I can’t believe it’s the end of week three already, it’s flying by. Unfortunately the opportunity to get the summer dresses out this week was non-existent as the weather seemed to think we were back in February. Anyway on to the roundup:
I should wear this cardigan more often, the cable ribbing is lovely!
My old reliable navy By Hand London Anna dress with green Miette cardigan.
I love this dress, it’s perfect for throwing on when I really can’t decide what to wear. It looks like white polka dots but they are actually little daisies. I have a bit of a thing about navy and green, I’ve been searching for some navy and green stripy knit fabric for ages without success. I know it must exist somewhere!
I really need to make another one of these, it’s a lovely pattern and fits my frame really well. I actually have some Chambray to make a dress version but it keeps getting bumped down the list.
A horrible cold and wet Monday morning necessitated woolly tights and layers. I love my purple Miette, it’s a quite expensive silk and merino blend yarn but it holds the lace detail well and doesn’t ‘bobble’ like my wool ones.
I finally got around to making this denim shift a couple of weeks ago and I love it!
Grey Deer and Doe Plantain, Grainline Archer and By Hand London Victoria Blazer
At work so lot’s of layers as I really had no idea what the weather was going to do!

Another old faithful dress. I put my boots on again but the weather really warmed up at lunchtime!
The blue thing is getting really silly, I actually wore it every day this week and that was after promising I would try to be more colourful!
I wore my boots for four days and it’s the latter part of May! The boots are now boxed up and ready to go into the loft, if it turns chilly again I’ll just have to put up with chilly goose pimpled legs!
I seem to be obsessed with the weather, all my Instagram posts seem to include a brief weather report. I think it comes from working outside!
Even though I said I wouldn’t, I might actually try and end the month with no repeats. I haven’t really worn any of my summer clothes so if the weather warms up I should be able to get through to the end of the month without any duplicity.
How is everybody else getting along now we are into the final week?
