What I Wore: Sweet Dahlia Birthday Dress & Cheap Frills Magic Rabbit Necklace!

We decided to venture into Nottingham yesterday for a spot of birthday shopping with a sneaky pizza hut buffet thrown in for good measure! I spotted the make up stand in Topshop and I went a little crazy, there are so many lovely things in their make up range at the moment, I could easily have bought one of almost everything! The girls working there were all super lovely & dressed amazingly. You know when you look at someone and instantly think they should have their own fashion blog? That's what I thought about everyone there & I hope they do!
Dress: Dahlia♦. Necklace: Cheap Frills♦. Trench Coat: Primark. Cardigan: H&M. 
Shoes: Primark. Bag: ASOS. Heart Ring: Scape Jewellery. Ruby Ring: Studio 59.

I decided to wear my new Dahlia skater dress, which I have now nicknamed my birthday dress & it's absolutely perfect. The cut is so flattering, it cinches in at the waist, flares out slightly over the hips and finishes just above my knee. I find that most dresses on the high street right now pretty much end just under my bum, which is far too short for me even with leggings so this is such a refreshing new addition to my wardrobe. The pretty pastel peachy pink colour makes it spring appropriate although I can see myself wearing this all year round!

My Cheap Frills Magic Rabbit necklace had its first proper outing and I am just so in love with it! I've had so many compliments on it already & even furiously scribbled down the URL for Cheap Frills for a girl who simply had to have one too, which I thought was lovely! Georgia, the beautiful lady behind Cheap Frills, has given me a discount code to share with you all. Simply enter SAILBOAT in the discount code box at the checkout to receive 20% off your order! ♥


I hope you're having a wonderful week. I have had the most perfect last few days even though the sun hasn't been shining very much at all. Thank you so much for all of your birthday wishes, they honestly meant the world & made my twenty third birthday extra special!

Have you got any wonderful weekend plans?

xoxo

P.S. Look out for a super sweet Cheap Frills necklace giveaway tomorrow afternoon!
