Weekend Wear

Happy Friday Everybody! 
Man am i glad its the weekend... when am i not?!
I had no outfits of interest to share with you, its raining and horrible outside and i'm still battling this awful cold! I think its the back end of it now but my face is still suffering the aftermath, you know, the dried bright red nose from so much wiping, the blood shot eyes from lack of sleep, the hunched over body from achey bones... i am the picture of prettiness right now... or not!!!

So i found these picture on my phone from a couple of months ago, when we had a rare weekend of sunshine. Oh sunshine how i miss you!!!
Now i have issues with weekend dressing sometimes. We often spend it (nice weather permitting) in nice parks with the kiddos. Now i battle my brain on these occasions with do i dress practical or pretty?
The day normal consists of walking, chasing escapee toddlers and more walking. So i normally opt for practical. But what do you do? Do you dress practical for days like this in parks or do you wear pretty frocks and high heels?

Tunic & Jeans: Next (old)
Brooch and headscarf:Vintage
Sunnies: Very
Shoes: Dorothy Perkins (old)
Necklace: so old i forget (about 10 years old)

So this is what i pick for those kinda days. Comfy ballet pumps and stripes with little hints of vintage. It wasn't a hot day but sunny and i felt just right all day.
Any ideas for casual days for me to try out? I would love to know!

We're off to my inlaws down London way again for the weekend. hopefully i will leave the rain at home.
Have a super lovely weekend!
Take care!


  1. Glad you're feeling a bit better now, I have a cold too just in time for my graduation ball, I'm going to look so great in all the pictures with my red nose!

    I basically live in dresses so for more casual days I go for longer dresses with oxfords to be comfy. I love your enamel brooch!

  2. Im glad youre beginning to feel better :) Love your stripes. I throw on some shorts and a comfy tee shirt if I head to the park with the kids. No point in torturing myself with the heels and chasing them down lol. Have fun in london with the inlaws :)

    ps. Hi Hubby :)

  3. You look lovely! I cannot imagine trying to run after small children in high heels and a vintage dress, but this outfit seems to cross nicely between stylish vixen and mummmy. Glad to hear you are feeling better, I'm currently curled up in bed with a teddy bear poncho on refusing to leave the house. I feel so lucky I've got the time right now to be ill and not have to run around desperately trying to get stuff done.

    Have a great time in London, and I hope the weather down there is better than it is up here xo

  4. You strike the perfect balance between pretty and practical =) love this outfit!
    Have a great weekend away!

  5. Cute, I love stripes with red details :)

  6. You can still look pretty and practical and if anyone didn't know that you just proved it! I much prefer practical dressing xxx

  7. I look that brooch with the stripes - it's my favourite look I have seen today. It so simple but chic!

  10. Practical. Always practical when children are involved! And clearly you can look pretty and chic when dressing practical - you have demonstrated this!
    So jealous of you off to London! I love London! I was supposed to volunteer at the Olympics but I kinda went and had a baby instead ;) Enjoy you're time away! Xo

  11. Glad you're feeling better and hope you'll get well soon. I'm in the way to a cold too :(
