Spirited away

I woke up this morning to most the beautiful rays of sunshine. I almost forgot what it felt like to have sunshine, until I experienced that lovely feeling of when you lie in bed and get woken up by the golden rays peeping through the blinds. I just hoped and prayed it would stay out long enough for me to get some shots and low and behold it did. I had been pining for this beautiful dress from Ever Ours since I saw it on their Instagram pages ages ago. At only £25 this dress is an absolute bargain and as if that wasn't great enough it's even more lovely on.

I simply adore embroidery on clothing and these beautiful red roses on the bodice are a cute addition.
The delicate floaty waterfall-cut chiffon skirt was blowing away in the wind and it felt like a dream just being in the sunlight once again. I loved shooting this outfit with Jonathan, even when I managed to catch my nude tights and ripped them all the way down! Thank goodness at least it wasn't the dress!). Ever the professional though I quickly whipped them off and soldiered on!

Also keeping me company in the field today was my new hat from ASOS. My old fedora- may he rest in peace- has seen better days. It was proving a little too small and battered and with the ribbon constantly moving and coming away it was time for a new one. I'd had my eye on this new one for ages and treated myself to it as a pay day treat; I don't know why I didn't get it sooner as it's simply perfect!

  7. I'm not really a fan of embroidered items but this dress is such a dream! I should have got my butt dressed and popped out today to enjoy the sun but it's just too cold when the skies are clear.


  8. I love the hat. I have on myself, but I never have the balls to actually wear it. Everyone always comments on it and I get all embarrassed, nice to grow a pair!

    Either way, you look great. :) x

  20. Ha- I found your blog via Soubrette Brunette's where she is talking about an embroidered dress too.

    I love this entire outfit and photo shoot. That dress is so lovely, especially the roses, but to me what makes it is the way the entire look goes together with itself and with the backdrop to create a bohemian spring mood.

  21. These photos are STUNNING! Love the look, makes me long for sunshine (so much snow here)
    Love your blog! New follower via bloglovin!
