As those of you who follow me on insta will have seen- I spent this weekend in Prague! I haven’t been on holiday since last June so a little break was just what the Dr ordered- after the busyness of Easter Sunday, it was perfect timing!
We were so amazingly lucky with the weather, we’re talking 20 celsius/68 fahrenheit and plenty of sunshine. I was basking all day. Not wearing bulky layers was a dream- just like this dress.
For years I shy-ed away from pastels, partly because I like bright colours but mainly because I was sure they’d wash me out and I’d look pasty and gross. I’ve always been jealous of people in cute pastels, a friend of mine wore the most gorgeous lilac dream dress to a formal and I spent all night wishing I had her colouring. Now I realise it’s not about colouring, it’s about confidence.
So this mint dress is still the only one like it in my wardrobe- but it’s not the last pastel you’ll see me in. These gorgeous frill hem details are totally on-trend and super cute, as is the lace inserts on the skirt. It makes it distinctive from all the other skater dresses and is the loveliest feminine detail.
This dress was £7 in the ASOS sale. £7 pounds. It’s got fab thick fabric, cute details and I have no idea how it got to be priced so low- but it just goes to show you should never sleep on the sale section!
I wanted to contrast the dress- and make it extra colourful- so I popped on this bright yellow belt. It came with another dress but I love yellow and mint as a colour combo.
You can’t see awfully well but I was wearing these pink origami crane earrings, which I love, from etsy to match with some very comfy and practical flats. Add some sunglasses and my backpack and it was perfect for a summer walkaround.
If you like my look, shop my style!
When I arrive somewhere I love to just grab my bearings from where I’m staying, so we took a little wander around Old Town:
It was Easter Weekend for the Orthodox church so we got to hear some traditional Czech Music and see the cute Easter stalls and decorations
We stopped for lunch at a place we’d pre-found (this is what travelling with a foodie is like) for Tapas-style Czech food- the perfect way to try a whole bunch of new cuisine!
We then wandered around the Jewish district, saw one of the Synagogues and their profoundly moving cemetery and Holocaust museum
Prague is a gorgeous and historic city and I may have been exhausted (two hours sleep) but was touched by how much history and beauty we saw. The gorgeous architecture, the touching tributes and the buzz of Easter.
I’ll share about day two in another post!
Bye for now,
