I'm very excited to be going on my first Hen Weekend in more years than I care to remember! It's up on the North coast with a lovely group of girls and I'm right in the middle of stressing about what to pack but I thought I'd take a break, do a bit of blogging and hope that it gives me some inspiration for what to bring...
Took these next photos on a quick jaunt into Belfast the other day. It was a nice day but not warm enough for just this kimono top if I'm honest - I braved it all the same as it was too pretty to cover up.
|Kimono Top - Primark (SS12)|
Cream Vest - Jigsaw (via TK Maxx)
Jeans - Maison Scotch (AW12)
Sandals - Clarks (SS12)
Handbag - Orla Kiely (past season)
Pendant - SGS Shop!
I've worn it before on the blog - it's such a pretty top that transforms a jeans and t-shirt, in much the same way as a scarf I guess. I love the colours in it although I've struggled to find a vest that matches exactly but the cream works well enough I think.
It needed something to bling it up though so I opted for my Pluck & Devour Owl & Moon pendant in mirrored gold perspex. This has been such a versatile piece. I worried I wouldn't wear it much but because it's plain gold and not coloured, it works with so much. It also gets lots of positive comments when I wear it. Every shop I was in that day, someone complimented it, which is nice! I have one left in the shop - check it out on this link!
Hubby enjoyed photographing it with various things on the reflection...as I shivered on the footpath!
Right - off now to pack for the weekend. I'm thinking a bit of black, some neon, some heels, and those reliable Maison Scotch jeans, which I can't get enough of at the moment...sorry if I'm boring you with them.
Hope you have a good weekend - if you're in the UK, enjoy the bank holiday and if you're in Ballintoy, Co Antrim...beware the hens!
