Swallows and Amazons

Dress, Primark
Cardigan, Primark
Coat, Primark
Leggings, Topshop
Bag, Nica
Matryoshka Necklace, ASOS
And so it RAINED. And not only is it raining in August (not such a surprise) but it's cool and windy enough to warrant a coat today.

On a more positive note, this coat was a steal last year in a Primark sale- all of about £5 and I buried it in my wardrobe for future use. I only pulled the tags off it last week and I'm super happy with it. It's a perfect spring/summer coat- lightweight, smart-casual, and it has flowers all over it.

In other news I've been having a very odd sort of a week. I ended up with a bonus day off on Tuesday as it was quiet, a welcome day of pottering about doing the washing, poking my nose into a newly opened TK Maxx locally and eating some pretty delicious home made chinese. Wednesday made me think hard about a lot of things after a bad reaction to what was simply meant to be a little gift. It's just been a peculiar kind of week with odds and ends going on in the background and decisions to be made that are really quite crucial- even though I don't think that's registering yet.

Anybody else not quite sure where their head is right now? I've decided that the remedy to this is to eat plenty of Aero Cookies, enjoy a cup of Apple and Cammomile Tea and enjoy the thoughts of some of the re-arranging planned for my space at home (more on that soon).

And if you're looking for a bit of a pick-me-up, there's still 2 hours left to win something on my Thank You Giveaway.

Oooh, very pretty dress and coat.

Did you find anything good in TK Maxx? I increasingly find that I can't be bothered rummaging through the rails and rails of clothing in there.

that coat was a great find - i love a bargain!

I have the same swallow dress but mine has unfortunately shrunk so is a bit too risque to wear without jeggings!
