Outfit: A Striped Picnic

stripe dressstripey dressThis weekend the boyf and I took a break from unpacking and DIY to take a stroll around the local park. Of course, lots of posing and hamming it up for the camera was involved. We also packed a pretty flash of hot tea and the picnic rug. It really is the simple pleasures, isn’t it?

I have had a few requests for a house tour already. But I’m still unpacking! You know me, I collect A LOT of junk, so it is taking some time to find a home for it all. Plus, the house needs a bit of work to get it to our kind of prettiness. This is a little unfortunate as we were promised that it would repainted before we moved in. That’s estate agents for you! Always making things up.

Maybe, I will start off with some snippets, and maybe you guys can help me out with advice. In particular I have a hallway that needs a lot of love and creativity to give it life. Mmmm…we shall see. I know how fun it is to see how other people live so I’ll get some snippets coming your way soon.

Hope you had a wonderful and restful weekend!

    Aww, you’re so cute! I want a picnic too, hopefully the lovely weather sticks around (or I can come and crash one of yours). Hope there aren’t too many boxes left and you’re starting to feel at home xxx

    Love this dress! I think it’s the same shape as a plain navy one I’ve been eyeing up! Was planning to wear it with a very similar skinny red vintage belt I have!
    And your flask matches my tape measure which @SiobhanJC bought for me!

    You look so gorgeous and happy in these pictures! Great red satchel too. Picnics are one of my favourite things in the whole world.

    I wore the same dress from H&M to Cybher, but mine was fawn with white spots. I love it, I have the mint green one too! Bargain!
