Spring is all about sunny days, ice creams, breeze and flowy dresses. I love a good sunny day in the UK, and like most UK people I got excited when it happened and got out my favourite dress. I love wearing light flowy fabrics for spring and summer. They look elegant, feel comfortable and let your skin enjoy the weather and breathe.
When it’s a sunny day in the UK one must enjoy it. The best way is to put on a summery dress and go for a walk in the park. I love spending some quality time in the park with my family, soaking up some sun and watching my son play and run around. Believe me; it’s a great break from the screens. But the best part of the day wasn’t just the weather. It was a double celebration weekend for me. First, my blog turned 5, and I would love to thank you, readers, for sharing this incredible journey with me. Second, it was mother’s day, and the most apt way to celebrate both these things would be with some style.
I love how you get pampered on mother’s day. And it’s something every mother needs and deserves. I started my day by visiting the lamington spa for some much-needed pampering and love. I went and treated myself at Zou Bisou Café known for their cakes, shakes and frozen yoghurt.
A great way to idle away on the weekend is a trip to Jephson’s Garden in Leamington. It’s a great place for a family day. We did boating, walked around in the greenhouse, watched the spring blooms, the ducks and played in the sensory garden.

The dress I wore on the day is from Joy. It’s a perfect day out outfit with deep red rose prints. The Solange rose print slip dress comes with spaghetti straps and black lace detailing on the side slits. The detailing of the dress is very feminine and romantic with a subtle style. It’s a great dress for a romantic summer vacation to the beaches as well. I paired the dress with a choker necktie, black heels and a small black handbag. If you aren’t comfortable with strappy dresses, then you can always team it up with a light black jacket or a scarf. But go for a simple cover up and let the dress be the hero. A printed jacket or scarf may clash with the printed on the dress, so team up the dress with a solid coloured jacket or scarf.
And hey, don’t forget that when out in the sun – Always carry your sunnies and apply sunscreen.
