Time is marching on and I am now going to 50th birthday celebrations. Whoa - how did that happen? I remember celebrating friends' 30ths and 40ths but now we are hitting the 50's. Whoa - life slow down please!
The flowers were for the birthday girl and Leeds Market came up trumps again with some lovely hydrangea heads and lilies. Turned out they were the birthday girl's faves! Result.
As we were making a day off it with some shopping thrown in, I changed from the intended tan sandals to my more walking friendly leopard mid heels.
H&M Sandals (not good for shopping)
M&S Leopard Shoes (slightly better for shopping)
And I wore my black Love Sam top.
Love Sam Top, Zara Jeans, H&M Bracelet (in store but sold out online), Mulberry Araline Bag
I call this style of top, a buffet top. An eat all you like kind of top and I have Eileen to thank for alerting me to this when I spotted it on her Instagram feed. I stalked it for a while on Shopbop as the sizes kept coming and going and when my size popped up - I pounced but they seem to have a fresh batch of them again and I'm now thinking do I need the white version too??? Hmmm? Anyway, I don't have much for going out in and this is the perfect kind of dressed up dressed down look I feel comfortable in. I think this is much more what I was looking for when I brought home the Kate Moss boho top which I eventually returned.
And it was just as well I wore this buffet top as it meant I had loads of room to squeeze in lovely stuff like salted caramel hot chocolate, banana loaf, chocolate croissant and scone and cream (shared of course).
And a small champagne cream tea à la Harvey Nicks.
