Want To See Someplace Beautiful? 

How did I spend my day? Oh, you know – venturing down mossy pathways, peering into a key-shaped goldfish pond, just the usual.. Well, it’s not quite the norm – but it was a wonderful way to spent an overcast afternoon! I wish I could claim this beautifully manicured garden as my own, but in reality it belongs to a friend’s parents. My actual backyard is in much more of a unkempt state – think less ‘Alice in Wonderland’, and more ‘Grey Gardens’ – in fully overgrown mode of course!

For today’s pretty little jaunt, I wore a gingham ASOS dress with the sweetest cut out detail on the chest. It’s actually not the first time I’ve shown off this dress – I wore it once for graduation, and again in windy Wellington with a transparent raincoat. This is the first time I’ve properly shown it  off though – isn’t it a dream! I paired it with mustard tights and vintage buckle boots. My teeny tiny bag is also vintage, and I thought it looked rather at home beside its namesake rose bush!
