Florals By The Lake


 Well aren't these lighter nights just delightful?! I managed to get photos done after work just before going out for what turned out to be, one of the best meals ever, with hubs on Tuesday night. It was a bit of one of those nights where we were both tired but had my mummy dearest as a babysitter so we took advantage. Our plans for our anniversary kinda fell through the week before (but we still had a nice time then too) so we ventured out to our normal apres work choice of pub/restaurant, which was super busy, so we drove round the town and stopped outside the restaurant we held our wedding reception at. Before we knew it we were inside having one of the best nights ever! Gorgeous best tasting food(ever!), amazing wine, great company and a wonderful setting with such wonderful memories of our wedding day. I often find random nights like these turn out to be even better than the ones formally planned :-)

 Another reason as to why it was the perfect night was this dress! Debenhams very kindly asked me to choose a dress from the fantastic dress selection. After i did a little happy dance i got to choosing a dress, which was tough... they have so many! I ended up with this Henry Holland dress just because,well, how could i not! Funky, retro, floral, colourful print with a peter pan collar. Need.I.Say.More
 It arrived whilst i was at work on Tuesday (super quickly i might add, seeing as i ordered it over the bank holiday!) and it turned out to be the perfect dress for the evening, which rather lucky actually seeing as everything is packed away now for the move.
 Speaking of moves... by the time you read this i ***hope*** we should have the keys to our new abode! I shall keep you posted....

Dress & Tights: c/o Debenhams
Shoes: George @Asda
Bag: New Look
Trench: Next
Necklace & Earrings: Gift of the Hubby







And on a final note i would really just like to thank the beautiful Erica who kindly emailed me and nominated me for:


If you too would also like to make this girls week/month/year then you too can vote right here.
It's funny i was only saying to my wonderful blogging pal Catherine, that i'm not really in to competitions as i absolutely hate competing, i just go to pieces and become an big quivering wreck that develops a stutter and blurts out random shiz, haha. But to be nominated even, well that's just pretty sweet...

  4. I find that same thing-whenever we plan to have a night out things never go as planned and then we get disappointed...but if it's impromptu it turns out to be a wonderful surprise! Glad you had a fun evening :) This dress really is a dream. The blue brings out your blue eyes beautifully and what a whimsical and fun print! Wow, seems like everyone is house hunting or moving lately-including us! How exciting for you :)

  19. Congrats on your nomination! Random nights do tend to be the most fun and dressing with such a great flower print has to be a fun of its own.
