It seems that Summer is finally here and with that, the smell of barbecue can be felt all around. My friend Daniela invited us round and we had a lovely day just eating, sitting in the sun, playing with Sasha and not doing much else. Perfect!

Outfit details: Sunglasses – H&M, Top – George, I think, Skirt – Primark, Sandals – Irregular Choice (via Ebay).

The skirt, unbelievably, is from Primark. I think that it looks like a novelty 50’s skirt, with all those stamps and letters. The sandals are inspired by traditional Japanese geta shoes. They’re more comfortable than what they might look like and no, I didn’t fall over! I’m joining Patti’s Visible Monday! Edited to add: also shared at Tres Chich Fashion Thursday at Mama and More.

Have you started barbecue season yet?

    A great flash back to a 1950’s bar b que. Though honestly you would look beautiful in any era.

      Unbelievable weather I might add. Too bad it only lasts for a few days…

    You look gorgeous, love that novelty printed skirt and your adorable doggie companion.
    Hasn’t it been wonderful?
    I’m afraid barbecues have no appeal to me, I’m the only vegetarian in our gang! xxx

    Your skirt is pretty and looks like your barbecue is a lot of fun. Cute doggie.

    I *heart* those sunglasses! The skirt is really cool, too – I love kitschy patterns like that, and I never seem to find them for myself.

    Lovely you. Sweet, simple and adorable. You have to be pretty cute, Sara, to upstage such a pretty puppy! Sasha’s looking all clipped for summer…. I need to send her a beefcake photo of our boy, Pip. He has similar terrier good looks.
    The barbeque looks yummmm. (I need to stop looking at food porn late in the evening … yikes.!)

    Thank you for linking up to Shoe Shine too! I love those shoes, but I cannot abide anything between my toes. Your little pup is adorable. I’m also admiring your beautiful ink – the simplicity of the hearts is really quite stunning.
