In an attempt to make the best of the current situation, I decided to put on a nice dress and get out in the garden for a little while. The weather has been glorious since the beginning of lockdown but I’ve spent a majority of time indoors. I’ve been kept busy working from home and by the time I finish, the sun has gone from our garden. I’ve been enjoying my walks but sometimes it’s nice to just sit out and relax.
My copy of Seasons by Stories arrived shortly after lockdown commenced and it’s the perfect thing to enjoy during this quarantine. Seasons is a quarterly publication of stories, art, poems, travel and photography. I really respect and admire what the girls have created and I’m glad I ordered early and got a copy of the first edition. They are open to submissions of Summer inspired art before the 1st of June for inclusion in the next edition.
My dress is new in from River Island via ASOS. It’s one of those pieces that I knew would sell out fast so I didn’t hesitate in ordering. It’s the perfect Summer dress as it’s 100% cotton and therefore breathable and ideal for warmer temperatures. It has 3/4 sleeves which is great. My favourite part is the shirred waistband which creates a nice shape. The off white / ecru tone is beautiful and makes it very easy to style. I can’t wait to wear it more and take on my future travels whenever and wherever that might be.
