Bettie Page Jazmin dress and Melissa Amazonas sandals
Flash face! I love this dress, but it's impractical for the cold weather because it's too fitted to layer up. It was so mild on Friday night that I was more than comfortable in it, and I was happy to say hello to an old friend. The pub was brilliant - just a few good friends, a couple of drinks and lots of chats. I finished the night off with a mug of peppermint tea and talking over the evening with Nic in bed, and the blues were thoroughly chased away!
Saturday was rainy but mild, and Nic and I were in the happy position of having no plans at all for the day. We did a wee bit of spring cleaning, put together some bags of books and clothes for the charity shop, and ventured out for a dander through rainy Leamington. Just because I could, I got a bit dressed up:
Limb Great Outdoors Retro dress and Bertie Sardinia shoes - accessorised there with bags for the charity shop and an H&M umbrella!
I always say "oh, I love this dress" about all of my dresses, and it's always true, but I am actually a little bit in love with this dress from Limb. I wrote about these dresses last year on About Your Dress and I've had a hankering for one ever since so when I was at 52 Greek Street at lunchtime on Thursday, I succumbed. At full price these frocks are very expensive, and more than I can really countenance spending on a dress. Half price convinced me, though and I'm glad it did. This dress is beautifully, beautifully handmade. Needless to say, I love the Alexander Henry Great Outdoors fabric, which is covered in sassy ladies frolicking by a lake and in a log cabin:
Nic and I spent the rest of Saturday afternoon reading, listening to jazz and drinking tea. It was bliss! Together we baked a banana and fruit cake, and in the evening we watched a few episodes of Fringe. All very relaxing and eminently enjoyable.
Today, the sky looked like this over Leamington:
Anyway. It's Sunday night and I have to be up disgustingly early for work tomorrow so I shall leave you here - but I'll be back later in the week.
