It's England...It's August...

Monday, 8 August 2011

It's raining.

Are we surprised? Thought not.

I was all set to cancel today's outfit photos but then I discovered a brolly that matched it beautifully so, undeterred, I headed out at lunchtime and got snapping. It's a cute dress: it deserves to be photographed every now and then.




Sadly I couldn't do anything about the wind and ended up with hair plastered all over my lippy. Sigh. One day I might grow up and be the soignee type who has perfect red lipstick and hair that does what it's told. For now, I can't even control a flipping umbrella. Double sigh.


Pesky brolly

  5. I adore the mix of fabrics and colour. The stripy blouse looks fab with that dress. I refuse to get attached to any brolly, as I always end up breaking them. My Cath Kidston one ended up head down in a littler bin, I was not impressed to say the least x

  20. I do hate liplash, nothing worse than hair sticking to my lipstick!
    That blouse is such a beautiful shape on you, Alex. I can't believe the change in the weather, from blisteringly hot on Friday to needing woolly socks today...arghhhh!! xx

  24. You look a real cutie in this outfit!

  25. You're right it does deserve to be photographed once in a while.
    I do hate it when the wind plays havoc with your lip gloss... men, don't have these issues!

  26. I do love this querida. Such a nice outfit and perfection for this horrendous weather due to kick in again tomorrow. And who needs perfect lipstick when you look this good?

  27. I love the way the colours match each other and that dress is really pretty. That's a shame about the vintage festival, when I heard about it I thought it would have been brilliant. xxx

  28. N'arr there is something so satisfying about matching even the littlest details of an outfit, love this brolly sweets! I bought one last week which was a bit of a revelation (normally I'm a hood-up-and-run sort of girl), and it's clear so you can actually see where you're going!!! .. Well I was amazed :) ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad
