Palm Tree Pretties

Monday 21 July 2014

I love a good maxi dress in the summer, who doesn't really? They are comfy and can be great for smart casual events as they are easily dressed up, or just for dossing about in! I wore it to go see Hi-On Maiden, the official Iron Maiden tribute band at Yardbirds, as you do. Hi-On Maiden were totally amazing, the singer had Bruce's vocals nailed on, I would definitely recommend seeing them if you get the chance.

Stu and I popped into town the other day to get him some new shoes (I maybe ended up with some too) and a cheeky pop into New Look was a must. And boy was I so glad I did! I spotted this amazing palm tree maxi dress reduced to £10, and just had to have it! I had seen it listed on the website last week at £17.99, I ummed and aaahed and decided not to order it as I tend to be too tall for maxi dresses, but as it happened when I tried this on in store it was perfect. It has been removed from the website since I last had a look but it may be available in your store locally.

I mean seriously, how adorable is that print?!! I think it is now my favourite maxi dress. The handbag is my usual day to day one, I picked it up in TK Maxx on sale because one of the poppers on it was broken. I always get comments on it, it glows under UV light too! Now for the details.

Sugar & Vice Palm Tree Necklace £13

This necklace is also UV! So cute. I got this from another fan of Sugar & Vice who mentioned she was clearing out some of her collection so I grabbed a few bits, thank you! There are also matching earrings that are adorable, Sugar & Vice Palm Tree Earrings £14.

I'm wearing Sugarpill eyeshadow, both from the Heart Break Eye Palette, and Barry M Cor Balmy! in Currant Bun. I love this for the summer, lipstick can feel a little heavy duty in the heat but this is great.

I've been experimenting lately with trying to wear my hair pinned up. Because of my chronic headaches it is a real struggle to wear it up, bobbles are totally out, but I can get away with kirby grips for short lengths of time. I figured the club would be hot and full of people, I was right, and very glad I wore my hair up! I pinned it up in two messy buns with my very-long-not-really-a-fringe-anymore-fringe left out.

For a bonus, a soppy couple photo of us at Yardies. I do love that beardy face.

Much love,
