I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Fashion | A Watermelon Dress Among the Green

Posted on

Now some of you might recall me ranting and raving about Collectif Watermelon dress, well guest what? I eventually ended up buying it. Here is a watermelon dress among the green.

Off course I would end up buying it, c’mon you guys should know me by now! It was inevitable that I would actually ended up with this dress. How could I not, when it’s a fricking watermelon dress.

It was love at first sight, and as soon as I published my post on the Collectif watermelon dress I went and brought it. However, there was a good few months before I could wear it. I brought the dress right on the crisp of the weather turning just warm enough to wear a dress outside, but still kind of cold in the evening. So overall I was waiting for summer to properly wear this.

When Richard suggested Isabella Plantation last week as a good place to chill and to take some photos, I knew that this was the opportunity I have been waiting for and I could finally wear the dress.

Isabella Plantation is a park within a park, it’s part of Richmond Park. It’s an area of ‘outstanding beauty’, if you read the write-up on it. But basically it a park area where there is loads of plantation, loads of flowers, a few different ponds and a quiet place to chill.

Now the weather has turned properly summery and the sun has turned up it temperature gauge, the best thing to do in the heat is to chill out in the park.

As Richard and I are both keen photographer –well he does it as a profession; we also saw this as a good opportunity to play around on our camera. So we ended up snapping away on the ducks, plants and anything else that took our fancy.

Anyway enough talk, here is me doing my outfit of the day in a watermelon dress.  Let me know if you get the Collectif Watermelon dress, you will be mad to miss out on such a fun dress.

    That is such a fun dress, really suits you too. You ever been abroad and had a watermelon ice lolly? they are so good just which you could get them here and that would make a fab photo having one wearing the dress!

    OMG Anna, I LOVE that dress and it’s gorgeous on you! The location you took the photos at is the perfect back drop too. We have a watermelon festival in the town I grew up in and it would be so fun to wear this to it. I would wear it all summer though, it’s the best.
