Outfit: Monday







Vivienne Westwood-Melissa Lady Dragon 2

I have no pictures from the weekend – there was no time to take them! Friday night we went to the Caribbean night at the local pub. I wore the same as during the day but switched out the red boots for my flat tan ones, and put my ¾ sleeve blue and black check winter coat over the top. And I was glad I had – the rain held off most of the evening but the pub car park was far from warm, despite it being mid August. The steel band were amazing again, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves in spite of the cold. We finished the night in the pub and had a fabulous time.

Saturday we travelled down to Lincolnshire to visit the young man’s goddaughter and her family. She is 5½ now and her little brother is 3. When I said I wasn’t as strong as the young man and couldn’t lift the little brother as high up, the little brother said I needed to have “lots of lunch” to get stronger. Saturday afternoon we had a walk and a drink in a pub in their village. Saturday night the adults ate fajitas and watched 2 of the more recent American Pie movies. Not as good as the originals, but not bad films. Yesterday we drove to a nearby disused railway line so the kids could ride their bikes and we stopped at another pub on the way back. The young man and I headed home mid-afternoon and we had a BBQ for tea as it was still lovely and sunny.

This morning has dawned bright and sunny. I hope to get some laundry done this afternoon and perhaps bake some more cookies this evening.

The mornings are chilling down now so I added a pashmina for warmth on my way to work.

  1. I like how you've tied in the colour of the shoes with the necklace. Will never get tired of seeing these Viv/Melissas on other folks, even though (dare I say it - is this blasphemy?!) found my seal-stamped flatties soooooooo uncomfortable that I e-bayed them last week. I loved the style and gave them few wears, but they were killing my feet. Back to Minnetonkas for me! xx

  2. Thank you. These shoes did pinch my toes the first time I wore them but after that they seem to have stretched out a bit and are fine now. They rub on bare feet if you don't use anti-blister stick but with tights they are fine. I've not tried the flats.
