For all of us here in the U.K. it is a Bank Holiday weekend, and as we all know the weather on our long weekends is usually pretty sucky. But not this bank holiday…. it has been glorious sunshine since Saturday morning and myself and my hubby have certainly been making the most of it.
Saturday, I spent the day with my Mum and her lovely friend Debbie in my home town of Hereford. It was the River Carnival and it was so lovely to see Hereford so busy.
Here are some photos I took of some of the very creative rafts..
Saturday morning was a little chilly and I knew we would be spending the evening at a family friends house (while I was sat in beer gardens by the river in the sun, my hubby was helping a friend put windows into their new house they are building and they cooked dinner to say thank you).
I chose to wear my old faithful blue and white stripy dress from Seasalt with my Dr Marten sandals, a denim jacket and red belt both from Primark and my lovely heart bag from Not On The Highstreet. As the day went on I did ditch the denim jacket as I felt warm, but I was pleased to have it as it cooled off in the evening.
I had my hair coloured last Wednesday and I am just getting used to having darker, warmer tones in my hair after being blonde for a while. I have to say I’m loving it and a massive thank you to Hair by Escape on Church Street in Hereford for doing a wonderful job. Here is a close up photo of my hair and make up from Saturday.
Sunday, my hubby went out on a 70 mile bike ride (I’d rather him than me) so I spent the day at home catching up on washing and reading Harry Potter A History of Magic in the garden.
It also meant I had a little bit longer to play with my hair and to try something new. Once Ed got home, we went for a little drive and spent some time outdoors. I just chucked on a summer dress from Warehouse with my New Look espadrilles and a Primark belt.
I actually managed to do a half up, half down hair do with a little bun which I’m quite pleased with. I don’t have a lot of hair and what I do have is quite fine so I used a mini doughnut to achieve this look.
Today, Monday, was a scorcher and we went on a little day trip to Bath. I absolutely love Bath, the last time we were there was for the Christmas market and it snowed so today was a bit different with a lot more time spent outside.
Here are some little photos from a wanders which took us to the Royal Crescent and to some beautiful parks.
Today’s outfit was something cool and comfy for walking. My spotty skirt is from FatFace and is a lovely light cotton and comes to just below the knee, perfect for the warmer weather. My top is a body from Gap, I love the fact that it is poppered and so doesn’t come untucked from the skirt when walking around. I teamed this look with my Vans (perfect for walking) and my lovely heart bag again. This outfit was perfect was a really hot day.
I really have had a lovely weekend with family and friends and I have especially loved the sunshine.
Tonight I plan on sitting in the cool and watching Harry Potter after spending most of the day walking in the sunshine.
What have you all been up to? What is your favourite outfit?
