White Kimono - New Look (sold out) | Butterfly Dress - Primark | Gold Leaf Necklace - Forever21 | Maxi Low Jelly Shoes - JuJu | 'Grafea Dupe' Rucksack - Primark

I always know it's officially summer when barbecuing dinner becomes a regular occurrence. This weather has been amazing & just makes me want to buy lots of dresses! I'd seen a very similar dress to this one in Next recently & almost picked it up so I'm quite glad I had my sensible shopping head on that day since I bagged this cute shift dress from Primark for only £13! I don't know about anyone else but when I shop in Primark I forget that I'm spending actual money since everything's so cheap I use this as the excuse to just take everything I pick - it's a bit of a problem! I pop in for one thing & end up with at least one thing from every department. (and the usual bobby pins, hair bobbles, nail files, lashes etc..) Please tell me I'm not the only one. 

The white lace kimono is a new favourite although I've worn it a couple of times now & it doesn't wash very well. The tassles get all tangled and it loses it's shape a little but once it's ironed & the strands have been straightened out it's not so bad! 

I think this is the first that my JuJu jelly shoes have made an appearance on my blog. They're really comfortable & I think they look really cute. Sometimes in the Summer it's difficult to wear a full shoe without looking too clumpy but I think that jelly shoes with their cut-out details serve as a good in-betweeny from a sandal & a shoe. Plus as we already know I class a pastel pink as a neutral so I've had plenty of wear from these.

I hope everyone has been taking advantage of this beautiful weather! Have a great week.
