Dress- Dotti // Belt- thrifted // Boots- Rubi // Necklace- ASOS

I finished my second year of uni yesterday and BOY does it feel great to be free!! I've spent the first day of the summer holidays working on blog posts, playing around with camera settings and picking up some old craft projects. As for my summer plans, I have about a month of lazing around the house and hanging out with friends and then I'm going to Vietnam for four weeks, which is very exciting! I've never travelled there before, so if you have any recommendations of places to visit do let me know in the comments, I'd love to read them!

I picked up this dress a while ago but only just got around to wearing it. I love the whole off-the-shoulder thing that's been going around for ages, which is so perfect for summer. The mustard colour is probably my favourite colour to dress in at the moment. I'm not sure if it's because warm yellows, reds and browns remind me of Autumn (my favourite month), or whether they just suit me better than cooler tones, but I'm always so drawn to wearing those colours. I left the rest of the outfit quite simple, with some black boots and a bolo necklace.

Hope you're all doing well, and good luck to those of you who are still in the middle of exams! x


  1. That's so exciting! Vietnam is my favourite place ever, as it has really strong connections with my dad :). And it's just a beautiful place!
    My biggest recommendations for Vietnam is to really try and immerse yourself. Find small restaurants and cafes, search for hidden beaches, wander through the streets, and don't be afraid to chat with the locals! They love Australians usually, and are always eager to greet you with a 'G'day!'. The first night I ever spent in Vietnam I went for a walk at about midnight (sleeping messed up after the plane) and got caught in the rain halfway out. Running back to my hotel in the rain, passing under plastic stretched above me and making up empty markets is still one of my favourite memories.

    Hoi An is still one of my favourite places, and I highly recommend Red Bridge Hotel, and the White Marble restaurant there. There's so many places to go and things to see, but don't forget to venture off the beaten track ! xxx

    1. Thank you so much for your lovely comment! Hearing you talk about Vietnam's made me even more excited to explore it next week!! That sounds like such a beautiful memory- it always seems the best memories of travels happens when you don't expect it!

      Thank you for those recommendations too! The White Marble restaurant has been put on the to-do list :) xx
