It's Still Summer

Although it is the 11th of September we are still enjoying warm sunny weather and I am able to keep wearing my summer outfits.

I bought this dress for £3.50 a few weeks ago. It is sleeveless so I do need to wear a cardigan with it during the evenings when it gets cooler but I like the pattern of blue flowers on a green background. It also just below knee length with a high neck line so that I don't have to worry about modesty issues.

I will definitely keep this dress for next summer when it will get a lot of wear.

This look is an unusual one for me but I thought I would try it. I don't normally wear long skirts but I needed to attend a function with my husband last weekend (a sort of garden party) and most of the ladies would be wearing semi formal outfits. I never really enjoy these events and never know what to wear but when a came across this skirt for £3.00 in a charity shop I just knew it was meant to be mine!

It went well with a floral design top and I was pleased with the overall outfit.

  1. Your dress is lovely but that maxi skirt is my favourite - you know I'm a big fan of maxi skirts for pretty much every occasion! :)
