I hope you're having a great week - How amazing is this weather?!
I'm back to you today with a quick post about my outfit from last weekend to share the details.
When buying dresses, I tend to go for fitted dresses or two-pieces (skirt and top or suit) so needless to say, the dress in this post is not my usual style!
I spotted this gorgeous orange flowy dress on Asos recently and fell in love. I'm always drawn to bright colours so I thought I would go for something a little different this time.
I didn't realise when ordering the dress that it was full length. I don't normally wear hats with full length dresses so I decided to take out the scissors, cut the dress to knee length and make a hat from the spare fabric - The pic above is how it turned out!
As I mentioned, I used the spare fabric from the dress to make the base of the hat.
When making a hat the same colour as the dress, I really like to get the colour 1 million percent exact. The best way of doing this is to make the hat from the dress fabric - You're always guaranteed a perfect colour match (I appreciate some people aren't matchy matchy but I tend to like it that way for myself!)
If I'm going to Ladies Day at the Races, I tend to run riot with the hat but when it's a Wedding, I tend to pare it back a little. For this look, I added some gorgeous orange roses and cut out feathers.
Orange and gold are kind of on the one colour palette so I thought gold was the best colour for the accessories.
I wore my gold strappy sandals from River Island.
I wore a little gold clutch from Jimmy Choo. I completely forgot to take a picture from this post but I have shared some videos on my Instagram stories.
I don't usually wear statement jewellery with hats but I thought these cute earrings from Zara complimented the shoes and style of dress!
