|boat print dress: laura ashley|
|'my mum's garden' heels: office|
I'll have you know that boats are one of my favourite prints at the moment; my favourites bar is filling up with boat print dresses as I prepare to embrace the annual nautical trend once again.
So imagine my delight when I was trawling through eBay listings a few months back and came across this beautiful vintage Laura Ashley number. It's no secret that I'm a big Laura Ashley fan, too = I have almost an entire wardrobe full of LA dresses, some of them dating back to decades ago.
So needless to say, I couldn't resist a cheeky last-minute bid on it, and was pleased when it turned up, although being white, I put it away for sunnier times..Cue the first day of Spring, where I decided to drag it out of hiding once more. After some strategic safety-pinning (I'm apparently a fair bit smaller than I was in the Winter) and some shoe-choosing, I went for this pair of Office heels in similar colours..
Anyone else ready to embrace Spring, whatever the weather may bring? I'm getting all excited about finally getting some plants into the ground at the allotment, car boot sales in actual decent weather, and even days out without the coat! (Well, maybe not, but one can dream..!)
