More orange on the rocks....

Totally wiped after a long day at the corporate event. It was a productive time with a great team of people but once again, I didn't get any blog photos - sorry! My excuse this time is that I couldn't hang around after the event finished to get the photos done as I had an interview to do on BBC Radio London...I think that's a pretty good reason?! 
So instead, I'm sharing an outfit from last week. This is what I wore on the drive up to the coast and the photos were taken on the rocks at Portstewart promenade as the sun was going down on our first evening. The kids could spend hours here scrambling over the rocks and hoking in rockpools with sticks. My young man was kind enough to take my photos before he did some crabbing..
Wearing a Vero Moda short sleeved sheer jersey cardigan from Room 31 which I wore lots last week. It's lovely and light but has the all-important bum coverage for wearing over skinnies! My white vest is from Primark, scarf from this previous post and jeans from H&M.
Loved that I got to wear these suede River Island sandals that I bought a couple of summers ago but have hardly worn due to rubbish weather:
PS the Room 31 sale has started. Some great bargains to be had with up to 80% off. If you get a minute, do pop over for a look. I'm off for a peek myself now!

    The orange is lovely but the scarf is HUGE and looks a bit OTT!!

  16. Avril,

    did you have a post on how to tie the scarf
    I thought I read one on your blog
    but can't find it....

    maybe I'm losing my marbles!

    If you did have one can you point me in the right direction
    as I bought a scarf something similar today and would like to
    tie it properly!
