The children and I went to a birthday party last night. It was for one of my son’s classmates and the whole class was invited. It was rather poignant, as next week they start secondary school. Here in Skipton, we have selective single-sex grammar schools as well as an array of secondary schools which results in a primary school class of 30 moving to up to seven different schools.
They have been a tight knit class from the start and because the same can be said of the parents, we had a separate function in order to celebrate the start of this new chapter and to catch up having missed each other at the school gate during the holiday.
This dress was a sale purchase from Jack Wills at the start of the year. I love the nod to the 1960s with the a-line tunic shape and anything with lace always appeals.
I’ve always loved rose gold and the last few seasons have seen it become more prevalent. The flip flop was a birthday gift from my friend Annemarie and the crown was from John Greed last year. I put it on a long silver chain and I like how the two metals look together.
My rose gold Boden sandals have earned their keep this summer.
Love Liz x
