Hello dearies! I have a “lake-side picnic” inspired outfit to share with you all today that I hope you’ll enjoy (especially because there’s a giveaway at the end… 😀 ). Charlotte and I had such a fun time photographing this shoot, even though the weather wasn’t exactly “picnic-perfect”.
This whole outfit centered around Lilla Rose’s Flexi of the Month, Anchor’s Aweigh, which our Lilla Rose consultant, Mrs. Ramm, asked me to style for you all. This flexi has such beautiful aqua-marine shades of blue that I wanted to echo and compliment in my outfit. Somehow the red just fit, though it’s not an outfit that necessarily screams “seaside”. I think it lets the flexi speak for itself in its “seaside-ness”. Oh, and by the way, when we received this flexi, I realized that normally we girls wear a mini, so I was a bit nervous to put it on to see if it would fit (the one we received was an extra-small), but surprisingly it stayed in practically all day! Tally-ho, hooray, and all that!
Our family doesn’t hardly ever go picnicking any more, even though we seldom did so when I was younger. However there’s just something so romantic and dreamy about packing up a lunch and going to some spot by a lake, or a park in the country. This particular picnic brought to mind an old song called: “Wait ‘Till the Sun Shines, Nellie”, because it had just been raining, and it almost seemed as if this photo-shoot would never happen. But all we had to do was wait till the sun came shining down, and “picnic point” was ready and waiting.
And now, the moment you all have been waiting for! One of YOU will win an Extra-Small of this month’s FOTM, Anchor’s Aweigh! Are you excited?! Then check out the giveaway below.
