Pink Lace Dress: Topshop ~ Clutch Bag: New Look ~ Wedges: Peacocks ~ Socks: Madewell

Vintage Lace, Pastel Nails, Heels with Socks & Clutch;
Hello! Sorry about my absence this past week, I had my last exam on Wednesday and since it's been gloriously sunny in Falmouth. I've since spent nearly every day lazing about in the sun, either on the beach or in our garden. It was my belated University birthday on Friday and it was a really lovely day. I went into town for breakfast with Alessio, Melanie and Natalie, and had a picnic in the garden with squash in our tea-set and jubilee cupcakes! Then in the evening we had tapas & cocktails in teacups at Dolly's Tearoom, which was lovely,  and amazingly there was a 50's style jive band in the bar, which was best music to dance to! 
This is the outfit I wore for my birthday night, I saw the dress on the Topshop website and fell in love with it straight away. It reminded me of one they had for sale last year, that sold out before I could get my hands on it. But I love the colour of this one, even if I was a bit intimidated by the paleness, I was worried it'd just make me look even paler!
Look how cute the cat teapot is! They had SO many in every shape/colour you could imagine! Dolly's Tearoom really is a lovely little place, it's pretty hidden but it's like a little gem in the high street, if you ever visit Falmouth, or Cornwall for that matter, you really should take a little visit! They really do the best cream teas, if you follow me on instagram, you'll have seen my massive chocolate cake last week, ha! 
Thank you to all of my new readers, i've been guilty (again) of being a bit absent from the blogging world, due to the lovely sunny weather at the moment! But i'm going to dedicate tomorrow to catching up on my favourite blogs!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.

  5. Happy belated birthday my lovely! Absolutely adore the grey socks/shoes paired with the dress; perfect! :-)

    Dolly's sounds like my sort of place - anywhere you can buy a cream tea as well as cocktails in teacups is fine by me! But then that's my vintage china obsession talking

  6. That dress looks wonderful on you! You needn't have worried about the colour. And Dolly's looks like the perfect place to celebrate your birthday, especially when there's a live band there. Reckon they'd let me buy the teapot if I asked nicely? xxx

  14. Your title is very deceptive, there is no tying of ribbons nor any any pearls for that matter.

    I do like the cat teapot, the ideal animal for a teapot is surely an hippopotamus because it is round just like a traditional teapot.
