On Thursday 26th July it was my 19th birthday, it feels like only yesterday I was 18 so it felt crazy celebrating 19. We were invited to a family wedding on the day of my birthday, so I got the chance to get all dressed up.
I spent hours trying to find the perfect outfit, going from shop to shop in the Metro Centre, trying on at least 10 dresses in every shop. Everything was either to small or to big or just didn’t look right on me. After what felt like an impossible task, we headed to Miss Selfridge. I ended up trying on around 20 dresses, which was not fun when you are sick of trying clothes and have got all hot and bothered. However, they had so much choice and the final dress I tried on I knew was the perfect dress. I was so relieved.
The next task was finding some heels to go with it. I have numerous pairs of black heels, but my birthday was the perfect excuse to get another to go with my new dress. We headed back to New Look this time to wander the shoe section, as my Nana had a gift card she needed using. I found the shoes I wanted straight away and after trying them on I fell in love with them. They are so comfy, with a low block heel and don’t rub on your heel, ankle or toes. I think they have to be one of the most comfiest heels I have ever worn. I wore them for around 11 hours and my feet held up the whole time.
