DRESS: c/o Dahlia (also available as a top) SHOES: c/o Boden SUNGLASSES ASOS
Dahlia is a brand I have loved for years now - they were one of the first brands I ever worked with because of Mermaidens (!) and each season I fall in love with their selections! This dress absolutely blew me away - the 60s is one of my very favorite decades for fashion, and the loose silhouette on this number looks absolutely stunning on - not to mention the lacey overlay, bell sleeves, and tie up ribbon details on the back...! Be still my heart.

This dress is just about to sell out (so be quick if you need it!), but it is available as a top and they have a several other darling pieces with sheer, lace, and ribbon elements in their shop! Another favorite? This 70s, high necked beauty!

I wanted the dress to shine, so I paired it simply with retro style cat eye sunglasses and these beautiful heels from Boden, who have some of the cutest shoes I've ever seen!

  14. I seriously LOVE your hair so much! <3 I'd wanna colour my hair like that but I don't think it'll look good :/ I love that dress too oh my

  15. I love the dress! The ties in the back are super presh. But I think your blog would be more reader-friendly if you either post less pictures of the same outfit or find a way to compress posts so we can click through a link to see the rest. It would make scrolling a better experience imo.

  16. Gorgeous!! That dress is simply divine :) Love this entire look.
