Stacey's Smiles

Macaron & Martini making at Oh La La  for a friend's Hen Weekend!

Summer in our Garden.

Currently Waking Up Next To....

The perfect 'Sole Mate' for my Kate Spade Dress, shop them here.

I always find the cutest note cards in T.K Maxx. 

So we are almost 7 months through 2016, WOW. It has flown! This year has been a very busy, but awesome year so far and I hope it continues that way! I have another wedding to attend next month, a sewing course later in the year and a trip to London planned so far! What have you all got to look forward to this year??

Old Summer Shorts

Primark Top // H&M Shorts // Topshop Sandals //
Old Navy Tote // ASOS Flamingo Necklace

These old H&M shorts are a summer staple of mine and come out every year when the sun starts shining! Luckily H&M bring out similar styles each year so when these ones finally wear out I'll be able to replace them. In fact every piece I'm wearing in this post, except for the adorable flamingo necklace, which was a birthday gift, is an old piece! Sometimes I love just pulling out some old classics I've forgotten about!

Laduree X Kerrie Hess Collection

I have the sweetest tooth and I find it had to pass a macaron by, there's just something about them that makes them so aesthetically pleasing and irresistible (which is why I had to photograph these hehe). I always love to stop by Laduree when I'm in London and gaze at the window displays and sweet treats. 
They still had some of these adorable Kerrie Hess boxes left, so I decided to treat myself to some macarons! I love Kerrie's illustrations and I love keeping Laduree macaron boxes to store everything from twine and ribbons to my jewels in them, so this seemed like a perfect way to add one of Kerrie's beautiful designs into my home! 
I received these mini cake domes as a birthday gift, you may have spotted them in my Flamingo Party Post, but they couldn't be more perfect for holding a macaron in if they tried! The 'Eat Me' tags are the perfect finishing touch, but you don't have to tell me to eat a macaron, these ones didn't last long at all!

Birthday Dress Take Two

Vintage & Gorjana Rings // Bracelet from Paris // Sorrento Leather Bag (similar)

Just after I had returned from my trip to Sorrento where I had purchased the most perfect blush pink bag, I spotted this dress over on Gal meets Glam, and instantly knew I needed it to go with my bag, it matched perfectly! I managed to grab it with a discount and now it's on sale so you can get it for an even better deal! 
I had been patiently waiting until my birthday to wear it out for the first time and I paired it with these shoes which I found in T.K Maxx for a birthday dinner. I would love some Valentino's but my budget won't stretch there so I was excited to find these similar ones for a tiny fraction of the price! 
This dress has become a quick favourite and I plan to wear it for afternoon tea at the Ritz next!

Stacey's Smiles

 Breakfast in Bed on my Birthday.

A sweet delivery of flowers in the post from a dear friend!

A sweet treat from Laduree.

Getting Windswept in Southwold.

New Summer PJ's making me crave an ice cream.

My new blogging goal is to try and blog every other week, and so far I have been sticking to it. There might not be any new posts up next week but I have more in the pipe line for the week after including my second birthday dress (see a sneak peek here and it's on sale). This weekend I am off to London again for a Hen Weekend, I'm actually looking forward to having a weekend soon where I can just sleep in and relax, but I know that this weekend is going to be packed full of celebrations and fun! Happy Weekend!

Birthday Dress Take One

 Vintage Dress purchased in Paris // Banana Republic Belt // Old Navy Bag // 
Sandals purchased in Sorrento (similar

This dress has made appearances on the blog before and remains a firm favourite in my wardrobe! It was just €10 from a vintage store in Paris.
I decided to pair it with some blush pink accessories I've picked up on sale recently like this belt and this bag for my day time birthday outfit. I had these sandals made to measure in Sorrento but I have linked some similar ones below, or you could always hope on a plane to Sorrento, you'll love it there, I promise!
