Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
It was a lovely long one here Down Under with some lovely sunny weather (except for today), but for 3 days we got to sun it up in the pool and have a lovely time!
Hat: My Red Lippy Panama:
I must admit I am terribly un-sun smart, and only ever think of wearing a hat when at the beach (and not even that at times). When asked to wear a hat to my Lil' Brigs #1's 'pre-school's picnic lunch, I realized I didn't have a hat, and found out about 'My Red Lippy' later on that day.
After being diagnosed with a melanoma at 5 months pregnant with her second child, Sarah Curtis sought out beautiful hats with wide brims that actually kept the sun out to protect one's my skin. After much disappointment of never finding the right hat that both looked great and was fully functional, she started ‘My Red Lippy’. These Panama hats are handwoven in Ecuador, as Sarah works with an Ecuadorian Co-op that helps women and children through teaching the a trade, and have a wider brim than your usual Panama hat, to offer greater sun protection. Reading about Sarah Curtis' story made me realize I really should be more sun-smart, and it's so great that I can do that whilst still being stylish!
Dress: Sundry Clothing (available at Shopbop):
You all know about my love for stripes, when I first put this dress on I had to do a double-take to inspect the fabric composition tag, as it is so so uber soft! I will be wearing this a lot in the next few months.
Shoes: Dries Van Noten sandals (from 2009 collection)
Bag: Celine Navy Trio
Watch: Larsson Jennings Chain Metal watch in black (available at Liberty, from Larsson Jennings and Net-a-Porter)
Sunglasses: Jimmy Fairly
Skincare: Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery with SPF 50 (available at Selfridges, Adore Beauty and David Jones)
Pressed Juices (black!) Lemonade - yes, black! It is part of their new Spring Range, and I was intrigued, for those who are too, the black is due to the Activated Charcoal, which you cannot taste at all, it is simply an unsweetened lemonade, very refreshing, actually.
Johanna Basford colour-in postcards: bought this 'book' of postcards with Lil' Brigs #1 whilst on our 'date' at the Art Gallery last week, she loves it! (you can find the book version here - which I have since bought, as well as another set of the postcard book, it is too cute!)
Thanks to Gina at Torstar and Sarah Curtis for my hat, I love it!
Thanks to Kate at Bell Fashions for my Sundry dress, it is so beautifully soft I want to live in it!
