Outfit Post: Dancing In The Summer Rain With Motel!

On Monday my *new favourite dress in the whole wide world* arrived from Motel. I wanted to wait for a sunny day to snap blog photos but my patience was wearing thin & my love for this dress was growing...So we did it in the rain!


It rained for 2 hours non-stop during this shoot but rain doesn't stop Rawr Girls posing on cue.

The dress is so pretty & feminine, I feel super girly in it. I would probably describe my style in general as 'gritty' but I do have a softer side too, as shown here!


It's the Annali Strapless Cream Bustier (£48) & I've paired it with a H&M Boater hat (kids section) & my Vivienne Westwood pearl bracelet. I love how summery it is, even in the rain.


Although it's pretty much hiding in every photo, I'm also wearing my Azendi Snowdrop necklace & some nude court shoes from New Look. It's such a simple look but I think the dress does all the talking. I'm absolutely in love with the beautiful bodice.


Are you also a fan of my new dress? I can't wait to try styling it with a leather jacket & biker boots for a grittier look ;) Motel also has an amazing sale at the moment, I ordered a gorgeous cardigan on Monday for £5! Such a bargain.

P.S I just want to say thanks to my photographer pals Liz Green & Craig Allan - you guys have mad skillz.

  13. Ahh, I've just ordered this after seeing you wearing it!
    You look stunning, I hope I look half as good wearing it.
    I don't suppose you could tell me what the fit is like around the bust area? I'm little worried it might not fit.

    Thanks, Hannah.

    1. Hey Hannah, awww that's so sweet of you to say - thanks!! :)

      This is an XS/8 and it does have quite a bit of stretch at the top! Saying that, I would say it fits more like a 6 (what I usually take in bandeau dresses) but there is room, just not too much. I hope it works for you, it's so pretty & I bet you'd look amazing in it!

  14. This looks really gorgeous! I was wondering how long it is? Also, i'm thinking of wearing this as a prom dress - honestly though do you think its too dressesd down for prom? Or with glitzy jewellery do you think it could work? x

    1. Thanks so much! Although I'm not really tall (5'7) I have pretty long legs so it's a bit above the knee on me. Personally I would wear this to a prom and glitz it up with heels and jewelz! I guess it depends on your style, I think it's gorgeous and understated, perfect for prom and not something you'd look back on and regret in years to come! ;)

  15. There is a different bustier on the website, isn't it?

    Your pictures are incredible and you're so pretty! I love the dress!

    1. It's the same dress, I'm guessing she has put something underneath the bustier but it's the same photo!

      Aw thanks :) xoxo
