Outfit: Easter Monday



Georgia Rose silver flats

A belated Happy Easter to you all! I hope you are all enjoying the long weekend. We have had friends to stay since Thursday evening so it’s been a bit hectic. We’ve had meals out and seen friends and played in Roundhay Park and climbed two of the Yorkshire Three Peaks.



The peak climbing was on Saturday – we did Whernside and Ingleborough and couldn’t have asked for better weather (other than the strong winds at the top of the hills but then we were rather high up).


Today our friends went home so we’ve been tidying up the house and chilling out a bit. It was lovely and warm and sunny until about 4.30pm when the rain started.

Outfit: Day Out



LTS navy dot flats

Yesterday my sister and I headed off to Harrogate for a day out to celebrate my birthday, and lunch in Bettys tearooms. You can see the blue sky in the close-up photo, and it was beautifully warm and sunny all day.



I wore skinny jeans so I could put my wellies on over them for walking around the RHS gardens in the morning and wore flats to be comfortable for the rest of the day. The shoes were appropriately a birthday present from my sister a couple of years ago. The jeans are the ones I mentioned last week that were purchased with a gift voucher kindly supplied by Spartoo. They are by Esprit, which is not a brand of jeans I’ve owned before but I’m really pleased with them. They fit well and seem very long in the leg (they’re marked 34” leg but I’m sure they’re a bit longer than that).


In the evening I went out for tea at the local Wetherspoon’s pub with some of the drama group.

Outfit: Shoeper Challenge 2013/14 Save 70 | Birthday Girl!



NL navy flats

As I mentioned yesterday, yesterday was my birthday. Working on your birthday totally sucks but I have tomorrow off instead so that will make up for it.



I wore a cute little dress with flats and tights as the wind on Sunday was cold so I wasn’t sure how warm the spring sunshine would really be. I didn’t add a belt as I needed room for cake!


Now that we’re getting some better (dry) weather I can start saving some of my fabric flats. This pair is from New Look and were bought for about £10 a few summers back.

Outfit: Sunny Sunday in the Garden



George Zebra Flats

Yesterday was really sunny but also really windy. I headed over to see my little sister and we went out for dinner at a local pub. In the afternoon we went to see our parents and played football in the garden with my niece.


I got these fabulous distressed jeans from my parents for my birthday (which is today!) abut as they arrived on Friday afternoon I thought I’d wear them to go and see my mum and dad yesterday.

Outfit: Distressed Denim and My Favourite Flats



Jones Bootmaker red suede flats

These jeans are another item I pulled out of storage last weekend. I put them away in the autumn because my left knee tends to get chilly when I’m wearing them. I didn’t intend for them to be ripped jeans really – when I bought them they had what Long Tall Sally described as a small amount of distressing on the knee. Well that became a big rip the first time I wore them. I don’t mind though, distressed jeans are the thing this summer.



The top was purchased with a voucher kindly gifted to me by the lovely people at Spartoo. Back when I used to write regularly for them they only sold shoes and bags, but now they stock quite a wide range of clothing too. This top is by Best Mountain which is a French brand that I hadn’t heard of before. I love the slouchy fit and the studs which are stuck on. The sleeves are about long enough (good considering it’s a non-tall item) and the hem is slightly longer at the back which is not a style I have worn before but I really like it. I also got some jeans with my voucher; those are yet to make their debut on the blog or indeed on my body!



Finally my red suede flats. I’ve been in heels all week this week, and in the evenings too with being at the theatre for the show, so I decided to give my feet a rest today. These are comfy, pointed and in a lovely soft suede. They are so comfy that they are the flat shoes I pick out most often (as long as it’s dry outside).

Have a great weekend everyone!

Outfit: More Cobalt and Black



Georgia Rose Venette blue suede ankle boot

One of the problems with not blogging every day is that I’m finding I’m posting similar outfit consecutively, even though I wore something completely different in between. And I know, #firstworldproblems and all, but there you go. If you follow me on Instagram (and if not, why not?!) you will know that yesterday I wore a bright red sweater with navy and white stripes. I usually post to Instragram on my off-blogging days, as well as other random snaps throughout the week so hop on over there and follow me!



So back to today. This skirt was pulled out of storage at the weekend. It’s black which is not particularly summery, but it is made of quite a light cotton fabric (and is in danger of pants-flashing if there’s anything more than a gentle breeze, hence the black tights!) so isn’t really suitable for the colder months.


It’s the drama group’s annual show this week and although I’m not really a member any more I’m still happy to help out show week doing front of house and entertaining the dignitaries (presidents of other local societies plus the mayor) on the night they are invited to watch (which is tomorrow). So that means it’s shaping up to be quite a busy week for me.
