Still shining!

Thursday, September 07, 2017

The huge grin is because every sunny day from here on is a bonus. I apologise to those of you outside of the UK - our default setting is to mention the weather at every possible juncture and is the starting point of any conversation that may be faltering in an awkward social situation. Sun for me means another chance to air yet another summery outfit and this one today was a great bargain.



I paid £9.99 for this vibrant and zingy fine cotton lawn dress which was brand new with the label stating $125. Oh, I do love a bargain! My sandals are from F&F, the belt, broad orange bangle and rings are all pre-loved, necklace too old now to recall and my sunglasses are by Quay Australia.



The cone shaped bracelet is a new addition to my accessories cache - the maker is Jackie Brazil. It's great to find something to wear with my old faithful orange perspex necklace.


I adore the brand name being printed on the fabric.






I'm currently away in Cornwall, so must apologise if the islands are awash with rain in my absence. Today I'll be sitting in the dentist's chair for two very long hours as I start a course of treatment to keep hold of as many teeth as possible as I enter into my 60th year (or is that really my 61st?) - no matter. I'm having work done and it won't be my favourite way to spend time on the mainland. In addition I'm going to be giving a helping hand to Sasha who is returning to the island to live for a while. Another chapter of our lives is about to begin which is always exciting. 

My next post will be at the weekend where I'll be sharing another bit of news... until then, have a great week!

    1. Thanks Laurie. Citrus colours are fab together aren't they? I've just returned from the mainland and suddenly it looks like the seasons have changed!

      See you soon,

  2. Always a treat to see your sunny Scillian skies and this frock is rather lovely too. The zingy lime contrasts so well with the orange. That necklace is fab! xx

  3. Ugh, good luck at the dentist, Anna! Make them freeze everything and give you a happy pill to ease you through it!

    I love this beautiful dress - seeing the makers' names in the pattern is so special and unique. We blather on about the weather here too (more haze today, sigh).

    1. Oh well, I survived my first session with another to follow next month... I reckon you would have fallen for this dress too if you'd seen it, Sheila.

      Did you know that we Scots blether on rather than blather on like you Canadians? Riveting stuff, eh?

      Catch up soon,

  6. The only thing I hate more than the dentist is the doctor. I hope it all goes smoothly!

    Love this bright sunny outfit. Getting a bargain is the BEST.

    1. Our personal experiences of doctors and dentists inform our future relationships with them doesn't it Suzanne? Luckily this new dentist is proving himself to be skillful and adept which is helping with every appointment.

      And oh my word - don't we just love a bargain!

  7. Hooray for sunny days that continue to beckon us to wear our summer frocks and what nots. This is a color that is surprisingly flattering on many complexions and you're one of them dear Anna!
    TEETH... OMG. Now is when we could use a damn tooth fairy!! I share your reluctance to be happy about visiting the dental chamber...eek!!

    1. This may be the last of the summer frocks Jude, as the seasons seem to have changed during my week off-island, but what a lovely summer dress it is.
      The dentist was gentle and thorough, but the ravages of time have caught up with my dental health...hey ho!

      Wishing you a lovely weekend!

    1. My return to the island coincides with a nasty gale pushing Westwards meaning summer may be well and truly over. At least I managed to wear my new frock once before I have to pack it up. The dentist was very understanding re my nervous dispostion and so it wasn't as bad as I expected, thanks Jacqui.
