An afternoon in the garden5:05 PM
This afternoon it's been warmer than usual so, because I had a rare day off work, I meandered around the garden for a bit. Today I wore my new dress, and for once it wasn't covered up under a million layers :) I've been feeling awfully body conscious of late; I've put on all my extra winter weight and winter hasn't even started yet! I feel a bit gross about any photos of me, so I've been avoiding them :S But i thought I'd show you this dress as it really is beautiful.
Kitty cuddles :)
Dress- 1940s vintage, from myfavoritevintage on etsy
Stockings- fully fashioned from What Katie Did
Heeled oxford brogues- Target
My favourite thing about this dress is absolutely the Peter Pan collar. I'm a sucker for them, especially when they're trimmed with lace like this. I feel like a little girl again :)
Mum's just started us a little vegie garden! We have two big styrofoam boxes out on trestles in the back yard filled with goodies. It's exciting, we've never really grown our own produce before (apart from a massive pumpkin which we found in the bushes, but that doesn't count because it was totally by accident!). Things seem to be going ok so far; we have cabbages, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, carrots and strawberries - I'm most excited about those!
Do you grow your own produce? Can you give us any tips? I'd love to hear them!
