When I was still pregnant I got myself some dresses "in advance" so to say, of which I was not able to  - like planned to- wear all of them last summer. I was quite keen on getting to premiere this pale yellow dress but tried it one once in spring and it did not look good on me at all. But I was rather sure that could not really be the case and gave it another go and alas, it was just fine.

 It's a rather plain, straight dress in semi- thick cotton but with nice button- and pleat detailing in the front. The dress is 1960's vintage (via Love Miss Daisy.) I always thought of it as the lemon dress but the color is perhaps more like lemon ice cream. Or limoncello ice cream. Which is even better.

   So It got to come out for a little and a lot of sunshine and a walk on town.

Lovely! I have a limoncello coloured eyelet dress which is more 1950s maybe early 60s. I wear it with red or hot pink things. I like it with your white beauty queen heels! Your pine tree and water and cabin pics the other day were special. I keep thinking about them. I imagine if I ever become demented in my old age, I will believe the images which I'm sure I'll still remember, were from my own past. Ha ha : ). We have some environments up at our north coast beaches, on the way to and in the hinterland behind Noosa, very similar here in Queensland, Australia! I read Finn Family Moomintroll as a kid. Loved it! Now I've seen some real photos of Finnland courtesy of you! Ps we have Finnish neighbours at the back of our place. They swim in their pool all through our winter. Justine xx

I like your lovely limoncello ice cream dress. The colour is so pretty and it looks beautiful on you. Great shape! Unfortunately I don't have anything in that colour. I even love the word: limoncello ice cream! Lovely!
