Oufit: Jeans and belt GAP, shoes Aldo, vest Whistles, jacket Oasis, bag Indica, Guernsey
I’ll admit it – I was a little lazy this weekend when it came to clothes as is evident from the jeans and espadrilles. However, the silk kimono style jacket is one that I have had for a few years and never worn, so it was nice to wear it on what was a lovely late summer day when a little assistance in the warmth department was required. Also, earlier in the summer I bought a ribbed vest top in the sale from Whistles. Its full price was £35 (for a vest, seriously?) but it was £10 in the sale which seemed a whole lot more reasonable and in fairness to it, now that I’ve worn it, it is far more substantial than a vest of the variety that I usually wear.
The sparkly bag can only mean one thing – time to go swimming!
The design on the jacket is really pretty with what almost looks like hand painted flowers with a shot of silver through it. It may just become my new BF when it comes to jackets.
Now someone had a confession to make this morning when I found my new espadrilles under our daughter’s desk. When questioned, she admitted that she likes to wear shoes which relate to the subject she’s studying – apparently it helps her to identify with it. This morning it was latin and the espadrilles made her feel like a Roman. We’ve also had my winter boots with tracksuit bottoms tucked in so that she feels like a soldier when studying World War 2 and my high Hobbs lace up shoes to represent what the women of WW2 would have worn in the 1940’s. There are some pretty big exams ahead this year so I’m intrigued to see what she will come up with. Obviously if a particular style is missing, it will be my duty to fill that gap….
