Born in the Wrong Decade

Bella Moda crop top | Next maxi dress | Penneys bag | School socks and shoes

I was planning on posting my first back to school blogpost but that will have to wait until Thursday because I have to thank you's ! Not only did Dainty Sprinkles reach 30,000 pageviews yesterday, It also made the longlist in four categories in the Blog Awards Ireland ! I seriously cannot believe this and I owe a huge thank you to everyone who reads my blog and those who nominated Dainty Sprinkles, I'm still in shock it's so amazing ! Dainty Sprinkles made the longlist of the following categories : Best Fashion & Beauty, Best Photography, Best Personal and Best Youth. Thank you thank you so much everyone, To be make the longlist of any category let alone four is just amazing I can't thank yous enough ! Congratulations to my fellow bloggers who also made the longlists, You can read the full lists here

In other news I'm currently revamping areas of my blog so be sure to check out my 'About Me' and 'Contact' pages both on the right hand side. This outfit I wore yesterday (Monday.) is very 1920's inspired. I did my Google research and the hem on dresses during the 20's were usually midway between the knee and ankle, The floral patterns were quite duller than nowadays and consisted more of browns with orange toned reds and dark pinks. My floral print maxi dress half does the job because it's gone slightly short on me so it's up my ankles now ! I added the crop top in for a pop of colour and this is my lazy day can't be bothered to wear tights outfit ! I bought this black rose headband last week so I wore it like a flapper hair accessory, It's a bit festival-ish as well like the floral headbands !

So thank you again so so much and I'll talk to you's soon,
