So, it's the bank holiday weekend (hurray!) and I'm in the best mood I've been in for a long time. Today is full of good news. Work is going well, my amazing flatmate from last year is coming to visit tonight, my family and dog are here, and tomorrow and Monday it's Notting Hill Carnival. See you there?
The cherry on top of my happiness is that I was given some beautiful flowers today. My flat now smells like roses, and they were the perfect accessory for an outfit post, no? Let's start saying it with flowers more, it really does put a girl in the loveliest of moods.
Today I'm wearing a vintage Jonathan Saunders dress that I picked up a few weeks ago in an Octavia Foundation charity shop, paired with a sunflower garland that I bought last summer to support the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, my Vida Vida bag, and my trusty Urban Outfitters boots. All jewellery is from the wonderful Katrina Phillips, 99 Portobello Road, apart from my little Delilah Dust bracelet.
Thank you (once again) to Middle Brother, who is becoming my blog photographer of choice (as my tripod sadly seems to be MIA). I only have to pay him in carrot cake and cups of tea, which works well for everyone.
The pattern on the dress is, in my opinion, just so, so pretty, and I adore the swishy-ness of it. Swish, swish, swish.
If you're Carnival-bound and you see anything spectacular, then please tweet me @monablogs so that I don't miss out! However you spend your bank holiday weekend, I hope it's filled with friends, family, and fun.
