Anyway, after clearing up, I met Alex and we headed down to meet Sarah, Rosie and Gem at Sarah's house for the weekend full of cakes and picnicking as we had tickets for the Proms at Warwick Castle. It was rather lovely to catch up with these girls; the last time I saw them all was back in Norbury Manor. I was also rather excited to meet super dressmaking fiend, Roisin as well.
Aside from eating plenty of cakes, we had lots of fun wandering around Warwick, visiting the Thai food festival and lunching at a couple of pubs. Ok, yes, we seem to have spent the entire weekend eating. And laughing. And raiding about a million dresses Sarah was getting rid of (I may have come home with waaaay too many!) Saturday night was spent with a picnic listening to the orchestra and later watching fireworks, then Rosie and I trying to figure out how best to get everything home, like in the fox and river puzzle, which had us in fits of laughter.

Saturday's outfit was a chance to wear my recent French Connection sundress for a second time - I'm trying to get it's cost-per-wear down by remembering to wear it, as despite finding it on the John Lewis clearance rail, I'm not sure their idea of clearance bargains and mine quite tally.
I also took the opportunity to dig out a pair of shoes I've had for years but never worn. It's totally fine to wear winged sandals during day to day life, isn't it? I love this bag as well, it was a recent George purchase but the leopard on it makes me think of more vintage designs. I must admit I've managed to stain it since these pictures; yesterday's dress wasn't as colourfast as I'd hoped. I'm going to try and give it a good scrub down and hope it saves it.
I had such a lovely weekend, and can't wait to see all of these girls again. I think I'm going to have to give up cake for a while, though, to recover.
