So, this weekend. I was expecting so much more sun! It was pretty grey round here but I guess the upside was that it wasn't cold. I kind wish it worked the other way round too, sunny but not hot, cause I really can't cope with too much heat. Thankfully I managed to catch the couple of hours of good sunshine on Saturday night before we headed out for dinner with mine and Pete's families. Us kids paid for the parents as our Father's Day present to the dads and it was a really lovely night out. Sadly the restaurant was really busy and very loud so it wasn't the most sociable of occasions, but the food was amazing and everyone had a great time.
This isn't actually what I wore out to dinner but was my outfit from earlier in the day and I managed to get my lovely Pete to snap some pics in the back yard before I changed into some fancier for the evening. I bought this shirt last Sunday when I went shopping with my friend Lill, when I saw it in H and M I made a grab for it straight away much to Lill's amusement - I just couldn't help myself the print is so silly, cute and naughty! It's a size large from the regular section rather than their plus size line and fits me just fine, it's a nice stretchy, fine tee and is very soft. For £7.99 I think it was a bit of a bargain, as was the cute pink basket bag that was £5.99 and I had picked up a few weeks ago again from H and M but on a trip to Sheffield. Pete dubbed it 'the most useless bag in history' as it won't protect anything from the rain and things could fall out of the holes, but hey I love it cause it's silly and bright and unusual so I don't care!
The skirt I bought at the start of the year and have featured before but I really wanted to team it with this tee and bag and the sandals are also old, like a few years old in fact, but I love them and wear them every Summer and also have them in purple. The sunglasses were gifted to me by the lovely owner of Claireabella's Closet last December at a vintage fair that we were both doing. I actually hadn't worn them until now but they seemed the perfect match with this kooky ensemble and I think they're pretty fabulous.
