Tropical Print Co-ord + Style With a Smile Link Up

How’s your week going so far? It seems hard to believe we’re almost at the end of the first week in July! It was Isobel’s 13th birthday on Sunday…we have a teenager in the house! On Saturday she a had a friend over for a sleepover, then on Sunday we went for lunch joined by another of her friends. It was a busy weekend because on Saturday Isobel had a Rose Queen event to attend. I’m getting to know the towns and villages of Cheshire quite well with all the fetes and galas we’re invited to.

This week I started a new freelance job on a daytime TV programme. It’s incredibly busy and I’m having to learn quickly…as well as get up at 3.30am! I am not a morning person at all so it’s been a huge shock to the system. By Friday I’ll need a holiday! I can’t get to sleep early so I have to make up for it by sleeping for a couple of hours in the afternoon, which means I’m pretty useless from midday onwards. But I keep telling myself that pushing out of your comfort zone is the only way to progress and grow. Even before this week, work was very busy; I’ve just finished a period of cover with a different team doing things I wouldn’t normally. All of this has meant that I’ve had next to no time for the blog, Instagram and TikTok. But next week I have a few days off so will be catching up with it then.

Tropical Print Co-ord

You’ve probably seen this outfit before; it’s a summer favourite of mine. Scotch & Soda is one of my favourite brands and this tropical print co-ord comes with me on most holidays. I featured it two years ago styled it an almost identical way. An outfit like this is such an easy option for when I want to look like I’ve made an effort but I’m short on time. Gold jewellery, co-ordinating headband and a bag in a colour picked out from the print is all it needs.

I’m keeping it short and sweet this week as I really need my sleep! I wanted to stick to my link up schedule but have to make some short cuts. Apologies for not featuring the usual three favourites – normal service will be resumed next week!

    Oh my goodness, a 3:30 a.m. wakeup does not sound like fun. The job sounds fantastic though—hope you adapt quickly!

    Tropical co-ords look stunning against the kniphofias, and love the pineapple bag! I remember having early starts but never as bad as 3.30am!

  5. Anna Marcus says:

    Very pretty set, Emma. Love your accessories, they highlight the colours of the clothes and bring a lot of different interesting points. The bag is divine

  6. Nancy says:

    Oh my goodness, that is no time to get up! But I agree with you that it’s good to push yourself to do something new. Scotch&Soda always have such marvelous prints!

  7. Lovely says:

    Sounds like you a busy time for you. The prints are beautiful and the bag is cute. Good luck with your new job.

  8. Pamela says:

    What a fun outfit, gorgeous. Good luck with the new job Emma, challenging but very rewarding I think!

  9. What a great outfit, Emma! I love this fun print and your adorable pineapple bag! Congratulations on the new freelance job. Menopause wakes me up every morning around 3:30 (today it was 1:30) so I am generally useless by mid-afternoon on a regular basis so I totally relate to early morning wake ups making for very long days when you have to coincide with the rest of the world. I hope your body adjusts to the new schedule soon!

  12. This is such a fun outfit! I love the print mixing on this coordinating set and your pineapple purse is pure perfection!

    Such a cute outfit, Emma! I’m a sucker for a tropical print. I’m sorry your new gig is interrupting your sleep. 3:30! Yikes!
