We should swim in a fountain, do not want to disappoint anyone.

I've been holding this dress back for a little while. You see, I've been wearing it for the last few months with black tights, a top underneath and a cardigan. And it looked NICE... but, you know when you can just feel that something isn't reaching its full potential? Like wearing a fabulous, tulle-skirted mini dress with ankle socks and trainers. I'm sure someone could pull it off, but a dress like that deserves heels and big hair. Right?

And this? This is a SUMMER dress. It needs bare skin and sunglasses. Anything else is just not letting this dress be what it's supposed to be.

I wasn't really sure about it when I first bought it - it was a total bargain in the Warehouse sale - but it's become a wardrobe staple, especially since the weather has got warmer. I know everyone always says that their hemlines go up when the weather gets warmer, but mine go down. Without the security of opaque tights, I like to show a little less leg. And this is the perfect length, the perfect fit and the perfect cut. Every time I wear it, it gets compliments (even if the print reminds me a little of carpets) and, yeah. J'adore.

I wore this to the Tabio blogger event last night and decided to boldly accessorise it with one of those trendy hairscarf things (although I ended up tucking the bow under my hair). It's actually the belt that came with the dress - I NEVER wear these, and half the time end up throwing them away - I just prefer how a normal belt looks (I also always cut waist ties off dresses). But I like utilising it in this way, it matches so well!

I had a lovely night hanging out with some of my favourite bloggers - more on that soon!

I am also finally modelling my Bertie shoes. Aren't they gorgeous? Even though the dress has no brown in it, I think they match perfectly - and despite the epic heel, they're surprisingly comfortable. LOVE. Plus they make me so tall! Well, average-sized.
