Stormy Skies

#OOTD - yellow maxi shirt dress from Asos

My final post from Mallorca should give you a little taste of just how changeable the weather was while we were there. We had blazing hot sunshine... and full on thunderstorms too. These pictures were taken when some particularly threatening clouds were rolling towards us. But at least my dress was bright and cheerful!

I'm completely in love with this maxi shirt dress from Asos. If you read my Making a Statement post, this is the second dress I found when browsing Rosie's shop. Since then, I've actually seen Sammi from Beautycrush wearing it as well, so it's clearly a blogger favourite! It somehow manages to be both elegant and effortless at the same time, and attracts a lot of compliments. It was definitely the dress I enjoyed wearing most on holiday.

This particular little corner of Mallorca is very special to me and I have so many precious childhood memories from here. It's the perfect place for me to reflect on my life, the choices I have made and the things that are really important to me, and every time I visit, I end up leaving feeling more in touch with myself. This time, I did a lot of thinking about my blog. I've always been someone who needs a creative outlet in life, but I never expected that my little piece of the internet would come to be as important to me as it is. While my family means everything to me and I take pride in my work, my blog is who I am. Does that make sense? I'm sure it must do to all you fellow creatives! Even if I don't post as often as I'd like to, I'm always thinking about it, and I can't imagine ever giving it up. I'd feel like there was something vital missing from my life.

Anyway, enough philosophy! The resolve I made was that no matter how busy life gets, I need to always make time for this blog. Remind me of that next time I don't post for weeks due to work commitments!

Do you make resolutions on holiday? And what do you think of this dress?

  5. I've only been blogging for six months, but I understand where you're coming from. My blog has been the platform with which I can really express and be who I am, as cliche as it sounds.

    I think your mustard dress is absolutely gorgeous against the stormy skies. You look lovely, Kate!
