Blush & Navy

Another Irish summer day....another 'transitional' outfit and as we had a BBQ to go to today, there was no escape from the weather. However, the rain stayed off for the afternoon and we all had a great day, especially the 11 children ranging in age from 2-10 (eek!) So what to wear to a Northern Ireland summer barbecue?
Love this blush coloured top (which I last wore here). It's from the H&M sale - a total bargain at £3! The colour and shape is so flattering and easy to wear and it's a perfect match for my Wallis scarf and H&M lattice pumps.
You can just about see my pink Gelish nails peeking through, (courtesy of Alicia in Bliss Nails, Belfast). You'll see them closer in another post this week - I fully intend to get them out properly and risk wet toes as I adore the colour so much. 
I also wore my Kaleidoscope navy mac (last seen here). It has been a great staple this summer. It's light enough for this time of year but perfect for a day like today when a shower was always a risk.
Jeans are from H&M and my white vest top (just seen) is from Primark. Oh and I've tied my scarf the School Gate Style way!
Hope you got some sun this weekend. We had a great day on Saturday but I've saved those photos for a blog post later this week. The reason why will become clear when I post them....couple of great blogs in the pipeline! Have a super week xx
