This is what I wore to a picnic barbecue last Sunday. I didn't feel that well on Sunday, and so I took myself to the doctor, who diagnosed me with ... BRONCHITIS. Ain't life grand.
It's always the way, though, isn't it? You finally complete something momentous and time-consuming, and then ta da! You get sick. I'm not feeling too bad though. Armed with pharmaceuticals and a lot of water, I should be just fine.
In other news, I love this dress. I suppose it's technically an overdress. It came with a white slip, but I decided to mix it up a bit and wear it with a pink petticoat. I also have a navy silk velvet ribbon I like to wear with this dress, around my waist. It wasn't a cheap dress - and shock! horror! it's not a vintage dress - but I had been looking for something similar for a long time, and when I saw that it was 75% off, I caved.
And it is the perfect dress for a summer picnic.

• Lisa Brown lace overdress, bought in my hometown, of all places.
• Vintage neon pink petticoat, eBay.
• White thongs/flip flops/jandals, bought for as little money as possible. I know they're not stylish at all, but come on. I'm AUSTRALIAN. You can't fight city hall.
