On the 1st of May we rather bravely had our first BBQ of 2016! It wasn't the warmest day, and it rained somewhat, but dammit, we are British, it was a Bank Holiday, and we wanted a BBQ! I didn't really dress for the weather and ended up wrapped in blankets, but I still took a couple of outfit photos so I could share a more summery look with you.
Dress - New Look via ASOS
Belt - ASOS
Sandals - Yours Clothing
Faux leather jacket - Matalan
Leggings - ASOS
Sunglasses - Ebay
I know, I wear my faux leather jackets with everything, but I adore them! I had this dress saved in my ASOS saved items section for the longest time but kept umming and aahing over ordering. New Look stuff can be on the short side on me but I thought it looked like it would be cute for our honeymoon. I was sold on it when I went in my local shop and the till assistant was wearing it and is a similar height to me and it looked fab on her. I hopped on ASOS and it was reduced in the sale. It was meant to be! I thought a tan belt would be really cute and summery with it and I finally added one to my collection.
Normally I edit photos of my feet, I have patches of eczema, and scarring from it, but I've decided not to edit it out, it's part of me and I should be less ashamed of it. These are faux leather, and Ashen seemed to approve by insisting his feets were also in this selfie. The rope style front section is really cute.
And in case you hadn't seen it on my social media... my hair is pink now! I couldn't resist dying it before the wedding. It had been almost 3 years since I last dyed or coloured it.
Here's hoping for more summer weather soon!
