This weekend Landgirl Charly organised a little get together to meet up with Tasha of By Gum By Golly at the end of her trip to the UK. We passed a pleasant afternoon in the cosy library of The Victoria in Paddington, where apparently Charles Dickens spent time writing "Our Mutual Friend" - how cool is that? The group photos were on Charly's camera, so check her blog over the next few days.
Meanwhile, shall we take a moment to talk about my dress? Now that I'm working a nine-to-five (and yes, I spend a lot of time humming Dolly Parton to myself) and am required to look vaguely "normal" on a day to day basis, I kind of make the most of the opportunity to have fun with my clothes at the weekends! This is the 50s party dress I wore to my sister's wedding two years ago - the one I bought at a car boot sale for £2, my best ever car boot bargain ever ever. It's super cute, but kind of formal for afternoon wear, so I dressed it down a touch with a casual cardigan, and accessorised in red, coral and orange. This is possibly my favourite colour combination right now.
After I got home we went for a walk in the meadow in the sunset - I don't want to speak too soon but summer might just finally have arrived!
