Yup, that's right, I wore two outfits in two days. Fancy.
What is worth mentioning is that I actually managed to take two pictures in one weekend. It's some kind of record. What probably isn't surprising it that it's taken me more than a week to post, but hey, you can't have everything!
Last Saturday I was at home, seeing my family. We spent most of the day preparing for a party to celebrate my Dad's 60th but in the evening I popped on my Simplicity 5594 blouse with my Heyday trousers (sadly this tweedy fabric is now out of stock but they have some lovely new wool based fabrics in instead) and my new red shoes and had a jolly nice time.
On the Sunday we went out to see a couple of friends for coffee, and I threw on an outfit that I was actually very happy with. I'm less happy with the pictures - I took dozens and these are the best of a very bad bunch.
black and white one, because it's light and pretty and beautifully fitted. The blouse is very old and from a charity shop, I bought it years ago and 'rediscovered' it at my parent's house! Love it when that happens! The skirt is also very old, I bought it at Coast, on a massive sale years ago. It was the last one left and a size 8, but incredibly fit perfectly. I'm a bit bigger now than I was back then, but it just fits me slightly higher up the waist now, which suits me fine. It's a lovely heavy linen too which makes it swish beautifully, but keeps it cool for the hot weather. It's a great skirt. Finally the shoes are another pair I bought in the Clarks' sale, they have an ankle strap and a nice wide heel so they're comfy and practical. Plus, they're very similar to many 40s designs I've seen. I've worn these alot since I bought them, so I think it was money well spent!
I hope you all had a nice time last weekend! ;)
