it's been a long long time since I memorised your face

Afternoon everyone, well what can I say I'm melting. I'm not one to moan (little fib) but honestly I'm fed up of this heatwave. I heard this morning that it's the driest July since 1764? How is this possible, I'm long for a summer shower so I can head out in the down pour to cool down. The only good thing about all this lovely weather is the wonderful range of summer dress and accessories on offer to brighten me up.

In the past I found it hard to style certain colours, orange being one of them, but since I took the plunge and dyed my hair ginger over a year ago I just can't get enough of it, that and yellow of course. I was sent this 50's style shirt dress courtesy of Nomads Clothing who specialise in fair trade clothing. Each one of their patterns are printed or painted by hand and the delicate pattern has a subtle burst of colour. Although the 50's style full skirt is lined, it's still lightweight and perfect for a summer day out.
 The perfect accompaniment to the Nomads dress is this handmade leather backpack from Zatchels. The leather is so soft and it so comfy to wear. This will be perfect for my Berlin trip, I go in less than two weeks and I can't wait to get away! Any suggestions or places to go, or any fellow bloggers want to show me around get in touch.

  3. I got this dress a couple of weeks ago too and I love it! We wore it in a fairly similar way actually (http://www.rebelangel.co.uk/2013/07/nomadic.html)! It looks gorgeous on you, and I love you hair by the way :)
