Floaty Maxi Dress And Diamante Sandals: Creative Mondays Link Up

Happy Creative Monday lovelies. I hope you have all had a lovely weekend?

We have been busy rushing around all weekend and today I am ready to just chill. I do not like to say this but the weather is really wearing me out. I am so tired and keep getting sunstroke with awful migraines!

We could do with some rain now to water what is left of the grass too. All our lovely green grass is now clumps of burnout yellow grass.

On Saturday my Daughter and I went out shopping for the morning in Nottingham to spend some of her Birthday mornings.

We wanted to get out nice and early to beat the football crowds.

My Daughter took a few photos of my outfit down by the canal.

One of my favourite spots in Nottingham.

The water was so nice and peaceful and so was the pubs this early.

I bet they were packed a few hours later on such a nice day.

I wore a nice floaty maxi dress and some fake diamante sandals.

Only one problem with these sandals! I can not run in them.

On the way to the train station we were running late and as I could not run in these, we just missed the train by a matter of seconds and had to wait 30 minutes for the next one.

Oh well, such a nice day, the time flew by.

    What a lovely area in Nottingham Claire. Great dress – perfectly floaty for this hot and dry weather. I need to rescue my garden plants – but it’s too late for the grass! xx

    Floaty dresses are a must in this weather! We have that fake grass in our garden (it was there when we moved in, I’m not sure it’s something I’d have gone for myself) It does look very green though! And no mowing is nice! In this hot weather it does get hot to walk on though which seems weird, proper lawn never really gets hot does it?

      I like the idea of fake grass Julie. My lawn is so patch as it is, now yellow patches 🙁

    Maxi dresses are the best because not only are they pretty but it’s one and done! I am sorry you had missed the train within mere seconds but your sandals are pretty look if that’s any consolation!! The things we do for fashion right?! I am so glad you and your daughter had a great weekend shopping and spending time together. No other better way to spend a weekend if you ask me. Happy Monday!

      Thank you Maureen. I do not mind missing the train in hot weather, nothing worse than missing it in the cold and rain though.( done that a few time!) 🙂

    Claire, your dress is beautiful! And such gorgeous shots by the water. The perfect backdrop for sunny summer pictures! I hear you about the heat though…it has been so hot and humid here as well that I cannot even tolerate being outdoors. I am already ready for Fall!
