I find it so difficult to dress in hot weather! I don't like showing too much bare leg, I love wearing jackets and usually find sandals quite uncomfortable. It doesn't leave me with many options! I do love how summery it is though, makes me want to sit by a pool all day and have someone bring me ice creams!

I saw this skirt in Topshop when I was queueing at the till and the more I looked at it the more I liked it so I grabbed it -  proper impulse buy! It isn't something I'd normally wear and this is my first dip hemmed skirt but I'm definitely going to be buying more. Everything is so much easier when you don't need to worry about flashing your bum/ weather incidents.

I went into work today and was told I could leave at lunchtime to go and see the olympic torch at Ludlow which was quite exciting (and such a bonus getting half a day off!). So mum and I drove into town and watched it all going on, it all seemed to go by very quickly - I almost missed the lady with the torch because of the two big buses on either side of her! We waved our flags and blew our whistles and got all patriotic. It was a lovely day and there was such a buzz in Ludlow, I'm glad I went!
