Having watched everyone go off on holiday, it’s finally my turn! A quick few things to share though. I bought this fringed suede bag in the black. It comes in a lovely pale grey and this tan too. Belinda has just bought a stunning wine coloured one from Zara. This Zara dress reminds me of my mum’s dresses when I was little, happy clothes. The print on this dress is just beautiful. I will wear it now with Topshop Figs and will wear it in autumn with high boots and a furry gilet, maybe even with a black roll neck underneath. I don’t need any more coats but I have been after a camel one for years. I didn’t want to spend a fortune though until I know I will wear it, so this from Zara looked perfect. It wasn’t sadly, a shade too light and it felt like cardboard on, back it went.
Right, I’m off! Follow me on Instagram if you like, I am sure I’ll post some holiday pics. You have to request to follow me, if you’ve got a “strange” IG name, message me on this page first and tell me so I know it’s you and won’t say no.
I spent most of my birthday eating. We went out for breakfast then dinner with my dad and half my gang of sisters before getting the river boat home For breakfast I wore two of my best buys of S/S, Mango dress and Topshop Kingfisher espadrilles.
For dinner I wanted to wear this – Topshop fringe skirt, Uniqlo black silk shirt – but the torrential rain put me off. In the end I wore the & Other Stories mountain print dress with Topshop Kingfisher espadrilles again. I thought I’d wear the Topshop Nomads but I have decided they’re an expensive mistake. I’m yet to wear them, every time I try them the baggy foot strap annoys me. To eBay they go I think.
The count down to the big 4-0 begins!
It’s my birthday later this week and I kicked off the celebrations going for champagne and cheese with a friend last night. I was rushing to get out as usual. Old Zara jeans, Mango cream shirt, Topshop lace up espadrilles, my mum’s green Zara jacket, Next grey suede fringed bag (more because it has my stuff in and I was in a rush than it going with my outfit!)
Champagne and cheese, my kind of Monday night!
The sky has clouded over since the bright sunshine this morning but it’s still lovely and warm in London. We spent the morning making a tiramisu for a barbecue with my dad this afternoon. It doesn’t usually take long but half the sponge biscuits and then a fair chunk of chocolate “went missing” and we had to go to the supermarket to replenish stocks. Little monkeys!
I planned to wear denim shorts for a visit to my nan then BBQ but they’ve gone missing. Instead I am wearing my Topshop cold shoulder dress, and London Rebel sandals.
Have a good Sunday.
I’m just home from the hairdressers and theatre with my big girl and am off to blow up the paddling pool and catch a few rays in our garden. Topshop denim dress (sold out but kind of similar here and here), Topshop espadrilles, Next suede fringed bag, ASOS sunnies (sold out but similar shape here), Nars Red Square lip crayon.
Have a happy, sunny Saturday.
