this is only the beginning

Scallop dress: TFNC London
Earrings/bracelet: Accessorize
Ring: Thomas Sabo

Last night I went out with Rob and le fam for a rather biblical last supper to bid farewell to my little brother. He is moving to uni tomorrow; off to the London School of Economics to study Philosophy. I will miss him dreadfully but I know he will have an absolute ball and he is only a quick train journey away so I can visit him lots.
For the occasion I wore this gorgeous dress from TFNC London. They asked me if I wanted to chose a piece to feature and l fell in love with this dress instantly. I thought it was very me! I just love the 20’s inspired scallops and the beading detail. I chose it in small which fitted me perfectly. I did actually receive this just before I went on holiday but I thought I would save it for when I returned so I could flaunt a natural tan with it. I simply wore this dress with a black boyfriend blazer and nude heels.

I have been back from my holiday for 6 days now and I am well and truly back into the daily drudge again and cocktails on the beach is just but a distant memory. Today however sees the start of the hockey season again. I am really excited to get back into it as Saturdays have been a bit dull without my weekly hockey matches; triumphs, injuries and all. Hoping to start the season with a good win!
What are you up to this weekend?

    Hey babe!
    You look stunning with that dress, it suits you marvellously! I love light shades on you. I know that feeling of post-vacational melancholy, it has been already 3 months since I came back from the Canary Islands and I feel some more holidays are much needed again.
    I read you were a bit ill on your holidays and I hope you are fully recovered now.
    XOXO and happy hockey season,

    You look gorgeous! That dress is so lovely, it suits you so well. I just love the beading on the scalloped edges, so chic.
    I hate getting back to the daily grudge after a holiday (or an extra long weekend)!

    Oh Milly! I know you're beauitful, I read your blog regularly and having met you, I know it's true- but seeing this post, you've just blown my little socks off! You're just stunning, the hair & the dress are beautiful.
    Right choice to pick that for sure, the style is amazing, and I love how simple but effective it is.

    Hope your brother gets on well at Uni, I'm sure when he comes back for breaks it will be like he's never been away & 3 years goes surprisingly quickly

    What is the sizing like for TFNC clothing? I've always wanted to buy their dresses but I'm quite petite so I'm never sure if they're small-medium will fit xx

  27. 26th September 2011 / 8:02 pm

    You look beautiful, absolutely jaw dropping!
