Taking Care of Business & Yesterday's Finds

One of those really busy days today.  You know the type, appointments galore, messages to run, things to remember to pick up and drop off - all starting off with 'stay and play' at the school.  The kind of day that requires a practical and comfortable outfit.

Yesterday was not quite so busy so I had time to do a wee bit of shopping:-

 Isn't this cute.  I just love sleeveless cardis but for some reason they're seldom to be found.


 I LOVE the Inskpots and what a fab record sleeve.  I want to put it on my wall!

The above bag was from Primark and was reduced to £3.  I don't usually go for snakeskin effect but this had tapestry and was just too cute and too cheap to leave behind.  I love it.  In fact, I think it goes well with today's ensemble:-

Whaddya think?

Top - Tesco
Cardi - M&S
Skirt - Primark
Bag - charity shop
Necklace - Ebay
Cupcake badge -gift
Shoes - Dorothy Perkins via Ebay

  6. Hi - thanks for the follow, I am catching up with my blogging and now following back. Lovely outfit, too good for stay and play. Whenever I wear my fun fur through the playground I get attacked by children rubbing their snotty little faces all over it so I've stuck to jeans for nursery play sessions!
