BBQ Time!

The weather has been delightful this week and like thousands of other Brits across the country, at the first glimpse of sunshine we ran off to buy burgers, buns and disposable BBQs (I wanted to buy a real one for the bargain price of £16.99 but wasn't allowed for ridiculous reasons). We actually had to go to three different places to hunt for them in the end because they had sold out everywhere - it would have been much easier to buy the one from Argos that I wanted. I'm always right. It was also a bit of a celebration because the grass finally got cut at my boyfriend's and one of his housemates decorated the garden with balloons which looked lovely!

I chose to wear this dress because of the masses of material around the stomach area which meant that I would be able to stuff my face without being restricted at all.

Dress and Necklace - H&M, Shoes - New Look, Sunglasses - Ray Ban

When I bought this dress last week, they actually left the security tag on it so I had to take it back to get it removed. For one terrible moment I thought I'd lost the receipt - What on earth would I have done then? Fortunately I found it so the crisis was averted.

  3. What a beautiful dress, such a great colour on you. I've been to a protable barbecue almost every night for about 2 nights, we brits are so predictable. Very fun though. & that last shot it just golden.

  4. whew! Glad you found the receipt. Another great dress by you. I'm really feeling the peacocks right now (I just bought a peacock dress too, but very different from yours).
    I am so glad to hear that there is a heat wave in England, hopefully it will last until I get there.

  5. Warm weather?! I'm so jealous! Suddenly we're getting these random storms with thunder, lighting, and downpours of torrential rain :(
    Your dress is beautiful! Seriously, you look amazing! You've always got the best patterns and prints on your outfits. First umbrellas, then watering cans and now peacocks. I'm always surprised!
    I can't wait to post the leggings, they are super fun! I may have to purchase some new things to go with them though, still deciding.
    I'm very curious about that lipstick of yours, I'm sure you will rock it :)

  9. What a perfectly lovely dress. You look just the part to be dining al fresco. And empire waists are a must for gorging on food. I've found waist-belts can give me a mean case of indigestion.

  16. Love that dress and your Ray Ban's are gorgeous. I want a pair but I ended up settling for some knock off ones from UO istead. Sigh.

    Also, yes my sister still goes to uni in Liverpool...and actually she studies Law too but she goes to the other Uni...she's just moved out of her halls now but she was in North western halls...the one next to the station? My sister tells me it's a LJM hall!

  22. That dress is so beautiful! Love the colour and that print is so fab :) Haha it's a shame the good weather didn't last over the weekend, it was all rain and thunder today. Yikes, I once came home from H&M with the grey plastic security tag on my jeans still. I couldn't be bothered to go back, so I popped it off with some scissors...I was rather taken aback by how easy it was!
