I was beyond delighted when I woke up yesterday morning and saw the sun streaming through the clouds again – it felt like it had been a couple of months since our last sunny day, even though it was, er, only last week and just seemed so long ago because the memory had been thoroughly washed away by last week’s downpours!

In any case, it was the perfect opportunity to debut my new Monsoon dress, bought at the weekend on a trip to Belfast (details of which coming soon!) – which is just perfect for sunny weather. It’s light and loose, with a drop waist – although for this I belted it, because the drop waist felt a little too balloon-like for a lunch date. It would, however, be perfect for a summer holiday. It’s really light and comfy and I love that the pattern will hide any rogue sweat marks that make it past the Sure test! Click through for more pics … 

This was my attempt at doing the fashion-blogger walk. Y’know, the casual, Rumi Neely-style stroll across the street. I think we could call that a fail . . .
