having a ball





Dress: Karen Millen
Peacock feathers: Accessorize
Shoes: Jimmy Choo
Nails: Barry M's Orchid (166)
Tan: Lauren's Way


Last weekend was my end of season hockey dinner and dance. It's a great evening which allows the whole club the chance to come together, share the triumphs of the previous season whilst indulging in some food, drink and unashamedly bad dancing! The night is quite plush, with the men donning a tuxedo, making them almost unrecognisable from the usual hockey attire I am so use to seeing them in. I bought this dress maybe 4 years ago for a wedding and then sadly after that , have never worn it since. I just love the colour of it, which shimmers between dark emerald green and a rich deep blue. I opted for a clean neckline, choosing some statement peacock feather earrings and stepped out into my carriage in my Jimmy Choo's.


I hope you are all well and having a good weekend. 
I made a multitude of macaroons yesterday, so I am very excited to share them with you, providing I haven't scoffed them all by then...

You look lovely Mrs :) The colour is gorgeous, and the shoes & earrings look amazing. *drools over the shoes a bit*
I bet it is so weird seeing everyone out of hockey gear, shows you all scrub up pretty good.
Lovely dress, glad you had the chance to wear it again & that you had a good time xx

Hi Milly! Could you please explain how you get your hair into this lovely style? Our hair is quite similar in length and I think your style would be a nice way to wear it whilst I'm growing it out! x
