Made By Me #157

Happy Friday and a very happy bank holiday weekend!  This is one of the dresses I have made with my upcoming holiday in mind.  We are going to the South Coast so it seems only right to have a few nautical themed outfits planned, right?!  The fabric is a seersucker which reminds me of summer holidays as a kid - pretty little seersucker dresses and numerous ice creams.  I only ever remember long sunny days from my childhood, fingers crossed for a few of those on our UK break.  The fabric hangs beautifully and I love the textured feel of the seersucker.  I am always looking for an excuse to crack out my lobster necklace, he is just too awesome and I love the way he dances as you move.  Yep I decided my lobster is a he and his name is Lobby in case you were wondering!

I have had my haircut since the photos were taken, will hopefully share that with you soon.  I really like how it has turned out, big props to my super talented brother in law Lee!  NashWhite are opening a second salon when we return from holiday. I can't wait to see the salon finished, the decor is always outstanding.

Dress: Made by me using Seersucker fabric by Cosmo
Shoes: Cath Kidston
Necklace: Tatty Devine 

We are busy decided what we are going to do for both our summer holiday next year and my impending 40th birthday (DOOM!) I have my eye on Santorini for the summer, just waiting to see what happens in Greece before we book it.  I can't make my mind up about a birthday weekend trip though, Gray has suggested maybe Paris as he knows I have been envious of Roisin's Paris fabric buys.  Where is good for a weekend break at the end of January?  Guaranteed to be awful on the weather front where ever we go but I am more than used to that now.  I have found a competition to win a weekend break in Paris so am going to try my luck with that, the competition hashtag includes PerfectParis so maybe I should take that as a sign for my perfect weekend.  Keeping everything crossed!  In the meantime if you have any January getaway suggestions for me let me know, if you've blogged them please link me up in the comments, pictures always help sway me.
