Dress: Chicwish. Necklace: Topshop. Flower headband: New Look.
Last week my friends and I attended our university's annual Summer Ball. This of course required a new dress! Having watched one of Marziapie's recent videos in which she featured a lovely bag from Chicwish, I decided to check the site out for myself and discovered they had a flash sale! Yes! For this reason I managed to get this lovely white swing dress for a much cheaper price than it originally was! Delivery took a little while. Fortunately the dress arrived in half the time they said it may take which was a nice surprise! The design is gorgeous; I think the crochet detailing on the top is so pretty and perfect for summer. I chose to go for an outfit with a very summery feel, so I paired the dress with these sandals from Boohoo which I absolutely love.
I had hoped that the weather might have reflected my outfit choice and give us a lovely balmy sunny evening. Naturally it was quite the opposite. On our walk to the ball we were treated to not only a downpour but thunder and lightning too! I had spent the whole day with my hair up in Miley Cyrus-esque buns to get those waves and of course by the time we arrived my hair was dripping wet (this is what happens when you vito the taxi idea because you are being tight with your money - oh the perks of being a student...)
Did you go to any summery events this month or do you plan to? If so what did/will you wear? :)
