Dreaming of Summer


I have been feeling a little "out of sorts" for a few days now and add to that the depressing weather with dull dank days and high winds, I have not ventured out unless really necessary. I quite envy those blogging friends who have experienced snow recently in the USA and Europe as I think I would have preferred it to the mild, damp conditions here.

I have not got any new charity shop bargains to share with you this week but I have gone through some pictures Hannah took back in the summer which I didn't get around to posting and found one of this dress. It is not one of my favourites as I think it makes me look a little large, even with the decorative belt.

It was nearly new - starting its life in New Look - and I bought it because it was a length that I like. It has a floral pattern and is sleeveless. It cost me £4.00. I am not sure if I will keep it for the coming summer - maybe if I find some dresses which are more complimentary to my body, I will donate it back so that the charity will benefit again and someone else may enjoy it.

What do you think?

  1. Whatever you decide, I enjoyed seeing something floral and summery in the midst of these cold, gray, wintery days.

  2. The print of this dress is so pretty. If you don't love it though, don't keep it!

  3. It is such a pretty print! I think the way we feel in clothes is more important that how we look so if you don't feel confident in it, it's not worth keeping!

    Hope you are having a lovely week :)

  6. Thanks a pretty dress and it looks so cheerful in the midst of winter fashions! :) We don't get snow here on the Pacific coast either (though there has been some an hour inland), but it has been very rainy and windy today.

    1. Thank you Paige - we have not had snow for about 5 years but they do get it further north and east.

  8. Oh, this dress makes me miss summer! It's actually been pretty warm here for the last couple of weeks, but not quite that kind of weather, and I know it won't last. Thanks for sharing at the Grace + Lace Linkup!
