I’m not sure what happened, maybe it’s the desperately prolonged Winter, maybe it’s only desperate dreaming of the Summer holidays to keep us going through the snow in April. OK it’s just desperate! I bought a swimsuit…for the first time in 7 years…I know this because my youngest was a year old and I took her to baby swim sessions so I bought a couple of tankinis then. I showed this new swimsuit to my kids and their silence was deafening.
Eventually my Tween girl piped up with ‘You need to lose weight’. Sometimes you want kids to lie! It does look tiny but believe me it has a lot of stretch and hold (in), know what I mean? And no, I won’t be modelling it….at least not until the Summer holidays 🙂I also bought this 60’s style tunic dress. I’d seen the one by Banana Republic in their Mad Men Collection but I don’t like that it’s 100% silk that needs to be dry cleaned. This one is a soft synthetic and machine washable. It’s a day dress and can also be a beach cover and layered for the cooler season. I love the colours and the scale of the print. Let me back up a bit and say that originally I wanted a Pucci dress and the style I instinctively went for was exactly this shirt dress tunic. However I never found the print I liked so in the end I decided that the actual garment was more important to me than the Pucci print itself.
