FINALLY the sun is out, he's got his hat on and spring has sprung. I hope you all had a lovely Easter, I know I did. Mr WLL whisked me away to a country cottage with a hot tub and it was perfect. We went for lovely long walks in the snowy fields, dined in cosy country pubs with log fires and spent time relaxing in the hot tub. Unfortunately for me though, I've ended up with an awful cold. I'm assuming it was the relaxing in 38 degree heat in the hot tub then getting out to below freezing temperatures outside that did it but either way, I woke up on Bank Holiday Monday with a sore throat, runny nose, fever and cough, the works! We'd arranged to go out with our friends in the afternoon and since I hate dropping people in it, the show had to go on! I needed a dress to lift my mood and this gorgeous dress is what wore, complete with a poorly face!
When feeling ill, I find that having a bath, getting ready and popping on something colourful elevates my mood. This dress is the Jewel Drop Back Waist Dress from AX Paris. It's a gorgeous dress with a chiffon drape overlay and sparkly jewel embellishment in the middle under the bust. The back is shirred and elasticated making it a great fit and so comfortable to wear, plus it is fully lined to the knee. It features a drop back that floats as you walk, making it feel so girly and pretty. I've seen this dress available in other colours but I loved the look of the green. When it arrived, the first thing that struck me was actually the shade of green. The dress that arrived was a gorgeous vibrant jewel green, much brighter than the way it looked online. I was so pleased about this as it encouraged me to try a colour I wouldn't usually wear and I absolutely love the result. When I was out on the bank holiday there was no other girls were wearing a dress in this colour, its unique and attracted so many compliments which made me feel great, considering I was poorly! I can't wait to get better and wear this again with a cracking Xen Tan!
