Bank Holiday long weekend - time for two family functions and then chill!

Hello there, how's your bank holiday going? Nearly over now but whether you're been shopping, working or just chilling' I hope you made sure you had fun!

I really rather looked forward to Sunday, making a change from the normal routine, went out to not only one family function, but two! 
Firstly popping into my niece's house for a house warming party.  The usual suspects were there congregating in the new little house that my niece and fiance are making into a wonderful little home. where we enjoyed a buffet and a few drinks to help them celebrate.

Then on to my bestie's for a celebratory drink for their wedding anniversary, a special one?  No, but any excuse to have a shindig works for me!  We also checked out the photos from her son's wedding a couple of Saturdays ago.  The weather stayed fine, enabling princess and her cousin to have a dip in the hot tub!  Nannie had a big wet cuddle when she came out, but that didn't matter so long as I got a cuddle.

With the weather still delightfully hot I opted for this look -
my purchase from last week the gorgeous black, red, white and yellow shirt dress. See here about my Matalan sale purchases.

For comfort I wore M and S sling back pumps, with a slight heal and a nice padded insole they were perfect for having a little dance - hey presto! no sore feet. Bliss! Similar here.

I thought about either wearing a skirt or long cami dress but in the end I chose to wear three quarter length white jeans, similar here  and because it was so warm I just had the shirt dress on, it's thick enough to not be able to see through so I didn't have that worry - I'm not a fan of seeing my bra through my top!

Popping into town now maybe for a spot of AW shopping, preferably not 'window shopping' either. Just to finish off the lazy weekend we'll be stopping off for a spot of dinner too, so I'll see you tomorrow, enjoy the remainder of the long weekend, and here's to a short working week. Yay!

I'm very excited to say my god-daughter, who's a keen photographer, has hinted she'd love to take some shots of me for the blog - hurrah someone wants to do a shoot with me!  I'll be letting you know when this comes to fruition and be showing off the piccys with pride.
Off to get ready now, hope you have the best afternoon and evening I'll see you tomorrow.
