Yesterday we celebrated Father’s Day and with the sunshine peaking out to say hello briefly –  I wanted to wear something that made me feel like summer. I dug this floral little Lindy Bop number out of the back of my wardrobe and paired it with a vintage yellow organza headscarf, tied around the waist – from my own store. I think this dress actually did originally come with a matching yellow slim waist belt but I like to mix things up a little.

If I am buying a Lindy Bop dress – I know that their “Audrey” style swing dresses really work with my shape and as they come in a variety of different patterns and fabric, they make up a staple of my day to day wardrobe. This one has a lot of stretch in it and is very comfortable to wear. I also like how versatile they are – you can dress up or down. I actually first wore this dress when I was pregnant with my little girl (scroll down for pic) and wore with a petticoat underneath.

I wanted to pair this with some comfy shoes as my entire family and I were going out for a Father’s Day meal. As I was taking my three month old daughter, I needed practical footwear so out came my peachy T bar pumps. What better way to wear a floral print than to have a little bumble bee brooch keep you company. This one from Love From Hetty And Dave I gushed about recently in my last blog post and it goes with so much in my wardrobe – it will be gracing many an outfit to come.

Morning Peaches. This week I have been a busy BEE. The saying:

“Success usually comes to those that are too busy to be looking for it” 

could not be more true for me right now! Life never seems to throw me just one lemon – it is usually the whole flipping tree. I actually kinda like it – creativity breeds connections. I have been absolutely buzzing around my little hive making such sweetness (all puns intended) that I thought it was only appropriate to review this little Honey Bee Brooch – Love from Hetty & Dave.

‘They call it stormy Monday, but Tuesday is as just as bad
Yeah, they call it stormy Monday but Tuesday, Tuesday is as just as bad
You know Wednesday is worst, and Thursday, oh so sad’   -Albert King 

If you are reading this from England then you the above lyrics will resonate deep within your soul right now. This week has been a wash out – literally. I have had to cancel so many fabulous photoshoots due to the abysmal British weather and I for one am less than impressed with that! I took this opportune moment in between the thunder and lightening to quickly shoot some photos of the fabulous earrings I was gifted recently by Hazel & Kent

Afternoon Peaches. It’s been a mixed bag of a weekend with torrential rain and a thousand things to do then blazing sunshine and some new stock. I always try and pack as much as I can into my weekends and this one was no different. For this busy day – I picked this new (to me) hot pink shift dress originally from New Look. I found this pre-loved from Depop for a grand total of £3.50. It has a lovely sheen to it and although these shots were taken in the 10 minutes that the sun decided to show, the images have not been edited and it really is this bright a pink!

It’s the weekend peaches! Today marks two glorious events – its our Queen’s “official” 90th birthday AND Ladies Day at the races! Now if you were to ask me which of these fabulous gatherings I love the most it would most definitely be the Queenie’s birthday.. I am a proud royalist through and through (don’t hate me!) which stems from my father being interested in history and the Royal Family when I was a child. She is just completely and utterly wonderful in every way – just like her mother before her (who I also loved and was so sad to see pass on.) In fact, I love most of the Royals and especially the simple yet elegant wardrobe of Catherine, The Duchess Of Cambridge.

Of course secondly, I love Ladies Day at the races! The mixture of the stunning race horses, the adrenaline pumped atmosphere and elaborate hats have always drawn me in. Any excuse to dress up. That’s me.
