Today has been another very hot and humid one, something we’re not very used to here in North Yorkshire! I wanted to wear shorts but with something a little smarter than a t shirt.

This grey scalloped edge top is another favourite from several summers ago. 

My statement necklace is courtesy of Happiness Boutique, an online treasure trove of beautiful clothes and accessories.

I love the grey and neutral tones with the (almost neon) yellow.

It arrived beautifully packaged with a bookmark featuring a lovely quote about happiness.

My necklace was a gift from Happiness Boutique. All opinions are 100% honest and all content is my own.

Well if the weather forecasters are to be believed, today marks the start of a heatwave predicted to last for around a week. It was certainly warm and bright today and it enabled me to get several loads of washing dried within a very short time. Between working and doing a supermarket shop I did a little gardening and ate my lunch al-fresco. 

I really do try to make the most of every sunny opportunity and am fortunate that I work from home.

This dress has been a favourite for at least four summers. I never tire of the floral rose pattern and the feminine silhouette.

I have a few containers on my patio and this beautiful rose came into bloom over the weekend. It has the most beautiful delicate fragrance and I feel happy just looking at it.

I wore this dress with different accessories (on this exact date last year, co-incidentally), for a tea party.

Another warm (but not sunny) day, another chance to wear a dress!

My friend and boutique co-owner Sally and I were out on the road again with our pop-up accessories boutique at another corporate venue close to Skipton. 

Our scarves always proved popular but we have been amazed by how successful the jewellery range has been. In fact we sold out of the wrap bracelet that I’m wearing today. We are looking to expand the range and are hoping to source new stock next week.

It is the copy deadline for Aspire magazine tomorrow so it always frantic as we have to check proofs and send the final few articles to our graphic designer, so that’s what I spent the later part of the afternoon doing.

And this evening I’m going out with my friend Louise to see Pam Ayers in the Grassington Arts Festival. I had the privilege of interviewing her for Aspire so it will be lovely to see her show.

I love this dress. I first wore it for a Valentine’s dinner date so it I always feel happy in it.

I styled this dress in two other different ways in my blog post about transitional dressing. It is really very versatile.
