Dance in the kitchen..

Another weekend seems to have whizzed by without a care. Mine had a fairly great start and I found myself feeling more positive than I have in a while. I caught up with friends, saw my Nan for coffee, dug over and planted up some of the allotment, fell asleep in front of the TV with one of my favourite people and managed to get 1.5 dresses made. 

In fact, all was going well until I was at the theatre on Sunday night and my horrible stomach pains came back. Still struggling to establish a cause, and it's still here today. I'm hoping that it passes soon as at the moment I'm in a lot of pain.

Onto more exciting things, though. I was recently treated to this dress from Book of Deer, which I've been so excited about, ever since I saw the preview pictures last year. The SS15 County Kitchen collection is finally available online and this beautiful jam print dress is, for me, the stand-out piece. 

I was just as impressed with it in real life, which is always good when a brand is new to you. I love the floaty nature of the fabric and the cut of the dress. It's long enough, which is always a winner with me - I think I'm passed that "is that a dress or a top?" phase, if indeed I ever went through that phase..

I added these silver tights to try and break up the matchy-matchy nature of these Topshop heels, which seem to be my go-to shoes at the moment. And I dug a bird necklace and my owl handbag out of their respective living quarters to try and finish things off.

  2. Oh how cute is that dress!!!! VERY! The necklace is beautiful too! I have been looking for ages at Ladybird likes collar clips and necklaces like that and swooning! You must have known since you fulfilled bird cravings with those lovely earrings- they were one of my favourite Christmas presents! I can't believe I missed that in Accessorise!x
    I DO hope the stomach pains cease or get diagnosed. Is there any remote possibility they are anxiety related? Do you have Polycystic ovaries at all because I know that can use some pains/issues xx

    1. I think the bird necklace is quite an old one, I received it as a gift a couple of years ago, I think. Thank you, I'm not sure whether they could be anxiety related? It's definitely stomach rather than reproductive area, though the doctors have told me that there's nothing else they are willing to try.

  3. What an unusual print, I wondered what it was at first. I hope you're feeling better soon.

  4. Another gorgeous outfit! Loving that dress and the colour theme. The necklace is adorable.

    It sounds like you've been so busy this weekend! Exhausted just reading about it! Haha! It's sucks you've been / are suffering from bad stomach pains. I suffer from bad stomach cramps at least once a week, mostly down to intolerance to foods, and they really are agony, so you have my sympathy. Hope you feel much better soon. xx

    1. I assume it must be something to do with food intolerance but I can't figure out a trigger. I have given up sugar for Lent, which has meant cutting out almost all processed food, which I thought would help me but it seems it hasn't :(
