Just a quick post tonight as I’m badly in need of an early night. Book club is on Thursday night and I’ve still got 1/3rd of the book to go! It’s a fab read – can thoroughly recommend even though I’ve not finished it yet. It’s called ‘The Light Between Oceans’.
Also this week, I started singing with my new choir, Belfast Community Gospel Choir. One word – WOW. What an amazing talented group of people – I was blown away last night! Thankfully, by the end of first rehearsal I was getting the hang of the hand movements and with a bit of work at home, I’ll be ready for our CD recording in October. Just 9 more songs to learn…
You can hear the choir sing on the Youtube channel on this link and check out the website if you want to know where we’re singing locally over the next few months.
The theme this week so far has been finally wearing some heavier tops that I picked up in the sales. Yay! Yesterday was a soft and cosy cream jersey top from Joules that I bought on holiday in Portrush in July. I remember sweltering as I tried it on…yesterday I had to add a scarf…the ‘I’ print scarf from the shop. It’s a classic simple scarf that looks fab with cream.
I started out in my Hobbs loafers (eBay) but it soon became clear that the ankles were not happy…so for the school run the ankle boots (Clarks via eBay) and a jacket (H&M SS12) were added. Jeans are my Maison Scotch bargains that I am struggling not to wear most days as they fit so nicely.
Tuesday, it was the turn of a Petit Bateau breton that I got from Atterley Road back in May or June. It’s the most amazing quality and a lovely weight – perfect for autumn though unfortunately out of stock now. It was a nicer day today, so the ankles got out for a dander and I didn’t need a jacket. Same jeans today…was a grab and run kind of getting dressed today!
Grey Leather Handbag – Siopaella (consignment store)
Scarf – TK Maxx (AW12)
Jeans – Maison Scotch (AW12 similar here)
Burgundy Pumps – Clarks (ancient)
Sorry about the mirror selfies – my budding photographers are in school all day now! Will have to dust off the tripod tomorrow!
Hope you’re having a good week so far…back tomorrow with some pictures from my kids’ first day back at school..was I sobbing or celebrating? Watch this space
