4 Weddings & No Funeral.

In 2015 we (Jaimie and myself) have 4 weddings to attend. 4! One of which is a reception, one I will be a bridesmaid and the other two will be ‘all day-ers’. Now, apart from the Susans wedding where I will be a bridesmaid, I have the dilemma of deciding what I shall wear to the other 3… I have been looking at one website in particular (Asos) and have found some stunning dresses, clutches and heels, all of which I would like to purchase. I thought, what better way to make sure everything suits, than to make a board on Polyvore (check out the website, if you’re into fashion, you’ll find this so much fun!). Here are a few of the outfits that I am loving and desperately want to purchase.

Wedding Outfit 1.

Wedding Outfit 3.

Wedding Outfit 4.

Bag – £24

Now, I already have wardrobes full of dresses and mountains of shoes and bags, but I don’t really own anything that is wedding appropriate (though I am sure Jaimie would beg to differ!). All of the these outfits are over £100, but by the time I start look to buy my outfits then they should HOPEFULLY be in the sale… (wishful thinking!), because as most people know, weddings are not cheap and for me to spend that amount on an outfit would be crazy…

I Went Shopping Part 25.

I haven’t done one of these posts for AGES(!) and felt that it was about time to do another.
Now, most of my money goes towards paying the mortgage and household bills, so, I’ve not had a great deal of disposable income to splash on clothes, shoes and accessories. WHICH MAKES ME SAD.

As we’re stepping into Autumn I have been buying lots of jeans and jumpers (with a few dresses thrown in) to keep nice and toasty when going for my autumnal walks (which are the best walks!).

Everything you see here is from G21 @ ASDA, Primark, Matalan & Asos.

Wedding Recption Fun Times.

Last Saturday we attended Jaimie’s friend Calum and his wife Fran’s wedding reception at The Balmoral, it was great fun and the bride and groom looked fantastic. It was nice for us to be able to dress up, have a night out and let our hair down as we don’t tend to do that very often as we’re old and now have a mortgage and a kitten (it wasn’t a late night however as I was working the next day).
Here is a few pictures of the evening, featuring the bride & groom, myself, Jaimie and his bbf Ally (and not forgetting the outfits!).

Jaimie is wearing trousers and tie from George at ASDA, shirt from TKMaxx, shoes from Clarks and the navy velvet jacket was my grandads.

I’m wearing a dress from George at ASDA, shoes from ebay and the coat is from M&S.

What I Wore.

Today me and Jaimie went for a walk from Portobello to Musselburgh and this is what I wore.

Leggings, oversized army shirt, creepers, jacket, bobble beanie and bag.

Twas a lovely day for a walk, not too chilly and only a smattering of rain. I managed to pick up my winter cider from Lidl, which made me super happy!

I am in the process of lightening my hair, but we shall find out tomorrow if it has worked. I have only stripped it today, tomorrow is D day!

Anyway here are some pictures!

I’m In With The In Crowd.

I gave in and succumbed, I am now the proud owner of UGG boots.

I have always had a pair of Fuggs, fake uggs if you will. You know, the ones from high street which don’t keep your feet warm and if there is even the SLIGHTEST bit of water make you slip and slide about the like you are competing in the ice skating section of the winter Olympics!

This was not a decision taken lightly as they cost A LOT and I would see these as an investment rather than a fashion statement. For I shall (and will try not to) wear these with ‘cottons’ and a Jack Wills jumper, I AM NOT A STUDENT or a teenager.

I knew the pair that I wanted, my eyes had been set on a pair of ‘Baileys’ in chestnut with triple buttons, I searched the internet for a good deal, some where £240 and the pair that I found were £219 from http://www.spartoo.co.uk, free delivery which is a bonus but I had to wait 6 days before I received the beauties. Now I am not a patient person so 6 days on a pair of boots I just paid £219 for was not the greatest, but nonetheless they arrived and I am happy.

These boots are for the winter, I have my winter boot selection which consist of biker boots, ankle boots, Hunter wellies, snow boots and now my UGG’s. I also have my winter wardrobe and coats, but I shall leave that for another post.

Now I will leave you with a couple of pictures of my ‘Neeeeeew shooooooes!’

Round Up/Pictures.

Oh hai there!

It’s been a while hasn’t it…

I was aiming to make the blogging a bit more regular, but I just didn’t find the time. I have been awfy busy working, going out or just being plain lazy.

Here are a few pictures for your lovely little peepers to enjoy, some of the things I have been up to and some sweet treats. I will be writing up another blog post this week, full of the new clothes and shoes that I have been buying, which since July is A LOT.
