Knotted maxi

well hello lovely ladies of the blogosphere. Friday is upon us, isnt that great, expcept i am working tomorrow, but i have had 3 lovely days off so who am i to complain 😉

And for once the UK is being blessed with some of the glorius sunshine that so often escapes us..

Here’s to a wonderful weekend!!!

 I have to say as soon as the warmer weather hits us, i am not much in the mood for fancy outfits. All i can think of is shorts and vest tops (like if you saw me right now, im in denim cut offs, a vest and unfashionable but very comfy flip flops!) How you ladies in hot countries still look amazing in the hot weather is astounding.. well done you! I know some of you have real hot temperatures right now, and more to come according to the weather man that is my husband.

 But this simple jersey maxi is so comfy and stretchy its great for the evenings and super comfy. I’ve had it about 3 years but have not worn it in a long time (due to my weight gain). I felt really self concious in it previously as it kind of shows every lump and bump and is not very forgiving, but having now officially lost 1 stone (WOOHOOOO) i am feeling so much better! I am so so pleased. I have never stuck to a diet…ever. Slimming world has been wonderful and i am so looking forward to getting to my goal weight (7lb to go!) Its so rewarding when you see the results. I have not been this light in years, and i have to say, it feels amazing. I’m starting to like myself again, but i guess thats for a whole other post (post baby body, stress eating you know that kinda stuff)

Who ever first dreamt up knotting a maxi and makign it ‘trendy’ deserves a medal… genius!!no more treading on it, especially when going up the stairs! yay!

 I’ve just welcomed this new lighter hat to the hat family. It was on sale from Topshop and i thought it would be ideal for summer. I can see this getting its fair share of wear this summer!

 But enough  about me, how are you? Are you enjoying nice weather in your neck of the woods?

 Any nice weekend plans?

    Love that crocheted vest (using the word in my American way)! Looking pretty in heat is simple: own lots of sundresses. :). Problem solved.

    Your lace vest is gorgeous!! I don't think I've ever seen a vest quite like that one.

    Gorgeous! I love the crochet vest, and this dress, so many possibilities and I'm so with you on the knotted skirt thing, it's genius!! Loving that hat too! You are the queen of hats after all 🙂 Just super pretty. It's been pretty hot here too and it's hard to find something cute to wear without sweating buckets!
    Congrats on the weight loss!! That's so exciting, you look great! 🙂

    You look amazing in this dress! I think the crochet vest looks great with it. And your hat too, of course!
    My tip for dressing decently in hot weather is to stay inside most of the day haha. That's what I do! Or I suck it up because it sucks no matter what I'm wearing!
