We had such a lovely weekend. After I finished work on Saturday we headed over to our friends’ house in my home town of Preston. There are three of us and our husbands who meet up when we can for dinner. We mums met when our daughters were just a few weeks old at a post-natal group. Those same daughters have all just finished their third year at university. Those 21 years have passed by so quickly.
My friend is a brilliant and very modest cook. She did a beautiful three course Spanish meal. This is the starter and is the only photo I took because I was having so much fun and talking too/so much.
I wore my Me + Em dress again. Last time I wore it, I accessorised it with mint green. This time accessorised with my Apatchy London sunflower yellow padded handbag. (Remember you can get 15% off at Apatchy with my code Lizzy15).
We stayed overnight at my parents’ home then went for Sunday lunch at a local Italian restaurant. I had linguine gamberetti followed by cantuccini. Both courses were divine.
For this I wore one of my favourite dresses from last year- the black and white broderie wrap dress from Coast. You might remember that I bought quite a few pairs of shoes and accessories for our honeymoon last year too including this bag and shoes, both from Cult Gaia.
I’m well into the countdown for our holiday to Spain next month and I have a few posts to come featuring my practical holiday essentials and also one, possibly two, about what I’ll be packing , (which will include the sunflower yellow padded handbag and the Cult Gaia handbag you see in this post).
In the meantime, if you’re in the UK, enjoy the Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday. Ian and I are heading to to the coast for this. We’re looking forward to catching up with most of our children- we’re celebrating the fact that our daughters and their boyfriends have just finished their Batchelor’s degrees. I’m hoping to crack open my UK beach capsule wardrobe too! Enjoy the rest of your week.
