Outfit Post: Sixties Style Striped Dress

Yesterday’s post was a very emotional one for me but one that seemed timely. Thank you to everyone that took the time to comment and to leave such warm, lovely messages for me. I am truly touched.

But yesterday was very much a celebration. I celebrated my blog’s first birthday, but as a family, we celebrated my sister-in-law Sarah’s 40th birthday.

I wore a new dress from Boden. It’s a sixties style with a high neck and I absolutely love it. It was incredibly comfortable, which was good because I ate a lot of cake.

(My dress and necklace are from Boden. Until Wednesday 21st May, there is 20% off everything)

Love Liz xxx

    Lovely dress I love the sixties anyway – my fave era, for music and fashion. What an amazing cake!

    Okay. Those plates! I own the same ones from the Denby Line! The Energy pattern is our pattern from our wedding registry. I don't know if those are hers or yours, but yay! Someone else loves them as much as I do. 🙂

    Anyhow, OMG, could you be any more pretty in the dress? Love it on you…

    And your sister in law in her pretty Boden frock? The colors are just stunning with her complexion. Happy 40th!!!
