Dress: Lavish Alice // Clutch Bag: H&M // Necklace: H&M // Rings: Miss Selfridge

Sorry I've been a little bit AWOL for the past few days... no real reason, I've just been a bit busier than usual. This post is a bit of a cheat, it's not really an 'outfit post', but I really wanted to show you what I wore on Saturday night.

I was out with my friends from work, for an 18th birthday. I'd been looking for the perfect dress for a couple of weeks, when I came across this bad boy! 

When dress shopping, I have a few rules;
-no bodycon dresses
-no cut out sides
-no boobtube/sleeveless styles
-no backless
This is all personal preference, and basically I know what I suit, so I know what I'm looking for. Since having a baby, I'm not exactly 'body confident' so if I know the areas I don't like are covered, I'm much more confident and happy.
Believe it or not, it's very hard to find dresses that match all of these points, especially the sleeveless one... you may have noticed, pretty much everything (dresses and tops) are sleeveless at the moment, it's a nightmare. I know Summer is approaching and it's going to be warm, but not everyone likes having their bingo wings out!

Anyway, as soon as I found this dress, I knew it was the one. I love the colours, and the style was perfect. When it arrived I was really happy, the fabric is quite heavy weight, so when it's on, it feels like it hangs really nicely. I'll definitely be shopping with Lavish Alice again!

For my night out I wore Crazy Angel fake tan - which is amazing, and teamed my dress with a tan and bright orange clutch bag, silver spike necklace and big silver rings.

What do you wear on nights out?
