Sunny Sunday

So dear followers, the weather was amazing today! Really feels like the start of the holidays now! Hubby and I had a lovely lazy morning and then we decided to have a day trip to a beautiful castle called Hever Castle - I have not visited since I was a child so it was lovely to wander around and relax, taking in all the history and the events going on (jousting, archery and live music - we picked a good day to go!) We had a picnic lunch that hubby had prepared - he popped out this morning for fresh bread and meats, cheese, quiches and other bits and pieces and prepared it all while I got ready, so sweet, love him : )

I decided to wear a nice relaxed outfit in light shades so I would stay cool in the sun:




I decided to wear my cream coloured Marc Jacobs shorts - I love the tailored look of these, the tiny pinstripe throughout at the button detail down both sides. Plus they are excellent quality as you would expect from Mr Jacobs!! I wore a white vest top from Armani Exchange and a light blue H & M short sleeved shirt over the top that I tucked into the shorts. I bought the shirt the other day and I love the cute roll up sleeves and the tortoiseshell buttons. To finish, I wore my new Topshop pumps , my two new gold necklaces, my new gold ring, my diamond studs, my D & G sunnies and a vintage saddle bag that belongs to my mum! She has had it for years and I love it : )





My little vintage saddle bag and gold ring. In the picture above you can see my Claireabella bag that I blogged about here. I made hubby carry this bag all day lol, he looked so cute with it on his shoulder ; )


My little gold necklaces from Topshop. So cute and a nice finishing touch.




Such a lovely relaxing day, hope you all had amazing weekends too xoxo
