When living in a building site…

…down tools and take a bunch of pictures of your new thrifted triumphs.

As someone who has never really “summered” well, in particular finding the clothes that match my mind made creation of what summer dressing should be, (see The Talented Mr Riply, Swallows and Amazons with a little of I Capture The Castle in there for good measure) when in actual fact it’s one giant polyester nightmare – all be it a genuine 60’s nightmare – and mounds of heavy denim, brilliant.

Not that i’ve nailed it this year by any means, but I have found some surprisingly good linen and cotton bits that has meant that even though we have finally got the long hot summer that the UK literally dreams of and never usually gets, I haven’t been as big of a sartorial sweaty mess as usually I am. Result.

IMG_3881IMG_3868Step forward this cotton, viscose mix summer dress I found on my recent rummages. At a uk size 16 it is a little big but never be put off by things being oversized. This dress had a little waist tie which traditionally would be tied around the back, on me it looked better tied around the front which made it look a little more modern and made my short waist look less obvious by gathering the fabric rather than stretching it.

It was so hot this day I kept my styling super minimal. The most simplistic of jewellery, my tiny Alex Monroe ring and Cabinet Jewellery bracelet.

I stumbled upon these dreamy shoes at a local charity shop, they were just £4 I truly don’t think I breathed the whole time until I had them paid for and in my bag.

My little bag holds so much! But is super delicate so I have to keep it to a minimum, only one book and maybe three lipsticks..and maybe a snack..or two.

I think I might take the little flowers off of it making it more chic when it’s plain, what do you reckon?

Obviously every aspiring blogger needs an assistant. Get yourself a little Teddy, he is the best in the world.

A new radiator in the background, can anyone say FASHUN.
