Happy St Georges Day!

Happy St Georges Day everyone!  Anyone celebrating it?  It does make me sad that more English people celebrate St Patricks day than celebrate St Georges day.  I am going on a pub crawl with some friends to celebrate, lets hope there are lots of beer gardens involved!

It's been so nice recently, my concession to the weather is I have switched my tights and pumps for leggings and sandals. That's about as far as I go.  I really don't feel comfortable bearing flesh.  I never ever go either bare legged or armed, am I alone in this or do any of you cover up regardless of the weather?

Dress: Emily & Fin

I adore this dress the shape is so flattering and for those of you complaining about how short most dresses are it's a few inches longer and comes to just above my knees.  It comes in a variety of prints and patterns so you can snap up more than one!  I really love Emily and Fin, they are the makers of my absolute favourite dress.  I haven't shared this dress with you as mine are currently too small but I own this dress in every colourway they have ever made... as soon as it fits again it will be on the blog!  

Have a great St Georges Day lovelies, raise a beer or three and celebrate with me :)


  1. bare legs are reserved purely for holiday! x

  2. ooh lovely!
    I wear a cardi and tights all the time, summer is not my friend x

  3. I sometime wear bare legs, it depend on the length of the dress. It has to be knee length or below. I dont have the best legs to be honest! They look much better covered up haha!
    Love the print of the dress and its such a nice shape!
    I know what you mean about nobody celebrating St Georges Day, its as if people are afraid to be proud to be English. Why cant we be proud of out nationality!
    I am going out for a hog roast and a disco, for £10 you can't go wrong!

  4. I love leggings with dresses, especially short dresses :)
    yours is gorgeous here!


  5. I didn't even realise that it was St George's day but I am actually Irish haha even though we moved to London when I was 2 so I'm allowed to celebrate St Patrick's day!! Gorgeous dress, I love the print and it look fab with the red accessories!!

    I'd rather get my legs out because I hate my chubby arms and in this heat it's hard to stay covered up completely. Don't me scared, just get em out lol!!!

    Have a fun pub crawl =)

    Bow Dream Nation xx

  6. nah i'm with you on keeping the legs/arms covered regardless of weather. arms especially! i actually braved a sunday morning walk with a knee length dress on last week without tights.. never again! i felt like a right knob! haha xx

  7. I'm happy to go sleeveless, as my arms are pretty toned, but will never, ever publicly go bare-legged! Even at a skinny size eight (usually I'm a 10/12) I still had massive calves. Leggings and pumps or sandals under dresser are my go-to when it's warm. However, living in Scotland means that I don't have to worry about it quite so much!

  8. I've done exactly the same as you, & swapped my tights for leggings! Oh & lighter cardis, rather than chunky wooly ones I guess..

    I love that dress - it's a great shape & print - gorgeous :) & I like that it's a little bit longer too.. I've never heard of Emily & Fin - shall have to go & check them out!

    By the way, you got a little mention on my latest blog post - sorry it's taken so long :/

  9. I feel a bit naked bare armed, so I'd rather cover up my top half. lovely print on your dress, have a great night out.


I love comments, thank you xx
