8 years ago today...

I met this gorgeous boy for the first time..
It's my football obsessed son! Turned my life upside-down back in 2004 and he's grown into an amazing young man. Makes me proud every day. 
We had a lovely day today on his actual birthday. Yesterday we had the party day and it was just a bit hectic so it was lovely to have a quieter day today at the park with his sisters and the kids' honorary Aunty, my best friend, Claire
We're at that difficult time of the's lovely and sunny out and quite warm in the sunshine. But it's not yet summertime officially, so can you ditch the woolies yet?
I went for a mixture today, skinny navy jeans with maroon colour pumps from Clarks and my Primark lacy t-shirt layered over a vest. I've added a Topshop boyfriend cardigan over my shoulders...there was still a nip in the air out in the park.
Cardigan - Topshop (old), Lace Top - still available in Primark
White Vest - H&M

I love greys and stone colours - not very exciting I know, but if you're buying less expensive clothes, neutral colours tend to look like they cost a bit more.
Still debating whether to dig out the white trousers yet...what do you think? 
Hope you've had a lovely sunny day wherever you are. See you tomorrow. I'm off for some cuddles with my gorgeous birthday boy :)


  1. Fab....I love a bit of sludge myself,agree about it looking more expensive......if you ever see that cardi in Top Shop again let me know.where are your ballerinas from?

    1. Thanks! That cardigan is fab - have worn is so much since I got it a couple of years ago. Has bobbled a lot though... so frustrating. The ballerinas are from Clarks Outlet - my wide feet have to go there for ballerinas. Have linked to some on eBay but hard to find. Let me know if you ever see any. It's a brilliant colour - goes with everything.
