My Style Diary - Summer Cocktail


It feels like it's been a while since my last post! The past few weeks feel like they've kind of whizzed by in a bit of a blur. I guess it's just that time of the year where everything gets a little crazy.
Tonight I finally had a chance to relax and unwind, and just have some "me time".
That's one of the problems about being an introvert. As much as I love catching up with friends, I can never feel truly relaxed and re-energised unless I have a little bit of time on my own... 

Anyway, I've had that time tonight, and now I'm feeling much better.
It's amazing what your surroundings can do to help de-stress you too. I went on a bit of a cleaning rampage this morning before work, as the house was a little cluttered and was just making me feel very tense. When there's mess around, I can never completely relax. It feels like my mind is just whirring around and around... but now that everything's all nice and neat I feel so much more calm. (I may or may not have just a touch of OCD :p ). I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like that though? 

Moving on...

I'd nearly forgotten I took these photos. They're from a couple of weeks ago when I went to a friends "Summer Cocktail" themed 21st. It was such a fun night, and a perfect chance to break out this Free People dress that I found when I was in New York a few years ago. This dress reminds me of an amazing trip, and of my friend Alex who was such a good sport tagging along and being very patient as I did a ridiculous amount of shopping. I remember we were in Bloomingdales when I picked this up (and I went a little bit crazy in the Free People section). It's a shame there's no store here in Perth... ordering online just isn't quite the same!

Anyway, I really love this dress - the cream colour and the details of the fabric are really beautiful. I also love the low back and the high-low hemline. The only problem is it requires rather a lot of Hollywood Tape to keep everything in place, so it's a little bit of a fuss to wear! 
Ah well, you can't have everything! 

I hope you're enjoying your Friday night!

Lots of Love
