Sorry for the delay guys. It’s almost a month since my last post. It may be this way for a while because I have to use my hubby’s laptop for the time being, so I’ll try to steal it as often as I can.
At least I managed to get hold of it to give you today’s style post. This is the first of four birthday-related posts – two about what I wore and two about food (you’ll understand) , so stay tuned for those.
I turned 27 on June 24, a Sunday. I wasn’t expecting to do anything that day because I would be spending most of it in church. However, my hubby surprised me by telling me to order a dress from my fave online store because he would be taking me to dinner that evening.
I picked this delicate mesh dress with flower embroidery. There’s so much going on – the neck tie, the elasticated waist that cinched me in comfortably, and the embroidery, of course. Yet, none of this takes away from how simple and beautiful this dress is.
It actually comes as two separates – the slip and the mesh that makes the dress what it is. It’s breathable, which was ideal because it was hot that day (and has been getting hotter ever since, am I right?). I’ve actually worn the slip separately with a white t-shirt underneath, so it’s like getting two dresses for the price of one.
I kept the palette all black with my barely there sandals, which damaged the back of my left foot. Seriously! I had to ask the waitress at the restaurant for a plaster because it cut me deep. It has only scabbed over now. However, don’t panic in case you want to get the shoes. It was my fault because I didn’t secure the fastening tight enough.
I was really feeling myself because I’d gotten my hair done two days before. It was actually a momentous occasion because I haven’t been able to have braids done for the past two years due to the battle I had with eczema. If you’ve been reading my blog, you know about that. You can get clued up here.
Dinner was lovely, so like I said, stay tuned for where my hubby took me. It was really nice just being alone with him. We had the entire restaurant to ourselves – no he didn’t book the whole thing out haha; there was no one else there. But I’ve said too much already.
Hope you enjoyed today’s post! Have a great Monday.
