Feeling dotty and bold

I'm not usually a black & white kinda' girl, but I might make an exception if it's a bold print partnered with a bright bold pop of colour - especially if that colour is pink.....

So I completely fell in love with this chevron dress from Johnnie B (we'll quickly gloss over the fact that it's teen fashion and I left my teen years behind, ahem, a couple of decades ago...) - I adore the print - and the pink elbows :) There's no shortage of pink in my wardrobe, so accessorising is never going to be a problem! And when the kind people at Three sent me over a gorgeous dotty Kate Spade iPhone cover, I immediately thought of this dress as the perfect partner for some pics.

Oh and I thought it was time my zebra print pumps came out for a spin as well :)

Summer staycationing

Staycationing is new to me - why on earth have I not done this before?! I've had a blissful, restful week pottering around at home, working on projects I've been meaning to do for ages - and going out for lovely day trips. And all the while sleeping in my lovely comfy bed and not having to pack or unpack!! I highly recommend it :)

I'll save the day trips to Waterperry Gardens and the seaside for other posts. So in this episode, we spent a lovely day wandering around Woodstock, picnicking in Blenheim Palace grounds and finishing off the day with a trip around Yarnton Antiques Centre (which is utterly fabulous by the way - again, why have I not been before?!).

I also had a much needed hair cut (was it really January the last time? Oh dear...) and went out to take my new hair for a spin in a (relatively) new summer pastel outfit. Thanks to my lovely husband alpower for taking the pics of me :)
