Dream a Little




'Love is a dream' lace Blazer: c/o St. Frock (link here)

Statement necklace: Forever 21
'Montana silver haze' Hat: c/o Lack of Colour (link here)
Platform boots: Nasty Gal

I bought a new 50mm lens last Friday, and was so excited to test it out! I'm definitely happier with the bokeh than my Sigma lens, and it was relatively cheap too (~$400 for an investment into the blog). Thankfully this was a foggy morning as I'm so sick of dealing with harsh light contrast especially with all the shadows in this area lol, which made photo-taking a breeze.
 
This outfit was a bit of a mish mash of a bunch of layers I put together, and then just decided it worked lol! I recently received my latest haul from Forever 21 in the mail, and it's another biggie! I got this bodycon grey wrap dress and necklace both from the haul, along with many other goodies.
I was hoping to take the dress out to work, but unfortunately it keeps riding up at the front when I walk so it's a little impractical :(
 
Since the dress is so body-hugging I thought I would balance out the look with a loose-fitted blazer. There's so much beautiful intricate lace detail on this blazer from St. Frock- and wearing it over a dark-coloured inner layer makes the pattern shine, especially from the back. And how perfect is this wide-brimmed grey hat by Lack of Color? It's such a cool statement piece that's just the thing to give an outfit a boho edge.
