Last Friday night was the first night out of Party Season. We had a girls’ night to celebrate three of our birthdays, an annual event I always look forward to. These friends are all local and we met because our children all attended the same primary school. The oldest of these have now gone off to university, but we stay in regular contact and never go too long without some form of catch-up.
Ian took these photos of me before I went out. The Canal Basin in Skipton always looks pretty, but never more so when the sun is just setting.
Multi-Coloured Star Top
I’ve bought a few new things lately including this multi-coloured star top and the wide leg cropped jeans.
I’ve always loved stars, particularly on winter clothing. This multi-coloured star top is new this season, but it’s lightweight enough to wear in warmer weather. It’s a good all-rounder!
I love the shirred elastic cuff detail.
My double star ring is a favourite. I love the matt gold but it’s available in silver too. The multi-coloured glitter clutch is also from Boden, but from about five years ago. (I have a matching belt which you can see in a few of these photos and matching Mary-Jane shoes too).
Wide Leg Cropped Jeans
I had my eye on these Boden York Cropped Jeans since last spring but because summer was so warm, I didn’t order them. They’re now reduced to £42 and I bought them when I got the girlfriend jeans that I’m wearing in the previous post.
They’re still available in almost every size. They have more than a nod to the seventies about them, a trend that will continue for the forseeable future, so I know they will get plenty of wear. I’m 5 ft 9 inches, (175cm) tall and I’m wearing the UK size 12 long. I’d say they fit slightly small so size up if you’re between sizes. (There are still a lot of very good reductions in the Boden mid-season clearance so it’s worth taking a look).
I’ve had these darker-than-normal leopard print shoes for two years now and I still get a buzz from wearing them. They’re clearly very high, but they are really quite unbelievably comfortable.
With the girls’ permission, here are a few photos from our evening out.
