Well hello sunny Sunday! I'm feeling a touch bleary after devouring two Jamaican mojitos on date night, we went to Reds BBQ and it was super tasty (I may have consumed a donut burger) then this morning I've battled with leftover mascara causing a serious case of bleary eyed syndrome. The Body Shop Camomile eye make-up remover won the battle in case you were wondering but it doesn't half impede my sight, like all eye make-up removers I try - if you know of one that doesn't do this I'm all ears. Today the curly haired tot and I are off to scout out the pop up Grey Suit Clay shop at Swallows & Damsons before meeting the girls for a late brunch. It's been forever since I've caught up with two of my favourite beauties so I'm looking forward to it. I'm even channeling Carrie Bradshaw after watching three Sex & The City episodes but more on that another day.
Todays look is the result of a throw-it-all on errand running outfit which can often go to the pits but I was pleasantly surprised as this came together pretty well. As you'll know if you're a regular around these parts I've never been one to shy away from clashing prints yet it's only recently the I realised that success lies within the colour palette - even though I'm sporting stripes, leopard print and a patterned bomber everything remains within the neutral family and I think it works. Now let's talk bomber jackets and how I now own three (oops) thanks to the Zara sale where I picked up this sports luxe one and a navy one which is reminiscent of jockeys silks meets Grease for just £23. I never normally find that much in the Zara sale but I was beyond chuffed with these finds, especially as I'd eyed up both pre sale. Another fairly recent addition to my wardrobe are these 'mensy' striped trousers, these are a little different to my usual skinny fit but I'm all about broadening my fashion horizons and I've been enjoying wearing these casually with a cami or tee tucked in with Converse or flat sandals like these leopard print sliders from Next. Next is one of my go tos for Sadie sized clothing but is never somewhere I give a second thought for my own clothing but after spotting these sliders on 101 Instagrams I had to get my own pair. I'd say they're a little too flat for long distance strolls but for popping here, there and everywhere they're perfect.
Before I dash to dress bambino and head out I've got to give a mention to my Verity backpack which my mum and dad bought for my birthday. Since having Sadie I rarely switch up my day bag preferring to carry a frankly bland, personality diminishing changing bag but on this day I thought 'sod it' let's get something a little more me on the go. Verity came in more than handy as Sadie was having a carry-me-everywhere day so I quite enjoyed being hands free and not looking incredibly mumsy, something I think every mum fears the most and while I don't think I'll be carrying any Ellas Kitchen pouches in it anytime soon (canvas lining life) I'll certainly be switching my bags up more often.
