I Blame The Sun

Hey dearies, jeez i am such a slacker when it comes to blogging lately. I just can't seem to get my arse in gear at all!  All i want tis to get through each hot day by having water fights with Neo in the paddling pool and then chill out with this drink (its amazing and you have to try it!) whilst listening to some old favourites like this and this on constant repeat, then going out for an evening stroll when the weather cools ever so slightly,  and that my friends pretty much sums up this little existence right now. Honestly this sunshine is making me blog lazy. I think i actually blog better in bad weather, how bizarre!

 I guess jean shorts and baggy vests don't really count much for a great outfit post do they? That has pretty much been my uniform of late.. i just can't stand too much clothing in this extreme hot weather we've been having. Us Brits aren't used to such extreme hotness for such extended periods of time. I had to go and buy a few more light summer dresses as i was actually lacking in the very light airy dress department, being that i've never really had much use for them! and, well shopping is always ok in my books!



 I bought this dress in New Look. It kinda reminds me of the nineties, so i kinda played on that a bit when i out it on with the tee and chucks.  Spending a big part of my youth as a 90's child i have never really looked back and thought i would re create an outfit that assimilated that era even slightly but i do admit i kinda like this one... comfy floaty dress, white basic tee, comfy shoes... all ok in my book!!


 I remember having a really puffy rara skirt and really big tongued trainer boots and lots of really embarrassing hair bands in the 90's...i was not a trendy child at all! Infact i looked bloody awful..bless me, haha!
Do you ever dress like your former self in the 90's?  or like me, do you normally avoid it?

  5. I've been a lazy blogger too. Sunny weather distracts me so much! Some 90s fashion is so fun to recreate. I got a denim dress the other day at a thrift store that I'm very excited about. But some other trends that happened, I'm definitely going to avoid.

  9. I'm so glad to hear the Wales has finally caught up with the rest of the northern hemisphere and sprinkled some summer weather down on you all! And look how wonderfully golden tan you are already! For someone who spends most of her life covered up and slightly chilly, you sure do tan nicely, my dear! I wish I could say the same for myself, but alas, my skin tends more to appear more cooked lobster and less bronzed goddess.
    Anyway, I never thought I'd like 90s inspired outfits again, either, but you've single handedly changed my mind (much like with the sneaker wedges)! Boy, you really have the power of influence over me, huh?

  10. I love 90s-inspired outfits! It reminds me of childhood. All the overalls going on lately really remind me of the 90s, so I suppose I've been experimenting with reverting to styles of my elementary school years. I think this outfit is just so cute. I love the t-shirt layered under your sun dress and those sneakers are adorable with it.
