What I Wore: Hummingbird Heartbeat

dress - New Look
sunglasses - Primark (mens)

Not a very relevant title, but one of my favourite songs at the moment. Well, I love Katy Perry's discography in it's entirety... So being British it is customary that I begin my post with a comment about the weather: it's bloody gorgeous! I'm on study leave at the moment so I've just been sitting out in the garden - doing a tiny bit of studying - but mostly reading my book (11.22.63 by Stephen King) and getting a bit of a tan. I always love a bit of sun, especially when it's as warm as this, but it really wasn't expected and I definitely find my self struggling to cope at times! I need to make a conscious effort to keep drinking lots of water to keep my migraines at bay, but as long as I remember I'm fine. Need to get used to it for my holidays this year!
Anyway, I wore this pretty summer dress for a day in the sun with my friends (including Amy who's blog you should follow) which was lovely. I bought this dress (along with about 5 others) in the New Look sale this time last year and it's one of my summer staples, it's so easy to throw on and go. I love New Look for summer, they have some really nice dresses at affordable prices - always a plus. I was browsing the sale in New Look on Tuesday but was a bit disappointed, I did see a few skirts I liked that weren't in the sale but they didn't really suit me! However as I was leaving I spotted my dream bag that I just had to have. It's lovely and roomy and a gorgeous colour, perfect for summer. Can't quite bring myself to use it yet as it's been officially dubbed my 'holiday bag' so I'll save it for Berlin!
Anyway, I hope everyone's enjoy the lovely weather, I'm off to watch One Tree Hill series one with my glorious ceiling fan!

xoxo
