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 😉
I no longer need to borrow Dave’s laptop and instead have my own rose gold beaut!

Dreaming

I can’t tell you how much I am in love with this dress. I stalked it online for what felt like a life time, but with its hefty price tag of £120 it wasn’t going to happen. The fashion Gods were truly looking out for me, as not only did it get reduced firstly to £70 , it was then down to £50. I managed to bag the dress of my dreams through my work discount, with an added boost…. it had a further 10% off for staff over the weekend. So I picked it up – I lucked out indeed!!

I was after a new dress to wear at a friends wedding and this is what I wore. The blue flowers within the dress matched perfectly with this bag from BHS – I love this bag, but it doesn’t get used often. The colour is hard to pair with things, and as i’m not a clasher, it sadly sits alone, waiting to be used. As my fedora hat is generally glued to my head, that was a natural choice, I also added these sandals to complete the look, as I’ve been itching to wear them – summer is definitely on its way!!

Hola Salou…

My first outfit post from sunny Salou! Dave and I were treated to a weeks holiday with his family as our Christmas present – what a brilliant present! The weeks leading up to our holiday, we were all so excited and did lots of holiday shopping. One of my new purchases were these cute little boot style sandals from Topshop. They are so comfy and I’m heading back to buy them in the tan colour too! This dress is an oldie but a firm favorite and I’m sporting a new red and silver ring Dave treated me to from a Salou store along the sea front and two stacked rings brought way back when… I’m also sporting my bright green wrist band from our hotel – I tried to hide it the best I could.
