I carried a watermelon?

Ah who else watched Dirty Dancing on TV the other day? That film makes me feel so nostalgic and takes me back to days of when me and my sisters would sit about on the weekend and watch it. Dirty Dancing, Grease, Weekend at Bernies 2 and Clueless were the movies of my childhood. I can quote it all day long "Spaghetti arms!" and the soundtrack is brilliant. It never gets old and the end scene still gives me butterflies till this very day.

It would seem the fashion world has gone completely bananas- wait! Watermelons!- (Nope doesn't have the same ring to it)....for all things watermelon. I simply adore it as a print and having darker hair it definitely seems to go extremely well with the colours. This little beaut I found on Ebay? Which I couldn't quite believe as whenever you type in 'watermelon dress' into the search bar it usually results in a bunch of dresses with a 'watermelon' colour which is incredibly frustrating. Then behold I found my dream dress from a lady who hand makes a load of dresses. This dress was originally larger on top and she very kindly altered it for me.

Dress- Ebay - Seller 'Swing me baby' | Shoes- Primark | Cardigan- Charity Shop

These photos were taken after I finished work last week and as outside was still bright and lovely me and Jonathan seized the moment and found a lovely little spot in Kentish Town. The length of the dress couldn't be more perfect as I do tend to prefer my dresses for work on the more longer side. Teamed with Gill's (Jon's mum) cardigan that she found in a charity shop the other week completed the look. Some days it's nice to give the feet a rest so I opted for flats this day. I've got my eye on even more watermelon stuff at the moment, how much is too much?

Get Watermelon Inspired!
