Swan song..

Dress: Lindy Bop // Cardigan: F+F
Petticoat: Hell Bunny // Shoes: Irregular Choice // Stole, Bag: Accessorize

A new dress for a new week, always seems like a surefire way to cheer up a Monday morning, don't you think? This is one of the long-awaited Lindy Bop border prints - the Delta swan dress. There are frankly heaps of the new LB dresses which I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for, but I pounced on this one just as soon as it hit the website, for fear of it selling out. 

I'm pleased I took the plunge, to be honest: it's a lovely dress. A nice, thick cotton, with a pretty border print. It comes with a matching belt, but I think someone must have been drunk when they stitched the belt loops onto this one - the belt would be right at bra strap level if I used them, so I just belted it around my waist instead and will unpick the original loops.

Although the weather over the weekend took a turn for the auntumnal, with plenty of rain, today has started out cooler (hence the tights and the fur stole) but has turned a lot warmer. I decided to pick out the colours of the floral print of the dress with my shoes. brooch (nabbed from a Primark bolero) and my picnic basket bag from Accessorize. 

The shoes are new (to me) too; a recent eBay find. I wish I knew what the style was called, but love the mix of texture and the teeny bows. 

How's your week looking? I'm feeling super positive about mine, to be honest. Which is lovely.
