The last few weeks have been incredibly busy and I’m still catching up from it all. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen that over the last two weekends I’ve been to three university open days with Poppy. I did a therapeutics course too, part of the CET, (continuing education and training), that I need to do before I go back to work in optometric practice. Last week, I accompanied Poppy to Leeds for her driving theory test, had various meetings and went to Harry’s end of season football awards nights, (which is to where I wore this outfit).
I’m feeling very much “in the pink” right now. Since having a uterine ablation in May, I’ve felt infinitely better than I have done in years- I’ll write about this in greater detail in due course. I’m happy and so excited, not just for my future, but for that of my children too. They both seem so content and “sorted” right now. I can’t wait to get back into practice and I’m counting the days until our holiday. My career seems to be in a happy state of flux right now and I’m embracing this wholeheartedly.
In The Pink: Rose-Coloured Glasses
You might remember this pink, broderie anglaise halterneck dress from the blog post about my mini-break to Brighton this time last year. It’s super feminine and I always enjoy wearing it.
The leopard wedge sandals/espadrilles are from last year too, but the sunglasses and earrings are new. Something else I’m very excited about is a collaboration with ROAV eyewear. There’s a lot to show and tell tell about this brand, so I’m going to write a post dedicated to it. I’ll just say at this stage, they are the world’s thinnest folding frames. I have tried and tested several styles and I am now, (or at least I will be once I finish uploading them during the week), selling a curated collection of my favourites in my online shop.
This is Zuma, in the pink mirrored lens and black frame colourway. The ROAV Zuma is also available as black frames with blue or grey lenses and as silver frames with grey lenses.
My earrings are by Toolally and another thing I did last week was go to meet them at their head office, just ten minutes from where I live. Everything is hand made a few miles further down the road in their Barnoldswick studio. The use of acrylic makes for incredibly lightweight and comfortable earrings. The fastenings are made from sterling silver or 22 carat gold vermeil. These are the half-moon drops in raspberry and they come in four other colourways too.
But don’t just take my word for it. Lisa, The Sequinist and Catherine, Not Dressed as Lamb are also fans. And if that isn’t enough, Lucinda Chambers, fashion director of British Vogue featured Toolally in an editorial. Praise indeed!
I have a special discount code which will run throughout July. Get 10% off Toolally with the code Lizzy10. Do take a look at their website. There are so many stunning styles and as I said, they’re very lightweight and comfortable.
