25th Birthday Trip To Bruges

For my 25th Birthday (6th April 2018), my best friend Hannah and I went to Bruges in Belgium to celebrate. Last year, we went to Paris. This might just be an annual thing!

Bruges is a beautiful city. It’s exactly what I look for in a holiday. The peaceful, cobbled streets surrounded by medieval buildings and dreamy canals; it is certainly like a fairy tale town as people often describe it.

We stayed for three nights in a beautiful hotel (pictured below).

Even though the weather there is very much like England, it’s what I love. I don’t need sunshine and beaches. Give me a quiet city with glorious views and I will be happy.

This is me

These are some photos of myself, reflecting that life can be amazing and peaceful. I have always described myself as horrible, fat and disgusting. But people describe me as gentle, funny, strong and endearing and maybe I am. Maybe I need to believe that. Photography can tell a story, and these photos reflect what I really am and what I’ve been through.

How I Style: Smock Dresses

Image

Smock dresses are something I have been really loving recently and sometimes it can be very difficult to style them. I style them in a paticular way. The one above is a checkered smock dress from Miss Selfridge.

I like pairing a smock dress with either tights, leggings or just a simple black peg leg trousers.

A nice wedged mary jane shoes look incredible with a smock dress. I recently purchased the one above from Barratts. You can wear white tights which will look great with the mary janes or just a simple black or white socks.

Floral crowns look great on when you pair it with the right outfit. Pairing a floral crown with a smock dress will add a very cute look to the whole outfit. I absolutely love floral crowns. If you add a floral crown, you really do not need any jewellery to be honest. The floral crown, I feel is already a big statement and any other accessories will just look too much.

And finally, to complete the look, I added a pretty clutch bag which just looks amazing with the smock dress. I do try to colour match most things. In this particular look, it is quite pinky.

This is a very suitable outfit for a nice summers day, however I would wear it all year round.
