summer maxi dress for a picnic

At last, the maxi dress is out of the closet! It is so lovely to be able to get out all my summer dresses and finally wear them. This is the dress I wore for a lovely picnic we went on yesterday. The last time I wore it was here for a party we went to last summer. I definitely don't get enough wear out of my summer clothes due to the bad weather we normally get at this time of year!

 Light, airy and floaty. Perfect for today.

 Thank you Steve for another delicious picnic. Gorgeous! The pear cider went down a treat!

This is definitely a favourite view of mine and it was so peaceful; no one else was around. It felt like it was ours for the evening.

Do you have a special place to go for a picnic?

Have a great weekend everyone.

    1. Thanks so much Chelsea, you are so lovely. You are right about them feeling like pajamas, they are so comfy. Happy weekend to you too!

  2. I love your dress! I only have one maxi dress and definitely need more in my wardrobe. The weather in England have been beautiful! Are you in Derbyshire in those pics? I used to love picnics round Monsal Dale and Dovedale x

    1. Thanks Rowena, I love wearing them. It's been glorious hasn't it. I'm in the woods by Hardwick Hall in Derbyshire, it is so beautiful and only a few miles up the road. Monsal Dale and Dovedale are really lovely too :-)

  4. I am never disappointed in your photos. So lovely. And so jealous (in a good way) of that view.
