shawled





Shawl - New Look (sale)
Palazzo pants - New Look
Ballet flats - New Look
Nude vest top - New Look
Feather earrings - River Island
Bando - Accessorize


Ever wake up and unintentionally fashion yourself as a walking advert. Today was one of those days. It is no secret that I have been finding lots of fabulous finds in New Look of late. I feel they have really upped their game recently and consequently their prices as well!
This shawl is one of my favourite purchases and was sneakily located buried deep on the sales rack. It reminds me of an antique table cloth that my grandmother use to own. I think the intricate detailing and floaty fringing is really pretty. 


Thank goodness, it is finally it is the weekend; and I have quite a busy one planned. It is my hockey annual Dinner and Dance tomorrow night which gives our club a chance to all get together to celebrate the season's achievements and enjoy a three-course meal and a good boogie.  I am really looking forward to it and have my outfit all planned out. It will be a treat to see each other dressed in something slightly more refined that our standard hockey attire!


Sunday will see me stirring up a flurry of flour in the kitchen. I am part of a 'bake club' at work, which sees a different person each week bring in some homemade treats. Next week is my week, and I am on savoury duty. Cupcakes I can do, but savoury snacks poses quite a mission. I think I may have to enlist my chef boyfriend to give me some assistance...

I hope you all have a great weekend girls.

gorgeous shawl, love the shade, the movement of the fabric...and your hair colour is simply amazing! I also have some cooking to "look forward to" this weekend, I have to prepare a dish for a Eurovision party tonight... I'm cooking some Swedish meatballs, as I decided to randomly support that country ;) Hopefully it will work out ok.
Have a fantastic weekend xxx

This is so stunning, as do you! I have never seen this in my local New Look. If I had, I would totally have snapped it up. When I first saw the photos I thought it would be Topshop or something. Lovely :).
