Outfit: Pool Party

Hi darlings! I had a really great time celebrating my birthday last night and probably a few too many tequila shots - naturally I've been a vegetable on the couch all day, but since thinking is no longer so painful I've put a bit of a post together. This lovely number is something I wore when Tony's sister hosted a bit of a pool party a few weeks ago. There aren't any pictures of the party really, as Tony and I were just being "responsible adults" looking after all of the younger ones while they all did their thing!
Dress: 579

I wouldn't normally choose something with such a bold, crazy print and I usually shy away from strapless dresses too, but this one is great. It zips up at the back, which is always a no-no for me since I'm so top heavy - but I got this one in a large (whilst praying that wouldn't make the waist too loose) and it fit perfectly! I also love the pleat detail on the skirt of the dress, it makes it all flowy and I feel like a ballerina when I spin around it it!

What do you think? ♥

    1. Thanks hun, I definitely had a good day and a really great evening - just wish I hadn't overdone it with the drinks!

      I really surprised myself with this dress, busy patterns usually have me walking in the opposite direction pretty sharpish! :D x
