Hi there, how's it going? Not long now till the weekend, hopefully the weather will get back on track with sunshine & no rain!
It was a special day for MummaB yesterday - hubby and I celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary.
Marking the occasion with our usual visit to Reads. You can read about my special date at Reads last year.
We dined on absolutely amazing food, from Ham Hock Terrine, Montgomery Cheddar souffle, Angus Fillet Steak & Pork with fruit jelly on a bed of squashed potatoes & cabbage. Divine food that simply melted in the mouth! Finishing off with a Hot Berry souffle, I was full to the brim! I did have a little room left to taste hubby's cheese & biscuits. This was complimented by a bottle of our favourite Champagne Laurent-Perrier surprisingly presented upon arrival and was a touching gift from my lovely mum-in-law, many thanks. X
The last time I wore this Jacques Vert dress was at a wedding, check it out here. I just adore pink, the brighter the better, & this lace creation ticks all my boxes!
The grey liner peeps through the lace layer, complimenting the hot cerise pink as grey always does. I matched in grey wedges along with a pewter clutch bag. Mixing textures will add interest and depth to any outfit, & mine is no exception.
Hubby looking as handsome as ever in his bright yellow polo shirt, I think we look like Lord and Lady of the Manor - lol.
Once we'd returned home I was presented with a present! Shocked that hubby had bought me one and saddened that I hadn't got anything to reciprocate - I gingerly opened the package.
Being told once or twice that evening our 31st anniversary represented 'a time piece', oh crikey what had he bought me? A watch? A clock? I fell about with laughter (helped by the glasses of champagne and wine) when I opened the box and this was what I found!
Ha Ha Ha - a timer! Well it is a timepiece!
Onto today's outfit.
I picked this dress up by chance a few weeks ago, wanting a stripy dress for years I took a chance that it would fit without being too tight.
A tee shirt material which is rather basic in style - it's a long version of a Tee you'd wear with jeans.
I sized up to try and avoid it being too clingy also wore it with BIG knickers to iron out any unwanted bulges. Both actions came good - the dress, I think looks great.
It came from Primark and I'm almost embarrassed to say it cost £6!! A real throw-away dress if ever there was one!

A cross-over bag works well with the straight dress, my choice of plain black leather to match the suede ankle strap sandals. The bag is ages old from TK Maxx, they've got a great range of handbags in store, all designer & all smashing prices - I nearly always find at least two I want to buy whenever I pop in!
Do you like the venue? My daughter found this painted underpass the other week and thought it would be a suitable backdrop - how right she was!
Thank you Esther Ruby for the super photos.
Until Monday - thanks so much for visiting my blog.
Let me know what you think about my dresses, I love to hear from you. X
Bye, bye ....
