Little white dress...

This may be the very last post I have of my old hair before I went and got it all chopped off! This weekend it was all go chez Fallon, I had 3 inches chopped off the bottom of my hair, had a near death experience at the pub at lunchtime and ate my body weight in ice-cream (never a bad way to spend a weekend!) It was a roasting 30 degrees (!) here over the weekend and a maxi dress was the only thing I could bear to wear. You know I can't resist a lace dress and this is perfect for the summer. This dress from Monki is whisper thin (luckily it is fully lined!) and the length makes it perfect for wafting around in. A white lace maxi could have been quite bridal but hopefully the accessories gave it more of an edge!

Dress: Monki, belt: Oasis, sandals: Primark
When I was getting dressed, I realised that I have had this belt for 6 years which may make it the oldest thing in my wardrobe. It is pretty ostentatious for a belt and I have considered getting rid of it quite a few times over the years but there's something about the turquoise buckle that is impossible to resist, I just need to work out what else I can wear it with now so it can justify staying... 


My hair had got pretty long and I was so nervous about chopping it all off but I couldn't be happier with the result- hopefully I will have an outfit post to show it off properly soon. 


Simple sandals have been my saviours in this mini heatwave and despite making me feel like Jesus (especially paired with the white robe!) these sandals are ideal for when I want something slightly less harsh than black. Tan brown is definitely my summer colour!


How would you make a white maxi dress seem less bridal?

I love this dress on you, I always shy away from pale creams and white. Partly as I'm super messy and would probably ruin them, also because I'm worried about looking too bridal.

I would spill tea on this straight away! I would wear this with one of those kimono jackets for a boho look x

Your new hair looks beautiful & really suits you, I can't wait to see it properly in a post! :) This dress is lovely on you too, perfect styling with the tan accessories, not bridal at all!

Really like those sandals. I'm not usually one for them, but these are beautifully simple

That dress is gorgeous, I love lace too and that belt works really well with it. Your new hair looks lovely, sometimes it makes the world of difference having a good length chopped off! xxx

The dress is lovely. I think the tan accessories look great and are definitely a good way to avoid the bridal look.
