Outfit: Strawberry Fields

Dress - Black Milk Clothing (old) | Shoes - H&M | Sunglasses - H&M | Earrings - H&M (old) |  Bracelets - Forever 21

Since everyone has been raving about milkmaid braids this summer, I thought I'd give it a go as well. This was my first attempt and, mind you, I was so glad I put my hair up at that day! It was absolutely boiling. Besides, why did no one tell me that milkmaid braids were actually this easy and effortless? A messy bun requires a lot more work for me.
Anyway, the dress. Isn't it just perfect? When I found out about this dress for the first time, Black Milk Clothing had long discontinued it already so it was quite a challenge to get it. Granted it's not exactly my size, but it sits quite nicely nevertheless.
My well-loved Lita dupes from H&M make yet another appearance on my blog. Well, what can I say, I'm not exactly a sandals or flats person. I love my heels all year round!


  1. Such a pretty dress! Your milkmaid braid looks lovely too! :)


  2. Absolutely stunning, Elina!
    That dress is amazing, love the lipstick you paired with it. The milkmaid braids are such a cute touch to the outfit :) x

  3. You look stunning! The dress suits you perfectly

  4. YES THE DRESS IS JUST PERFECT AND WHY IT HAS TO BE DISCONTINUED OMG. someone needs to make a pineapple version of this alskj;lsdfk (but making blueberry version will be really creepy bc it can look like bunch of goat's poop lol). I've tried doing milkmaid braid, first attempt, no go, second attempt, still nope. I guess i'm just a poop when it comes to hair styling.

  5. Maybe you'll be as lucky as I was and get one off eBay! It's certainly not the cheapest dress but I just had to have it. A pineapple version would look so cool! I'd definitely wear that! Black Milk has done a pineapple print before, someone should totally suggest them to do a skater dress with that print.
    I've watched a couple of tutorials on it before I tried it. The bobby pin part is the hardest! I'm not the best at hairstyles either so I'm sure you can do it if you keep trying!
    Thank you so much for your nice comments, I really apprechiate it that you read my blog! :)

  6. Don't apologize for those shoes... I LOVE them and they look so good with all your outfits you have paired them with! :) This dress is amazing, I really like it and it looks very nice on you! Also, your hair.. ahh! Love love love it!
