Lemon & Coral

Happy Friday folks! Weekend is here and i am glad of some down time, let me tell you! 

My friday has been super lovely so far. My lovely sis came down with fabric from her store and i have dabbled in cushion cover making. It’s been fab… although i’m definitely not a natural at sewing ( i stabbed my thumb on a pin and bled everywhere:(!!) But as a first attempt they came out pretty sweet!Posted pics on instagram(of which i’m totally addicted!) are you on there? Would love to follow, let me know your user name in the comments!

Today we also went for an appointment at a local crèche for Neo. It was amazing, i’m so excited for him to start and be around other kids and have hands on activities, more so than i can provide for him at home (ie, sand and water play, huge outdoor facilities etc) he was in his element and didn’t want to leave. So fingers crossed he’s gunna love it there.

Anyways, outfit wise i fancied Friday as a casual day. The thing is i wear frocks and skirts probably 85% of the week, so i do like a bit of down time in some jeans and a simple outfit. Then my brain goes into overload and thinks “is this boring, to simple?” But then i think perhaps i’m over thinking it. I read that Kendie has the same issues sometimes… less can be ok, right? Am i over thinking things here?

Sweater & Floral Brogues: Clothing at Tesco
Jeans: Next (Old)
Necklace: Asos (Old)
Bag: Matalan

Let me tell you, i LOVE these shoes. No wearing in needed. Popped them on today for the first time and they are lovely and soft and comfy. What a pleasure to wear.

I’m really liking lemon and coral together, it feels fresh and summery (even though summer/spring still doesn’t wanna come visit this town!!)

I’m looking to wear them with tights and a dress possibly soon.

This evening i’m off to see my lovely friend Charlie and she’s cooking me tea! Yum!!

Have yourselves a lovely weekend chickies and i will see you soon!!

Ps.. if you haven’t yet, would love if you could click this link and “like” my photo… So far i’m in second place!! Fingers crossed!!!

    I love the colour combo & brogues! I never used to like brogues at all, but my mind seems to have changed recently!
    Hope little Neo gets on well at the crèche! Xo

    I've voted for you! There's nothing wrong with a pair of jeans every now and then it's when they become a wardrobe staple and become a uniform that it gets dull. You look lovely, the necklace and yellow sweater make your skinnies unique and pretty! Have a lovely weekend. x

    yes, completely overthinking it i'd say. you look fab! i mean, look at those shoes (swoon), your beautiful necklace, and those gorgeous bright colors! very far from boring. in fact, i think it's quite nice to see you in a pair of pants for a change! 🙂

    also, i feel your pain (haha) about stabbing yourself while trying to sew. i did the same thing last week, except i actually got my finger sort of caught in the needle of the sewing machine. all by myself with no one around to help. not pretty but i survived 🙂

    i think i must have said it 2 or 3 times already today, but i'll say it again. i hope you have a wonderful weekend!!!

    Hi Rachel,

    Aw, aw, aw! I adore that coral necklace! I'm trying to find a coral color statement necklace, but haven't found any. I have a similar one in white though.
    Thanks for visiting my blog, and please stop by again soon!
