Sunshine and Pretty Dresses!

It reached 25 degrees today in my little part of the world & to me, that's pretty damn warm. I don't cope well in the heat, I like to complain to anyone that will listen that I'm too hot and I consume my weight in ice lollies each day. However, there is one good thing about summer, apart from the yummy ice lollies, and that's the chance to wear pretty floaty dresses everyday, yay!
♥ Revlon ColorStay.
♥ Benefit Boi-ing & Erase Paste.
♥ Modelista Blush.
♥ Alva Rose Lip gloss.

illamasqua bronx
♥ Shimmery beige colour from the Sleek Storm Palette.
♥ Illamasqua Bronx.
♥ Rimmel Sexy Curves Mascara (Ick, hate this!)

I'd like you to meet my most favourite dress in the world, I've had it for a few years now & it's barely been worn because I'm terrified that I'll drop something on it and it'll get ruined. This is my first attempt at taking a full outfit picture so you'll have to excuse my strange face!

outfit of the day
♥ Jasmine Guinness Fusion for Oli Dress.
♥ White cropped cardi - New Look.
♥ Pearl necklace.

This dress is so very 50's in its shape with a sweetheart neckline & is the type of dress that I feel suits my body shape the most as I have a tiny waist and ginormous hips (which I happen to be very proud of)! It's fitted at the top and around the waist before flowing out over the hips, it's my perfect dress! One day I will have to purchase one of everything from Dolly Dagger & Vivienne of Holloway because their items are ridiculously pretty & I need them in my life! ♥

What are your favourite things about summer?
