Oh all right, it probably isn't, but the UK is basking in some high temperatures this week, and what better way to celebrate than with a vintage Hawaiian frock or two?
Colourful, cotton, and with prints bold enough to invite you in for coffee on a first date - what's not to love?
The green dress is 1950s, found on a three-items-for-£5 table at the flea market (which means it cost £1.666666666666667, according to my calculator).
The pink dress is 1960s, and I think it cost £5 on a sale rail at a vintage fair because it had a hole in it. Which I fixed.
Naturally, a frock with a loud print is just the thing to wear for the annual extravaganza which is Park Night.

Excuse the gurning - can't take them anywhere.

I had a lovely potter around the flea market in Chesterfield today; Jo and I haven't been for a while, so it was great to be back.
I bought a 1960s curtain for the fabric, and a 1970s crochet hippy top for the fabulous sleeves. It needs taking in to prevent anyone thinking I'm pregnant.
£3 and £1 respectively.
Hey, Big Spender.
The kids break up from school for the summer holidays tomorrow, and I confess I am looking forward to it immensely.
One last push though - I will be sticking labels on hundreds of books at school tomorrow. I rather like cutting and sticking, there is something oddly soothing about a repetitive menial task. And our Head Teacher is retiring, so I have to dash to the florist for a bouquet to add to the gifts we have already bought, ready for the presentation in assembly.
Don't worry - these are tasks I am undertaking happily and voluntarily!
Who knows what the summer will bring?
I am hoping for lie-ins, sunshine, sewing, clearing out the Cupboard of Doom, and some trips out and about.
Thank you for all your very encouraging and positive responses to my previous post. I do appreciate you comments very much!
Have a great weekend.
