Casual Weekend Outfit

We didn’t do a lot over the weekend, which was quite nice as the past few weeks have been quite busy.  Friday night was homemade pizza night, with plenty of wine flowing and dancing around the kitchen to Louis Prima!

On Saturday we woke up to snow and although it wasn’t really settling, it was coming down thick and fast meaning it was a tough choice to change from my snuggly pyjama’s and get dressed to go out.  Eventually we pulled our fingers out and went over to Wimbledon to return some purchases which didn’t work out.  As I was getting dressed tragedy struck when the zip slider from my favourite (and oldest) Duo black riding boots disintegrated in my hand as I was pulling them up over my jeggings.  I’ve emailed their customer service team to see if there is anything I can do to fix them, as I’ve always looked after them, re-heeling and re-soling regularly etc. and as they aren’t exactly cheap I’d like to get a few more years wear out of them yet!

In the end I wore my brown boots instead and pulled together a casual, Saturday outfit of my new favourite skinny jeans from Dorothy Perkins, a Breton top I’ve had for a few years from Esprit and an oversized floral scarf from Primark.  And because it was so cold I pulled on a navy waist-tie cardigan from H&M so that I could layer up and keep the chill at bay.

Whilst we were out we popped into Asda to pick up something for tea and I spotted this gorgeous underwear set for the amazing price of £6!  Even full price the set wasn’t expensive at £9.50.  The fabric is a gorgeous satin effect in a pale, nude pink with feather print in various shades of grey (50 shades perhaps……..?) Because it was supermarket purchase I tried it on a cup size up and it fitted perfectly.  I had taken a picture of myself in it, but I’m not brave enough to post it – so here are the PG versions 🙂

I’ll report back on how it washes, but the fit is great and it feels really nice on.

We’re also in the process of booking our delayed honeymoon which we delayed as we didn’t have enough in the budget to do both last year, so we just went away for a few days to Edinburgh (which was amazing and a nice break after the craziness of planning the big day).  Anyway, we’re on the cusp of booking 5 days in New York and a week in Mexico to coincide with our 1st anniversary in October.  Once it’s fully booked I can get started on planning my holiday wardrobe!!!!!
