Weekends are never fun unless you're around here too

Wow... this weekend has been a scorcher! Makes me feel slightly better about the fact that I'm not going on a proper holiday when I can get just as burnt tanned here!

Me and my Cardies (my lovely old housemates from uni) all had a little day trip to Nottingham yesterday, it was great to spend a day just lounging around drinking cider and pimms by the canal (along with everybody else in the city).

The weather was definitely on our side, giving us an excellent excuse to buy an ice cream and go for a paddle in the fountains on Market Square... we were the only people over the age of about 9 in there but it was just what we needed to cool down!

I'm not really confident enough for the whole outfit post thing, being such a newbie to the world of blogging, but here are a few little snapshots (before my skin turned the colour of a post box...) to show you my new mint coloured shirt which I'd bought a few weeks ago to bring a little splash of the pastel trend to my wardrobe. The skirt I'm wearing has turned out to be a definite investment, rain or shine it goes with practically everything in my wardrobe and I'm finding it just can't come back from the washing machine quick enough a lot of the time!

shirt: Hearts and Bows at Ark
skirt: Topshop 
shoes: Next
 rucksack: Accessorize

Hope you've all managed to get out and enjoy the Great British Summer we've been having, I'm crossing my fingers hoping that the sun is here to stay... especially now that I've actually bought some suncream!


  1. Lovely photographs I adore your outfit! Glad you managed to make the most of the sunshine we've been having!

  2. As I read this it is now raining outside my window, looks like the British summer has taken a turn for the worst! Great photos xx

  3. Love the shirt. Actaully, I love the full outfit in fact. You've practically done an outfit post but in a more interesting way! You're photos are lovely as always..
