OOTD: Family Day

Dress: Gap sold out online similar here // Wedges 2012 season similar here // Floral Garland Primark similar here

My parents arranged a family gathering yesterday to take advantage of the sunshine and I decided that a day in the garden needed a dress that was comfortable enough to take the heat yet pretty enough for the occasion. I spent Friday lunchtime stalking my usual haunts in the City and finally ended up in the branch of Gap next door to my office and found just what I was looking for, this blue little number.

At £24.95 it was a great price, a fabulous colour (they have them in grey and orange too) and had some room once I'd indulged in the feast my mum was laying on. Unfortunately it seems I'm not the only one who liked this dress as it has sold out online but I'm sure you'll be able to find some in store.

I'm suffering from festival envy at the moment hence the floral garland in my hair. I actually got up at 830am so I was in my local Primark on opening Saturday morning to buy this. I'd seen it a few weeks ago and loved it but didn't think I'd have any reason to wear it so popped back on the shelf then hadn't stopped thinking about it since - and if you can't wear flowers in the garden then when can you?

The shoes I had completely forgot I owned having had them hiding at the back of my wardrobe. I picked these up last Summer, again another item I'd seen in the shops, deciding against because they were quite expensive. When I was still thinking about them wistfully weeks later I decided to treat myself and was rewarded by them appearing in the sale and half price - sometimes it pays to wait.

I hope you're all having great weekends in the sun with your friends and families too, I'd love to hear what you got up to.
