Flooding & Leaf Print

What a week – somebody remind me this is June? I’m battling on however with my bright colours and prints as it’s one way to keep the spirits up…

Here I am in our post-flood garden wearing my new Room 31 top. It’s got a great rubber plant leaf-print going on which is so different to a lot of the bird/butterfly patterns everywhere. I also love the detail on this top – the frill down the front and a cute button detail on the shoulders…

I mentioned the flooding because Northern Ireland saw torrential rain this week. Here is the garden just the evening before:

And here’s Mr School Gate Style and my 8 year old (wearing my Merrell Wakefield – kept him totally dry!) trying to sweep the water towards a manhole:

Thankfully, the next day was dry(ish) and fairly warm but even now, a couple of days later, there’s a puddle in the garden…and it’s still raining, although in a more ‘normal’ way….because rain in June is now the norm. Sigh. 
I wore my Room 31 top with Primark skinnies, Deichmann pumps (read more on my Facebook page) and when I went out, I popped on this M&S poncho/scarf/throw. Don’t quite know how to describe it but it’s great at this time of the year!

Ok, off to plan tomorrow’s bright & cheery outfit…have a great day x

  3. Love the top – that green really suits you! The garden doesn’t look too bad now – I’m sure it will recover…we’ve got big storms passing today – this weather is SO weird – meanwhile Colorado is burning and the East coast of USA is in 3 digit heat wave…

  4. Love that top on you and I hope the weather improves for you this weekend!

    I just noticed that you are now the model for this top on the Room31 website – is that the new sideline?!
