Among the cherries

Dress: Downstairs at Topshop (old)// sandals: Marypaz (Spanish brand)// sunglasses: Primark

I've had this dress is my wardrobe for about three years- another one of those buys you quite like at the time, then decide you're not that keen.. Still the print is quite sweet so I'm going to keep it (having taken a bag of old clothes to the charity shop this morning).
So nice to have some clear blue sky for once! Spent most of the afternoon over Highgate Wood, melting. And have spent a lot of time since Friday watching the (rather extensive) Glastonbury coverage on the BBC.. cannot believe Pulp played the Park Stage!
I need to start sorting everything that's coming back to my mum's with me as I'm moving in under 2 weeks now- still mixed feelings as living in such a small flat with a parent is very trying (we're going to need some ground rules Rachel- I'm 25 next week not 15 and going to crazy parties. In fact my mum has more of a social life than me).

  2. I love your dress, the print is lovely. It's been so hot in London recently, I got the tube to Bond street and practically melted, and there was no way I was going to go into Primark at marble arch!

    Good luck with moving into the flat with your mum, I'm sure she'll appreciate having you around :-).

    Ps, with bloglovin I'm not sure if you're meant to know who's following you or not, so it's a bit weird in that sense.

  18. I love the simplicity of this look! Especially against the green car. ;) I just posted a dress similar to this, which has a print people often assume is cherries, though it's actually flowers.

    I prefer yours, though. Cherries are one of the freshest summer prints. :)

  23. I'm glad you found yourself liking the dress again because it's an awesome print. And those tasselled sandals are great.

  24. Definitely hold onto that frock! When you get (really) bored of it you could always try to turn it into a skirt? That print is too sweet to waste. Hope you enjoyed Pulp! I tried to get into the Park but it was RAMMED, gonna have to catch up on tele too :) ♥ Claire @ Jazzpad

  25. oh, I love this cuty-cute dress! cherry are so nice and tasty. In fact, I'd love to eat a cherry now.
    as for living with parents... I think it's not so bad after all if you feel ready. Some people feel happy about it (like coming back to childhood and such). But honestly, if I were you, I'll freak me out!
