when the boat comes in..

On a recent trip to visit my parents in their newly bought narrowboat home I took the opportunity to wear a special dress for the occasion. The crochet-esque lace on this dress reminds me of 1960s table cloths or doilies - in a good way! On browsing the Milanoo website I came across this dress and thought it would work well with bare legs in summer & tights in the winter.

I am recently on a 1960s style obsession and can't resist making everything look that little bit more vintage! Therefore I couldn't resist pairing the dress with my new shiny black loafers and a black hair bow to match! I will never stop dressing like an oversized toddler it would seem!

We spent our afternoon turning the boat and going through locks (well I wasn't much help really but I did make a good 'I'm on a boat!' girl! ). As the evening wore in William fired up the barbeque and we munched our way through delicious food aplenty! Luckily this dress also has extra belly room!! I am already looking forward to visiting my parents again as there doesn't seem to be much more relaxing than sitting on the front of a peaceful boat watching ducks & swans float along the canal.

I hope you are having a mighty lovely September and are making the most of these last few bits of warmth we are getting!
Lots of love
