It was Ben's birthday yesterday. My boy is now 7. He comes up to my shoulders but that's not hard when you're a shortbum like me. We were taking him out for something to eat in one of those out of town places where the parking is free and the food is horrid.
I started like this with white sneakers and turn ups and a WOC.
Mango coat, Zara shirt, Jack Wills jeans, Primark sneakers.
Hobbs NW3 Hazel bag.
A WOC is a Wallet ON Chain. I'd never heard of this expression till a few weeks ago when Marlene (Bag Guru Extraordinaire) was talking about them and the initials fell in to place. Anyway, this is my little WOC - the Hobbs NW3 Hazel bag (A/W 2012). It's a little cutie and it's also a mare. It's a little cutie in that it is a lovely shade of plum and it is a mare because the zip is designed so badly (way too long) and you have to "tuck it away" using a little press stud they ingeniously thought of. However, I have to say it would have been more ingenious to have put on a shorter zip. This little bag was an Ebay score so I didn't pay huge pennies for it and for that reason I can live with this little aberation. That aside, I like it as the little plum bag looks quite fresh and almost dainty compared to the usual monster bags that I heave around daily.
Anyway, my feet were cold and I was cold so I changed to boots .....
Office Namesake Boots
... which were a little bit warmer but then I went off and sneaked a bit of George's chocolate Easter bunny and a piece dropped on my shirt and melted down the front which I didn't notice till 5 mins before I was heading out of the door. That will teach me for being a greedy guts!
One shirt soaking in the sink and a change for something even warmer ...
Uniqlo Cashmere jumper, Oasis Faux Fur Gilet, M&S Altered Coat
.... and I was finally out of the door.
The horrid meal from the dreadful fake Italian/American eating place was compensated by the fact that the Krispy Kreme shop was just around the corner.
Hands off the original glazed. They're mine!
Hope you're all having a lovely Easter so far.
