Teal dress and lemon slice clutch

 Another sales purchase over here, this teal pretty cut-out waist dress is just summery perfection.
I absolutely love this teal/turquoise/aquamarine colour, its just divine and its been absolute pleasure to wear. Its been super muggy and warm here the past few days, so this dress was so light and airy that it made me feel much cooler. A little draft even gets through the waist cut out detail making me feel a little naked but safe in the knowledge that everything is covered ;)
As someone who never bares my midriff (post baby.. its a big no no for me, no amount of bio oil fixed that much stretching unfortunately.. ) this dress makes me feel a little daring and cool (temperature wise and street cool haha..who am i kidding!) with its cut out beautiful detail, its unlike any other dresses i own.

Can we just take a moment for The lemon slice clutch.. it is just divine..
So fruity and fresh its a true beaut!
I finished the look off with this neon yellow Yosa necklace just to add a fun pop and last years sales buy Next Outlet sandals.

Hubs and I did attempt a little date night last night, but we missed the cinema because
a. i read the times wrong and we were taking outfit photos before we went #blogger/real-lifefail
b. i also didn't read the listing correctly as Hercules (gotta love The Rock) was in 3D and we didn't take our glasses (and i was too stingy to buy yet another pair!)
So we sat outside a restaurant in the sun having drinks and chatting which was even nicer in my books!
Sometimes fails turn in to out nicely :)


(ahem, please excuse my really dodgy tan lines.. remember i mentioned burning? well this is the outcome.. pretty huh!)

Sandals: Old Next outlet last year



Ever have your plans change but to end up having a better time? 
I still want to see Hercules but maybe another day;)
(have you seen it, was it good, did i miss much?)

  4. Glad it's not just me that does silly things like that. I've been known to walk into the completely wrong film :s

  5. Many times things don't happen exactly the way I thought I wanted them too, but they turn out much better! It's good you missed the movie because the lighting in these shots is magical. I just found your blog and these photos make me want to stay awhile. I love the bright colors, that lemon pouch, and all the foliage in the background. Simply beautiful. Things happen for a reason :-)

  6. The yellow and blue are just beautiful on you... bright colours just look sooooo perfect with your hair, hun! The dress is such a cute cut and oh, the necklace...!! All your pieces are so fabulous and make every outfit so, so pretty.

    I'm all for enjoying plans that were changed at the last minute... but what I want to know is what cinema is charging you for 3D glasses?! I've never had to pay for mine but maybe because our cinema is a big Vue. They do recycle them which is good ;)

    Oh not seen Hercules - going to see Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend. As it's a Marvel film I'm sure you and Salvatore will be going to see that too?!!

    Happy hump day Rachel

  10. You look so gorgeous!! I love your hair like that and this color is amazing on you! Plus, how cute is that lemon clutch? Seriously!! Sounds like you had a great night even though you didn't end up at the movies. Sometimes just sitting and talking is the best kind of date :)

  15. Teal and lemon look so summery and smashing together. :) Im really glad you stick to bright colours even though your style have changed quite a lot. ;) You have evolved into a mature, grown up look but I cant seem to shake of my love for childish prints. ;) hehehe Thanks for popping by my blog and leaving a comment, means a lot! :) xxx Monica
