I just liked the the exaggerated ruffles at the top of the dress which is balanced out by the A-line cut. The ruffles are more prominent and look more high fashion because of the bardot style. The bardot was important as it allowed me to have a longer line silhouette and not to be swallowed up by the ruffles.
This dress also made me feel like Madonna in the La Isla Bonita video, and who doesn’t want to chanel 80/90s Madonna when it comes to fashion?!
I kept my accessories simple with this look and my hair tucked behind my ears as I didn’t want the look to appear untidy. I chose silver accessories as I think gold would have made the outfit look tacky.
The Dominican Republic has become one of my favourite caribbean locations and I honestly can’t wait to visit again!
I like to use these luxurious locations as a time to unwind and relax the soul. But if you are more into exploring then there are plenty of water excursions available and if like us you could visit the Soana Island which is like a private island and was utter wanderlust! It had beautiful palm trees and the most cadet and cobalt blue sea I think I’ve ever seen! If you have seen my Instagram account you would have seen that I compared the trip to a vogue shoot – really it was that fabulous!
One trip was enough for me as I just wanted to be on our resort, relax, soak up the sun, sip on cocktails and do a bit of karaoke ( but I’ll spare you the details on that!) If you’re thinking about going to the Dominican Republic make sure you take your vitamin B tablets well in advance as you don’t want to have bites the size of satsumas like me!
Let me know what you think about this look and if you’ve ever been to the Dominican Republic and what your favourite parts were!
