|Clio dress: Lindy Bop // Cardigan: New Look|
|Tights: Meadham Kirchhoff x Topshop // Bowtiful heels: Irregular Choice|
|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!
