Life has certainly been busy since we got back from holiday last week. I was barely in the house twelve hours before getting up at the crack of dawn to go to work the next day. The day after I took Isobel to the wildlife hospital with me (keeping kids occupied during the Summer holidays is a full time job in itself!). Then yesterday I had a long and tedious journey across country to visit my mum. It’s days like those I really wish I had air con in the car! That was after a dash round to my elderly next door neighbour who was feeling poorly. All in all it’s been a little hectic!
With all of that it seems hard to believe that this time last week I was on the beach in France! When I go to visit my Dad I like to take outfit photos in the ruins of the chapel on the other side of his field. It’s lovely to sit in the dappled shade there and wonder what it used to look like many years ago.
I bought this Scotch and Soda two piece with some birthday money from family, taking advantage of the half price sale (which is still on). One lesson I learned from my last purchase (when I bought the snow leopard suit) is that Scotch and Soda trousers run big so I ordered a small. They are a little snug on the crotch area but I think a medium would have been too loose on the waist. There’s no stretch in the fabric, which would have been a bonus.
The top is a medium and fits perfectly. It’s a relaxed fit so I knotted it at the waist for definition. I love the contrasting print on the sleeves and neck – it will pair well with mustard or burgundy trousers too. Two pieces or co-ords give you lots of styling options.
I’ve kept my accessories fairly simple with a pair of chandelier earrings and a bracelet my Dad bought for me in Madeira. We’ve just booked to go at the end of October so I’m really looking forward to that!
