Polka dots and pubs

Hello everyone,

ARGH Monday already, the weeks do seem to be going by quickly lately, but then so do the weekends. Blink and you'll miss them.

I did manage to get to the shops on Friday although I went wearing two coats, which kind of worked to keep me dry.

I bought a black with white spots maxi skirt, a really interesting pack of replica leaflets, ration books etc from WWII (just to deviate slightly, I'm really interested in women's roles in the War, and last weeks Stylist magazine - a fantastic free read if you get it in your local newsagents, or even online - had an article about that exact thing, and also the recommendation of a book by Sarah Waters called the Night Watch which follows four women through their experiences of the war. I've ordered it and will do a review after I've read it - I haven't done one of those for ages!) and lastly, a gorgeous green with white spots dress from BHS, probably from the 80's. I haven't worn it out yet but it was too good not to try on and take a picture of!

I don't know why I look so grumpy in these photos! Also I've realised that we have a proper camera now, time to lose the taking pictures of yourself look on my blog I think! Although when the camera falls off a carefully positioned stack of books for the 100th time I may have to reconsider.

I went to Portsmouth on Saturday to see some friends, and I just wanted to show you the best named pub EVER. What do you think?


Lastly, fantastic news that I now have over 40 followers, thanks to everyone who follows me! I'm going to gather/sort out some things for the giveaway and hopefully have it up and running within a week. Exciting!

Brilliant pub name and cute dress on you. Sarah Waters is a great author, I've enjoyed all her books although if you haven't read her before be aware there's usually quite a lot of lesbian sex in them so not one for the train!

Hope you don't mind another follower ? :0) I'm in your neck of the woods too, so will be looking forward to all your posts x

Fantastic green dress, it hangs lovely and the belt shows off your waist beautifully!

I'll have to seek out the pub next time I'm heading that way.
