Good Morning & Happy Friday!

It’s a very happy Friday for me as I’m off to Paris for the weekend. Can’t wait to catch up with my dear friend.

Before I leave I thought I’d share an outfit I wore last weekend to celebrate the departure of another friend who is off travelling round the world. I’m so happy for her and can’t wait to keep up with her journey on Instagram although I think the green eye will definitely set in especially as we move through winter while she is living the dream exploring the world.

Anyway on to the outfit. I had an outfit planned for the party for a while – I always like to be prepared. Unfortunately it didn’t quite come together as I needed an underskirt as the tulle skirt I planned to wear was quite transparent and I failed to find an underskirt that was suitable and not grandma like. During my daily search for another option, I came across this dress on ASOS and I immediately knew it was the one. White lace is my absolute favourite and I’m always drawn to it regardless of the occasion. The website pictures led me to believe the dress was all white however when it arrived I noticed the lilac undertones which I really liked. It’s just something a bit different for me as I always stick to white, grey, black or navy so some pastel lilac is a subtle but nice change.

The dress reminded me of the Self Portrait styles which I absolutely adore. I’ve not had any particularly special occasions which would honour the purchase of such a beautiful dress but I’m sure the time will come. Until then, this one is a lovely alternative at a much more affordable price and suitable for a variety of occasions.
