Water-color

This is a little vintage water-color style print that I'm kind of loving lately.  Now, you know my 'no long sleeve' rule, right?  There is actually a weird summer paradox to it.  Sometimes, in the summer particularly, if I know I have to be out and about for a while outside, I just wear long sleeves.  Heat be damned.  Better to be hot than burned to a crisp.

The hair is not actually blonde anymore...  It's lavender.  But, I am behind on work and new OOTD pictures are suffering :(


Wish these weren't blurry.  Hey, I tried.




I have all these pics, and none quite right.  So yeah, I just posted them all.


Linking up with Patti at Visible Monday 'cause it's been a while!

  2. Love that long sleeved dress on you! Us sun-starved Brits are the opposite, bit or sun and we're all half naked and burnt to a crisp! Give me that bangle, I love it! xxx

  10. I love this dress! Depending on the fabric, sometimes long sleeves aren't so hot.

  11. I love the dress! I love almost any kind of floral print really but the chintzy, pale watercoloury ones like this are always so pretty for summer. Love the shoes you've put with it too!

  13. Oh it's so lovely, lovely, lovely to see you back Becky! Your enormous, chunky jewellery is heavenly!!! last summer I frequently wore a couple of cotton caftans, one with elbow-length, the other with full-length sleeves, which were strangely very cool to wear in the heat because - I don't like to burn either. I'm just so happy you're back!! xoxoxo

  14. Those little shoes just pull it right together! Yup ... sleeves up would look good, but down with the bracelets work as well ... adds a little edge to a dress that might, without your clever styling, look a bit mumsy. It doesn't! Have a great week, Becky ... good luck, and hope you catch up with all that you need to.

  25. You look great in this dress and those cute shoes, I don't wear long sleeves much either on account of having monkey-like arms but they make sense on a hot day. I want to see your lavender hair now! xx

  26. I wish the pics weren't blurry either (I hate when that happens) but hey, I am glad to get a glimpse of the Beck-ster so blurry be damned! I love how you easy-peasy styled the dress- with those yummy caramel leather sandals, and your loose locks. Love the print- and the sleeves. I prefer sleeveless and then I wear a cardi- I know how secretary of me- but the same effect- arms get some UV protections!
