Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight

This weekend has been a funny old one so far.  The Mr is away stag do-ing in Newcastle, so i am rattling away in our little attic solo. I have used this opportunity to eat all the things he hates (scrambled eggs with smoked salmon) and play music loud until quite late (Flo, Lana and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds) and dance in my pants - because i can.  Seriously. 

Last night when i got home from work, i made it just before the heavens opened and it poured down! It did that pretty much all the live long day yesterday - which for a girl makes dressing for work rather hard.  Can't believe i am discussing weather on here yet again! Despite the rain, it has been so sticky and warm! So for work today i decided to rock a little bit of Monsoon vintage. This dress is perfect for now, as it has a sleeve and its length means i can have bare legs without looking too summery.

I fell in love with this dress when it came into store last Autumn.  Everyone else wasn't so keen at first - but i think i proved them wrong!!! Whenever i wear it i just want to twirl and whirl and dance about like a hippy! I like to think Flo would approve of this dress.  I can quite imagine her wearing it.

Also due to the weather, i am learning to love my not quite-straight-not-quite-wavy hair.  I am trying to grow it and look after it a bit more than i have in the past - this means no GHD's, no washing every day and as little blow drying as i can manage!! This is hardwork.  Although i am enjoying the extra half hour of zzz's in the morning!  The little Accessorize jersey turban keeps my flyaways still in the humid weather - and i think my hair is enjoying the freedom from being squashed into a messy topknot, or fastened in a plait.  We shall see how long this lasts though!

I am off to make some scrambled eggs on toast with smoked salmon for the second night running - yum.  Then i am going to turn up Lana and sing in the bath with candles and a lovely Lush bath bomb.  Next week i am off until Friday!!! So i am getting excited at the thought of spending some time blogging and having long lies in with the Mr….if he survives this weekend!

Dress:  Monsoon AW11 £95.  Turban Accessorize AW11 £6.  Necklace:  Accessorize, many many years ago, £12.
