In celebration of the warm weather, I’m heading to a large garden party/barbecue as that’s the first thing most English people do when the sun shows. I know it’s going to be quite warm later today so I’m wearing one of my favourite stripe dresses. I wore this dress to an engagement party in 2013, and it’s really hard to wear a statement dress again, and to a different occasion; but I adore this dress because of it’s very simple style and thin fabric to keep me cool. The dress actually came with a belt, but I chose to go without it as I think the pattern is broken by the change in direction without a blue belt. My wedges are some of my favourite heels because they’re incredibly easy to walk in which is the first thing I look for, and the inside of them is almost cushioned so it’s really like walking on air. This is always a bonus because heels can become can uncomfortable after an hour or so standing, so there are perfect for today because I can walk on grass and have the ability to walk around all day without getting irritated with pain.
My teeny tiny bag is one of my favourites for days out where I don’t need many essentials, other than my phone, purse and throat sweets after the amount of shouting I did yesterday during England’s frustrating game. I adore this bag because it is leather so it’s tough and durable but it’s very light, and has a strap long enough to wear as a shoulder bag and an across-the-body bag. I also love that the strap can be detached, so you get a much smaller bag with a cute handle to carry around on a warm day like today.
