What I Wore: Time To Smell The Flowers

Pretty Confused Blog: Time To Smell The Flowers Pretty Confused Blog: Time To Smell The Flowers

It can't just be me who enjoys frolicking as soon as the sun comes out, all I want to do is is walk in the sun, play with the dogs and eat ice cream. Unfortunately since taking these I had a slight accident walking and texting and sprained my ankle - no more frolicking for me for at least a week or two. At least I got to take some photos in the sun surrounded by blossoms. I have a massive pile of work to do this weekend too, I'm helping a friend set up a blog for her art which has involved doing some basic blog design for her and taking lots of photos of her art. It's been an interesting experience, I'm so used to portraits and landscapes so I've learnt loads in just a few days. I love it when I can expand my knowledge and help a friend out at the same time. There is still loads left to do though, I'm going to have a busy weekend.

On to the outfit. I think I have fallen in love with this dress, in fact I am wearing it again today but this time with some black brogues (and a nice sock round my ankle), a yellow cardigan and a hat I borrowed from the friend I am helping. It is originally from Primark, and I've got to admit I admired it the last time I went in, but I managed to find a second hand one that looked unworn . I suppose that is one of the bonuses of fast fashion - it all turns up in charity shops eventually. It's pretty unusual for me to find something so soon after I have seen it in a shop, but I'm not complaining. I absolutely love the weight of the fabric (it's even lined) and the detail on the back is just adorable. Anyway, I am back to the grind stone - if anyone has any advice on photographing art or art blogs in general I would love to hear it! TGIF everyone.

  2. Walking and texting is a dangerous combo! The greenery is absolutely lovely there - that has got to be the greenest grass I've ever seen!

    How lucky to find that dress in a thrift store after seeing it in store! That has never happened to me, but maybe one day ;)

  5. Thanks Frannie, it seems to be getting better already. Hopefully just a bad twist and not a sprain. Your post has really stuck with me, I keep thinking about it and how unfair it all seems. My heart is going out to you and Patrick. All my love xo

  6. I really like your shoes, I hope they have something similar this year :) Fast fashion is so strange, I've seen something that was in Primark and a charity shop at the same time!

  12. This dress is so super cute with the cutouts in the back. I love the purple cardigan and red shoes you paired with it! My sister hurt her ankle while texting and walking one time too. I think it's a more common injury than we'd expect!
