This weekend has been one of celebrating the 50th birthday of Jane, one of  my dear friends.
The festivities started last night with a ceilidh at a beautiful village hall high up in the Yorkshire Dales. The food was divine and the band was amazing.
And I just love being flung around the dance floor. It was the most fun I’ve had in a long long time.

I wore my Fever Provence dress (from Aspire Style). I found it to be perfectly swishy. And my Boden yellow sandals permitted hours of comfortable dosy doh-ing.

My parents brought these beautiful sunflowers when they came to babysit last night. I’ve always loved yellow.

The celebrations continued today with afternoon tea at Jane’s home. 

Here’s my contribution, lemon daisy cupcakes and Wimbledon cupcakes (strawberries and cream).

My dress is from Joules three or four years ago and the cardigan is a similar age from Boden. 

My yellow accessories are all from Boden’s current collection.

Palma Sandal, Dandelion, Boden £59

I love broderie and scalloping so this Boden dress, (from 2012 I think), is a great favourite. It’s versatile and I wear it dressed down with flip flops and dressed up with strappy sandals and jewellery. It’s one of my “go-to” dresses and I always feel good in it.
The detail is just beautiful.

I’ve always loved vintage style dresses, especially from the 40s and 50s so I was thrilled to be invited to take part in a style challenge hosted by retro-inspired brand Aspire Style.
The brief is to take a dress from their collection and style it for the ” The Perfect Summer Look”.

I chose the Provence Dress by Fever because what could be more perfect for summer than the combination of sunny yellow and marine blue?
The shape is so feminine and the print so vibrant.

It’s such a happy dress.

This outfit is featured on the Aspire Style Facebook Page as part of a blogger “Style Off” competition.

I would be hugely grateful if you would follow the link and go and “Like” my photograph. The winner will be the outfit with the most likes.
