But only just! I spent the day today celebrating my sister’s 39th birthday. We left early, abandoning our children, and ran for it to the bright lights of Manchester. What followed was one of the best days of sibling bonding I’ve ever had. I wish I could spend days like this every week with my sister.
After a mooch around the shops, where I bagged a couple of great deals in the Mango sale, we headed to Harvey Nicks for a fabulously debauch lunch – minimal food, copious prosecco and abundant conversation. I felt like I was on an episode of Long Lost Family – we spilled so much, talked so much, laughed so much and cried a little. It’s amazing what growing up can do for a relationship.
Lovely Louise – Happy 39th!:
My new pants – fabulously comfortable:
In between bottles of wine we dashed into Zara where I fell in love with this jacket – I will be ordering it on my return. It’s just the most perfect lightweight jacket – it fit like a glove.
We also managed to buy half of the Marks and Spencer’s shoe department. Lordy I might need a new suitcase again.
I first saw these on gorgeous Avril and I couldn’t resist the nude too.
Then these are the first ever strap sandal I have ever owned! Normally I can’t get my toes to stay put beneath the strap and I end up with all sorts of nasty welts and blisters – but these are just SO comfortable. My first ever non-thong sandals. I promise – far nicer on – no Jesus sandal about these! My sister confirmed they were cute and not frumpy – I trust her, you should too.
Here are Louise’s – very classy indeed and a great wearable height. I’m so impressed with M&Ss shoe collection – thank goodness they do free shipping to the US now!
My outfit today (it was warm and sunny!):
Dress – T-shirt dress James Perse (old) // Jacket – Zara (old) // Shoes – Isabel Marant Bobby Sneakers // Scarf – J.Crew (old)
Off to bed now ready to head to Leeds! That’ll be a fun story for you:)
