Daily Outfit






Dress - Laura Lee for Top Shop (from Ebay), Cardigan - Body, Monkey Pin - Gift from Mum, Earrings- vintage, thrift shop find, Fishnets - Levante, Embroidered Shoes - Novo.



Mothers day began with a lovely breakfast cooked by my wonderful Man and styled by Miss 3. So with some black coffee and pancakes with cream and sprinkles, the day began. It was a tad chilly, so the new summer dress needed a little assistance to cope with the 16 degree weather. It was out with the cashmere cardi and some fishnets to dress things up a bit. I was exceedingly pleased that my latest Ebay dress fit like a glove, these things can be a bit dodgey, so to have a perfect fit can make your day.

The shoes I have had for ages, probably about 5 years, but I love them to death. I discovered after falling in love with them and taking them straight home, that they are a knock off of some designer pair. I have no idea which. They just have the perfect height heel to be comfortable all day, and a lovely pointed toe that isn't at all pinchy. The embroidery is my absolute favorite though. I adore coloured shoes and this was a wonderful way to have a neutral pair, that is still quite colourful without being overwhelming. The monkey pin, my Mum gave me on my last birthday as an homage to Shanghai Lil and her Fez wearing Monkey.







So after an indulgent day of much seafood and wine, it was back off to the gym for Mama this morning. Gotta keep the snap in those garters.
