The yellow stuff, my favourite crop of them all; oil seed rape has the most phenomenally bright colour and never fails to lift my spirits. In terms of scent I would describe it as “sneeze” flavour, not everyone's cup of tea by all means but one which immediately morphs me back in time to pre-teens when I would hack around the countryside on ponies with my best friend. Ah, this crop certainly takes me to a happy place.

The dress....THE DRESS! It's a beauty, isn't it? The niftily titled Elegant Keyhole Neckline Polka Dot Sleeveless Chiffon Maxi Dress from was one that caught my eye as being something so different with it's gathered neckline and flowing fabric.
I was a little worried that the 'one size' fitting would mean it wouldn't look right but the nature of how to wear the dress means that it will comfortably fit the smallest of frames up to at least a 12 for the same loose fit. It goes over the head, you tie the neck and belt up; the belt is completely loose so you can place wherever feels best which is great. I'm around 5'4 and the dress looks far shorter on me than the model but I quite like the length on me.

Aside from the delicious frill to the neck, great shoulder reveal (not sure I've ever worn this style before but loving it), wonderful swoosh to the fabric there also happens to be the price £8.11 is the selling price (plus postage) and I can't really believe it! Perfect for daywear, evenings and occasions and as a beach cover-up too, it's pretty versatile and also comes in wine red. Everything else on their website is priced really low too, there are loads of pieces I have my eye already.

I went out solo to get these pictures a week ago, armed with the big lens, remote and tripod after earmarking this spot the day before. What I hadn't banked on was that to get the pictures I had in mind, I would have to be further away from the camera than the remote would work at. The old '10 second self timer' came into it's own, with me setting it, doing the 8 second dash and waiting for the shutter then head back to repeat. The exercise did keep me warm in the cool breeze so I guess all was not lost although I sincerely hope nobody saw me running back and forth like I was on a bit of elastic for the best part of 15 minutes by a field.

One of my favourite set of pictures in ages, I think everything just works. Are you a fan of the dress too?
Thanks to Sammydress for sending me this dress to review, all opinions my own as always
