Hello sunshine! It's so nice to get my summer dresses out again, and to lose the black tights finally. This dress is another perennial favourite of mine - it was super cheap in tk maxx years ago when I was at uni but I always fall in love with it each summer. Here's how I wore it in 2010 and here in 2009, so it really has been around for a while!

The shoes are the tallest I own - but they are surprisingly sturdy, so I don't feel too unsafe on them. My boyfriend always panics a bit when I wear thm though as he is convinced I am going to break my ankle. They aren't a pair you want to be wearing when you've had a drink or two admittedly!

They're lovely shoes, and I really need to master this scarf look, I always end up looking silly when I try to wear one like this.

This is so pretty. I am horribly upset the sun seems to have disappeared again though, I am so fed up of tights!!

I really like the cut and details of your dress. Might pop into TK Maxx to see if they have any other surprising gems :)

I love those shoes Harriet!! I think you look lovely. I actually pulled on the black tights again today - the weather is so odd! Hope the warmer weather comes back soon!
