It looks like summer has finally arrived - well at least for a few days! I wore this outfit on Saturday to bask in the sunshine. It was such a nice day. Can't really go wrong with pie, mash and liquor, a BBQ and an evening spent in the beer garden. I brought this dress from Asos a good month ago but the weather never been nice enough to let me wear it. I adore the print on it and the cheeky little cut out back. I was trying to channel the 50s look with this outfit, although the plimsols were none to kind my my blistered feet! They were in agony! I think this bag may be my new favourite thing - i haven't been in Primark for two months! I think i'm coming down with something...

Did you all have a nice weekend? Go anywhere exciting?
