Drawing strawsWednesday, June 03, 2015
The warm weather has been appearing in fits and starts, the wind seems to have got up something wicked the last few days, not to mention the sporadic downpours and temperatures dwindling in the low teens. However, in a sunny spell at the weekend I dressed for summer with all the optimism that the hot weather is just around the corner. This dress is one that caught my eye with it's almost sixties style geometric print, in my head it was more of a boxy tunic but in reality it's the very opposite. I rather like the fit, it's more of a traditional style summer dress. A little bit of a summer dream has come true with my accessories! I'm in love with my straw hat*, it's perfect; a good fit, a sturdy but floppy wide brim... ah. This is going to be worn a lot through summer! I'm pretty sure you'll never guess where it's from so I'll spill the beans and tell you it's from Mountain Warehouse .
My straw bag is cute as pie, non? The handles are sturdy and the lining is secure so overall it's far more robust than I initially gave it credit for, making it a most practical choice while the sun is shining.
What summer dreams do you have hidden away?
Thanks to Mountain Warehouse for sending me the straw hat to review
