I remember saying when I first got this dress that it would be perfect for picnics, and it really still does. Sadly, I don't have any picnics scheduled today, so I dressed it for work instead with a black and pink cardigan and almost matching shoes.

One thing that my #irregularchoicechallenge is doing is making me think about what I wear most often. These heels are fab, as I think all of the recent perspex heel ones are, as well as being super comfortable. There seems to be one pair left on Let's Buy Shoes, (one of my favourite IC-selling haunts) so if you're a size 39, snap them up - you won't regret it!

I couldn't resist this necklace when I popped into Asda (for something else entirely) last week. I don't often visit as it's a bit of a trek for me, and I don't rate their food quality, so if I do find myself there, I make sure to have a little look in their George section. I can't find a link for this necklace on their site, but it was £12 and I was rather taken by the cord detail.

Back to normality today with the start of the new term and therefore our first guides meeting (of my last term altogether). It's been a hard decision and clearly hasn't gone down very well with some of the other leaders in the area, who decided to disregard my plans to tell the group and drop the bombshell on them early, despite my asking them not to. Annoying, much? All that's done is make me sure that I've made the right decision in moving on as it gets me away from this controlling force. But it's a bit sad, nonetheless. We are rising above it anyway, and have plenty of excitement planned for our last term.

  3. Yay for this dress!!!!! The shoes and cardie go so well-I also have tights that could join the party-similar print.
    Pretty sure we are shoe twins if you bought yours about 2 years ago-£12?

    1. Yep, they're the ones. I'd forgotten about them but was having a clear out from under the bed at the weekend and found them in a storage box.

    1. Thank you, it's been one of those outfits I liked when I left the house but not later on in the day- not sure if the cardigan was too long for my liking.

  5. I love that dress; it's so pretty! I really have a thing for gingham at the mo, but still don't own a single piece. I need to change that, I think! Sorry to hear how the other leaders have reacted to the news. How childish! It sounds like you've made the right decision to move on. I hope they don't make the rest of your time there a nightmare. xx

    1. There are so many pretty gingham pieces about at the moment.
      They're thankfully keeping their distance now. I'm determined not to let them ruin the next few weeks for me.

  6. Such a pretty dress and necklace, you look ace! Sounds like you will be well rid of those leaders, it's just a shame they have ruined it for you :(

    1. It's a real shame because I feel torn between trying to encourage someone to take the unit over so that it doesn't have to close, and warning them off doing it because they're going to have the same controlling problems I've been having.
