Summer's gone

First off, I'd like to apologise for the horrific quality of the photos you're about to view. Usually, I have the whole of London to play with and a blogger flatmate (JenniferJayne) with a lovely camera and lots of patience!
 
However, I'm currently out of town visiting my parents and as much as I love her, my mother is not a photographer. To really make matters worse, BertiBoo the lunatic cockapoo wanted to ruin everything get involved.
 
Secondly, this weather! I literally cannot dress myself. My week has been spent throwing clothes around in frustration. Refusing to admit defeat, I decided to channel my disgruntlement into creating an outfit that is summery-yet-it-could-rain-any-minute appropriate.
 
I did quite appreciate the slighty freaky synchronism of The Kinks, Summer's Gone (great song!) blaring out of the neighbours radio as we took the photos!

  30. You look really pretty! I love this casual cute outfit on you! :)

    I've just published a new post about a disappointing cooperation with a sponsor called Dresslink.
    I don't recommend them as a sponsor to anyone!
    Please come and have a read so you know why.
