Here comes the sun (briefly, before it rains again)

By Gem - 20:30:00

I was so excited to see the sun out on Saturday after a washout of a week that I put on the brightest clothes I could find. I've had the cardi for years and picked it up in the M&S sale and I got the dress from a charity shop. I wanted it when it was in store a couple of year ago but couldn't find it in my size and tried to bid on it a few times on ebay. I only paid £3 for the dress and it still had the tag on, I love charity shops!

Summer Florals


Dress: Dorothy Perkins via charity shop
Cardigan: Marks & Spencer
Shoes: flat shoes, TUK c/o Spartoo

This is as scheduled post because I'm currently in the best conference venue EVER! Gregynog Hall, I went last year and loved it and took some gorgeous photos which you can check out here.
