The Dahlia dress...

Longtime readers will know how much I love Seasalt, I discovered the brand when my friend Matilda donated a lovely stripy jumper to me and have managed to add quite a few pieces to my wardrobe since. I spotted this gorgeous coral tea dress in the sale and fell in love. I really love the colour and texture and it feels really elegant, something that can be lacking in my wardrobe of bright colours and bold prints! Paired with my brushed out bob, this felt quite 1930s, an era I seem to be drawing more and more inspiration from recently! Midis have always been a tricky length on me but I have quite a few in my wardrobe now, maybe I need to accept that I am actually a fan...

Dress: Seasalt, shoes: Marks & Spencer
I have never been very good at liquid eyeliner but I fancied a feline flick so had to rummage through my make-up bag trolley. I got this Eyeko skinny liquid eyeliner free with a magazine a while back and it is pretty good although I still haven't managed to master the nib properly yet. This lipstick is the amazing Bewitching Coral by Max Factor and it matched the dress perfectly. I really love the cute collar on this dress, it makes it feel much smarter and I'm looking forward to layering it up with some cosy jumpers come Autumn...


A better look at that nipped in waist and gorgeous textured cotton! 


You know how much I love a swooshy skirt and this one has a lot of material. The fact it has pockets just makes it even better in my opinion! I just wish I had some daintier shoes to pair with it although I suppose it does stop it feeling too costume-y. 



Are you a fan of 1930s style dresses?

Retro dresses are the best. This one has such a Notebook feel to it. The colour is so good.

Such a lovely style, and I love the nipped in waist.

The thirties, but also the fifties, which is one of my absolute favourites and this dress looks just fabulous on you.

This is such a gorgeous shape on you! I love the defined waist shape and the little tucks in the skirt.
