Dress: Topshop (old)//Boater: Monki//Socks: Topshop//Flatforms: Miss Ikon

These photos were snapped in about 20 seconds on my iPhone, but I quite like how they turned out with the glare from the sun. Talking of sun, there was rather a lot of it this weekend, and I wore this to the park on Saturday. D and I only had £2 between us and could only afford one ice cream (a Twister)- £1.60! Back in the day I remember most ice creams being around the 50p mark..
Sunday it was even hotter and we went to Gladstone Park where there was music and stalls and food (they call it Gladstonbury rather hilariously). Then there were cocktails in the pub- always a good way to finish a weekend (and start it of course).

  1. I have to say cocktails are good ALL of the time. They don't feel like proper drinking so I think this is ok. And I looovvee your "socks&sandals" so so cute, this confirms that I can rock my flatform sandals well into autumn ! Have a lovely day :) M xo

  2. Everything about this outfit is so cute, I love the socks! I also remember the days when ice creams were cheaper, everything seems so expensive now! Not had a twister in ages, Fabs are the way to go!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! That dress looks like it was made for you and you've styled it beautifully!
    Ugh, I hate the ice-cream price hike! Especially since a '99' now costs £1.50! xx

  6. It's crazy how much food has gone up in price isn't it?! The scary part is that prices will always go up, if only wages went up to match...

    That is the cutest dress ever! I love the print & the back detail is fun xo

  8. This is possibly one of my favourite outfit of yours!

    Although I may be young, I am still shocked at how expensive ice reams are! The only place you can get them for 50c is at McDonalds these days haha

  40. Oooh these are good photos for an Iphone I have to say! Love love love this outfit, you pull off the cute look very well! The dress, hat and socks and sandals combo is very cute seaside princess! And lolly prices are a scandal these days. I remember the days when they were hella cheap. Still, Twisters are classics!
