The legs are out.

We had an amazing week at the beach and I feel fabulously refreshed.  All that sunshine and vitamin D really does work wonders!  We did struggle a little this morning though, to get back into our routine.  Even the hour difference between Georgia and Alabama can make a real impact on schedules!

Spring has well and truly sprung here in Atlanta while we have been gone.  There is a dusting of green pollen everywhere and my garden currently looks like the 13th green at Augusta with all the azaleas in bloom.

Now it’s back to work and school for us this week.  We don’t get Easter off here – separation of Church and State and all that…but that doesn’t stop me going all out with an Easter roast with friends this weekend.  All I have to worry about for now is choosing lamb or pork?

While I was gone my gorgeous playsuit from M&S arrived.  I cannot tell you how much I love it.  This is a UK 12 and it is perfect.  The ties at the shoulders mean you can adjust it for your boobs as necessary and the shorts are the perfect length – not indecent by any means.  I’m certain this is going to be my go to evening outfit in Spain this summer worn with sandals.

Boots – Rag & Bone Newbury canvas // Playsuit – Marks and Spencer

My Essie Resort Fling nail polish even matches the print perfectly – completely unintentionally:)


Today I’m flaunting my tanned legs in my AllSaints dress that I bought back at Christmas in the sale.  It’s the perfect weight for spring here.

    I am cheering myself up buying summery things and thinking about holidays. You look like you had a fantastic time and Happy Easter. The cute playsuit will be great this summer. xx

      I wish it was called something other than a playsuit though – still makes me think of babygrows! xx

      Oh you sweetheart – I am trying to get my running mojo back – honestly without a regular run I’d be enormous with my love of food and wine! Just walked the dog 4 miles too so I am trying ready for the summer! x

      It’s chucking it down now but warm too so it’s very confusing as to what to wear – just walked the dog in wellies and running shorts! x

      The weather looked fab there this weekend no? Though it is Easter weekend this week so it could snow there too! xx

    You’re definitely glowing from all that Vit D – speaks volumes for how good all that sun is. And the playsuit has such a really pretty but boho vibe about it. I’m looking for a playsuit – will be taking a closer look at this one!

    Yay!! Joanna it looks gorgeous – tres Boho/Ibiza – love it!

    Lovely pick and like you I would have styled it with little light coloured or tan ankle boots.

    Not that I want to be accused of encouraging you further, but did you spot the little pale pink Limited Edition ankle boots as well 😉
