Featuring my Favourite – a Pan Collar!

I was so incredibly excited to wear this dress today! I actually won it (!) from Secret Lake Vintage, via Fancy Fine. I was instantly captivated by it’s pan collar charm – they are my ultimate fashion weakness! I found it was the perfect dress to wear during our afternoon parkside walk. It’s been quite an exhausting week so far for both Barnaby and myself – I’ve been working, and he’s been unwell; so a lazy walk seemed like the ideal solution. It was a treat-filled day too, as we discovered both an enormous tree stump, and an overgrown haven which looked slightly like a foliage-based grotto! It was truly picturesque, as it was beside the river – so I hid inside and spied on a cluster of ducks swimming past, completely care-free!

I paired the dress with my ASOS cat eye sunglasses, and my beautiful cream-coloured Lotta From Stockholm clogs. Remember, it’s not too late to win your own! I teased my hair into a 1960s style beehive, which meant I had to carefully avoid overhanging tree branches in the grotto! Eek!
