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
