Day 659 - I've Got Gadgets And Gizmos A-Plenty

Shoes: Black wedge 'Superstar' Bertie 

So speaking of wearing the same outfit twice, I had a bit of a dilemma on Sunday and ended up wearing the exact same dress and shoes that I'd already worn earlier in the week.  Shocker I know!  I was going on a birthday picnic with the family and these shoes are the most 'sensible' I own.  I knew there would be grass, sand, chips and dirt and so these covered all bases and are not too pretty to get dirty!  I'd really wanted to wear this dress because it had been so comfortable and it was scorching on Sunday and this is light and airy but has good coverage for sun exposure.  I had no idea how much of a challenge it was to remain tan-free (or in my case burn-free), there was absolutely no shade, we were extremely exposed and I could feel myself melting after two minutes!  I hate that feeling that you're actually 'sizzling'!  I had my SPF50 on and a huge, pretty parasol for shade and thankfully it worked wonders and I'm still as blue as usual!  I'm quite a stickler for sun-safety if you can't already tell!  These pics aren't the greatest and I was rather dishevelled and icky-sticky by the time I took them.  Today and yesterday I've not been properly dressed, so normal service will resume as of tomorrow as I'm all caught up on the backlog.  The weather has taken yet another turn and it was rather chilly today.  

Wearing: Parrot print dip-hem dress Dorothy Perkins, cardigan Be Beau at Matalan, sunglasses Prada, scarf Fafi/MAC, multi-charm necklace Debenhams, blue ring my Granny's, owl ring Primark, flat owl ring (part of set) H&M, frog ring and teapot pearl bracelet Miss Selfridge, bird on branch ring Topshop.  
Fit: True to size, back zip so you don't have to adjust the buckles every time. 4 3/4" wedge heel.
Comfort: No issues with these.
