Dress - Topshop (2005!)
Shoes - Topshop
Cardigan - Debenhams
Necklace - Hobbs
I decided to dig out this dress for the jubilee. (I have always loved the colours of the union jack, but now whenever I wear them everyone is like 'oh, how patriotic are you!'. Yes, and I also just like the colours and wear them lots anyway!) I bought this dress in 2005 for my sister's 21st birthday. I was in the first year of college and about to turn 17 and I hardly wore dresses myself but my Mum treated me to a dress from Topshop. It's so crazy to think that I hardly wore dresses! Now I am the opposite and barely ever wear jeans. I guess it was the start of a good relationship.
I have been baking so much this week! We had a jubilee party in work so I baked 36 cupcakes and a Victoria sponge for work, then a Victoria sponge for a party at my Mum's and a honey and walnut loaf for another afternoon tea today. So much sugar and dairy!
I've also been really enjoying the lovely weather we had in the past week (before the typically wet bank holiday!). We had our first barbecue last weekend before watching eurovision and have been enjoying walks around Sudley House which is just down the road from us.
Anyone else wishing that every weekend could be 4 days long? I've had such a great time off! I've been to a barbecue in Didsbury, party at a lovely twitter friend's, family barbecue and an afternoon tea at a friend's new craft studio.
How cute is this photo of us in the photobooth they had made?! We might have to pinch it off them for the wedding. (If you let us, please Jenny? Hehe)
A 3 day working week and then we are off work for a week! We are going to York for a few nights but will also hopefully be able to squeeze in a few viewings of venues. Oh and did I mention that I'm running the Mersey Tunnel 10k in less than a week? So. Scared.
How have you been enjoying the jubilee and the extra days off work?
