Carpe diem.

My day so far has been dedicated to moving around the area I live in with my parents as they pursue presents for one another in celebration of being married for 30 years on Monday. It's clear that we weren't the only ones to seize the day and make the most of the sunshine by getting out of our house. 
 I also made the most of the beautiful weather by slipping on a shift dress but I must admit there is a slight chill in the air which I tried to protect myself from through the use of knee high socks. Alas, I failed to remember my arms.

  4. Oh such a lovely outfit. I love how you've styled it with the socks. I love the knee socks, but for some reason my thighs don't.. They always fall down when I walk!
    Hope you're having a lovely weekend in the sunshine!x

    1. Ha mine always fall down too. I am always walking along trying to pull them up and then it turns into some sort of hop, trying to balance myself.
      I hope you are having a wonderful time too :)
