A New Statement Belt & An Update on My Amazing Week!

Keeping things pretty simple today & teaming an all black outfit with a new accessory purchase from Mango.  Something completely different to anything that I own but I can just see this belt really bringing a lot of plainer outfits together come the warmer months - I'm thinking a simple pair of jeans teamed with a cami, sandals & some fine gold chains & of course my new belt to add that element of interest.

Luckily for me no normal Saturday chores today as I'm off out on a jolly & catching up with two lovely blogging friends Lynne & Michelle in Birmingham.  Which will no doubt involve a glass or two of bubbles & if we get time perhaps even a spot of shopping ;-)  Then back home for a quick change & off to the village club for drinks with friends - a perfect Saturday :-)  So how about you what are you up to today?

Finally for those that have asked, here's my 'pinch me I'm dreaming' moment.  When I started this blog I never in a million years believed or dreamt I would be doing the things I'm doing let alone appearing in a mainstream magazine.  So THANK YOU to all of you who read, comment, support & encourage me - all of this would be nothing without you all & I mean that from the bottom of my heart.






Right I'd better get a move on or I'll miss my train.  Don't forget I'd love to hear what you're up to & if you missed their 25% bonanza don't panic Boden still have 15% off everything plus free postage & returns see here!

  1. A beautiful look, I love all black sets. It is, as I always say, the elegance of simplicity. The belt is very nice.

    1. Thanks Emma, I think the belt is really going to come into it's own in the summer when pairing with jeans & a simple tee - I just love how it's something that little bit different.
