Yosemite National Park

Driving through the national park we were surrounded by thousands of trees that looked like they never ended in every direction. Deposits of snow and ice on the side of the road signalled that we were getting closer. We pulled over to a visitor look out and there I saw the real life version of the my Macbook's desktop background. There it was with the sun shining right on it; El Capitan, Half Dome and the other rock formations, all of which seemed too good to be real. I'd never seen anything like it before.

During our couple of days in Yosemite National Park we did a couple of the easy walking trails (however I still managed to fall). My Nike free runs were not well equipped for the environment at all, lets just say I would have broken a hip if I had been a couple of decades older. 

One of my favourite sights was Mirror Lake. Once you see the lake you realise how literal its name is. The lake captures amazing reflections of the rocks, trees and sky and is surrounded by more trees and rocks and also never-ending beautiful white snow. 
Whenever people ask me what was my favourite place that we visited in the US, my response always includes Yosemite. It was nothing like I'd ever seen, including the deers!!

I'd definitely recommend venturing out of the big cities while travelling in the US and visiting a few of their national parks. I never though I would be so enthused by nature, but the beauty of these sights were unforgettable.

From night to day and back to night with one dress

Dress: Alpha60 (similar on sale!), Boots: Asos (similar), Lipstick: Nars, Bag: Louis Vuitton, Watch: Marc by Marc Jacobs

A dinner date, work the next day and then a 21st, all with this exaggerated turtle neck dress. Don't worry it is in my laundry basket now.

First night I wore it out with my everyday boots and natural make-up for a dinner date. We went to a Spanish restaurant and I prayed that I wouldn't spill paella on my pure white dress. Drumroll please... thank god for napkins, there was not a single smudge!

The second day I wore the dress with a cardigan tied around my waist with the boots again for an even more causal look. Also, I wasn't wearing the right underwear that day so I needed something to cover up my very obvious panty lines (oops lel).

On that second night I had a 21st and decided to wear it again, this time with a bold-lip colour and black pointed high heels.

I love a good dress that is versatile enough to be worn on a causal day or a formal event. I found some other dresses on #banggood# that I think could be worn with sneakers or killer pumps.

Here are my picks:
