Strange times

What strange times we are living through! Trust that I am doing my bit in real life, though I keep my politics off our blog. 

And we still wear clothes, don’t we. Bored yet? Don’t let it be said I only wear things once! Old Zara jeans, Topshop shirt, Topshop mules, old Zara studded belt, old See by Chloe bag. You can see from my face how bored I am with shirts and jeans. Summer, where ARE YOU? !?!We know I don’t really do smart. I had a meeting this morning and made an effort with this Warehouse soft blue shirt, old Zara jeans, white Office Dappers, old Zara belt. 

I wanted to share this cami top from M&S. I’ve taken my head off in the photo as is my prerogative :-) I hope I looked better in it in real life, despite my partner asking why I was wearing my nightwear. It’s very pretty. 

This evening we are off to a protest to make our European voices heard then it’s all about this!C’mon Italia! 

In, Out, Shake It All About

We have a bonus polling day off. We planned to make the most of it and go up town to the museums that are usually rammed at the weekends. The weather scuppered those plans, the crazy storm in London last night means trains cancelled, tube delays. 

Swimming it is then! Joy (said no parent ever)

I went to vote first of course. 

What are we supposed to wear in this weather?! Zara jeans, Office Dapper loafers, Topshop shirt (sold out but cold shoulder version here). I could do with a rain coat but my sisters have taken mine to Glasto!

I went out for dinner with friends yesterday evening. 

Aren’t clothes funny ole things? I wanted to wear my Zara gold skirt (now £9.99), Topshop black cami, Hush black jacket and black Topshop Kingfishers from last year. But the shoes didn’t work (no photos, I was in the usual tearing hurry) and I couldn’t find any that did. Midi skirt problems. What shoes?

So I wore my going out uniform. Again. Zara stepped hem jeans, Topshop leopard mules, Jack Will Star shirt. 

I added big gold hoops from & Other Stories (sold out but silver here) I last wore hoops twenty years or more ago!I bought a few “gold” necklaces from Topshop and Accessorize earlier in the year and have worn them lots. So I’m looking for a real gold necklace that won’t tarnish or break the bank. Any suggestions? 

Back soon. 

Grey skies, sunny skies

I am en route to a talk Sali Hughes and Hadley Freeman are giving this evening. I love them both so am quite excited. I am wearing my go to outfit of (unironed, oops) Zara jeans (now in their sale), old Jack Wills star shirt, Topshop loafers, Hush jacket and See by Chloe black bag. 

Hope you all had a nice Father’s Day. We went to a jazz picnic and enjoyed a few hours of sunshine before more rain today (and now lovely sunshine?!)Me in the Warehouse sundress (my favourite buy for ages!) and RayBans with a glass of prosecco.

Saturday was one of those lost days, we seemed to have spent most of it in traffic! Hush grey sweatshirt jacket, old Zara jeans, ASOS tshirt, Office Dapper loafers, Mango white leather fringed bag (now in their sale)

Today my smallest did her first full day at nursery. I was a bit lost! I went boxing and then spent a very long time sorting out sandals!How many pairs of sandals does a woman need when it’s rained most of the month?! 

Back soon! 


Here it is, my attempt at looking fancy!& Other Stories green broderie anglaise dress, Marks & Spencer snakeprint platforms, eBay hat, metallic Warehouse leather clutch

I bought the dress last year and gave it to my sister as it was tight on my tummy. She’s not worn it so it is still brand new and now looser. It’s strangely reappeared in their current sale!There’s still time to get the M&S beauty box of you spend over £40. I’m impressed with the shoes and the box (contents below)Back soon.
