|Dress – Trashy Diva by Candice Gwinn|
That’s right – I took two gingham dresses with me! For some reason, being in the country side makes me want to wear gingham. Maybe it’s because gingham is so rustic and wholesome? Before I left I mentioned that I took some new dresses and old dresses too, so some of you might be already familiar with this one. Earlier this year in summer (well, my first summer since technically I’ve had summer twice this year!) when it was very hot I wore this dress without the bow. The bow is one of my favorite things about this dress, but I love how it looks either way!
This week I have spent quite a lot of time picking berries: wild strawberries, blue berries and today I noticed that the raspberries have started to ripen. When we took these photos this vintage-looking airplane was circling overhead, and I was quite surprised to see an older model like this in the sky! I showed these photos to my grandpa, who worked as an air crash investigator in the 50s and 60s, and he was able to identify the plane as an Antonov An-2. This particular model originated in the USSR in 1947 and was affectionately nicknamed “Annushka” – which is exactly what my grandpa calls me!
