A few weeks ago I popped down to the post office for the second time in one day to fetch a parcel no one could seem to find. To say I was grumpy would be an understatement except that I was REALLY excited for this package to get here so I absolutely got over it. My package was found and with it there was a second, smaller parcel with my name written in unfamiliar handwriting… My name was even spelt right, which hardly ever happens with unsolicited parcels so I was surprised. Hmmmm. The plot thickens.

Thankfully this person had also been as diligent with their portion of the parcel addressing type section thing and there was the name of the mystery sender. A friend who’s not so far away any more. she drove through my town recently enough and wondered if I lived nearby. ARGH. Someone who I’ve never really had a decent amount of time in the same place with but who I feel like is my friend. A real friend. She’s an Internet celeb, so try not to be jealous, I bet she’d be your friend too if you asked. She’s just lovely like that. Any ideas who? I’ll tell you later and be a name dropping weirdo, promise. But first let’s talk about this adorable navy dress that was IN the parcel.

This dress could have been made for me and my tan boots and belt. It was like it was lined up for us from the start. the colour, I love. The pattern. The cut and the style. All great for me. PLUS it’s a light cotton sort of material and I plan on wearing it all year round. When I finally, FINALLY put my boots away {trust me, it was even too hot when I took these photos but I was DETERMINED} I have some cute eBay tan strappy heels that will take their place. Win. Suffice to say I am hugely grateful for the gift and it’s about as perfect as it can be. Don’t you think?

It’s a new firm favourite. Thank you Chantelle.
