chasing the sun

Dress* – Glamorous

Necklace – Spanish market

Lipstick – Revlon ‘Love that Red’

I think this dress is impossibly pretty! The colour, the pleats, the waterfall frills and dipped hem finish make it an absolute favourite of mine and is perfect dressed up with heels or worn simply with a halo of flowers, barefoot in a field of daisies! If only the weather would allow. I feel like we are chasing the sun at the moment.

The eagle-eyed amongst you may have noticed that I have dip-dyed my hair again, but this time I went for candy floss pink. I was a bit disappointed with how it came out – no way near as bright and obvious as the lilac. I plan to do a whole review of the Crazy Color range I’ve used but if you know of any other good semi-permanent dyes, then do let me know.

I hope you are all fine and dandy and having good weeks. I found out yesterday that Pearls & Poodles has been shortlisted in the Cosmopolitan Blog Awards and needless to say, I was totally thrilled. I didn’t even ask anyone to nominate me so if you did, thank you so so much and if you do wish to vote for me to win then it would mean the world. I am in the 4th category – Established Beauty Blog. πŸ™‚
