OOTD | Milk maid braid












Dress - Topshop
Jeans - H&M
Bag - Asos
Socks - Topshop
jelly sandals - Primark
Sunglasses - Urban Outfitters
Nails - Models own hyper gel cornflower gleam

I bought this dress/top from Topshop last summer and am still obsessed with the colour and detailing of it, i usually wear this as a dress in the summer as its fairly short but it definitely wasn't warm enough to do that the other day so i wore my white skinny jeans with it and it definitely works as a top too! I'm trying to make the most out of the clothes i do have in my wardrobe before buying a load more because there are so many things i think I've only worn once which is such a waste! Nothing compares to new clothes though hey? I'm also LOVING the new hyper gel range from models own, they have a super shiny finish and they last for quite a few days without the damage or hassle of getting gels done! Anyone else tried them?


Having long hair i really should make more effort with it than i normally do as i usually just shove it up in a pony but i love pretty plaits and braids and so this was my first attempt at a milk maid braid after seeing a video of Zoe London doing it on Instagram, i had to have a go as it looked so easy! I am so pleased with the outcome and surprised that it stayed up all day, this will be a great hairstyle in the summer with the warmer weather as it keeps it out of your face all day. However, i think i need to work on tidying up the presentation of it at the back! But its not bad for a first attempt! What do you think?

What do you think of this outfit? Do you like pastels? Do you like milk maid braids?
