Your songs remind me of swimming..

Carmela Dress: Lindy Bop
Dolly Mixture heels: Irregular Choice
Cardigan, tights: H+M // Bag: Aldo*

It's totally acceptable to have a more than one dress with swimmer print, yes? Forget flamingoes, I think my obsession has moved on and is just about anything swimmer print. This dress is one of my newest Lindy Bop additions;. the Carmela. This, I'm told, will be restocked in June.

Although I know a red cardigan would have been the safe, nautical-inspired choice here, I decided on a coral one instead, and to use the colours in the print of the swim caps on the dress, as I kind of feel as though I've been just adding a red cardigan to everything, of late. 

These Dolly Mixture heels are a pair which I've not worn very often since winning them on eBay for a song. A little lower, and with a wider design than a lot of my Irregular Choice collection, they're incredibly comfortable to wear. And polka dot tights, which have become my new staple. 

It's been a challenging week thus far, but I'm pleased that we're almost at the end. My weekend plans are coming together and include a couple of things to look forward to, so that's keeping me smiling, along with the fact that I've managed a new PB with my running this week. 


  1. Oh, Char! This dress is gorgeous on you. Yes, it's totally acceptable to own more than one dress with swimmers on, so why have I shunned the Emily & Fin dress and Lindy Bop dress because I bought a swim-print dress last summer? I don't know. Can't believe it's sold out so quickly! Will definitely be adding it to my wishlist!

    1. Thanks so much, I really love it and it's a size smaller than I'd thought I would need so that's always a good thing, too. It's coming back in June..!

  2. It looks really lovely!!!! I really like the swimmer print!!! gorgeous!!x

    1. Thanks - I think it might be my favourite swim print!

  3. You can never have too many swimmers prints or red cardigans! They're classic. I love this dress, and it looks like it was made for you. You look awesome! I really want to add this one to my collection, but it's out of stock of my size, so I'll have to wait and hope I'll get one in June. xx

  4. I couldn't believe how quickly the new LB stuff went. I had no money, so waited a few days and most of it had gone in my size. I managed to get this one in the size down, but it was too tight. By the time it arrived I'd already stalked and found my size anyway, but there's other stuff I've missed out on. I absolutely love this dress though, the print is so cute and I like the material. Dolly Mixture are a favourite of mine, even though they are lower than my usual.
