Happy Gal

Welcome to the weekend lovelies! Do you have nice plans?
I’ve just looked at the weather forecast and I’m in shock. Big fat sunshine’s, plastered all over the weekend,woohoo!
Today was also a beautiful day, it seems spring has officially sprung here!
Today consisted of some shopping and generally running round after/for the kiddos. I was happy come (their) bed time for pizza and a cold glass of Magners, yum!

Top & Bag:  Both vintage, bag was a gift from hubby at Christmas and i use it for my laptop as is the perfect size!

Scarf: Asos (old)

JeansVery (now on sale and a great bell bottom jean for £17!)

Sunglasses also Very

Shoes: Blowfish via Asos 

I LOVE this outfit, this is me one happy gal.. Its casual but i love each part of the outfit.

The jeans: I have been looking for a great  pair of Bell bottom jeans, to no avail. Tried these and perfection. Great fit, great flare, great length.

The jumper: I bid for it on ebay, and i was determined i wanted it, after a slight bidding war(dont mess with me!!!)i got it for £10. When it arrived there was a hole in it, and right on the boob (peek a boo just isn’t my style!;-) i contacted the lady and she gave me half back so it cost a fiver!

The scarf: had for years never worn, today was its first outing.

The shoes: Wanted to try Blowfish shoes for a while, had a couple of pairs years ago but wanted a chunky wedge style for summer, now these are last seasons but had them for a great price and i love them. Besides, “seasons” have never really bothered me, if i like something it doesn’t matter when its from.

Bag: lovely pressie off hubby which i use every day as a home for my trusty laptop.

All of this makes for a happy outfit for a happy gal.

This weekend i plan on doing lots of ebaying ( selling, maybe a little buying) cleaning (poop!), car boot sale (for my american friends that’s like garage sales or estate sales, kind of! ) and trying to make the most of the fabulous weather.

Do you have nice plans? Would love to hear!

Wishing you a great one whatever your up to!!

Ps one week left until the GIVE AWAY is drawn. Have you entered? xx

    Just clicked on your blog via Parent Bloggers Network because I saw your summery looking photos. Really made me smile and dream of long hot summer days! Now I can't wait for a UK summer and a long hot South African summer in December.

    Have a fabulous weekend! Ax
