Outfit Post - Un Mariage Français

 Mr D's cousin got married over the weekend in a beautiful little town near Rouen called Lyons-la-Forêt. It was ridiculously hot which was lovely when we were able to sit outside and drink rosé wine in the sunshine, but not so great when we were in our tiny hotel room with no air conditioning! 

I decided to wear something I knew I would feel confident in because Mr D's cousins are possibly the most beautiful, stylish, svelte gene pool I've ever seen and I have a tendency to resemble the hippo from Fantasia with a fringe. So naturally, I cracked out the Collectif Red Hibiscus Dress :D

Yes, I realised my bag is orange and it clashes but it's all I had!

I do like to match!
My Bettie Bangs really need trimming...
Now, how handsome does Mr D look in his suit with his tie all wonky with a grumpy face because it was too hot and he had to hold my clutch bag? ;)

Now we've had a couple of days to relax and recover from the many, many glasses of wine we're off to Ireland on Friday for another wedding! This time though we're going for a week with all our lovely friends which should either be amazingly fun or end in a Cabin Fever scenario. Paaaancaaaaakes.

OOTD for an Ikea Adventure

My lovely friend Robyn took me on an Ikea adventure today in Milton Keynes. I have a rail on my kitchen wall for utensils and have been wanting to get a larger one for my pots and pans. Ikea is my go-to place to sensible homeware and it didn't fail today because I picked one up for £2 plus 10 hooks for £1!

This is what I wore; 

I haven't worn this dress for ages but it's one of my favourites. I'm running out of leg-wear options at the minute because Tesco don't have as many woolly tights in stock during the summer but it's still chilly and I love my woolly tights! 

And just for your entertainment, here is Robgoblin looking like she has a lampshade for a head.

ps. Whilst my husband was taking my photo outside, the kitties had a stand-off... Bella-cat always looks so cross but she's usually the one who starts it!

Popping In

I thought I'd just do a quick post to say hello and let you all know that things might be quiet for the rest of the month. We're away a lot this month but I had planned lots of scheduled blogs to keep things ticking over. However, I've mentioned before that I'm struggling a little lately and whilst I thought things would have started to pick up by now, they haven't. Well, I'm struggling a lot now and my motivation is the first thing to disappear along with the ability to string coherent sentences together.

I'm finding it difficult to pick myself up at the moment so please forgive me if the only posts you see for a little while are simple ones. You are all such a wonderful lot and I love being a part of the blogging world so please don't think I've lost interest! I haven't at all and I will still be reading and such.

I don't imagine I'll stay away from Twitter, 140 characters is something I can cope with! If you want to say hello, please feel free :) @elenalucie

That's all. I hope you're all enjoying your summers!

We're All Going On A Summer Holiday!

Butlins...train station in the middle of nowhere, same thing really, yes?
Just a little post to say Mr D and I are off to Cumbria tomorrow for a week. We're meeting up with Mr D's family who have already been there for a week. We're staying at a little train station that has been turned into accommodation in the middle of nowhere. Mr D's brother really, really loves trains so they go every year and stay in this same station. It really is in the middle of nowhere and although I imagine day two of steam trains going past the window will make me cross, I'm looking forward to spending a whole week with nothing to do but read books and occasionally watch the Olympics.

I have a few scheduled blog posts for while I'm gone including a nose or two into my holiday wash bag (it's thrilling, I promise). I'm hoping they'll go off as planned but I apologise if it all goes a bit wrong!

Have a lovely week, everyone!

Mrs D x
