70's Swing

Every time I see this dress I immediately think of some seriously wild 70's wallpaper and I am more than okay with that. I picked it up in H&M for a mere £20 last week so if you're quick, there might still be some floating around! I took it for it's first spin on Tuesday when the lovely Megs came to visit and it was super practical too when we went for what seems to be our 'regular' wagamamas. I hadn't seen her since before she left the UK for Bali to visit Laura (which I'm so friggin proud of her for!) and if you're anything like me, you will have also been stalking their journey over on instagram and you will have already seen.. the tan.
Despite Megs being sickeningly brown and beautiful, I still managed to hold myself together and not cry at my paleness in comparison and we headed out to take a few snaps in the beautiful Spring weather. (Note: It was bloody freezing and the amount of photo's I had to delete due to inappropriate wind-induced flashing easily made double figures)
I also wore this brown hat which I picked up last year when I had longer hair. I went through a phase of wearing hats all the time but since having most of my hair chopped off, it doesn't seem to look as good and this makes me sad. Nonetheless, I wore it anyway and much to my amazement, it managed to stay on my head and not fly off in the blustering winds. Winner! Megs was kind enough to take these photo's for me and also to lend me her second jacket (yes.. she took two.. obviously Bali's heat has been too kind to her) for when our roles reversed. No tights? Not so much of a good idea.

After a lovely afternoon catching up on the latest and lusting after Megs amazing dungarees I headed home for a quick lipstick change before going out for a meal with the fam to celebrate my brother's birthday. (Again wearing the perfect 'two meals out in one day' dress.) It's quite rare that we get everyone together so it was nice to see everyone around the same table. Somewhere between finishing my main meal and starting my dessert, the day was re-named 'Tequila Tuesday' and that ladies & gents, is something I can get down with.
