Saturday may well have been the hottest day of the year so far and a cotton sun dress was exactly what was required for the heat. We went to London to see friends - the South East is nearly always so much hotter than the South West where we live - and I was thankful that I had this very pretty embroidered dress that I thrifted a couple of years ago to wear (you can see how I styled it on the blog last here).
My last three outfit posts have all featured this orange bag, so I think it's safe to say that that's the best £7.50 I've ever spent on an accessory. I also can't get enough of these orange Marks & Spencer sandals which I simply adore - is there a better shoe out there??
With a messy ponytail and a bright lip I was good to go for the [insert groan here] FIVE-HOUR car journey that should have taken less than three. Oh, the joys of travelling on the roads on a hot weekend: One hot day and everyone decides to spend it on the roads that turn into car parks. Us included.
When I first got this dress I intended it to dye it a pastel blue blue or lilac (but realised I liked the cream in the end). What do you think - should I still try that for next year maybe? Do let me know what you think in the comments!
