Electric blue...

A dress this pretty was almost guaranteed to find it's way into my wardrobe. I loved it at full price and then it was reduced down to about £10 and somehow managed to land on my shopping basket. Exmouth really was the holiday of dresses ( I think I picked up about 5 when I was there) and this has to be one of the prettiest. Electric blue is a colour that never fails to cheer me up and several people commented on how pretty the dress was, it doesn't get much better than that for a feel-good outfit! 

Dress: Dorothy Perkins, shoes: Dorothy Perkins, bag: vintage from the Clothes Show
It was worn for a day of sightseeing and tea-shopping in Topsham and was perfect for adding a little colour to a grey and gloomy day...


The detailing is absolutely fantastic although I keep bending the sequins with the strap of my bag, I'm hoping it won't cause too much personal damage though!


This was just huge and I'm not sure what it was used for, it is obviously something to do with the sea as it was right by the harbour but I can't work it out... any ideas? 


The harbour also made the perfect backdrop for a few more silly poses although I did get some funny looks from the bus driver trying to reverse behind me, he must have thought I was crazy! Apologies for the fluffy hair, it was newly washed and sea-breezes were playing havoc with it...


What colour is an instant mood lifter? What's your favourite dress?

You look gorgeous in the dress. It's a lovely dress but sadly it would come up too short for my liking on me :( xx

Oooh very pretty. My mood lifter in the summer is that pale/nude pink colour that I seem to live in, and in the winter it has to be dark forest type green.

Love your electric blue dress, I'm really into bright colours at the moment, it's a shame the sun isn't shining often enough to wear them. I bought a bright orange maxi skirt in the sale a couple of weeks ago. I'm going to find a way to work it into my A/W wardrobe to brighten my days.

That's a really pretty dress and it looks gorgeous on you. I'm trying to wear more bright colours at the moment, they do always lift my mood but it's so easy to just wear lots of black!

Suits you so much!!! I'm loving olives and browns at the moment - not strictly uplifting, but it makes me feel like a tanned greek godess! Although I have yet to find a nice dress which fits well in earthy tones :( wahhhhh

Adorable dress m'dear, that colour really suits you!
I'd have to say mustard or turquoise are my fave mood enhancing colours :)
