What you got planned for the end of the week? Today I'm so excited to be having a spa day with two friends - it's for my birthday (back in May) so will be a real treat. I'm looking forward to a day of R & R, catching up with friends and a super lunch in the delicious country house.
A bit late in the season, but I picked up a neat pair of tailored Bermuda shorts in my local F & F recently, I figured they'd be a worthy edition to my wardrobe, and being white will be a useful piece for the next few years. If the weather is dry, but cooler come the next few months I'll pair them with a thick top or jumper. I may even try wearing boots with them too, so stay tuned for that one!
Anyway last week I decided to slowly blend Summer with Autumn mixing white with rust - namely my long sleeve frilly blouse I bought on my last visit to Venice.
I'm also styling the tan cross-body bag I returned with, my bags play host to the usual bits and bobs - phone, lippy, tissues and purse, however when I'm sporting a smaller more compact bag I often just take my bank cards and a small amount of change instead of my purse. That's when this sleek little credit card holder from Lalage Beaumont came up trumps.
Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.
I found the shorts in the sale section of F & F for a cool £7, I know they'll get lots of use as white goes with anything. They'll be a valuable piece to take on my forthcoming trip to Rome in September where I know I can wear them both day time with casual trainers or maybe dressed up with heels in the evening. Details include deep pockets, detachable belt & pin tucks for a flattering finish.
The little Chanel style jacket came from Matalan ages ago it gets pulled on quite often as it gose with so much. I like the thin black pin stripe & frayed edges. I love this one too!
Lalage Beaumont* offers a sophisticated collection of classic and original handbags and small leather goods that are truly elegant and timeless pieces. My card holder has room for 4 or 5 credit cards with a small section for notes in the middle too. Do stop by and check out the seriously gorgeous designer handbags too, they are mouth-watering. Lalage beaumont also offer clothing and hats - definitely taking a look for the wedding I'll be attending next year. X
Picking the right colour from the choice of nine was hard, but I opted for the orange/tan as I wanted it to match my small leather cross-body bag, all were very appealing, I wonder what you would choose?
