I’m posting a day later than usual this week because I’m away at my mum’s and have been super busy. I’ve been boxing up some of my stuff, including my old Barbie and Sindy furniture which I can’t bear to get rid of! It certainly brought back lots of memories. I should really have been making the most of the nice weather after such a disappointing summer. The temperature has been in the mid 20s the last few days but it’s not set to last.
I noticed that the new season collections are in the shops and it all looks very black, grey and beige. Not my thing at all! Luckily there are still some summer sale bargains and I found this red frill eyelet dress in Tesco for only £9! It will be perfect for taking on my next trip to Madeira in October. Although I have my failsafe holiday clothes, I do like to add in one or two new pieces each trip, otherwise I get a bit bored with what I’ve packed. Also, I don’t want to photograph the same outfits in the same places!
These sandals definitely won’t be coming on any holidays with me though. It’s been a few years since I last wore them and I’d forgotten how uncomfortable they are! No doubt they are more uncomfortable now due to my foot problems. I love the perspex heels though, so they can be my “sitting shoes”! I chose them to go with the cute strawberry print bag. It has a shoulder strap inside but I think it looks better without. But let’s talk about the sunglasses! They are, shall we say, rather “extra”! I’ve long been a fan of Pearls and Swine creations, and last year I bought these and a couple of other pairs that were on sale.
They are definitely more decorative than practical given the dangly beads and red lenses! But nevertheless, I love them and will happily put up with the teasing from Pete! I’m tempted to upcycle some old sunglasses – I’ve got beads and a glue gun and I’m not afraid to use them!
