The Beautiful Coast Cherry Birthday Dress

Coast Cherry Embroidered Dress For My 30th Birthday

Thank you for all of your lovely comments on my blog post about turning 30, you’re all really kind and I’m so lucky to have readers like you, so I can’t thank you enough! Today is my actual birthday, I’m 30 today, and while I already said everything I had to in the previous post, I wanted to round that out by saying I’m very excited for my 30’s, I’m in a great place, a better one than I could have imagined, and everyone is telling me how good the 30’s are due to still be younger, but much more full of wisdom, and so far, I can see how that’s true. I’m really looking forward to what’s to come!

Now getting to my outfit, this is the dress I decided to choose for my birthday outfit! It’s the Coast Embroidered Cherry Hi Low Dress and it’s literally stunning! I saw it a couple of months ago and completely fell in love with the chic design. I’ve always liked Coast as they make some great dresses (do you remember this one, this one, and this one?) and you can’t really go wrong with them for special occasions. What made it even better is that it was in the sale with 50% off, plus I had an extra 20% off from a discount code, so I count that as a steal!

Since this Cherry Embroidered Dress is the focal point, I just went with a simple nude heel, my mystic topaz earrings that my mum bought me back from St. Ives, and a small silver bracelet. I wanted all of the attention to be on the dress, so I didn’t even have a bag. Last time I shared my birthday was in 2016 and I had a balloon (see here), but I wanted to go for elegant simplicity this time around, so thought minimal was the key.

I absolutely love this location as you have seen it in a few of my photos before, especially in the summertime. It’s really feminine and pretty with the bench, the trees and the scenic setting that it has. We kept waiting to get the perfect shots when the wind was blowing just enough to lift the skirt, and I have to say (along with this outfit) that these are some of my favourite shots this year so far! I absolutely love them! I get really excited to share photos with you that I personally enjoyed doing and love the outcome of, and these fit into that category perfectly, so I genuinely hope you love them!

Anyway, I will let you know all of the things I got up to in celebration of turning 30 in my next blog post! Comment and let me know what you think of this Coast Embroidered Cherry Hi Low Dress! It’s currently sold out in most places, but a couple of shops still have it, linked below! I took a size UK 10 for everyone wanting to know about sizing. Lorna xx.

    Hello Lorna, I congratulate you on the entrance in this new era of your life. My 30th Birthday was 11 years ago and it was really a turning point for me: I got my Ph.D., got married and now I have a 6 y. old boy. Life is or can be exceptional and interesting regardless of how old you are, but I think everyone feels the change in his/her thinking when you start saying for example 30,31,32 instead of 20,21…This you’ll realize in the course of the coming years….Anyways, stay true to yourself and do the things you love most, I think this is what really counts after all. Cheers!

    Happy Birthday! It’s nice to know you’re looking forward being 30, you look stunning. Sadly, it is not available in both sites. Yes, no need for a bag as this dress is striking on its own.

    I’ll get the one negative out of the way first… this doesn’t beat the metallic dress for title of best dress that you’ve ever worn. šŸ˜‰ But, hey, I don’t think anything ever will do. LOL

    Seriously though, I think this is an absolutely stunning dress. That shade of pink is so rich and vibrant. Really I should say “shades” rather than than “shade” shouldn’t I? I can see in the close ups that there’s some eye-catching variation within the embroidery. I also think that the dress falls and flows very nicely on you and maybe gives the impression of slightly more height too. I love that second photo where the breeze is just lifting the bottom of the dress a little. I can see why you like these photos so much and I completely agree with you that they’re amongst your best of the year so far.

    I have to say too, that white suits you so well. I think it’s a colour that requires quite a lot of confidence to wear (more confidence than I have anyway) but you do it brilliantly. šŸ˜€

      Thank you so much, Steven! I am so glad you liked it and took in the details of the photos! I like the wind moving the dress around too, it’s such a nice touch! And I didn’t think it would beat your favourite metallic one, but I think it’s a close second?

      • August 11, 2018 / 7:59 pm

        Yes, I think a close second sounds about right. šŸ™‚ Mind you, they are two very different styles so it might not really be fair of me to compare them directly. šŸ˜‰

    You are mesmerising Lorna. I hope that’s not too bold. All your outfits and shots are great. That dress is stunning and the whole outfit perfect. Your expressions are always so enigmatic which really adds to your blog and some of your outfits and modelling are clearly meant to express the power of womanhood. Power to you mate.
