PRINT SUMMER DRESS

Hi everyone, how are you?
PRINT SUMMER DRESS
Although Australia is in the second month of autumn, we are absolutely blessed with the current weather .  The temperature is in the high 20's (Celsius scale) which equals to above 70F,  so we still wear short sleeves, shorts and sandals, and the parks and walkways are full of people engaged in all kind of activities:  walking, jogging, biking or just taking their dogs for a walk all the time trying to maintain social distancing, of course.  
PRINT SUMMER DRESS
It certainly helps to lift the boredom of lock-down that we all are subjected at the moment and helps us to stay active and positive.  However, the main beaches are closed for sunbathing and only open for a few hours a day so people can take a swim and go for a surf  in the strictly designated and patrolled parts of the beach and you can't just idly sit on a grass or on a bench and enjoy the sun and the smell of the ocean.  Yet, from what I hear about the lock-down rules in other countries across the globe, we are in a much better position, our restrictions are less severe and for that we should be grateful.
PRINT SUMMER DRESS
Usually, around this time of a year, my summer dresses are all packed away till the next summer yet here I am in the middle of April dressed in my summer bestπŸ˜ƒ.  I bought this dress on my last year's trip to Cape Town from a small shop that lined up in multitudes along the beach front of Cape Town when I spotted its bright happy print in a shop window. 
PRINT SUMMER DRESS
It buttons all the way on the front and has a soft belt made of the same fabric which effortlessly defines the waist without creating a distinctive line that visually cuts your body in half which quite often happens when the belt is made of one solid colour.
PRINT SUMMER DRESS
Keeping up with the colourful palette of my dress, I chose yellow earrings and green bracelets for my accessories and since everyone is dressed casually these days, I decided to be otherwise and wore red high heel painted dress shoes instead.  I just refuse to let COVID-19  to take all the fun out of my life πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ.
PRINT SUMMER DRESS
Stay safe and keep well

  1. You are lucky to have such good weather still. It's spring here and April was very warm and sunny, now it's cold and cloudy again. That's a cheerful dress you are wearing!

  5. Our weather has really been mild so far and only started to get hot this past week. Pretty soon we will have to only got out early in the morning and early evening because it will be too hot to just sit or play outdoors.

  6. Your weather sounds so nice for getting outside right now. This dress is so pretty on you--I could see it with one of the colors as a blazer or cardigan as the weather gets cooler, too.

  10. That's a beautiful floral dress and I like the red shoes and yellow earrings with it - so summery! We had a very mild start to autumn too, although we had a bit of a cold snap here in Brisbane it's warmed up a little again now :)

    Hope you had a good weekend! It was a big day here, first day back at school for my son today after 6 weeks - it was closed because of the virus!

    Thanks so much for joining the #WeekdayWearLinkup! The new link up is live on my blog now, I'd love you to join again.
