Spring is in the air

Westfield again today. Important gift buying mission.

I wore Zara skinny jeans, Mint Velvet caramel leather jacket, old cream snake print and orange scarf, Zara studded zebra trainers and All Saints cream Nep top, Marc by Marc Jacobs grey bag. I wouldn’t have thought to wear this jacket just yet, I usually wait for warmer spring. However it fell off a hanger and I threw on in a chair until I had to time to find space for it again. On the chair was the scarf (my eldest always sleeps with one of my scarves) It made me think spring is on the way, which made me smile, hence it’s early outing.

This evening I am going out to the pub for an hour once the babies are in bed. I’m wearing Zara skinnies still with a H&M flamingo sweatshirt, grey Next quilted biker jacket, Topshop Vectra studded slippers and H&M neon star scarf. The sweatshirt is in store now but size up – it’s tight!

Today I Am Happy That..

..I went to meet my friend Sarah WornOut. She has a personal blog about happy things. It makes me smile.

We met in Grind in Westfield. I cannot resist their berry scones. Who cares that I’m going to be in a bikini in a few weeks time when food tastes this good.

I wore black Nudies, Zara animal studded trainers, grey Uniqlo heattech, Vero Moda draped grey shirt, black Zara leather jacket, Mango faux fur waistcoat (on the floor!) Marc by Marc Jacobs dragon scarf, Marc by Marc Jacobs grey bag (on the stool)

I struggled with a top today. I need some more draping in my wardrobe I think. I had a look at All Saints but nothing tempted me. Please do let me know if you’ve seen a nice grey or black draped top, shirt even jumper anywhere.

We did some light shopping and both bought some bejewelled Primark boyfriend jeans, I bought this beautiful no brainer black tshirt with a gold brocade tiger design and something about this pleated coral skirt was calling to me so it came home too.

H&M had the nicest starry denim shirt in but the sizing was tiny. I’d need a 16 or 18 which they didn’t have.

I bought a few bits for La Bambina in the Mothercare sale. She already has these Little Bird (Jules Oliver for Mothercare) trousers so I bought a bigger size with 50% off. Lovely colour and they wash well. This lightening print in the Baby K range is great. This is actually a babygrow and a steal for £8.

Lastly I bought this neon star scarf from H&M. A fitting ending to a lovely day with my friend Sarah.

All Saints preserve us

I had a lovely comment on our blog from a lady saying that she had been wanting a pair of Kurt Geiger Willow ankle boots after seeing mine, and had found a pair on eBay.  Success!  And it reminded me that I saw a friend wearing these black leather Hessian ankle boots from All Saints (£165) and was taken with how beautiful they are.  Very elegant style with high quality leather.  My friend has very sensitive tootsies, so these must also be comfortable, if she bought them.  The Hessian boots also come in grey suede, but I don’t think they are nearly as nice.

ll Saints Hessian grey suede ankle boots – not as nice, are they?
But look at this gorgeous, heavily embellished  Graffiti grey sequin skirt (£195)!  Swoon….

And as for me and what I have been wearing, here’s a snap from the other day.  Outfit is cream Tie Rack wool pashmina, TopShop leopard print coat, Primark crystal button cashmere cardi (my inner Nanna loves a cardi), Zara super skinny jeans.  And, and, and, the Willow ankle boots of course.  Mmm, I need more leather boots.  Coloured leather boots.  At a reasonable price.  And all I can find is suede!

After a particularly trying week, I am off to Century 21 (yet again!), so will let you know how I get on…

 

WornOut Girl Band

Gina and I are both channelling our inner All Saints and wearing the same trousers today.

Like her, I’m not sure they’re right. I wanted them as a replacement for my maternity ones and stalked the Zara website until they came back into stock. I ordered a 12 & 14 and kept the 14. In hindsight I think that’s a mistake as they’ve expanded in the hour I’ve been wearing them. They’ve been christened with my baby’s vomit now too. Since baggy and smelly isn’t the look I was going for, I am going to get changed.

I was wearing them with a Gap denim shirt, old snake print scarf and black sequin Toms.

It’s been a tough morning. Up at 5:30 dealing with screams of “I’m not going to school” I don’t recommend it as a good way to start the day. Thank God it’s Friday!
