OOTD – A Trip To The Common

Earlier today we took a little trip to Mitcham Common to go ‘pond dipping’ which is basically fishing some water out of a pond and seeing hat little creatures you can find. My oldest daughter loves nature and the weather was beautiful so it was a lovely day out. I love doing free stuff with the kids and this was a lovely old-fashioned way to have fun – not a games console in sight!

The creatures did not disappoint and we managed to tick lots of little water bugs out and ticked them off on a list we had downloaded. the highlight was definitely these cute little tadpoles which were well of their way to being frogs!

Today I wore a 1970s sundress which I bought on Ebay. I love this dress as it’s a nice unlined cotton – perfect for the very hot weather we are fin ally having in London right now. I teamed it up with some simple gold bangles and a pair of ballet pumps. Although next time I go fishing around in a pond I might also pack my wellies!

I also had my hair cut this week! It was a very drastic change but I’m so happy with it. I’m going to try lot’s of vintage hairstyles that I just couldn’t do with my really long hair.

    Love (!) your new length. It’s tremendously becoming, classic and beautiful.

    We used to that as youngsters, too, down at the Pacific Ocean in Vancouver- one stood to pull out anything from a wee crab to a teeny starfish.

    What a lovely outfit! I imagine it kept you cool in this heatwave that the UK is currently experiencing.

    On a side note, I didn’t know you was from around that area of London. I am too – well no more as I have recently picked up sticks and moved to Wales. Glad you enjoyed your family day on the common 🙂
