You may think from this photo that I’m lacking in inspiration in what to wear, which isn’t the case at all. I have lots of ideas of things that I want to show you but yesterday it was just soooooo cold that I had to resort to the age old formula of jeans, boots, a jacket and a scarf. I even put the heating on when I returned from town mid-morning but when Mr SG came back at lunchtime to work from home for the afternoon I was busted and off it went. Mind you, things are looking up for Thursday and Friday so ladies, slap that fake tan on.
In the meantime here are a couple of things that I spied whilst out and about yesterday which will be great for when the sun finally arrives…
Topshop Slides (£40) – you can forget your Birkenstocks, furry or otherwise, and your lace up ballet pumps, these are where it’s at right now. I had my first pair of these from my local Freeman Hardy and Willis (showing my age or what?!) and they were a size 13. They were a denim print and I loved them. I have a pink pair of Scholl ones in my wardrobe which I think may well make a re-appearance sometime soon.
You can’t beat a good beach dress and this one from Topshop (£35) caught my eye as I passed it yesterday. There was a lovely Michael Kors one in the window of the MK shop but I couldn’t bring myself to spend much on something that was only going to end up with sun-tan cream, ice-cream and all manner of splodgy stuff all over it.
This Accessorize beaded chevron clutch bag (£25) on the other hand? Well let’s just say it might be wrapped up in tissue paper in a wardrobe not too far from here….
And talking about things in cupboards. I found this in our kitchen cupboard the other day. I should be embarrassed but I’m not – well, only for the fact that we even owned a tin of evaporated milk in the first place. Why would you do that? Condensed milk yes, I get that. That’s what’s needed for chocolate caramel shortbread but evaporated milk? I have no idea. However thinking about it I was pregnant at the time. Maybe that had something to do with it.
So what do you have lurking at the back of your cupboards – anything of the evaporated milk/scholl shoe variety, or perhaps a new little number for a sunny day? Go on, share them with me!
