Last Few Days

Although I do not want to become an apologetic blogger, every post a sorry for the lack of posting, at the same time I have been a little neglectful of late. So, I thought I would share with you some of my last few days, spending my time away from the computer...

Eating fish & chips at the seaside... a trip to the coast on what was probably one of our last days of British summer




Cinema outings to see 500 Days of Summer and Broken Embraces with September Issue to look forward to on Saturday - a new relationship means lots of dates - I'm not really complaining!


Some new buys... flowers for my living room


Another new hat - this one from Best Vintage in Newcastle


A dress from H&M - I like the forest print on this but I debated for a while before buying, its' distinctive print will be a major faux-pas if someone else wears the dress at the same time


One can never have too many stripes in one's wardrobe - these are both over-sized, a t-shirt and a dress


And I finally got my old faithful See by Chloe trench coat shortened to knee-length, I have already had so much more wear out of it


So a little insight into where my time has been lately, nothing too exciting - just living life!

There's no such thing as a clothing faux pas. Just make sure you get a TWINS picture for me!

Looks like you had a lovely time away from blogging the past few days...i love your dress too!

Looks like you've been having a lot of fun! That beach looks beautiful, where is it?

Your trench looks lovely, I have a Nine West one which I get out every year, they're so versatile.

I think I might see 500 Days on the weekend, if I can drag my boyfriend there!

I was scouting for Lula in Borders yesterday and just ended up looking at magazines for ages instead! Unfortunately I had a fruitless trip.

Hope you enjoyed the rest of the summer! I had a few nice days in London, but unfortunately it's bit drearier right now in Paris. Great dress... I know what you mean about distinctive prints and H&M. Every time I've bought a top there, I've seen someone else wear it the next day.

Those flowers are STUNNING, as are you, as always. Never apologize. Although, I feel the same way, with all of my training lately, I've been too tired most nights to post, so have been at my lunch hour. Doesn't make for the ideal situation. I'm going to catch up this weekend. Hope you have a lovely weekend yourself! XO!

Love the H&M dress. A whole lot.

Can't wait for 500 days of Summer, either! Michael Cera and Zooey :)

Winnie said...

Ooooh I want to see a pic of you in the chloe trench!

You've reminded me that I must go and watch broken embraces!

The fish and chips are awesome. Sad that summer is gone, but I'm very excited about the changing of the seasons.

And I do enjoy the forest print on that ruffled H&M dress. Don't worry about showing up at an event wearing the same thing. Chances are slim that will happen, but own your look if it happens ;)

I've been discovering some great things at H&M recently!

yulanda said...

I can't wait to see how you work the H&M dress. I was looking at it in the store today!

Rosie Unknown said...
