Ice cream the First

I've got one more outfit from my work trip to share but instead here is what I wore on Tuesday.













I took these photos after work. Afterwards my other half and I walked over to the corner shop. They just started stocking ice lollies again that day so I had the first mini milky of the season. It's my absolute favourite frozen treat and during the summer months it is a regular indulgence (regular meaning once or twice a day) :D

Other than the milky I've been keeping to my greens this week. Calorie controlled, no dough, no sweets week. It all started with a big box of chocolates decimated in one sitting some weeks ago (oh, who am I kidding, a couple of months back). Since then I've been on a refined sugar trip I've been finding it hard to snap out of. I am quite anal about my weight ;) If my husband had a penny for ever time he hears the words "today I am having a diet day" out of my mouth we'd be living a life of leisure (well, of course he'd share his wealth).

It's Thursday but also Friday! Can't wait for the long weekend to begin :)

bracelet: Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair

    I love the combination of the dress, hat and cardigan--very English spring!

    I've been trying to get off my own sugar kick (or pastry kick, more like) for weeks, but I keep arriving somewhere else and having to eat all my favourite pastries to make sure they're still as good as I remember. Pfff.

  13. It's a misspelled mini milk ice lolly aimed at little kids. Chocolate, strawberry or vanilla flavour :)

  17. What a lovely bracelet! I also love the neutral tones of the outfit livened up with the pop of that salmon scarf. Sweet setting as well, I want a popsicle or ice cream cone now. :(

  18. When I look at your photos I sigh loudly, in a good way, as though I've been holding my breath but didn't realize it until your pleasant little pictures came in to view. And I remember to breathe. These images are the stuff of sonnets, especially that full-length one of you amidst the flower bushes. Absolutely lovely. I love the delicacy of this outfit, the light colors and feminine silhouette. The hat is a perfect addition.

    You're awesome.

  25. Such lovely photos here today! I love the dandelion one...I hope you've eaten by now! The only time I have "diet days" is when I don't get to take a lunch break at work...

    I contemplated treating myself to the first ice cream cone of the season today, but didn't. Not sure why! Tomorrow, perhaps! Anyway, I love how your outfit of creamy whites and sweet pinks resembles ice cream. Pretty :)

  27. That little straw boater is so pretty on you. And perfect for spring! Having a healthy week sounds like a great idea. I love eating my greens! I have a summer job which involves paddling about in a tiny bikini so I need to get in shape...it's yoga time!
