We'll Never Be Royals

Biba Maxi Dress c/o House of Fraser

Do you ever have one of those days when you're wearing an anorak, climbing a mountain in the pouring rain without a sign of make up, then the next day you're twirling around in a long, royal blue, silky dress wearing bright red lipstick?

It wasn't a typical weekend for me (I kind of wish it was...) but me and The Man headed to the Lake District to climb mountains and generally pretend to be Bear Grylls (or Clare Grylls as I now prefer to be called), it's something I've never, ever done before but actually quite enjoyed! Apart from the weather and questionable attire required...

But the next day I counter-acted it by trying on my new Biba maxi dress and slicking on some red lipstick in the last hours of the evening. A little bit more me!

Despite my better judgement, I'm actually looking forward to our next hike... Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck on your next hike! Lake District is absolutely beautiful when the weather is great, but when it's boring, it's a horrible place to be...and makes an hikes seem x10 longer! That dress suits you so well, the colour is so gorgeous! :) x
