Holiday Outfit Post # 2: The Mint Julep dress

This is the next post to feature one of my holiday dresses and I am not uploading these in chronological order, as this was the last dress I wore on holiday.

I have had this dress for a while and it is one of my favourite colours!  I just love all those gelato shades but as there is only a short window of time in which I can wear these summery colours, I don't tend to buy many dresses in shades of mint/ peach/ lemon.  The colour doesn't look quite as mint in these photos but I can assure you it is good enough to make a cocktail with! 

It is also a bit shorter than most of my other 50s dresses (my guy was even surprised that he could see my knees!) and although I usually prefer my dresses to be below the knee, sometimes wearing something a bit different is good.

These photos were taken at the bottom of the Tour Barberousse in Gruissan.  The hat was pretty much redundant on this holiday as it was just too windy to wear it and I probably shouldn't have brought it with me in retrospect (still, it looks nice in these photos!)
