Friday feeling fresh in my white top!

Good day to you all - how are we all?

Friday has me feeling fresh in not only in my white top, but in the cooler weather.
Woken up to a cloudy day with a light breeze - oh does that mean our summer is over?

Had such an exciting day yesterday, you see I was co-host for the very first time on Thursday Fashion Files with Jill and Carrie. Being as it was my first I didn't really know what I was doing but after a couple of  "help" messages, a bit of coaching from middle daughter and a little self belief I managed to link everything up without any major issues!  Feeling rather proud with myself that I succeeded. Yay!

Secondly on the exciting front, taking the dog out for a walk yesterday - we're on a mission for her to lose weight, you see I recently had to say 'goodbye' to my much loved and treasured little dog Candy, See here my Roxy had been neglected in the walking department and had put a bit of weight on, so my aim is to take her for daily, longer walks. 
So back to yesterday I opted for a different route, one I used to take when meeting my son from school, this took me over a stream - Roxy stopped for the obligatory sniff and as I turned to walk over the bridge I glimpsed the trail of a fleeting Kingfisher!  Now I love birds - they amaze me and I've got plenty of feeders arranged in my garden to encourage visitors.  I was so pleased.
It was only a glimpse as it flew away but I'm sure that's what it was - a vibrant blue and orange swish, and it was gone!  I'll be visiting that spot again with no dog, soft shoes and a camera!

This was actually the second 'glimpse' of a Kingfisher, the first time on a canal boating holiday on the River Avon - early one morning whilst moored in a quiet spot  my husband in a whispered voice said there was a Kingfisher on a branch over the water - I swiftly reached for the camera to take a couple of shots when my bestie had heard and tried to get a better view from the side windows - well if you've ever been on a canal boat you'd know that this side window is actually two shutters that when pushed open lay flat against the sides of the boat - yes you've guessed it, the sound emitted was similar to that of a 12 bore shot gun - bang, bang! and the bird flew away.  Result no photos and one embarrassed friend. lol.  We have quite a few laughs about this - one of many when we get together!

I digress - back to fresh white top, this I'm wearing with jeans, prompted by a recent blog view.

I love the plainness of this top, with just the right detail and coverage on the arm, white always makes me feel cool and fresh - Trying to find the link on the site, will update if and when I do.

My old faithful next skinny jeans were the chosen ones today - lucky them, along with M and S previous season sling back.  White with small black dot effect to compliment this beautiful white top.
Suitable for just running errands in, but stylish enough to wear with a dress for a date night out.

AW coming in strong now and I'm seeing some lovely bits - keep up with what I like/need ok want on my Instagram here, where I'll be giving you some fab ideas to run out and buy.

Linking up with The-wardrobe-stylist. why not pay her a visit, she'll love you to.
Until tomorrow - it's been great. X
