Floral Floaty Jacket & Tan Cross Body

Today was a debut for this little floaty jacket/top which was originally from Primark but I picked it up in the charity shop recently with the tags still attached. Loving the colours - it's perfect with blue jeans and tan accessories.
Floral Jacket - Primark (similar here & here)
Jeans - Gap Boyfriend
Sandals - Boden
White Vests - M&S and Primark basics
Necklace - Cos (sold out)
Tan Cross Body - Fat Face
Another lovely day in Belfast so the toes were out again. This time in my Boden strappy sandals that I've worn so much since I got them at my party in May. They are a great blue/purple colour and seem to match so much in my wardrobe. They're also very comfortable - perfect for wide feet.
The jeans are my Gap Boyfriend - as opposed to my Gap Boyfit. These boyfriend ones are a slimmer fit so work better with the loose top though the ones I link to above are not the exact ones I have. They seem to change the style each year and mine are past season.
Underneath, I'm wearing two white vest tops - I find it more flattering to layer them - it helps with the mum tum. As does the control vest underneath :)
The necklace is unfortunately, not one of mine. It's from Cos - I got it on my last trip to London in February and it's sold out now. 
And I'm finally featuring this Fat Face cross body bag which I got last summer and I've used it lots but just haven't taken photos of it ever. It's a super bag for a busy day like today as it's light and has a lovely soft woven strap that doesn't dig into your neck. It's leather too and comes in at just £45 - the one I linked to above is a slightly different version for SS13.
Ok - off now to get prepped and preened for Britmums Live so this is my last post until Sunday, when I'll share with you what I wore both days and how I got on at the awards on Friday evening and on the style panel on Saturday afternoon. Wish me luck!

Have a great weekend and if you're coming to Britmums, see you there xx
