this very beautiful dress I bought on a whim from H&M last week. Love that it’s a maxi, as I adore them! Opted for simple accessories today, but I can also imagine it with a gorgeous floppy hat and heels, or a straw hat for a day at the beach!

I also made a short video for it on YouTube so be sure to check it out!

Hope you’re all well!

*Thanks to my amazing brother Alan for shooting it! :)*

    Welcome back Shirley, I was beginning to think you’ve left the blogging world. Glad you got your domain back, how did you lose it in the first place? I can certainly see that dress with the hat and wedges.
