I’ve been busy enjoying the sunshine and frankly burning the candle at both ends. I’m going to be taking it easy for the next week or two and getting back to some serious exercise.
On to outfits. What to wear when it’s suddenly 28oC and you’re going out at 530 on the dirty tube for the evening out that might finish late (& be chilly)? It was a dilemma and I should’ve gone with a dress as I was so hot!Old Zara jeans, last year’s H&M gold mules, last year’s Next cream balloon sleeve top, old Zara leopard studded belt, Topshop bag (sold out)
(On the subject of bags, I’ve just ordered another of these bags as I use mine everyday and it’s brilliant value for money). Another cream top and jeans combo. The top was from Mango last year and the quality is not good. The jeans are from ASOS 3 years ago. I am holding my Marimekko makeup bag and Chloe Mini Marcie. I eventually put my Ancient Greek Niki sandals on.
Here I am in some new sunnies – tributes to the Saint Laurent Loulous.Mine were from Urban Outfitters.
I’m just back from an epic 9 days in Mauritius. I was way too relaxed to take many outfit photos but will have a look and see if I have anything to share over the next few days.
In the meantime I have cheered myself up with some new shoes.I have my normal size 7. I didn’t realise that they aren’t leather until I bought them but they feel like they could be. They’re comfortable (they have insolia) and are a reasonable heel height. My partner hates them but I love them and that’s all that matters.
Finally I’ve found a leopard print dress!This one is from ASOS. I have a 12 in the Tall version as the “normal” one had sold out.
I’m in full holiday mode now but will be back soon.
I went real life shopping yesterday , quite a rare event. Even rarer was a grown-up only lunch with one of my great mates – she has 4 kids and I have 2 and we couldn’t remember the last time we’d seen each other without our broods (and got to finish a sentence!)
I picked up a huge Zara order, most of it is going back because their sizing is so random at the moment. I am keeping a second pair of the black culottes and these printed ones.
I had more success in & Other Stories though (surprise!) and wanted to share quickly as one of the things I bought is in the sale which ends soon.
This beautiful blouse has been in their sale for weeks and currently has 75% off.
I love stars as we know but I didn’t try this when it came out as I find collarless blouses quite unflattering. I am so pleased I finally tried it though. I’m going on holiday soon and I’m going to wear it with denim shorts and with cropped jeans when I’m back. I have a size 40.
I bought this blousy top too. I actually wanted to buy the silk shirt which reverses this colourway and is predominantly pink with a blue pattern but they didn’t have my size so I tried and loved this.It’s the kind of top you can throw on over jeans and feel good in. I’d even say it would be ok for less formal workplaces in summer.
I have to concentrate on my to do list (& exercise!) for the next few days before the kids break up for Easter but am going out for my sister’s birthday tonight and might share my outfit tomorrow if it’s a nice one. Otherwise I’ll be back in a few days.
