As a blogger, I think it is inevitable that you will have several items in your wardrobe that have quite a lot in common. This dress which I wore to Stow-on-the-Wold is one of those those... brown, floral, cord... sounding familiar yet? There is something so comforting and robust about cord, it reminds me of being young and carefree (which is sounding pretty good about now!) I'm applying for jobs at the moment and am desperate to find one. If you know anyone who would want to employ a recent Classics graduate, please let me know!

This coat deserves to have praise heaped upon it. A mere £4.99 from £50 and a steal at twice the price. Stormproof and in a gorgeous bright green colour, it would have been impossible for me to leave it behind, you know how I love a good coat! It has been invaluable in this weird stormy weather we have been having and I can see it becoming a wardrobe staple very quickly.
I think the good people of Stow were more than a little bewildered by my posing too, I got some very funny looks as they wandered around me, trying to dodge Mark as he snapped away! This dress was perfect for a lazy OAP day and loose enough to accommodate all of the cream teas too ;)
A close up of the print and the gorgeous bows that form the neckline. I tend to steer away from anything that has a looser A-line shape like this but hopefully the belt adds enough definition so I don't look too shapeless...
I would normally have worn my hair up with a fancy neckline like this but I quite liked it down and I thought it made it look a bit more casual, what do you think?
How would you have worn your hair? Do you have a fondness for certain fabrics?
