HAVEN'T I SEEN YOU SOMEWHERE BEFORE?

....the Boyfriends, the Bis Un Bouts (copy) and the Berry



the tree almost looks as if I'm sporting a huge Afro doesn't it!?

The sun shone its rays on me this weekend, and I was totally unprepared; I didn't plan anything to celebrate the return of the warm and sunny climate; I didn't clean my car (which is a must in my eyes if you're going to go cruising down the lanes with the top down), and I didn't wax (which means bare arms and bare legs is a no-no). I think I had lost faith in the weather-girl; she reported that last weekend was supposed to be enveloping sunshine and 20C, but it was cool and overcast! This weekend on the other hand turned out to be gorgeous..... in Birmingham anyway.



 Boyfriend Jeans  River Island
Pumps  Boohoo.com
Bag  Mulberry at Selfridges
Shirt  DKNY (Bicester outlet)
Necklace  Thomas Sabo

 I can shop in wind, rain and snow; it's my escapism after a long week at work, but shopping whilst soaking up doses of sunshine is idyllic, so that's what I did this weekend. After a mini workout on the treadmill, I went on an impromptu trip to the Bullring - Birmingham's ultimate shopping destination - and did some window shopping, yes window shopping (it's part of my new veto) donning the most comfortable jeans I own, my Boohoo pumps, which are also surprisingly comfortable and my Berry, all of which have appeared on the blog before.

After spending a couple of hours anxiously pondering on what shoes and bags I could spend my mortgage repayments on, I retreated to my local park to grab the last hour of sunshine, buy an ice cream and take some piccies for you guys.

Hope y'all have had a lovely weekend -  what did you get up to?

Later x

  1. I did some shopping recently too. Some actual shopping. I've been just window shopping for far too long.:) Those River Island jeans look really good on you, I like bf cut a lot.

    P.S.: Off by 11 years?!?!?! No way! That was a total shock! I can't wait to tell him.:)

    2. He said he'd had to meet you person.:) I don't know whether it's the haircut or the clothes or just your face, but you don't look nowhere near Kim's age. Well, hey, good for you!:D

    3. Right I had better sort out the clothes, the haircut and probably my face then ha ha. I don't mind looking 5 years younger than I am, but not sure about being mistaken for 10 years + younger eeek!

    4. Oh, please, that has to be the best compliment EVER. Imagine how you'll feel 10 years from now when people will think you're 10 years younger. Better than 10 years older, I say...:)

  2. love the outfit! i love that it is so casual and yet so chic and bag on trend without trying too hard.

    the shoes are a great touch and fun and whimsical

    i must say that the color of your bag looks totally different in this light - in the other pics it looks more of a complex tealy green and now it is blue!

    i love stuff that changes its look like that - very versatile and it suits you xxx

    1. Again I wish you could see it in the flesh; I'd be interested to know your opinion on the colour then. I really should perhaps invest in a better camera instead of just clothes/accessories.

      I got your message about Zatchels (tweeted you a thank you too, but just in case), but guurrl.....let me tell you, I had bought that denim satchel the minute I woke up yesterday morning, no way I was missing out on that bargain - 50% off whoop! x

    2. Oh good - glad you did! expecting modeling pics ahem. no pressure but soon. :)

      No it isn't your pics - some colors are just like that - some have that complexity so it is better. I have one of those clutches as well with an unusual color. sorry i havent tweeted back - i just find tweets still awkward but will try xx

  23. I can see that you are going to get so much use from your Mulberry in that lovely versatile colour. Looks great with denim. I'm enjoying going outside without a coat - a real treat!

  29. I feel you on retail therapy (aka shopping). I cannot think of more perfect shoes to go with boyfriend jeans than these ones. Seriously, I have the same shoes and I have been digging for similar jeans for ages to pair it together. Don't be surprised if you see this on my blog in the future :)
