Whole Heartedly

Hey lovelies,
Nice weekends? Mine was spent attending childrens events. Mia had her big athletics comp (which she brought home two huge trophies...that girl is lightning fast!!) and then a children's karaoke party. I went to sleep at half 9 last night as i was so pooped! This rock n roll lifestyle is hard work i tell ya! One nice thing was that whilst the girls were wailing  karaoke style, me and paul snuck off for a quick meal together. Ed's Diner was delish! It was dry for once and i thought warm, but man was i mistaken! And that damn wind meant that half of Cardiff got to see my knickers which just so happened to be big old red Christmas panties! (in my defence i was rushing getting ready this morning and plus they are the most comfy pair!)





 How funny is this photo, i feel like its from a shampoo advert!!


 Dress & belt: (old) Closet via Dorothy Perkins
Cardi: Tesco Clothing
Bag: Matalan
Shoes: Peacocks
Necklace: Vintage
Milk Bottle Legs: c/o  British Weather!

Oh my!! Could my legs BE any whiter? oh sun please come visit soon, looking at those milk bottles up there is depressing! it may be time for some fake tan. Having said that, the legs are well and truly put away, its chilly. And i know lots of you are having a massive heatwave at the mo, and i would like to offer up a weather swap with you!
This dress is from Neo's birthday last year (yes i bought a dress for me for my sons birthday, i wanted to look like a pretty hostess for his party... any excuse for a new frock, am i right?) and i've only just started wearing it again. Infact it's only it's 3rd ever outing.  i don't know why, its lovely!! teeny tiny scattered hearts and bright colours, what's not to like.
And im back to the well and truly tried and tested, cardi, dress, flats :)
I see trousers and boots in my near future with this weather though (ok enough about weather already right!)
So shopping my own wardrobe is good! i wonder what other goodies i can dig out!! :)
Wishing you a super lovely week all!

  4. That dress is absolutely amazing. I love how you styled it! That belt is super cute with the heart cutouts too. And don't worry my legs are super white and it's been nice here so I really have no excuse. They are just destined to be white this summer!

  12. Love that cheery dress! And even here in hot, hot Florida, plenty of us have milky white skin, so we are cool with that : > Thanks for linking up to Visible Monday.

  13. No worries about the white legs- I think mine just manage to beat them in the "palest of them all competition". Plus, Snow White had pale legs and she was still the "fairest of them all" :) I love the effortlessness with which you style dresses xx
