Sight seeing

I bloody love buying dresses, it is a problem. I seem to go into autopilot when shopping and just gravitate to the dresses. However this one isn't just a mindless purchase, the print is amazing. This year I am not going on holiday; so this is my alternative to sight seeing.
Dress from I sized up when I purchased this dress. I would normally go for a size xs/s but after studying the measurements of this dress I went for a Large; a bit of a difference.
Wore this on a night out this past weekend, safe in the idea that no one else would be wearing the same as me.

Where did you get that hat?

Hat from TK Max last year, this is the second time I am wearing it. It made its debut one day on a trip to Barry Island but it was just too blustery that it didn't stay on my head for long. It has since been used as a dress up hat for my little cousin. 
I gave it another go today when meeting my mum in town for some lunch. One of the reasons behind my change of heart towards this hat is that since turning 23 I have been a little conscious of those little things that society tells us to do everything in our power to prevent, wrinkles and sun damage. On these sunny days I have been slapping on a SPF (maybe not as high as it should be), the hat adds a little bit more protection. 
My other reasoning for protecting my face is that I tan very easily. I am the darkest skin toned of my family and although I only have a Mediterranean background I do often get asked if I am mixed race. Basically if I tan, I will have to venture out and buy yet another foundation. As if finding a spot on colour match for my normal year round skin tone wasn't hard enough. Lazy? Yes, very much so.
The third reason is that; I love it. I think it goes well with my outfit without making it all about the hat. 
Oh and about that outfit. Dress is from Dresslink. Cheap and perfect for this hot weather we are having. The sleeves give it an extra edge to what would otherwise be a boring grey dress.
Maybe I could be one of those people, you know the kind. A hat person.

These pictures have massively highlighted that I need to get my legs out more often, as this year they seem to be rejecting a tan. Today I went to a vintage fair, of which I took no pictures of and zero purchases from. What a pants fashion blogger I am. But nonetheless this is my outfit of the day. Drop waist dress found in the sale in New Look last year, very versatile as I wear this with tights, boots and chunky cardigan in the winter. The kimono adds to this outfit perfectly without being too much of a statement; more info on the kimono in this post here .

Birthday suit

These past 2 weeks have been non stop. In the first week it was my birthday. This was the first year that I had to work on my birthday, sign of getting older? Despite it being mid week I did still manage to dress for the occasion, even if it was to overload on the salad bar at Harvester. 
I won these dungarees a few months ago from ebay (originally from River Island). I received them and in true ebay fashion they were faulty; the hem was broken and were massively too long. I sent them to be taken up, the perks of having a seamstress for a nan. I originally intended to wear these with some big block heels however the hem was taken up a little too much. However I can still wear them with flat sandals which will make them more of a wearable item. Despite being black I do think these are a seasonal item, once that rain and wind sets back in these flares won't stand a chance.
