It’s very rare indeed that I love, (and can justify buying), something so much that I get it in two colours. This is exactly what happened with this cream lace top. I bought its bright red twin in January from the Boden clearance; reduced from £90 to £27. I’ve worn the red several times, (in this outfit with red kitten heel boots) and I adore the exquisite lace details, the swallows, hearts and flowers. When I saw that it was still available in cream, I simply couldn’t resist. At the time of writing it is available in just a few sizes, so do be quick. (It’s worth stalking it though if it’s not available in your size. Check back online regularly for returns)
Cream Lace Top and Skinnies
I teamed the cream lace top with skinny jeans. It’d look just as good with boyfriend jeans, capri pants, wide-legged sailor style trousers or denim shorts too. This is one of my “go-to” outfits. A pretty top, (usually sparkly or lacy), skinny jeans and a pair of great heels. It’s a simple formula that works. Conference to cocktails, girls’ nights in and relaxed dinners out. This is dressing by numbers.
The statement sleeves are divine and it’s only close up that you can really appreciate the gorgeous lace detail; the swallows, hearts and flowers I mentioned earlier.
Zebra Print Shoes
My zebra print shoes are from Zapita and are no longer available because I got them almost four years. In fact, they were one of the first things ever gifted to me. I was still a new blogger and I arranged to meet the founder for coffee when I happened to be in London. I’ll never forget her putting a big suitcase full of shoes onto the table for me to choose a pair. These ones leapt out at me and I’ve worn them countless times. The cobalt trim and heel makes them very special indeed.
What I'm Wearing
I mentioned in a previous post that I had a small skin lesion on the side of my nose. My GP referred me to rule out a type of skin cancer. Thankfully it wasn’t. It was a seborrheic keratosis, which is common in (older!!) adults. Ten days ago I had it removed under local anaesthetic. It needed four or five tiny injections around the site to numb the area. The plastic surgeon removed it surgically and then cauterised it. The whole procedure took just thirty minutes. It needed five tiny stitches which were removed yesterday. It’s healed very well and although I had a black eye and a slightly swollen cheek, it was to a much lesser degree than anticipated. I had to be careful not to get the dressing wet in the shower and I had to alter my sleeping position, but that is the sum total of the inconvenience. It was worth it to have total peace of mind; it wasn’t, and now can never be, anything to cause concern. Aren’t we fortunate to have the NHS?
Harry is playing football on both Saturday and Sunday, so it’s “soccer mom” duties all the way. And Ian and I are going to do some prep work in my garage because we’re getting it converted into an office which is all very exciting.
Have a lovely weekend!
