I’ve been back from holiday just over a week, and while it’s lovely to be home I can’t help wishing I was still there…just a little bit. Not having to go to work, prepare any meals or drive anywhere is rather addictive. Back to reality though, and I’ve only just finished unpacking and handwashing my swimwear.
I previously wore this dress for our wedding anniversary lunch last year and I’ve been waiting for another occasion to wear it ever since. No better excuse than a holiday to get out the glad rags, right? I didn’t take it when I went to Barbados in October because it’s just too hot in the evenings for long sleeves, but Turkey in Spring is much cooler.
I would never have thought to pair these two prints together, but it’s a great combination. If you’re apprehensive about pattern clashing, this is an easy way to do it…because it’s already done for you! While the prints may be very different – animal and floral – the colours work well together. I’ve teamed mustard and bright blue together before here and here; it’s one of my favourite colour combinations.
My straw crab bag and gold espadrilles make another appearance…they go with everything which makes them holiday heroes! The hotel we stayed at is shaped liked Concorde and our room was about halfway along on the top floor. We paid a little extra for a sea view, always worth it I think, if only for watching the hundreds of house martins swirling around at sunset 🙂 I’m already dreaming of another holiday…
