You've probably seen this dress before, I bought my 1970's Kati at Laura Phillips maxi from the "20p Man" at the Thursday car boot sale last spring and it's been regularly cropping up on my blog ever since.
Many of my fellow swimmers marvel at "the effort" I put in with dressing for a morning swim. I don't get it, what could be easier than wearing a maxi dress? Bikini on, boots on, frock on, zip it up and off you go, no need to bother about co-ordinating separates or the right shoes. There's nothing worse than wrestling to get dressed after a swim either, despite showering the chlorine makes your skin sticky and trying to pull up skinny jeans is nigh on impossible. With a fabulous frock I rarely even bother with underwear, it's just wash, dry and go.

What a surprise, it's raining again. We're off to the pub later followed by a posh Gujarati dinner in our favourite Indian restaurant. I was going to test out my vintage Clairol heated rollers but by the time I've walked to the pub in this weather I may as well not have bothered.
Have a brilliant weekend whatever you do. See you soon. x
