Yumi Floral Jacquard Metallic Dress and ChloBo jewellery!

Friday, 31 May 2013

Confession: I have *a bit* of a pretty dress obsession. The latest frock to join my collection is from Yumi Direct! It's perfect for SS13 and makes me think of summer fetes, freshly squeezed lemonade and ice cream. Nom.

Dress: Yumi Direct - Necklace: Topshop - Ring: Forever 21

Yumi have delicious range of dresses this season but my eyes were instantly drawn to the metallic jacquard dress (£50). It has a really nice shape and because it's quite thick, it's great to wear during our unpredictable English summer. These snaps were taken by the harbourside where a passerby stopped me to compliment my dress and then asked if I was off to a wedding...I just laughed and thanked her but now I come to think about it, it is the ideal dress to wear to a wedding! Haha.

Yumi Pink Dress

I love wearing pastel shades and thankfully they seem to compliment my pasty skin tone. The only downside with this dress is that it's dry clean only...Although I don't recommend it (a-hem) I did manage to hand wash mine with a posh delicate hand wash from M&S and it still looks as good as new.

P.S I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted for us in the Company Style Blogger Awards! We went to the awards party on Wednesday night and had so much fun. We didn't win but we're honoured to have been shortlisted and this was all thanks to you guys. We love y'all *almost* as much as we love Robert Pattinson. Which is A LOT.

  19. The colour suits your lovely skin tone so much! I love it :) I sneakily always put my delicates/dry clean only through a "hand wash" in the washing machine haha, I'm sure one day something bad will happen but until then it's a cheaper and easier alternative! Glad you had a fab time at the awards xx

  20. Aaw, you look gorgeous Tara! The dress is very pretty too <3 I so wanted you guys to win the award but I hope you had an amazing night anyway! xxx

  21. Tara this dress looks amazing on you! I'm such a fan of this peachy/nude kind of colour too, I think it's really flattering on us pasty girls & the pattern is so pretty. I never dry clean anything either, I always just chuck them in the bath & hand wash!
    PS: I'm so sad you guys (or anyone else I voted for!) didn't win! You were robbed!

  22. You own that dress! Looking super pretty and cute as always! X

  23. That dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you!
    I'm actually wearing this dress to a wedding (it's a turquoise one though)!
    So I was wondering, bearing in mind that it's a beach wedding, what shoes do you suggest wearing with it?
    Thank you! :)
