Weekend Adventures

Stopping to smell the flowers

We spent last weekend in West Sussex with my father, having an early celebration of his 60th birthday… His birthday isn’t until August, so it is very early but we won’t be able to be together on the actual date. My sister was over from Greece for the occasion too.

My father rented a cottage for us all to stay in for the weekend. It was the cutest little place with an adorable little kitty that lived in the gardens. It was a great, fun family weekend. Which mainly involved eating in the local pub and sitting around chatting.

On the Sunday once the rain stopped we headed for a wander round a local garden. It was full of beautiful flowers, secret pathways, cute dogs and so many bubble bees! It was such a good weekend hanging out with my loved ones. The weekend ended with my sister treating me to a new Mac laptop, I know, I’m lucky aye! Goes without saying, my sister is better than yours ๐Ÿ˜‰
I no longer need to borrow Dave’s laptop and instead have my own rose gold beaut!

Visit To Dreamland

Back in April we spent Easter weekend down in Kent, you can see more from this weekend trip here, here and here. We always try make a trip to Dreamland while down at Dave’s parents. It was great to visit a year on from our wedding there, it truly is one of my favourite places. If you are ever down in Margate make sure you take a visit.

Wearing my summer uniform of midi dress, leather jacket and trainers. This is my fail safe uniform and this dress is perfect for those days when I’m stuck for what to wear I grab this dress, it’s effortless and easy to wear. This weekend we were lucky enough to have a sunshine. It made for wandering around Dreamland the ideal Saturday afternoon activity.

Summer In The City

London Sunshine

There is nothing better than London in the sunshine, on a sunny weekend we headed for our usual coffee date. Getting up early on Sunday and taking our usual stroll through the common and into Balham, past all these beautiful houses. It’s one of my favourite back drops for a couple of snaps. I often dream about one day owning a house like this, for now that dream is a long way away!

Let’s talk about this outfit – I’m wearing my new denim dress. As we all know I love a midi and this denim chambray one is the perfect addition to my wardrobe. It’s the perfect summer dress, not too thick and as it’s plain it is perfect to wear with printed accessories.

My obsession with hair accessories continues and any chance to wear this leopard beauty I jump at the chance. It goes perfectly with this denim dress, expect to see this pairing throughout the summer.

What I’m wearing –

Easy Like Sunday

Wind Swept

I’ve had a weekend where we haven’t got up to much. Having to work on Sunday ruined our usual routine of walking to our favourite coffee shop and the weather on Saturday called for a lazy day on the sofa. It’s actually been nice and chilled, well except for working on a Sunday (all in all it wasn’t a bad day). I definitely over estimated the sunshine thinking it was super warm but it wasn’t. In fact it was bloody freezing! I thought my hoodie and leather jacket would keep the chill at bay but I might need to dust off my winter coat tomorrow.

This skirt is another of my new monochrome recent buys, getting it on my staff discount made it a rather good bargain. I think I’ll get plenty of wear out of it over the summer months. It’ll work perfectly with my slogan tees like this Topshop one, not that you can see the slogan much as my hair is covering it, doh! The skirt will work equally well with a plain black tee too.

I’m pleased with how my summer wardrobe is shaping up, just need the weather to get on board so I can ditch the layers. I’ve also got my eye on a couple of cute bags, sandals and a dress or two for my holiday at the end of April. I’ll keep you posted on what I end up buying for it.

What I’m wearing –
T-shirt & Bag – Topshop
