Today I’m Wearing: A French Connection Ditsy Dorothy dress

I was recently contacted by French Connection who kindly gifted me this dress as a way of promoting their sale. It’s safe to say it’s my new favourite dress. I felt like a fairy princess the second I slipped it on (and one step closer to being Rosie Londoner!)

It’s weird because this is totally not my usual style, I’m never usually this girly but I was instantly drawn to this dress, like it was calling out my name. It also fits like a glove so maybe it was just meant to be!

There’s a great range of dresses up for grabs in the French Connection sale – some for as little as £17! I’ve showcased some of my favourites at the bottom of this post for you.

This particular little beauty is the Ditsy Dorothy dress and was £58 down from £195.

Today I’m Wearing: A floral midi scuba dress

I have to be honest with you. I have no idea what a ‘scuba’ dress is. In my mind, anything with the word ‘scuba’ describing it should be made out of wetsuit material. I thought my confusion would be cleared up on the arrival of this dress but it wasn’t. On the website it’s described as being made out of ‘scuba’ material which it then says is ’95% viscose, 5% elastane’. It is quite a bit thicker than your regular cotton dress but I wouldn’t go scuba diving in it (!). If anyone could clear this up for me that would be awesome.

Material confusion aside, I love this dress. I’d never tried a midi style before as I’m not overly tall and I was worried it would make my calves enormous but you know those times when you get a smile on your face the instant you slip a dress on and you just know it’s right? Yeah I had that.

Open Farm Sunday

Yesterday was Open Farm Sunday. It’s a national event that happens every year where farms all over the country open up their doors/gates and let the public have a nosey around. It’s run by the charity LEAF as a way to get consumers back in touch with where their food comes from. It’s also a great day out for families and kids as lots of farms let you meet the animals, put on tractor rides, have live music and good food (although it varies from farm to farm so check the website for the best ones near you!)

We drove over to Myncen Farm just outside of Blandford and round the corner from Larmer Tree. It was absolutely beautiful and the perfect day for it. We met the 5 week old calves, stroked a chicken and saw some pigs. The queue for the tractor ride was massive so we gave that a miss as I don’t think Hux would have known what was happening anyway and went and grabbed a burger & some cider instead.

I had so much fun stomping around in my wellies and being out in the fresh air in the middle of the countryside. Fingers crossed for sunshine again next year!
