It doesn't happen very often so when it does, I like to get me a bit of sparkle on. This time (a few weeks ago) it was a meal out near Queens University and on our post-meal walk, I got himself to take a few photos outside Friar's Bush Graveyard - ok a bit morbid but it's a historic site now and I love the gate and the cobbled pathway outside.
I went for muted shades and a few items that had been neglected up to now on the blog. The time since I took these photos is given away in that I actually sold the jacket in my blog sale a few weeks ago (so behind with blog posts right now!). While I loved it, seeing it in these photos reminded me that it's too petite a fit for me - I need a slightly longer line in my jackets so it had to go to a new home.
|Jacket - Fenn Wright Manson (similar)|
Top - Random boutique brand (similar)
Shoes - Room 31 (similar)
Jeans - French Connection
Bag - Fiorelli
(all past season)
The top is an oldie that (I am embarrassed to say) still had its tags on. It's a vest shape with sequins on the front and back. I got it a few years ago in a boutique and I'm not sure why I've never worn it or indeed, given it away as I usually do with anything I don't wear. I always loved the colour and the shape.
The shoes are a sale purchase from Room 31 last year. They were hugely reduced and I figured everyone should have a pair of patent nude shoes in their wardrobe so I bought them. I can see me wearing again and again now I've broken them in.
The jeans are French Connection and the handbag used to belong to Rosanna over at silverbrogues blog - I bought it from her at the Style Fair last month!
I haven't forgotten the hen photos - I promise they will feature soon...just editing out the ones that I'm not allowed share :)
Have a great weekend! I'm off now to sort out uniforms...fingers crossed they all fit!
