Yay ! it's Friday!

Hiya .... It's all good here.  Weather may be on the turn, so ...... wait for it,  actually managed a cardigan today! yes indeedy a full on, long sleeve, to the waist cardigan, alright I've had to remove it indoors, but still had it on most of the morning.  I shouldn't jest, I'm really going to have 'the hump' when it's really cold.

This morning I had the pleasure of accompanying my princess and her mum to baby gym.  This at the local gym club.  An hour long, structured class where they can play, learn new skills, sing songs and generally interact with other children.  My princess loves going and at the age of 2 and four months enjoys balancing on the beam, bouncing on the trampoline, hanging from the bars and singing some of the nursery rhymes.  Mummy's and nannies get to join in with the singing, give aiding hands when needed, chat and have a coffee.  Such a fun way to spend an hour.

My normal daily chores followed gym club, and I'm now home having a bite to eat, cup of tea and a blogging session.

This is what I stepped out in today..







This detailing on the back I'm loving, makes a plain cardigan into a statement.
Also the waterfall front gives this piece a softer look and also matches the frill on the Cami top.








Next cigarette jeans similar here, along with this cute top from Top shop years ago similar here and here.
Here's the aforementioned cardigan.  You might remember I mention a while ago about not having many statement coloured accessories in my clothes collection and I wanted to address this.  So when I spotted this in the Tu range at Sainsburys I decided it would be perfect accessory to have.  I knew this mustard coloured cardigan would match well with a few tops I already have, so when I saw the sale sticker on it I popped it straight into my trolley!   I'm sorry to say that this has sold out on line, but the real meaning I'm trying to convey is buy statement pieces in bold colours that will mix with others items in your wardrobe, that way it brings new life to older clothes.  Items such as cardigans, jackets, shoes or handbags will all do the job.

I also spotted and bought a cute jersey top, but found it has a hole in the sleeve, I'll be returning this and will show you in a post when I've replaced it.

OK ta ta for today - happy Friday and look it's nearly wine o'clock!!
