OOTD - Lazy Lunch Pour Deux

Well I still haven't cracked this sleeping in on a Saturday malarky......lying in bed browsing the internet & perhaps partaking in a spot of online shopping - well I'd go straight to the top of the class!!! Still it's quite nice having the luxury of surfing the net undisturbed & not having to watch the time, even if it is 5 o'clock in the morning & the brightness on my iPad is turned on low so as not to wake hubby!

A day of running errands this morning including partaking in our free cake & tea from John Lewis (oh the glamour!!! seriously who knew midlife could be such fun!!!).  Then seeing as our son has 8 hours of karate to keep him occupied (helping train lower belts, lesson then training for his 2nd Dan in his black belt) the afternoon will involve a lazy lunch pour deux at the village pub & maybe a sneaky forty winks too!

So here's what I've decided to wear.




Top - Zara
Bag - Boden
Bracelets - J Crew & J Crew
Jeans - Zara
Shoes - Zara


How to re-create my outfit.


Navy & Gold


Jacket - Warehouse £45
Top - Zara £29.99
Bag - Boden £66
Bracelets - J Crew £95 & J Crew £95
Jeans - Next £32
Shoes - Zara £49.99


So what have you got planned for your Saturday?  Errands & shopping or time catching up with friends or maybe even joy of joys the housework & admin that seems to have piled up since last weekend?  I'd love to hear what you're up to & what you think of today's outfit.

Have a great Saturday.

    1. Oh lucky you Lynne....whilst I hate packing (trying to remember everything you need & want to take) there's nothing like the excitement of knowing you're going away. Have a fab holiday & hope you're going somewhere sunny & hot.

  2. lovely outfit and super for your day ahead. My day, up to now, consists of making butternut squash and sweetcorn soup and a blackcurrant compote. Later watching the grand national and a party this evening. Just sorted out my outfit for that which, as the weather is rainy and chilly, will be trousers not a dress.

    1. Hi, I love butternut squash but have never made it with sweetcorn before, that sounds yummy not to mention your blackcurrant compote. Have a fab time tonight & hope your house came in on the Grand National ;-)

  3. what size do you think the 12 in the jacket would be - compared to M and S for example?
    thanks

    1. I would say Banana Republic are probably around the same sizing as Marks. Looking at their size guide it says a 12 is for a 36" bust if this helps. They've also now got size 8 back in stock too plus various sizes in the petite version. Plus they offer free returns so if you really like the jacket it might be worth taking a chance or even keep checking to see if they get any more in stock.

    1. Hi AM oh lucky you having a pedicure. Bio gel is supposed to be fab, with the polish & the shine lasting for ages, I'd be interested to know how you get on. Let's hope the sunshine comes out again next week so you can show off your gorgeous toes.
