Outfit: Stripes and Distressed Denim

23-04-14b

Georgia Rose silver flats


Wednesday morning was bright and sunny and I had a hair appointment to sort out my roots at last. I managed to bag a complete bargain – a cut and colour for a very reasonable price as I was done by one of the trainee girls. It did mean that I spent the whole morning in the hair salon though as she wasn’t as speedy as my usual hairdresser would have been, but I’m not complaining.

In the afternoon I did the grocery shopping and then chilled out at home. We have the whole week off work which is awesome.

I am aware I am pretty much living in these jeans this week, but they're just so comfy. I love the slouchy fit and I love the distressing on them. I took a tip from Cori and put some patches of denim underneath the knee distressing to stop it from tearing further. So far so good, it seems to be working.

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).

16-04-14d


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

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!

14-04-14d


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: Distressed Denim and My Favourite Flats

11-04-14

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!
