A Pre Holiday Purchase & WIWT - Denim & Grey With A Pop Of Red

Morning ladies before I show you what I'm wearing today I just wanted to share a quick pre-holiday purchase that is stunning & sure to appeal to anyone who loves a splash of 'Bet'.

As you'll know by now I love a leopard print scarf or two & have been on the look out for a blue version for a while.  So as soon as I spotted this beauty I didn't hesitate in 'clicking the button'.  Made from a mix of silk & modal it's beautifully soft & light.  Although until it arrived I was a little unsure if it would be too light, as I have in the past bought scarves that have seemed perfect only to droop & need re-arranging during the course of the day due to the lightness of the fabric.  However, after wearing it round the house for a couple of hours to see if it passed the non-droop test I can confirm it's a definite keeper with no limpness :-) & will be perfect to team with a navy blazer & white or blue shirt come Autumn.  Plus if you sign up to their newsletter you can get 10% off your first purchase so a nice Brucie bonus too :-)

Back to today & a mega busy one as we're off at silly o'clock tomorrow morning on holiday (whoop whoop!) but before the holiday can begin there's the normal pre-holiday madness of packing all the last minute items that can't be packed until today, cleaning of the house from top to bottom (yes I know it's madness but I'd just feel so guilty not doing it!!) & I've also got the hairdressers for the all important covering of greys & thinning out of my hair to help with what will no doubt be the daily humidity battle ;-)

So a busy day of all the glamour that cleaning, packing & generally rushing around like a mad thing, calls for a very simple look of distressed denim & a grey marl tee with a pop of red for a much needed splash of glamour!
