The Autumnal Princess Dress


Spotty Frill Detail Sleeveless Dress, Dahlia

Tomorrow sees the start of my autumn semester at university. My life concerns have already shifted from what biscuit I want to eat next, to hours spent thumbing page markers onto books, sifting through lecture slides and making note after note on the key features of Romanticism. I'm really excited to get back into the swing of things though as it reminds me of how far I've come since my diagnosis, whilst also reminding me of how much more I've yet to get off my ass and achieve. 

Life, in general, has been pretty nice of late. The beautiful Lyzi came to stay over at our little studio the other night and it was pretty lovely indeed. We ate yummy Thai food before enjoying a lot of laughter at the hands of the disco room. We hit the jackpot and stumbled across a very intense mover; I went with my instinct and enjoyed a dance to Livin' La Vida Loca with him whilst Lyzi pissed herself from the sidelines. We also deployed a few of our own moves to the sound of The Backstreet Boys and B*Witched, to name but a couple. Naturally, we spent the next day slumped in bed eating pastry and watching a few episodes of our beloved Dexter. Perfection, eh?! LOVE YOU, GRANDMA.

This dress, for me, encompasses the perfect blend of autumnal princess yet slumberous Sunday comfort due to its pretty detailing combined with its forgiving netting petticoat. As ever, I'm looking for ways to style this now that the autumn nights are drawing in. What do you think? How would you wear this dress? I'm planning on buying a smaller belt to wear with it but otherwise I am stuck for inspiration! Can we all just take a second to appreciate the last photograph please....LOOK AT HIS LITTLE FACE! JUST LOOK AT IT! I die

I'm off to read 'The Sorrows of Young Werther' and send a few disgruntled emails to the I.T department because the system is still down. Good luck to all of my readers who just so happen to be attending their first day of university/first day of term tomorrow! Let me know how you're spending your Sunday in the comments below! 




  1. Such gorgeous pictures! You and your doggie are so cute :-)

  2. This looks so good on you Bee! I'm dying of cute from the puppy, too. He looks just exactly like my ex boyfriend's puppy! First day back at university for me tomorrow, though I have no idea what I'm doing or what's going to be happening as I forgot to pick up my schedule this week (bad student already!) Have fun with second year! xx

  3. I'm so scared to start uni tomorrow... Plus as an Erasmus student I don't have access to the "system" as you call it yet, and therefore I won't be able to do the work for tomorrow... More stress haha.
    We'll be fine! xx

  4. Sounds like you and Lyzi had a great time!

  5. This dress looks lovely and your dog is so cute :) xx

  6. Gorgeous photos! You look amazing wearing that dress :)x

  7. The dress is so feminine and delicate and the setting is equally pretty!
    Good luck with year two m'lovely.

  8. Lovely photography :) I love the dress too, as well as that little rascal in the last photo! Cx

  9. I start back on Tuesday & I know what you mean about wanting to get back in the swing of things! This last week me and my housemates have pretty much done nothing - bliss!

  10. That dress is so bloody pretty, as are you! And I am melting over that little pup in the last photo.

  11. Ooh Bee you little autumnal doll. Such a beautiful dress! I'm feeling ever so slightly nostalgic for University now, biscuit choice and highlighter choice included ;) best of luck for tomorrow sweet, nothing beats that strange First Day Back feeling - in a good way! xxxx

  12. puppy!!! Thai food and pop music sounds amazing.
    I think you could wear that with a chunky cream cardi, a thin brown leather belt and brogues xx

  13. That dress is beautiful, sailory (new word) but not quite and oh so cute. Good luck with Werther, I had the joy of him in my life last year. It wasn't as bad as I thought actually, but he does go on and on about his undying love a little too much for my liking (: xx

  14. firstly, you should definitely do outfit posts more often, because you are as cute as a button. yummy scrummy. secondly, i want your dress and your hair.
    and thirdly, your little sleepover with lyzi sounds amazing and incredible. I'm totally gatecrashing next time, so I'm semi pre warning you.xx

  15. That dress is super duper lovely <3 and the pooch, too too cute!xx

  16. You look beautiful Bee. Gorgeous dress! I hope uni goes well this term. Can't believe how much your pup is growing up now. I'm in love!! xx

  20. Beautiful dress, you're so bloody pretty! Can't believe how cute that little pooch is, he's grown so much too!

  21. Looking HOT Bee, and yes, that face. Makes me really sad thinking back to the Black Lab sisters my grandparents had when I was a kid- they both died within a month of each other this year. They were super cute too.

    Hope the semester treats you well. This is the first time in 5 yearsI'm not starting a new semester, I can't work out whether it's a good feeling or not.
