Hello summer! ...for a week


Hi there. So the week after exams it was ridiculously hot. And by ridiculously hot, I mean quite warm - 22 degrees was the maximum temperature I believe? It may seem mild, but considering the fact that prior to that week it had been hovering around 12 for what seemed like an age, everyone was in exceptionally good spirits. Arms and legs were bared, sunscreen was applied, Asos sunglasses were purchased... Durham had been delivered a lovely little taste of summer! And yet for the past few days we have suffered a return to cool temperatures and misty rain. WHY??

Anyway, despite the awful weather, the other day I received a wonderful sundress from Dahlia. It's a brand you probably know, especially if you like to venture into the Oxford St Topshop, and one that always manages to come up with especially adorable things!

(I need to stop looking down in photos haha)

I was not able to wear it in a sunny way for long, but still. When the sun does shine again (which it seems to be kind of doing now, at last, at 7pm) I know to which dress I can turn. And when does the sun does not shine, it still makes for a cheerful outfit. So there! Thanks Dahlia!

Aaand here's what I wore yesterday. Pretty much worn this outfit many times before but yesterday I finally got out my feather pillbox! I've had it for months but had never worn it before yesterday. I wish I was wearing a better bag to go with this outfit but I didn't originally plan on taking pictures of it. On another note, I have also now discovered that I can take perfectly fine outfit pictures with my iphone. So bizarre that I have a fancy phone now considering I've lasted the last eight years or so with the cheapest ones I could find... but there you go. I now apparently have a reasonably good camera with me at all times, so I'm happy.

So, off I go. Spending the night wearing these...
As I always, without fail, leave costumes to the last minute. And now I must leave. Goodbye!
