Last Wednesday and Thursday we experienced some beautiful, incredible and amazing summer like weather in winter. I can't even begin to explain how much I love the warm weather; it can never be too hot in my opinion and it instantly makes me feel much happier about life. It was such a bonus to have this weather when I wasn't expecting it too and it's interesting to see the value that is placed on the first warm day of the season. I noticed how fast people were to bring out pretty summer dresses and even spend time at the beach. I decided to take advantage of the day by wearing my backless dress from Dotti for the first time. I posted it here. I wanted to wear my navy blue heels to match my dress but I had a lot of walking last Wednesday so I thought a simple pair of silver flats would be much more reasonable. I'm sure I'll have other opportunities to wear heels with this dress. The lace on the dress coupled with the backless feature meant that minimal accessorising was quite acceptable. 

The warm weather makes me want to buy some new summer dresses. I've got a very busy week but I want to make some time to look around the shops. Review and Dotti have the best dresses right now. 





I can't believe how red my hair looks in the sun!

The back of this dress is just beautiful. I love outfits that have interesting backs. You think it is one way and then BAM! The person turns around, and it's like, "Whoaaaa." I love that moment.

You look lovely! This style of dress suits you absolutely perfectly. I'm looking forward to the warmer weather too - although it definitely can get too hot here in the summer!

Your Dotti blue and green Lace Skater Dress is beautiful!
I love the cut of the dress, the swingy flared look,
that it is covered in that exquisite lace
and that the bottom of the hem follows the lace pattern's design,
resulting in a lovely scalloped edge. The colour is pretty
(I'd personally want to wear pink lingerie under it as I think it would contrast nicely).
The woodsy (park?) setting for your photos looks very relaxing.
I like the feminine touch added by the Equip hair-bow too.
Some of the lace dresses at Review can be a touch pricey (but pretty).
That's a very nice selection of dresses at Dotti.
P.S. Thank you for the comment on my blog, Full Brief Panties :)
