Pretty Pastel Purse

Maybe you saw me unboxing a this Mulberry purse last week alongside a Small Bayswater Satchel and a bracelet and fancied having a closer look?

Mulberry Long Locked Purse in Aqua

Not just a lovely colour but lots of space inside - check it out!

Slow Start to Summer

Can you believe it's the summer solstice today?! This year just has been flying by! And besides that, it feels like summer is only just starting. 
Last week we had a couple of days, which I would actually describe as t-shirt weather! Let's see how long it lasts...

Boden floral print skirt, Mulberry Bayswater
It felt like summer yesterday. Time for a proper summer outfit with some florals. And a zesty bag! I am also still trying to decide which one(s) is going to go, so am determined to test drive loads of them and make a decision!

Skirt: Boden 
Shoes: Zara 
Necklace: Topshop 
Bag: Mulberry

Boden print pencil skirt, grey mark t-shirt, Stella and Dot necklace
It was warmer than I expected it to be yesterday. This outfit always cheers me up because I love greens and blues together! :)

Green jumper and full skirt
It still felt like jumper weather yesterday - and opaques. So I added a bit of colour! 
Jumper & boots: Zara 
Skirt: Rumour London at Wolf & Badger 
Necklace: Oliver Bonas

Zara midi skirt and denim shirt
I was running so late yesterday morning, that I didn't even have time to add a necklace to this outfit (which is becoming a bit of a staple combo). 
I didn't want to cheat in the evening when I took the pic and just add one...

My Mulberry Collection - June 2017 Snapshot

So I was having a bit of a tidy and also thinking about how many bags I have - and how many I actually need. I'm trying to decide which ones to move on and am finding it way harder than it should be. Their bags for goodness sake! This is not Sophie's Choice! 


Anyway, I will hopefully be able to decide soon and the collection won't look like it does right now for much longer 
- so I thought I'd give a quick peek!


Which one is your favourite? And what will I let go???

Transitional Spring Dresses

Last week felt rather autumnal and I quickly moved from sheer tights into opaques. Less separates than usual with 3 dresses in there and a bit of a mixed bag. My favourite is definitely that green Mango dress - though my clumsiness does not always work with the fluted sleeves...

Mango dress with fluted sleeves
Channeling my inner Robin Hood - or would that be Maid Marian...? (The colour of this dress is such a gorgeous green, unfortunately it's completely washed out on the detail pic.) Dress: Mango 
Boots: Marks and Spencer 
Necklace: Olia Jewellery

Grey marl sweater dress from Next
It doesn't feel like June, does it? Rainy and windy and chilly. A sweater dress for a bit of warmth and comfort. In June. *sigh* 
Dress: Next 
Boots: Marks and Spencer 
Necklace: I think it's from Accessorize

Boden retro print dress
Just a hint of red ;) I've had this Boden dress for years and the silk fabric has a few creases that simply won't come out but I love the pattern and thought it's time it got an outing! Dress: Boden 
Boots: Zara 
Necklace: Sainsbury's

Boden Richmond pencil skirt
Where's the summer?! Ok, I'd settle for spring. But this windy and rainy weather has more of October than June?! Back in my opaques for a bit of warmth, I'm attempting to cheer this outfit from autumn into spring... 
Top: Hallhuber 
Cardigan and skirt: Boden 
Boots: Zara 
Necklace: Aarikka

Mulberry Does Summer

I'll dive right in: this gorgeous colour 'Aqua' from Mulberry is the perfect summer hue!


 I can just see this little Bayswater Satchel working with so many summer outfits - can't you?


Alas not mine, I was allowed to make quick video before packing these goodies up to go to their new home. Take a peek!

Late May in Boden

Whilst uploading last week's pictures I just realised that it was a very Boden week: a Boden piece for every day. Completely unintentionally but it just goes to show that they are often my go to outfits when I don't now what to wear.

Boden colour block dress
More colour! I normally don't do red at all and pink usually in a pastel shade but this dress makes them both work for me. Added bonus: the cleverly placed coloured panels define me almost non-existing waist! 
Dress: Boden 
Necklace: Accessorize
Shoes: Kurt Geiger

Boden Richmond skirt with pastel top
Sunny days always make me want to wear colour, especially pretty pastel ones. :) 
T-shirt: Warehouse 
Cardigan & skirt: Boden 
Shoes: Zara
Necklace: Freedom at Topshop 

Boden sequin dress
Don't think the picture does this dress any justice but here we go... Haven't worn this dress in a about a year - maybe a bit sparkly for the office but who cares?! 
Dress: Boden 
Trainers: Converse

Boden print skirt with stripy top
I didn't feel like posting any outfits last week, think I have a couple still somewhere on my phone, so I will catch up with them first. I reverted to something tried and tested when it got warm: mixing stripes with this Boden pattern. 
Top: Sainsbury's 
Skirt: Boden 
Trainers: Converse 
Necklace: Marni for H&M

Flying visit at Cheshire Oaks

Today might have been my most productive and, at the same time, unproductive visit at Cheshire Oaks. Productive because I picked up some goodies for other people and walked out with three (!) massive bags (oh, and a "little" something fore me). Unproductive because the whole process of sorting out the lovely ladies with their goodies didn't leave me much time for pictures - nevermind prices.

To top it off, I popped back in to answer a couple of price questions and little M (who had been so patient and good) promptly banged his head on the corner of a glass shelf. Queue tears and screams - and lots of guilty Mama cuddles! His head is fine, by the way. And we both discovered "Build a Bear".

Anyway, here it goes...
