Outfit: Fun in the Sun

Yesterday was really warm and sunny so I spent the afternoon lounging in The Meadows, reading a book and people watching. My flat doesn’t have a garden, but I live literally three seconds away from here, so that definitely makes up for it.

Look at the tiny little plane!

I went shopping on Monday and one of the things I bought was this floral dress from Motel. I love the shape of it, and it sits so nicely in real life. The tag claimed it was a dress but it is rather short, so I put on a pair of white New Look leggings underneath.

I love The Meadows in the summertime, it’s always full of people having fun and enjoying the sunshine. You can just about make out in the picture above a guy behind the tree who had his guitar with him, awesome!

The sandals are from Primark and I got my sunglasses in the ASOS sale last year for only £1! It’s so hard to take photos of yourself outside, so I had to take the outfit photos back at the flat.

Notice the sunburnt right arm. The rest of me is fine, I don’t know why only that arm decided to turn bright red!

    Oooh, I wish I was on that plane! Really like the white leggings – I've never given them a thought before, but they seem like an awesome summery alternative to everybody's staple, the black legging!
