The tartan dress

Are there people in the inhabited world that don't own this dress? I know it has been something of a blogger fave! I picked it up in Primark a couple of weeks ago and packed it for our trip to Herefordshire/Wales (we were right on the border of the two!) There's always something quite special about packing something new in your suitcase I think, especially if it's a tartan dress with peter pan collar and cap sleeves.

On seeing these photos I have decided it is a little unfair that I don't have a cornfield with stunning views on my doorstep for the purpose of outfit photos.  It's much easier to look brooding and thoughtful when you're gazing across a beautiful vista of rolling hills and countryside.

 
dress: primark £16 // ballet pumps: pretty ballerinas £84.99

I have lots more posts to share with you this week and I'm excited to show you the photos of the holiday cottage we stayed in last weekend as well as lots of treats that I was lucky enough to receive whilst I was away.  I had six parcels delivered to me from my office on Monday when I left for the course I was on last week and since then three more have arrived, it's felt like Christmas over the last few weeks (I don't pretend that some of them weren't gifts to myself mind you!) ... not to mention the wonderful cards and presents we've received from people sending their congratulations on our engagement.  I don't know why I've been so surprised and touched at how happy people are for us but it really does mean an awful lot - I think I've felt more emotional at the outpouring of love and affection we've received than I was at the actual proposal! And thankyou all for your lovely comments on my last post.  It feels so special to share this with all of my lovely blogging friends!

After being away for two weeks I can't describe how good it is to be home.  When I walked in the door on Thursday I just felt so happy and content and I realised how much I love unpacking my things and hanging all my clothes back in the wardrobe after being away.  I am such a home bird! Needless to say I have spent the last two days lighting candles, snuggling under the blanket on the sofa, catching up on TV and thoroughly enjoying being home.  My email inbox is rather a sight to behold however, as is my Bloglovin reading list! I have also spent quite a lot of time (naturally) looking on Pinterest for wedding inspiration, having a nose at venues and wasting time making wishlists and Christmas lists (I have developed a bit of an appetite for art online and am currently coveting lots of beautiful prints now we've found a great framers down the road from us).  I actually sprained my ankle running yesterday morning (I tripped over a tree root at Park Run!) so I've been able to do little else other than browse the interweb and read, which is suiting me fine! Hope you're all having lovely weekends where you are,

  17. I do love these dresses and Im so tempted to get them. But they just remind me of home and away school unitform (well from when I used to watch home and away they may have changed now!) haha. But i do like the collar details! Argh. I might just have to get over it and pop to Primark to get one!

    I'm exactly the same - even if I've had the most incredible holiday, there's something so nice about stepping off the train in Brighton and being home x

  26. Love these photos. I feel the need to hunt down a cornfield and take some outfit photos now, or maybe when this wind and rain stops.
    I gave up on hunting this dress down in the green colour so ended up buying the red, it is very bright for me but I kind of love it! x
