Today's outfit: Retro and Rainy.

Cardigan - Tesco, Umbrella - Primark
Lip Stick - Bourjois
Dress & Tights - Evans
Shoes - Newlook
I can't control the weather, in case you didn't know? But it seemed to be on my side today, as was the neighbours fence. Last night I decided I would do an outfit post today, and hoped I would be able to use my umbrella. When I woke up, the rain was pounding down and the oak tree in our garden waving back and forth. Putting on my polka dot dress, red lipstick and heels I headed down stairs with my camera in hand and shocked my mother. Into the garden we went and I lamely tried to pose for the camera. You see, I come across so many blogs with amazing outfit posts not just taken in a bedroom mirror and since I have started my blog, have really wanted to give this a go. Today I did and it was fun and wet, but mainly wet. I edited some of the photos because, I thought they looked more effective. However some are natural.

Let me know what you think of this post and today's outfit?

Thank-you for reading!!

I think this is a great idea! I don't think I would have to guts to do my pictures anywhere but my room - even my house-mates have a good giggle at me :)
Plus that dress is super cute - Rain don't stop no fashion divas!

I think it's really cute! Nothing like polka dots for a retro look, and I also really like your hairstyle (and the colour; it's beautiful).

P.S. You asked about my favourite country. I couldn't possibly choose, but the place I want to live right now is Barcelona. : )

This look is so pretty! I love the combination of your hair and make-up with this vintage-styled dress. And the rain makes the photos even better.
