Perfect for a Lazy Day!

I have been such a busybody this week! Never ever have I felt so incredibly grateful for the weekend; I only wish it was longer! To celebrate a day off, and sunny weather too, we ventured out for an afternoon walk. The dress I’m wearing was courtesy of United Styles – and actually designed by me! I adore 1960s fashion, so tried to encompass it in my design through adding a white pan collar and matching sleeves. Yellow is my favourite colour ever, and I was smitten with the print. It reminds me of hot weather and summery picnics; so I was sure to accessorize it with a Modcloth peanut butter and jam (jelly!) sandwich wallet. My opaque white tights are from ASOS, and the bag is a vintage Kodak. I wore 1980s boater shoes which were so perfect for tiptoeing through the still-wet grass; pure bliss!
