Get that country bumpkin vibe

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

Hello everyone! Hello from the most beautiful field of pink flowers! We drove past this and couldn't resist stopping to admire. I stood in the field entrance and smiled, who can frown when the countryside is so alive with colour? I believe it must all be red campion in bloom but as for why, well I really don't know.

This is a dress I bought recently from TK Maxx and it may still be in store, I've just checked and if you want it in an L then it's online reduced to £11 here. I bought it for £15 from recollection which I still considered to be a very reasonable price for something so perfect for allll summer long. The write up goads 'get that country bumpkin vibe' don't mind if I do....
The gingham backdrop with floral print, cute gathered waist, tied short sleeves, collar, ruffled neckline, lined swishy skirt and modest length all add up to utter summer dress perfection!

 I wore my vintage leather belt, ankle boots, bucket and spade necklace.
The sleeve ties were cause for a giggle as one slipped undone while we were out and I couldn't manage to re-tie it alone so had to ask C to sort it for me, however he ties in a completely different manner to me so they were non-identical bowes. I suspect his has a more military influence but who even knew there was more than one way to tie a bow?

It makes me so happy. All the colours, the liveliness and hope.
On that note I'd like to say a really heartfelt thank you to everyone who took the time to vote and for all your messages of support for the Country Style Blog Award over the last weeks, it's meant so much. The winner and runner up were announced last night and they were very deserving of the recognition.

Here's to all the colour and hope!
Take care,

    I love the dress, it looks so much better than on the hanger, and I love the addition of the belt.


I love to hear your comments xx
