A Wedding Weekend in Charlotte

Just a quick weekend update as I am currently nursing 2 sick children at home! One with a head cold and one with a sore tummy – both glued to Phineas and Ferb. I feel like I am stuck in Groundhog Day. My children seem to be able to watch the same episode over and over and find it equally hilarious each time.

My weekend in Charlotte was fabulous. I left on my own on Friday for the Bachelorette/shower party and then my Husband arrived on Saturday. It was brutally cold but enough alcohol was imbibed and enough laughter had to keep the blood warm and flowing! The party on the Friday evening was held at the Charlotte City Club and it was great fun to catch up with the Bride-to-be and old and new friends.

I wore my Stuart Weitzman Highland boots and my AllSaints Hafbec knitted dress, with the Warehouse Teddy coat for warmth. A comfortable outfit that I felt warm and stylish in. The lipstick is NARS Palais Royale lip pencil.

Thankfully we had a limo provided – I felt like a true Real Housewife in our stretch Hummer!

I was super excited on Saturday for the arrival of my Husband. The last time we had a night away together without the kids was for my 40th 3 years ago! This was long overdue! I wore my AllSaints Haff sweater, Theory leather leggings (mine are midnight blue but TheOutnet.com also has them in black now!) and Vince Claire heels in woodsmoke. The lipstick is Mac Snow Orchid. My Husband delivered a new jacket for me too! The Zara fur in charcoal – I adore it – a perfect color! It fits small and I have the Large.

While I remember – leather pants/leggings – you think you would need to professional dry clean them right? Wrong. I found this article on Pinterest and took a leap of faith with my Theory pants the other night. I doused them under the tap with warm water, inside out, then threw them in the tumble dryer. I swear they came out perfect and I get to save a fortune on dry cleaning bills!

So now it’s back to reality with a thud – we’re now cycling through Johnny Test episodes…

 

Happy Birthday!

I love my friends but they sure can be a bad influence. Sue has introduced me to Everlane. Ironic as they don’t ship to the UK yet (except via me for Sue!). They are online only, with plans to ship internationally next year, and because they have no bricks and mortar their focus is on cutting costs for the consumer while providing incredible quality – which they do. I am a huge fan of their sweatshirts and cashmere.

Their short sleeve sweatshirt in particular is fabulous – a great boxy cut – and I think quite generous in size. They claim a medium is a US 4-6 but mediums fit me great I am definitely a US 8 on top. It comes in grey, black, navy and vanilla.

Their cashmere is divine and a great price. I love their slouchy v-neck and now have 2 of them – the black will be on it’s way to me soon I hope! It’s beautifully cut with a longer back and plenty of drape. Again I am in a medium.
