Floral skater dress, Zara; Orla Kiely for Clarks Marianne heels; Celine Trio.
Stop the press because not only did I have a genuine party to attend at the weekend, I also wore a beautiful dress. Woah woah, calm down Michelle...!

To celebrate my best friend's engagement, she threw an amazing BBQ and garden party at her Mum's house. We sipped on wine and homemade punch (and obligatory beer for me) as is mandatory at these things and had a darn good evening catching up and swapping laughs (mostly from my end because my life is kinda ridiculous). It's crazy to think that Kayleigh's getting set to be wed in 2016. Literally insane. From our days at school sharing stories and planning sleepovers, to job-hunting together and wearing matching clothes, we've been through it all. Congratulations Kayleigh and Jean!

For the momentous occasion, I wanted to wear pink for some odd reason. I instantly fell in love with this Zara number on their website a few weeks ago. It's been hanging patiently in my wardrobe for its' first outing and I just adore it. I had to take the straps in a little but it is perfect with just the right amount of flaring. I teamed it with my beautiful Orla Kiely Marianne's but, y'know, ended up kicking them off once fight-for-your-food tactics were put in place. I actually really like the pink and yellow together and am totes getting this ensemble out again for future summer occasions. x

  8. Congrats to your friend. I wish her the best in planning her wedding, but at least she has the next year and a half!

    Love print on your dress, Michelle! It reminds me of something similar I saw at the mall yesterday, but failed to buy - now you have me thinking of it! This is always a problem of mine.
