The UK had a heatwave. As we’re Brits, we loooove a chat about the weather, and bloody hell guys it was HOT. So its time for one of my favourite handmade skirts! plus size vintage style
So over the weekend I managed to grow balls and sweat them off – just in time to spend a few days with my sister-in-law and end up in a Coheed and Cambria mosh pit on the hottest day of the year. Seeing both the sister-in-law and Coheed were amazing, although the heat was a little less ideal!
As soon as hot weather comes in, I have this mental image of me wearing white eyelet lace sundresses and frolicking in tall grass. Picnics and prosecco with beautiful sun kissed friends. In reality, I’m hiding under a tree with a warm cider with food thrown down myself complaining about how much I sweat.
Mmm, what a gorgeous mental image.
But hell, I never learn anything and ended up buying this top from Primark because MY GOD isn’t it cute? I’m such a sucker for a frilled bardot and the aforementioned white eyelet lace, so this was kinda a necessary purchase. (Is any Primark purchase really that necessary, though?) It fulfils my summer dreams – regardless of the fact I dropped food down it and dyed the inside pink…
My love for gingham is everlasting, though, and this top was just so perfect for my Blue Gingham Skirt, that was blogged about last year. It reminds me of a stereotypical sort of Southern-American sweetheart, bar the overplayed accent, pigtails and penchant for country music!
