The gardens were filled with the most beautiful blooms, fragrant roses, fallen petals and a wonderful kids play area with a ride on tractor and cafe for those in need of coffee or cream teas. In fact, it was quite tricky to persuade the kiddo to leave his new found treasures and when we got home I found a pocket full of pink petals stashed away.
The next day we woke to more sunshine and smiles and headed to our local cafe to pick up my must have caffiene fix. I wore the FatFace Ava Batik Fish Dress and teamed it up with my old pair of leather sandals. The soft floaty dress has pockets, that is great for running around with a small, also I love that you can tie it in at the waist to create a flattering shift dress style.
Everytime I wear this dress my I imagine balmy Greek Islands in the med, walking along sandy shores under a burning sunset *sigh* it's definitely creating some wanderlust. If I did manage to tear myself away this summer I know I would be keen to let my legs see some vitimin D, and these super cute cotton chino shorts and colour matching Southwold Linen T-shirt would be the first things I pack. I can't resist a bit of blush and it always reminds me of my fave 80's film, Pretty in Pink!
Now I don't know about you, but I have been super eager to try out the hottest fashion trend from the Spring/Summer catwalks, yes I am talking about the mid-length leg! Whether it's floaty cullottes that float your boat or Denim Capri Jeans, everyone seems to be wearing them or have an opinion on them. I've always stuck to skinnies as they are my fail safe style and I love the slick Opal Blue super skinnies from FatFace. I promise you won't find a comfier denim to pop your legs into, but rather than play it safe I decided to try out a new look and teamed up a super floaty Landstone Linen Swing Vest with a pair of these cool retro wide legged capri jeans and my faithful leopard print jacket. What do you think? Can I pull it off? Paul isn't so sure but I love the look, especially with my chunky platform sandals and I think it's a great one for a night out with the girls, sipping cocktails outdoors.Have you seen anything for to add to your summer wardrobe? I've already spotted another dress that I can't wait to try from FatFace. *This post is written in collaboration with FatFace. All words and opinions are 100% my own.
