I'd been waiting for the perfect day to whip out this Maxi, and today (yesterday) just seemed right. My lovely sister Kezia shot these, we had a lot of fun doing so. I messed around with the curves and levels on PS to get this effect, I thought it brought the photos to life. I hope you like them! :)

Dress : H&M
Hair Band : H&M
Shoes : Zara
Bag : Claire's
Rings : Asos & Miss Selfridge

You look so beautiful! Especially in the 3rd photo you actually look like a model in that one.

I really wish I could pull off long dresses! They just make me look short.
