Having spent ALL of half term so far writing reports, today was time for a change. I started the day with brunch with my beautiful friend Lisa. And boy was it a good brunch. I’m not sure that eating about a million calories before 11am was a good idea for my health, but it sure felt good. The sun was shining brightly and seeing as I am supposed to be on holiday I actually took a break and we headed to Dyffryn House and Gardens. They’ve recently opened the house to the public and despite the fact that it is still being renovated, it was well worth a trip. That being said, the house, no matter how well refurbished it is, will always be outshone by the gardens. We spent the whole afternoon walking the extensive grounds and enjoying the sun in such beautiful settings. Plus we pretended that this is our new house 🙂 (In actual fact ours is just the teensiest bit smaller).
In addition to it being a lovely day all round, I wore a dress that hasn’t been blogged about. I made it before starting the blog so it is on Burdastyle, but I thought this would be a nice opportunity to share it here.
There are a lot of photos I know – but at every corner and turn there was another photo opportunity.
The fabric is some synthetic blend that drapes beautifully. I fully lined it with polycotton, which in hindsight was not the right thing to do as it sometimes clings and is rather warm for a summer dress. When wearing it I look like a mixture between Minnie Mouse and Snow White. And I’m good with that!
The day was then topped off by buying a beautiful wooden clock for our actual new home, burgers for dinner, classic James Bond DVD and honeycomb ice cream. Like I said – a pretty ideal day!
