Another reason for not wearing it was because I really wanted to get a pair of flat tan sandals to wear with it and I struck gold during a quick duck into Topshop yesterday. While I loved the Fig sandals that so many bloggers have been rocking, I wanted to get something a bit different and ideally less expensive so these ones for £26 were ticking lots of boxes!
Melcome Chambray Dress - Joules
HILT Flat Sandals - TopShop
I kept accessories simple with a tan leather Hermes necklace and matching bracelet that a friend bought me about 11 years ago...it's a set that comes out every now and again and reminds me of a lovely lady who befriended me when I was struggling to cope with the demands of being a new mum, alone at home all day with an unsettled, colicky little boy. I also wore a tan leather infinity bracelet from Jo's Arm Candy, a Jolie Daisy bracelet (just seen) and my Michael Kors watch - one year on, I still love it and think about New York every time I look at it!
Once things cooled down this evening, I switched into my Hush Avignon trousers with a jersey cardigan and scarf.
Trousers - Hush
Jersey Lounge Cardigan - House of Fraser (old but similar here)
Blush Vest - M&S
Scarf - old
Sandals - Topshop (as before)
Oh and I can't go without sharing my new tan. I spotted this offer in my local Medicare chemist (all three for £9.95)
I hope you've had a good week and you're looking forward to the weekend. End of term getting scarily close here in NI so just a shout out for anyone looking teachers' presents from the shop. Let me know in the note when you buy that it's a gift and I'll post with extra tissue and stickers so you can check the items before wrapping yourself. I also have gift vouchers for any amount, valid for 12 months.
