Dress - Primark £10 | Coat - H&M
I've been looking forward to writing this post but I've had a bit of trouble with my pictures but alas! Here it goes...
A couple of weekends ago I had a meet up tea & cake affair with my Glasgow blogging lovelies in Snuggle Muffin, a wee cake tearoom on George Street. The girls & I had a lovely time, we were spoiled for choice between all of the handcrafted cupcakes & homemade scones with jam & fresh cream & brownies & tea & yum, yum, yum... *lost in a cake-filled daydream...* Annnnnyway, it would only make sense to go dressed in my fav cupcake colours and since I had to head straight out afterwards I took the opportunity to dress-up for high tea - I even sported my ruffled lilac umbrella/parasol (which by the way I ended up using for both rain & shine lol!)
I had a little bit of a Primark haul after work on Friday & to say I was pleased with this dress purchase would be a major understatement. This wave-textured dress was my bargain of the year so far at just £10! I couldn't believe what a gem I'd found! It's sooo comfortable, stretchy in material which made it even more suitable for the indulgent afternoon I was planning on having! I've teamed this with a flat collar necklace that has both the colour of the dress and the clutch bag merged together which pretty much tied the look together. I've been so impressed with the range of clutch bags available in Primark recently, as you will have seen in my overnight stay in Manchester post I've started a mini collection of them! They could easily pass for something that the likes of Zara or even H&M would produce. The blush pink colour is a favourite of mine just now, I'm feeling I could go really matchy-matchy with the shift dress I wore on Easter Monday.
Crochet is all around just now & I'm loving it. It's so summery!! Desperately in need of some Summer wedges I spotted these in New Look - they were a MUST. I love the cut out details plus they're super supportive so I can literally run in them (actually did for the train...)
Now for my new baby, the new H&M trench. Living in Glasgow, the summer is never really a Summer. So although I'll be out there with my shorts & dresses on, realistically we need a little light summer coat to go to & from. Could this one be any more perfect? I think not! I'd been looking at the one they'd brought out at the start of the season, but when I seen this I grabbed my size & headed for the till. However, my heart did sink when I seen it included in the mid season sale with £15 off *sob* but nevertheless I hope that someone picks up the bargain!
I had such a lovely afternoon with the girls. Since I've started blogging it amazes me just how nice everyone is. It's one of my favourite things about being part of the blogging network, thanks for such great company!
For anyone who hasn't been to Snuggle Muffin I'd recommend their beautiful cakes - they're delicious!
