Staycation

#AD - Paid Collaboration with VeryUk

Gosh, haven't we been spoilt with the lovely weather that descended on us? Were you ready for it? Or more to the point, was your wardrobe ready for it? I was and pretty grateful for a few little choice pieces I picked from Very. Some of these I took on my little jaunt to France the other week.



Gotcha. I'm actually strutting up and down past an old farm building a five minute drive from where I live in Yorkshire but squint a bit and you could pretend that I was strolling past a French gîte. A little imagination is a wonderful thing if you're more likely to have a staycation like me. 😉

Anyway, I pounced on the little Lemon tee when I saw it. It's just a really fun and fresh addition to the wardrobe which looks as good with a satin skirt as it does with a pair of jeans. For evening, the River Island skirt, would be perfect dressed up with some strappy heels which are so current right now but you're most likely to find me wearing it with a pair of pale summer denim jeans.

And whilst I'm pretending to be all French. 


Did I nail it with the pretty blouse, the basket bag complete with baguette which I popped out especially to buy, not from the Boulangerie but from the local Co-op?

Anyway, the Easter Bank Holiday weekend also blessed us with more glorious sun. I was in Wales and got to wear my new Mango dress which I have to say is a really lovely easy piece to wear. Part of what made it so good was the pockets. Pockets are life and basically I spent most of the day with my hands jammed in my pockets like a sulky teenage boy. I love pockets. Pockets should be mandatory on skirts and dresses. I love pockets. Pockets are life. You get the gist.



Come on, honestly, you really would think I was strolling around the French countryside instead of sunny Wales wouldn't you except they probably don't have yellow lines on their roads. Or do they? 

But do you know what? A staycation in the UK is not really a staycation unless you have a day where it's actually poured it down, you froze off your extremities or it's overcast. Case in point.



Normally I throw a pair of Hunter wellies in the back of the car when I head to Wales but given the forecast, I chanced it with taking the Hunter sandals instead. I bet you didn't know Hunter made sandals as well as wellies did you? Well you do now!
