Butterflies & Grumpy Sailors

Today I’m wearing a top I haven’t worn since last summer. I love taking down my summer storage bag. Thanks to 3 kids, my memory is so bad, I totally forget what clothes I have after just a few months of storing them away. So it’s like a big summer shopping trip getting them all down again from the attic
I bought this butterfly top with some birthday money last June and got so much wear out of it over the summer months….we did have a few sunny days – here and there….

Posing beside one of my favourite Graham Knuttel prints. Hubby and I bought this when we moved in together first. I met the artist about 18 years ago before he became really big but unfortunately didn’t buy any originals from him then..not regretting that ONE bit. As Mr SGS and I approach our 9 year wedding anniversary this week, I’m glad to report we’re a bit happier with each other than the two sailors in this picture icon smile Butterflies & Grumpy Sailors
Here’s a close up of the butterflies…

The necklace was a gift from my friend Colette – it’s perfect with this top. My shoes are from Clarks – I picked them up from a nearly new boutique in Belfast called De Ja Vu, last summer – unworn and only £20. I love the detail and the mix of grey and camel. Still available on eBay now and again (see link here)

My Bravissimo (Pepperberry) shrug (last seen here) and H&M skinny jeans finish the look today. I’m way too overdressed for a day of laundry but hey, if you’re going to be ironing, you might as well look good doing it, I say!

  1. I have those shoes and hadn’t thought to wear them with skinny jeans – can’t wait to give them a go.

  2. Gorgeous top – I nearly bought a bird print top in H&M the other day but they didn’t have my size. I’m really pining for something with birds or butterflies! Glad to hear the summer wardrobe is making it’s way out again:)

  3. We had sunny days last year? Are you sure?
