Prom in Primary Colours

Would you believe, would you bloody believe that this dress came into my life just after my trip to Scotland, home of the tartan? Still, this little photoshoot gave me the opportunity to play out my prom dreams, wearing my boyfriend's jacket (if I had a boyfriend) as he walks me home after prom through our suburban American town. I'm thinking way too much into this. My actual "prom" was hilariously anglicised to be called 'the dinner and dance' instead, a name that very clearly outlined what we would be doing (have dinner, then dance) and not, in fact, engaging in American prom activities such as getting off with some dude you've talked to once in Geography or like, ending the night covered in pig's blood a la Carrie. jack wills love the sales 1

I'm sure a lot of my friends from school will be laughing right now at the thought of me in Jack Wills! Everyone loved that shop whilst I was at school, we have a huge one in Oxford and I spent many a Saturday afternoon in there with my best chums, loudly complaining about how expensive it was. However, this dress was sent to me by Love the Sales as part of their Jack Wills collection so I thought it was about time I tried it out! As you can see this dress isn't really my usual style, but I really do love the print and the shape. Paired with this jacket, lent to me by the photographer of this post Luke, I'm really into the dressed down effect. I've never been hugely comfortable in formalwear, which I suppose might come as a surprise because surely, as a fashion blogger, I would love to get dressed up? I guess I just like to be comfortable! Also shout out to my hair for actually behaving in this post and keeping the beehive to add to the prom queen effect, instead of sliding down like it usually does! Also, sorry there are a lot of photos in this post, it was great to have Luke helping me out with outfit photography, truly the most difficult task of fashion blogging, and we got a bit snap happy!
