For the first time in a long time, this is what I’m actually wearing right now. It takes me back to when I started this blog. In those days, I would post a few hurriedly-taken shots that I had bribed my children to take before we set-off for school. I regularly wore a breton top in those days. I had several colours and I’d team them with jeans and a contrasting scarf. They became a staple for me and became ubiquitous on social media and blogs. Frankly, I got fed-up of seeing them so wore them far less often.
However, I decided to wear something lighter weight than a sweatshirt today because I’m feeling rather spring-like and this breton fitted the bill. My ankles made their seasonal debut in my new rainbow trainers, (there’s a discount code below), and I added my longline cardigan and felt very happy indeed. There’s nothing groundbreaking about this outfit, but I like it and I’m enjoying wearing it and that’s what matters.
You might remember that Kiri and Belle sent me these beautiful freshwater pearl hoop earrings. I adore them and have worn them several times already.
Their collection is beautiful so I was unable to resist buying this gorgeous freshwater pearl necklace. It’s the perfect length for layering and I know already that this will become a summer favourite. All we need now is the sun.
I spent a lot of today photographing eyewear. I have literally hundreds of images and a lot of video to go through and edit so I might have do do a bit of that tomorrow. Ian and I will almost certainly go for a walk though and perhaps get a takeout coffee from one of Skipton’s lovely independent cafés. We’ve got some wedding admin to do too and a shelving unit to build in the garage. What I’d give for an extra day in the week. Have a lovely weekend whatever you’re doing.
