This outfit would look so much better with heels, but I could just not do it......

I bought this little tunic in a sale a few weeks after Orla was born and I have loved it every time that I have worn it. It is very comfy, easy to wash, quick to dry, needs no ironing or accessorising and most of all I always feel pulled together when I have it on. I do love pieces like this!

My work day is almost over and then it is home to get packed for our trip to Florida. I am so looking forward to a week of sunshine and shopping. I am going to make an effort to take some outfit posts while we are away, but I can not promise anything!

Today's outfit is:

Tunic - New Look
Slip dress - Vila
Leggings - Primark
Necklace - Primark
Shoes - Primark

I thought I would look out my comfy, bright maxi dress to cheer me up. I wish I had not bothered! I hate the way that this dress looks in pictures.

My mum bought me this dress for the weeks right after Orla was born and it was perfect and I felt that it was so flattering on! Not the case today - roll on 5pm when I can go home and take this off!

Today's outfit is:

Yellow maxi dress - New York & Co
Cami - Primark
cardigan - Vila
Sandals - Primark
Necklace - Primark

Sunday 08.08.10.


We had a lovely day, yesterday, at a friends babies christening. The sun shone, the champagne flowed and baby Orla was a little star.

Anyway, I remembered to ask N to snap a picture of me when we got home. It is not the best picture (as it was 10 hours after we left the house and lots of champagne had been consumed). But I really loved my outfit so I wanted to post!

Sunday's Outfit was:

Skirt - River Island
Vest top - Tesco
Linen Blazer - River Island (borrowed from sister)
Necklace - Forever 21
Shoes - were the Nine West ones from Saturday, not flip flops!

Saturday again - is it just me or is anyone scared that it is August already!! Where has this year gone??

Last night I decided that time has come for me to start wearing heels again! What with the pregnancy swelling at the start of the year and my love of flip flops, of late, it has been a while and all of my lovely shoes are feeling neglected! (They told me so).

So, heels it is today and what better way to wear them than with one of my all time favourite dresses! This is the perfect dress in so many ways, the shape, the length, the subtle pleats at the neckline, the print and they way that it makes me look slimmer! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!!

Excuse the bad picture - cutting the top of my head off is not a good look! But my hair needs cut again, so I thought I would just go with it!

Busy weekend end for my little family. N and O are off to Edinburgh today to visit family, we are all going to a ruby wedding party tonight and then we have O's future husband's christening tomorrow! Have a great weekend whatever your plans are!

Today's outfit is:

Tribal print dress - Vila
Cardigan - Primark
Necklace - Primark
Shoes - Nine West

Time away.....

I did not post at the weekend as I was not in the shop. We were off on our first family holiday - 2 nights away in Aberfoyle, near Loch Lomond!

I was fabulous. We did nothing, and I mean nothing. We spent almost no money (you have to love when that happens) as we were staying in a family timeshare property and we took my parents along with us....... Honestly, we bought all of the supplies before we went and other than a few nice long walks around the loch we just chilled, ate and drank!

Aberfoyle is in a beautiful part of the world and it is only 2 hours drive from our doorstep. On the drive there it rained, but as we were unloading the car it stopped and stayed off for the entire time that we were there.

While there my BF and I chatted about what we are planning for the shop, for him and I and for us as a family. I think that we have managed to put some plans in place - for the shop especially.

Anyway, I just thought I would post, as we chatted about how I miss blogging but just can not seem to find the time! I leave you with the picture of the view from our balcony!!
