MORE THAN A BLANK CANVAS.


dress: mink pink
jacket: dotti
boots: myer
necklace: lovisa

I'm sorry that my posts have been short and sharp recently, I do promise that after my exams I'll sit down for a little longer and write something decent. 

I fell in love with this Mink Pink dress the minute that I saw it, and decided then and there I had to have it. I love everything about it - the relaxed fit, the print, and the length. I'd be happy to live in this dress and wear nothing else this summer. I grunged it up a little today with my military boots and leather jacket for my exam as the weather was a bit odd and chilly this morning. I wouldn't normally have added a necklace to a busy printed dress like this - I'm a firm believer in the more is less rule of thumb - but I threw it on this morning and rushed out of the house without really looking at myself in the mirror. I've decided to throw my less is more rule out of the window and embrace a more is more vibe now!

  2. I really like this dress and I think you've made a bold choice throwing out the 'less is more' rule, because that necklace goes great with the dress. Where did you get your watch from? xx
