This was my outfit for a picnic by the lake. Now, when I picture a picnic by the lake, I see grass, a blanket, and dipping your toes in whilst munching on a strawberry or two. I forgot that isn’t the case when you’re in the middle of the desert! Surrounded by mountains, we picnicked at Lake Mead, a rather rocky affair, and not exactly the kind of water you’d want to go for a dip in, but a lovely time all the same.
We watched the fish from the marina and tried not to get blown in – my poor hair wasn’t having the best of times! Judging by these pictures, the sun has set to work lightening it. The same can’t be said for my back, which was left with a nice pink heart at the end of the day thanks to my Alexandra Grecco dress.
I bought this seafoam delight months ago now, knowing that I’d take it away on holiday with me to eat ice cream in. I’ll admit, it’s a bit of an awkward fit on me (I think I bought a size too big..more room for ice cream, eh?!), but who can resist a heart cut-out? Not I! Especially when it gives you cute sunburn ; ) And another sweet looking tan I acquired was thanks to my scallop shaped shoes. I wasn’t sure what to think of them when they turned up in my order from YesStyle, Miguel voted a big no (“they are old lady shoes”) but he clearly doesn’t understand the popularity of the flatform, as I received more than a couple of compliments on them whilst strolling across the harbour.
I hope I’m managing to show you a side of Las Vegas that isn’t as obvious as casinos and flashing lights. But the strip is exactly where I’m heading this afternoon, so expect a big ol’ dollop of that in a post coming soon! x
