The weather was lovely as England continues to surprise me by refusing to admit that it should well and truely be autumn by now.
Originally I was going to wear something different because the dress hadn't arrived yet, but just as I was selecting an outfit it arrived, just in time. The walk was lovely, apart near the end when he decided to throw leaves on me. Those photos didn't make the final cut.
Necklace: (fake) pearls, stolen from my mum.
Dress: Pearl Lowe for Peacocks, got in the sale last week for half price online (so chuffed).
Ring: my mother's wedding band.
Makeup: Rimmel lipstick in Asia and Rimmel Volume Flash mascara.
Shoes: look down a few posts.
Broach: gift from my boyfriend's mum, originally from www.1928.com.
As always all of these were taken by my (super-talented) boyfriend.
I really really love this dress. I'm not sure how well it translates, but it made me feel like a (slightly, dare is say it, glam) 1940s housewife. I like the length although normally I prefer something a little shorter, in this case I liked feeling the floaty material around my knees. Originally I was going to wear this with heels but I think the brogues give it that slight masculine twist, which I like.
On a random, completely unrelated note, I was watching Countryfile the other day and there was lady on it who's name was Rosemary Moon. I wish that was my name.
