The sudden burst of warm weather meant that we could take to the beach for the first time this year to get some outfit photos. It’s one of my favourite places to get pictures – not just because of the fresh air and gorgeous scenery but Small Child is always happy to play in the sand whilst I do the blog thing. Win win all round. Now that the weather has returned to what it should normally be for the time of year, I’m already missing the vanilla skies and the opportunity to wear ballet flats without getting frostbite.
It was all about the accessories last week with over sized watches on the blog and a beautiful leather bag from Jane Shilton and an Aamaya by Priyanka Rose Quartz ring both arriving – expect to see more of these soon. Oh and having been tempted by a Michael Kors sequin skirt from The Outnet, the God of Manhattan Luxe taunted me further with a pair of peep toe mesh ankle boots in Grazia magazine. I’m steadfastly ignoring them seeing as the skirt is now hanging in my wardrobe.
Part of our family evening ritual usually involves a quick pre-bedtime Lego session of sorts and Small Child has developed a fondness for the very girly Lego Friends. I think this provides a good balance to the rest of her collection which is all about Star Wars, Ben 10 and Ninjas…besides, the pastels are very this season!
