I've had the best, rather busy Saturday baby sitting my princess and then enjoying a party with family and best friends, a
Sunday had me up bright and early and off to breakfast with eldest daughter, her hubby, my princess, son, daughter and my hubby - the reason being 'Mothers Day' - isn't that the best reason to be up early on a Sunday? Not forgetting the clocks spring forward one hour!
A fabulous breakfast in a local restaurant, making a real change as that's something I've not done in a long time.
But hold on that's not all, I've been thoroughly spoilt on Sunday, receiving flowers, vouchers, chocolates along with five awesome cards, all with tear enhancing words!
This weekend superbly finished off with a family meal at our local Prezzo, some nine of us enjoying pasta, pizza, chicken and a good bottle of wine.
Being surrounded by a wonderful family, and close friends this weekend confirms to me that I'm a very lucky and much loved lady.
With the weather warming up a little! wishful thinking maybe, I had in mind to share a Spring look to brighten up even the darkest days of the vernal equinox.
Floral designs are a sure fire way to illuminate a darker outfit, you can do this by adding a skirt or trousers to a plain blouse or jumper, or if you feel slightly over-powered in something as full on as a dress just add a scarf or bag with a flowery design over it. Shoes are another way to add interest to an outfit without going the whole hog.
So anyway onto today #ootd.
You've seen this skirt many times especially with this jumper.
What a fabulous shot of my grey Jaeger bag, hubby bought this many years ago for a Christmas present, maybe with the help of a daughter or two, but picked a huge winner in my eyes and I love using it - especially with my bay tidy I shared with you on Thursday.
Every outfit can benefit from a bit of bling in a stunning necklace, so this often worn beauty did the trick for mine! You can find similar in Debenhams either online or in store.
I acquired this floral, stretchy pencil skirt from eldest daughter a few years ago, it's been like a yo-yo on me, sometimes fits perfectly other times rather baggy, obviously depending on how much weight I'm carrying - lol. For now it fits me, showing me I'm slightly larger than I'd like to be, but hey that's life sometimes! I wore this pastel pink cross-over jumper, you can see it paired with tan here.
To complete this outfit a pale blue cami t shirt along with grey court shoes and my aforementioned Jaeger handbag.
Ok, so I had to have this compulsory seaside photo - can you tell it's me behind the moustache? Lol. Not feeling the blue and white outfit to be fair - rather stiff and boring - lol!
How cute are these knitted toys? All sorts of knitted paraphernalia is attached to various landmarks in the town, makes visiting a real novelty and definitely a conversation piece.
Would you now consider a floral item incorporated in your outfit, or is it something you'd give a wide berth to?
As always I'd love to hear your views and look forward to hearing from you all.
Until Thursday, stay safe and sending all good thoughts and wishes to the people affected by the horrendous attack in Westminster, London. X
With thanks to Esther Ruby for some great photos. X
