Screw the Weather

Friday, 10 May 2013

I should have known that being organised and packing away all my winter clothes would come back to bite me in the arse. A few days after I did it, the weather promptly dropped ten degrees and it started raining.  It hasn't stopped since.   *shakes fist at the sky*  My wardrobe full of pretty summer frocks and sandals just isn't designed for this weather but I'm going to have to wear them anyway!

Luckily the thermal black tights and sensible cardigans remained within reach.  When I layer up with them, it makes the floaty dress with cut-out detail seem a bit more weather-appropriate, doesn't it?  In fact, I don't think I'll actually be wearing this frock when it's sunny. The tan lines would be most odd!

I'm very pleased with the new shoes. I've officially given up buying cheap, crappy flats that fall apart after a few wears.  I'm going to invest in decent ones, made of proper fabric (preferably leather) and with a real sole. If they have a bit of cute detail on them as this pair do, so much the better!

Dress - Primark
Cardi - Hawkshead
Flat shoes - Emma Go

It's the first cut-out dress I've ever owned. Inappropriate for an old woman?  I don't know.  I was just so pleased to find something in Primark that wasn't made of vile polyester that I had to buy it.


  1. You look like Mary Poppins :) I admire your stance on flats, but I tend to find with my oddly-shaped clodhoppers that the less-structured shoes are better for me as they can mould to my feet :\

  2. Cut out dresses are inappropriate for an old woman butr since you are not one, it's perfectly kooky and gorgeous.

  3. Oh my goodness that dress is stunning! Think the cut-out would be super indecent on me sadly! Lovely shoes.

  4. Old woman?? You're 'avvin a larf!! That dress looks fab on you.
    Yep, the weather is blooming awful; the sky is blue but it's not the 'fluffy-clouds-in-a-blue-sky' sort of way, more my language! Just get so far with the garden are get rained off!
    Hope you've got good things planned for the weekend?
    Z xx

  5. Gorgeous dress! It that really Primark? Really, really?
    The shoes are cute too, totally with you on giving up on cheaper shoes, having ditched a load recently I'm going for quality not quantity.

  6. that dress is so nice, I was expecting it to be some £60 dress from Miss Selfridge or something. Also I need those shoes but they don't have my size :( xx

  7. I saw this dress on Saturday in Primark and was very much smitten with the print! Wasn't sure of the cut out detailing, but you've convinced me otherwise. Those shoes are fab xxx
