She gives them butterflies, bats her cartoon eyes

I woke up this morning, at the unfortunate hour of 8.30am, to find sunlight peeping through the sky light and on to the duvet - more than enough of an excuse to get up that early on a Sunday! So after some tea and toast, with a little helping of the Junior Great British Bake Off, i decided i would head to the park before Mr Sunshine changed his mind…(and just so you know i am actually writing this at 4pm and it is POURING).

Due to the ever changeable weather up here, my wardrobe skills really have been tested this Summer.  My maxi dresses have hardly got a look in and on the odd day i have been brave - i have ended up looking like i have been wading in the sea, in my clothes! So i have been 'smock rocking'.  

Little smock style dresses are lovely as their loose shape means they keep you lovely and cool, and the little sleeve means that you don't look too high summer when the heavens open! I also like that i can wear them with pumps, flip flops and brogues and socks - and actually tights and a chunky cardigan in the winter.  A seasonal all rounder!! 

As i have been solo for most of the last three days to the Mr's escapades, i have been reading and listening to music a lot more this weekend, which most definitely influences what i wear too.  I have been flitting between Lana Del Ray and Florence mostly - which probably explains why i resemble a little bit of a hippy!  I adore them both so much.  I love Florence for the way her voice is an instrument; how she dances; her beautiful long red hair and for her beautiful nutty get ups!  Lana oh Lana i also equally adore - for her beautiful lyrics and music you can sink into, her extremely sexy style, which makes me want to buy lipstick, and the fact that she is just so mesmerising to listen to.

I am looking forward to spending the evening with the Mr snuggled up on the sofa with the windows open listening to the rain and reading my book…
