We’ve had snippets of nice weather (with a good dose of rain thrown in for good measure!) and I have to say i’m still freezing (I was sitting with Audrey’s Peppa pig blanket around my shoulders as I typed, resisting the urge to put the heating on…in JUNE!!)

I really want to start wearing some of my summery dresses, without tights if poss! We are off on holiday in a couple of weeks with a group of friends so fingers crossed summer will be in full swing by then. Anyone got any inside info on the weather for July?!

What we wore…

Me; Shirt -TopShop/ Jeans –Next/Belt- Dorothy Perkins/ Shoes- Lotta from Stockholm/ Necklace- D&D

Audrey; Top M&Co/ Jacket Gap/ Trousers Next/ Sandals Monsoon

Exciting News!

Bright red/coral stretch cotton for making the […]
