Since purchasing this crochet dress months ago it rapidly became one of my favourites, but surprisingly I hadn't yet featured it on my blog until now. It has become somewhat one of my summer staples, and I wouldn't have been able to live without it on my recent holiday to Turkey. At the moment I'm really into pairing really feminine dresses with grungier, more edgy pieces like black boots and a leather jacket, and this dress is ideal for doing so. Speaking of black boots, these ones arrived in the post earlier today: my very first pair of Dr Martens! You may have seen me tweeting about them when I bought them last week, as I was lucky enough to pick them up for a bargain price with a 60% discount via Secret Sales. I'd never previously shopped on this website, but it's definitely worth checking them out and signing up to their mailing list to stay in the loop, as brands are usually only on sale for a few days at a time. I think at the moment they're selling OPI nail polishes for a discounted price, so make sure you have a look! I'll probably live in these boots once I start college in September, although they're more of a winter boot due to the faux shearling lining.

I had a ton of hilarious out-takes from this post, some of which I posted on Twitter. You can take a peek at them by clicking here- feel free to have a giggle at my expense!

Hugs and kisses, Sarah xo
