Ox Blood Rain

So this weekend it was my birthday! Then the day after it was my mans birthday. Naturally, to celebrate this, we decided to go to the Sealife Centre and Birmingham Museum and although it is July, July now seems to think it's October! So despite the weather, we braved the outdoors and conquered sea world!

Dress - ASOS Curve, Leggings - Newlook Inspire, Loafers - Schuh, Bag a River Island.

I had been lusting after this dress for such a long time on the ASOS Curve website so when I saw it in the sale, it was mine! It is glorious. I'm really not usually a fan of a dipped hem however the quality of this dress, makes the dipped hem, a classy dipped hem. The material is thick and falls beautifully, the cut and sizing is perfect and the sleeves are a great length. The only one thing I will say is that on the ASOS website, the material looked a lot silkier, however, that doesn't impact on my love of the dress! If I whipped off my leggings, whacked on a pair of heels and grabbed a clutch bag this would also be the easiest day to night dress ever. It's so perfect to dress up or down! 

Oh these shoes! For years I had been after a good pair of Ox blood brogues or loafers and without steering into Doc Martin territories (which I couldn't do because I have no patience when it comes to breaking in shoes), I had had no luck. So when my beautiful man got me these for my birthday, I almost shed a tear. They are the most beautiful pair of shoes I have seen in a long time and SO comfortable! The rubbed a tiny, tiny but but it was the first time I had worn them and we did walk quite a way! Oh they are so beautiful and I know they are going to become a staple item in my wardrobe.

Here are some pictures from our day! I am particularly fond of the majestic giant sea turtle and the statue of the boy with his winkle out.

Lots Of Love,
