You know me – I love a good brogue, and a navy top, and a pair of jeans and oh look, here they are all together!
I haven’t worn this navy Cos top for a while but it has a little Peter Pan collar on it which is really cute.
Yesterday our son and I were hitting the books in preparation for his 11 plus exam in a couple of weeks. I though it only fair that I sat with him whilst he was doing the questions and I wanted to feel a bit “put together”. For some reason – brogues do that for me. When I wear them I mean business!
I think he learnt a lot – his vocabulary has certainly been broadened – mainly as a result of choice words and phrases on my part.
The maths, english and verbal reasoning I get – that all makes sense and is useful in every day life. The non-verbal reasoning – what a total and utter waste of time. I would rather clean the windows than work out whether a whole load of shapes have been roated through 45 or 90 degrees in a clockwise or anti-clockwise direction whilst shaded in a different way from the shapes next to them. We did have some laughs though!
This photo was taken on a trip to the newsagents as part of one of our “breaks”. Having sat on a bench in the sun for a few minutes, I was encouraged by our son to return to the books – and I somewhat reluctantly followed. I love a bit of reverse psychology!
Here are a closer shot of the bag and cuff that I wore – the bag is the Orla Kiely (Bicester) one that I had from my husband for my birthday and the cuff is Hobbs NW3.
I can feel a whole brogue post coming on but thought that I had better give the shoes a rest for a while as I have been talking about them quite a lot recently!
Outfit: Gap high rise skinny jeans, Cos top, Dune cream brogues, bag and cuff as listed.
