Hibiscus flowers just make me happy. I always associate them with Fiji and my family, especially my grandma who has an interpretation of a hibiscus flower tattooed on her forearm (I have the same tattoo on my thigh).
When I spotted this dress at Vivien of Holloway, I instantly fell in love! You can tell right away that these are bright, bold flowers. I love the simple colour scheme too.
I adore a well-fitted garment and this dress is a dream – you don’t need to wear a bra with it! The skirt falls beautifully, it looks gorgeous with or without a petticoat.
For this shoot, I added a black cropped cardigan and simple black shoes. You could also turn this into a much more casual outfit by adding a jumper and some Converse.
I tried a dry-set on my hair for the first time. It came out really smooth but I missed my usual frizzy curls.
Thanks to Susan Phelps Photography for another stunning set of photos – I love them!
