Phew - day nearly over. It's been a hot one hasn't it? The temperature gauge in the car racked 32 degrees - that's positively Mediterranean!
Hot day = light and airy dress. Like this one from Zara circa 2011.
Zara Dress (old), Primark Gold Flip Flops (old)
Yes I like my plain little dresses but every now and then I try a print. And this one appealed because of the crisp colours on it and the fact that the small print didn't overwhelm me. This was originally a halterneck with ties which started in the middle but I cut them off and turned them in to straps as I like a more traditional look. It's also a little see through - stand me with the sun behind me and hey ho - classic Princess Di moment.
Anyway, this was worn to a kid's party first thing (oh joy) and it's always nice when someone asks you about your dress and is it current? Means they like it and they want one :o)
And then up to friends in the next village for the the annual beer festival which meant the kids were palmed off with the pub barbecue for dinner (because the mums don't want to cook) whilst the dads were drinking "dirty beer". "Dirty beer" is a term the mums use to try and make the dads feel bad about drinking beer. Doesn't work.
Luurveerleeey. All sort of hot doggy.
