I recently turned 25, and even though I had a lot of fears about this milestone in my life, there was no way I wasn’t going to celebrate it anyway! I love birthdays, they are nature’s way of telling us to eat more cake, which I of course love, and that is exactly what I did! On the day I had a lovely high tea at Belle’s Patisserie, where we were treated to divine little treats and drinks, but because I was so busy running around, I didn’t get to shoot my outfit that I wore on the day! I have a bit of a tradition of always picking out a new dress for every birthday and I thought this dress was too pretty not to share, so here it is!
I got this gorgeous coral lace dress from Superbalist, the online shopping website that is taking South Africa by storm! I am not a huge fan of online shopping, and always worry that the item will not look anything like it did in the picture, but this New Look dress arrived looking exactly like the picture, and it is of great quality. Lace pattern, off-the-shoulder detail and sweetheart neckline- what more could a girl want? The delivery from Superbalist was seamless, and the dress took just 2 days to arrive- so I had it in time for my birthday tea!
Because I left the neck of the dress quite empty, I felt like I needed to compensate for it with some gorgeous, big earrings. These pastel beauties fitted in with the background so beautifully, and the floral clutch from Forever New was a pretty addition to the outfit. I wore my nude ALDO heels, and I’ll say it again- every girl needs a pair of shoes like these in her life!
I also think that this dress would look perfect at a garden-type wedding, and seeing as it’s the wedding season, this is a great option! Check out this dress over here, and here are a few pics of my special day that I managed to snap.
25,lets do this!
