I found this skirt at Savers towards the end of last year (along with a HUMONGOUS pink petticoat; someone must've dropped off their old square dancing stuff) and knew it had to be mine. I don't have much dark red in my wardrobe, which seems a bit odd as I really quite like it. I also love that it is more than a circle and has an elastic waist – perfect, really, because we were having some friends over for dinner that evening and that firm, no-elastic belt would be coming off!
We had a few things to do earlier in the day, and ended up driving past this huge patch of dried yellow grass. And, well, I couldn't resist the idea of purple against all that yellow..! It was such a hot steamy day, with a storm trying to break. Can you tell it was a bit windy? Or, rather, very windy! So much for secure updos! We had a much-needed afternoon coffee at Boundary in Preston, which is at the end of this very pretty little side street. Extra bonus points for the flowers toning with my skirt nicely there, and to the bike next to this gorgeous poochie!
