I've got two left feet and I'm starting to cheat.

Picnic Basket Bag: Accessorize

Monday lunchtime and already I'm exhausted. Partly my own fault, as I've not had enough sleep this weekend what with having to stay awake all night at a guides sleepover at the prison on Friday evening and then staying up to watch as much of the 24 hours Le Mans live coverage as possible. 

Feeling less than inspired by the weather on the first official day of summer (yes, really), I decided to give my new Lindy Bop Clio dress a wear, along with these tights, which arrived to me via a blogsale this weekend. I totally missed the Meadham Kirchhoff x Topshop collection when it hit the shops (I'm never quick enough off the mark for these kinds of things) but these tights are superb so I'm glad I managed to find a pair eventually (thanks, Clare!).

As for the Clio dress, I'm also really glad I held out for this one rather than the Christie, which I'd considered when it hit the site. I really like the ric rac detail on this one. The cotton material is pretty thick - no need for a petticoat underneath as it keeps it's shape nicely - and the Venice print is super cute (I'm a sucker for a scenic print).

Also, my picnic basket bag definitely needed an outing, sunshine or no sunshine, along with some well-loved Irregular Choice heels. Happy Summer Solstice!

  1. It is such a lovely dress. I've really tried to be good and not buy all the lindybop dresses I have craved but I am sure I spend an equal amount of money on other things so I shouldve just gone for it!

    1. I do that quite often, telling myself not to spend money on something, but then end up with lots of smaller, cheaper things which I probably don't like as much.

  2. I'm so tempted to buy this! If it was a Paris print I'd have taken the plunge already.

    1. Oh, yes a Paris print would be awesome.

  3. I have this one, it's not a great fit on me (massively gaping at the armholes), but such a lovely print. I actually prefer the off the shoulder one to look at, but would never wear off the shoulder, so I was happy they did another version. Not convinced about the white hem, though it does match the collar and I like that part. I'm desperately seeking this bag. Wanted it all year, but couldn't pay full price and of course now I can't find it in any shops or online.

    1. Oh no, I don't think it was in my store (my sister was under strict instructions to get it for my birthday and bought it yonks in advance), but I@ll have a look for it in stores just in case. I'm tempted to remove the cream section at the bottom of this dress, to the ric rac.
