Dressed for summer: a FSS OTD.

I started off today by dating a cheque the 31st September, it was then pointed out to me that it's in fact the 1st of October! Crazy eh? Its October and was a whisker short of 30 degrees! -no wonder I was a bit confused!

I of course took the opportunity to dig out all of the summer clothes I packed away last weekend and throw together a summer ensemble! This dress is another FSS gem. (I am so glad I got to wear it this year!) It originally belonged to monkey, at first I wasn't so sure as I never wear cream but swapping clothes is all about trying something that you wouldn't normally... right? I decided to play down the cream and bring out the red by pairing this dress with a red cardi, shoes and belt...
I think it worked really well, It certainly suits my shape. Once again a big thanks to monkey and FSS, thumbs up for swapping clothes! If you are free on the 29th October and in the Leeds area you should pop along to the plus size clothes swap being organised by Kirsty over at Fatty Unbound. Alas I can not make it :-(

Today has been the best day- it involved eating lots of nice food including gorgeous French patisserie cakes 
for lunch and a candle-lit barbecue for dinner (we had the heat today but not the light- well it is October don't you know!). I got to spend the day with my lovely man and my folks, together we toasted the new house with a glass of champagne! (something I have been waiting to do for a long time!)

I hope you folks have enjoyed the sunshine and broke out some lovely cool clothes!
