Permanent Vacation

Dress - Charity shop
Perfume Necklace - Charity shop
Shoes - Charity shop
Bag - Charity shop
Cardigan - Gap
 Sunglasses - H&M

 Although I just got back from one trip, I immediately went on another. It being a bank holiday weekend I took the opportunity to go down to Devon and Cornwall for a few days. I had a lovely restful time and visited some places I have never seen before. These photos are from Sunday, spent on the beach in the most glorious sunshine. I haven't worn this dress as much as I'd like. It's from a charity shop and is handmade, possibly in the 1970's. It has a pretty dark floral print, patch pockets and a front zip. I decided to take it up a bit and used the left over hem to make a belt since the original one was missing. I think it's a sundress I can wear into autumn because of the colour. Not bad for £3.50.
 Also thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post. If you have have the chance to visit there I definitely recommend it.
