dress: (old) Motel// sandals: Topshop// bag: Topshop// cycling shorts: H n M


I look like I have short hair, the side plait clearly back fired! Hence the last photo where my hair is actually visible. The dress seems to get shorter every time I wear it, hence the cycling shorts underneath, which D thought looked like I was wearing suspenders. Perfect for a family barbecue then. The sandals are a recent purchase with a Westfield voucher I had- quite comfy to wear although after a few drinks easy to slip out of (you know when your foot misses the base of the shoe and you nearly fall over. A lot).

Want to make the most of the bank holiday- perhaps heading to the 19 Princelet Street Open Day, if I can get up from the sofa that is.

  19. Love the side plait! My hair seems to have decided that it wants to be in a side ponytail ALL the time and won't stay straight - most annoying.

  25. What a unique look! I think it's really neat how you paired tights with sandals and made it look amazing. Due to my shortness I don't know if I could pull that off but I love what you did!

  33. Sadly I haven't read the Game of Thrones books! I'd never heard of them before the series sadly, and now I don't want to read them because I don't want any spoilers for the series :P I'll probably read them over the summer though, just to get my daily Jon Snow fix, haha.
    You look so lovely in these pictures! I share your short hair woes - whenever I attempt a side plait it just looks like I've got something sticking out of the side of my head :) you pull it off far far better than me! xx

  39. I love the shorts underneath! Its brilliant. I'm totally going to do that with the shorts poking out next time I'm biking in a dress.

    ReplyDelete
  40. That dress is so pretty! I usually wear biking shorts underneath dresses too, but never thought of having them show! I think the side plait looks lovely, too.
