This weekend has been a busy one so sleeping most of yesterday was needed. Thursday at uni was fantastic (I'm so excited) and Dylan is much better but I'm so tired. 

Saturday was fun but really took it out of me- we risked (despite the predicted summer storm) a BBQ fir my sisters birthday and lots of laughing later we all went home happy. Mostly because it didn't rain! 

Planning for bad weather I dressed appropriately. I wore one of my favourite dresses but left the petticoat at home as it was too hot first thing for it, a cardigan for the evening and a head scarf to hide my messy hair as I was expecting rain. 

Dress: eBay
Belt: New Look
Bag: eBay
Cardigan: Primark (similar here and here)
Scarf: Vintage
Shoes: Shoe Zone (similar here, here and here)

I love this dress and I'm really glad I tried it without a petticoat- it's so wearable and as its a circle skirt still looks really full and floaty. 
I've got into the habit of wearing my cardigans with only the top button fastened. I saw it on Amanda (from Junebugs and Georgina Peaches) and fell in love with the look. 

I'm sorry I've been awful with blogging- I've personally struggled if I should carry on at uni which is why I lost my mojo. I am (so I'm back) but I'm going to make a few changes hopefully these which will impact only a little. In fact I think once I get to wear normal.clothes everyday my blogging will actually improve.
