Bonne Chance dress

Ever since I watched Moonrise Kingdom I have been dreaming of Suzy Bishop's wardobe; all peter pan collars, contrasting cuffs, brogues and wicker baskets.  Personally I would quite like to go for an adventure around a little island off New England, hiking and camping, and setting up a little home in a secluded cove.  My bare arms and bare legs are probably ideal for that activity, but not so much our current temperatures (despite the beautiful sunshine can we all agree that it is still bloody freezing?) and so this is more of a wanderlustful outfit than one I will be wearing for the moment, at least not without tights and a big chunky cable-knit cardigan which is what was added immediately after these photos were taken.

I discovered Bonne Chance after they followed me on Twitter.  They caught me at in a moment of procrastination and so I went for a nose at their website only to find the most beautiful, unique, vintage-inspired dresses.  In the end I opted for this little number but there were many more I was tempted by, the Sailor Scout dress and Playful Kitty dress are next on my list!  Their dresses work out at about £33 each and they offer free worldwide shipping so they're a bit of a bargain if you ask me! After chatting to them on Twitter my package also arrived with a lovely handwritten card inside, as well as wrapped and tied with ribbon.  It's the little things, don't you think?


dress: bonne chance £33 [sold out - similar] | bag: brit-stitch
hat: primark [old] | wedges: h&m [old]


I hope you've all had lovely, sun-filled weekends.  Yesterday I found my exercise limit by going for a 10K run, then a bike ride in the forest with the dog and then a swim.  I say swim, I mostly lolled in the hydrotherapy pool and let the jets blast the pain out of my achy muscles! Naturally after all of that physical activity the evening contained lounging on the sofa watching Pitch Perfect and a long, bubble-filled bath whilst watching 30 Rock on the Kindle Fire.  Perfect Sunday evening.
