Botanic Gardens and Honey Bees

Dress: She Inside | Shoes: New Look | Ring: Accessorise | (I can't remember where the bracelet is from sorry)
I've had this dress since May and I've not worn it before now... that is bad! It is very bold though and I've struggled to find the right occasion to wear it. It is quite a bold, bright, yellow dress which isn't normally my style but I just loved the bees. As you might know my dad is a bee keeper so I feel like it is in my family. I'm not quite sure what scuba material is but this comes pretty close and keeps it shape well. Its only fault is how short it is... I barely get away with it. 

On Friday I went down to Edinburgh with my mum and dad- on the way we went to get my Grandma so we could take her out for lunch. We went to the restaurant at the John Hope gateway at the Edinburgh Botanic... It is our favourite place to go. The windows were open and the sun was shining. I did feel out of place in this summery dress. We then went for a wander in stockbridge and did some charity shop shopping. On our way home we went to one of my other places- IKEA!! Lots of homeware items for my student flat were purchased.

What do you think of this dress? Go and check out She Inside - they have LOADS of lovely things. 

Also a huge thank you to those I chatted to during #fbloggers chat on Thursday who encouraged me to wear the dress.
