May is one of my favourite months, it's the time of year that the winter wardrobe gets swapped over and I start making a few cheeky purchases in anticipation of summer, and there's some bargains to be had this weekend.
As I write this I am sitting in bed with a fresh cup of jasmine tea, the birds are chirping outside and the cockrels are crowing in a neighbouring garden, what better way to spend a bank holiday morning? I'm not doing too well health wise so it's just as well I can make the most of it and actually enjoy being stuck in bed.
Looking at the pink petal carpet of my garden makes me realise that the only thing that makes me feel sad about May is how quickly the beautiful blossoms disappear. They don't last long enough in my opinion, especially as blossom trees make amazing back drops for outfit photos. A few weeks ago I did manage to get out to take some photos in one of my favourite places in Surrey and in this amazing blossom print 50's style dress by Chi Chi clothing. I've had my eye on this fantastic print for a while so I was so happy when Chi Chi sent it to me to blog about. I'm in love with all the embroidered detailing. It's so dreamy and perfect to last through summer and for many more to come. I've matched it up with my vintage espadrills that used to belong to my mum. I love how we have the same size feet, I'm always borrowing her shoes!
I found this necklace in my craft box, ready to be cut up and used for something else. It's sat in there for years, maybe since I was 13, thrown in there when I didn't like it anymore. It's funny how our tastes change, I stumbled upon this again by chance and love it again.
I hope you all have a fantastic bank holiday weekend. I'm looking forward to catching up with what everyone's been up too and rewatching the O.C!
Stunning as always!ReplyDelete
The dress is absolutely beautiful, and the style of it is so lovely on you. The photos are marvellous and your hair looks fantastic!
I agree about blossoms not hanging out long enough.
