The boat dress






Dress: eBay, Purse: DKNY, Shoes: M&S, Hat: H&M, Shorts: AA

I had to find a day to wear this dress at some point this summer! I nabbed it from eBay last year and I couldn't have been happier! What is better than bright blue and little boats?! I decided to clash it with the pink shoes- another fave. I'm lucky to have some nice locations close to where I live for outfit shots lately, as I'm hardly go far from the house/office at the moment- so busy! Tomorrow is my 'leaving lunch' at work, although i don't leave until next week. It seems strange that 3 years of this PhD has suddenly come to an end! Lets just hope I pass the thing!

Thanks for all your lovely comments on the last posts from my picnic! I'll probably post more petticoat pictures soon enough- i want to wear it everyday! xx
