Happy Easter all! I am sitting here typing while the loin of pork roasts. I always slip a few slithers of garlic in it so it smells amazing – hhhhmmmm! I was contemplating roasting a leg of lamb – it seems more appropriate at Easter – but I always find the left over pork easier to use up in a Mexican dish later in the week. I’d better get a few more spin sessions in before the bikinis come out for Spring break!:)
I thought rather than cracking open a bottle of red before dinner is ready, I’d update you with some weekend outfits instead.
My son was off from school on Friday for Easter so we headed out to Target for some fun shopping – well kind of – I basically needed to buy more Mini Eggs before they sell out till next year!
I’m not much of a hat wearer, but I fell in love with these Mossimo straw Fedoras. Still not convinced I would ever wear them so they didn’t make it home with me, but I might try them again – they’d be great on the beach!
Jacket – JohnnieB (old) // T-shirt – Forever21 // Jeans – H&M boyfriend jeans // Sneakers – Converse
Later on Friday I was watching the children play while having a little playtime myself – nothing better than a margarita in the sun:)
This bracelet brings me so much joy. It’s an original Susie Ho design and it reminds me of the fantastic time we all had in London on our blogger meet back in February.
MM giggled at me on Saturday morning for being ‘so dressed up’ with no where to go. Well I did take Poppy to her Zumba class so surely that counts? I love this M&S cardigan – it makes a casual outfit feel a little more ‘put together’.
Trousers – Zara // Boots – Isabel Marant Dickers // T-shirt – Forever21 // Cardigan – Marks and Spencer
I also nipped into the Mall later in the day, so obviously I had to take a peek in Zara. I’d fallen in love with this jacket online and, fortuitously, they had my size in store. Would have been silly not to have brought it home, no?
Last night MM and I went out for dinner and drinks to our favorite bar. I normally choose my ‘going out’ attire by selecting the one item I really want to wear and building the outfit around it. Last night I really wanted to wear these Zara trousers. I’ve had them a while and took them all the way to the UK and back without them being worn. It turned into a perfect opportunity to pair them with my white pumps. I LOVE these shoes. Whether you like the outfit or not, it was one of those times where once I was ready I felt great:) I’m convinced the Saturday 8am spin class helps psychologically too!
Shoes – BCBG Generation (currently reduced) // Trousers – Zara // Tank – Express (old) // Jacket – Zara
So Happy Easter all – I’m now off to crack open that bottle of red:)
