Maxi dresses

Hello lovelies, please excuse my week absence yet again, its the weathers fault. I’ve just been out enjoying all this beautiful sunshine and warmth we’ve been having here in the UK. It’s been a week of beautiful blue skies, sunbathing and playing in the sunshine 🙂

I have been wearing this dress a lot, especially in the evenings when it cools off a bit and i want something light an airy to wear. It’s this dress from River Island that i treated myself to a few weeks ago and its so comfy. I’m really fancying this one now too.

 So apart from fun in the sun i have been prepping the allotment still ( i shall do some before and after photots once we’re there) there’s still so much work to do. The plot hasnt been properly worked on for years so we’re literally trying to plough through years and years of growth to clear it back to soil. Its a good workout though i tell ya!
Then yesterday we also took a little trip to a small farm park that Neo loved!! It was so so so cute seeing him getting all excited over the animals, he was super happy. I’m vowing this year to do more fun things with him, he deserves it. And we’re even considering a family camping trip. Have you ever been camping with little peeps? Any tips?

 Update on the weight, i’m now 8lbs down from the beginning and really happy with how its going. I’m 10lbs to go to target and i am already feeling a lot less bloated all the time and i can see small changes in my body. I will never be super skinny, its just not in my build, but once i hit target weight i know i will be so proud of myself. This is the first time i have actually stuck to a proper non faddy diet. Slimming World really works… i was shocked!

 Dress: River Island
Shoes & bag: Matalan
Sunnies& Necklace: Dorothy Perkins
Bracelet: Avon (old)

 I believe our weather luck is changing this week… but hey a bit of rain is good for my allotment (plus im working a lot this week,haha!)
Have you had a lovely week? Any nice plans for this week?

    Lovely maxi dress, I never seem to wear them because I'm always tripping over the hems.

    Aw, did we get a little sun? You're all pink, my dear! But somehow, a sunburn looks positively radiant on you! How in the world?! HUGE congrats on dropping 8 pounds already – that's a huge accomplishment! I'm so proud of you and I can already see the changes; you're wasting away haha. But really, the maxi looks gorgeous and flattering on you, and really shows off your new, healthier figure.
    p.s. – I just read your post after scarfing down almost an entire bag of popped rice cakes (not too horrible, but still, the bag holds 3 servings) and now I feel like a proper fat ass lol

    That dress is beautiful! And, your bag is really cute. I laughed a little when I saw the bag because I actually have a bag that is super similar to it, but made in grey.

    Great dress! i tried on 3 maxi's this week and didn't find one. I'm on a mission this week though!

    I was going to ask if you lost weight! I didn't want to sound rude though haha. I guess I haven't been over here in a while. You look great and beautiful as ever 🙂 I love this maxi, I feel like it's hard to find maxi dresses I actually like but this one fits the bill! Sounds like you've had a fun week! Love those sunnies!
