Vintage Style With A Modern Twist…

Good morning everyone 🙂

I am up with the birds tweeting this morning and ready to go!!

You know when you have so much to do and do not know where to start? well, today is that day!!

I wore this outfit on a rainy day at the weekend.

We had a few hours spare so went to Meadowhall shopping centre in Sheffield.

You know when you don’t have money and see lots of things you want to buy? then when you have birthday money, burning a hole in your pocket but can not spend it?

Well, that is what kind of day I had.

And to top things off I tried to buy a few pretty silver rings from a well-known jewellery shop the day after. Another location but the staff was too busy chatting with friends to serve me, even though I had money in my hand!! So I had to walk out empty handed.

So I still have my birthday money to spend.

Now torn; new rings or new shoes?

I wore this dress on Saturday, as my husband mention it in a conversation.

He spotted a picture on Facebook and said-

“I’ve not seen you wear this dress in a while”

“You look lovely in this”

So off I toddled upstairs and went to pop it one.

Outfit~
Scarf ~ Primark {new love this, can you see the little pink flamingos?}
Vintage style dress ~ c/o Sainsburys {about a year and half ago}
Shoes ~ Converse

Remember me saying I have so much to do today want to get done.


Well here goes~

Get children up, feed, lunch boxes done, to school.

Paint the downstairs toilet.

Gloss the coat rack.

Gloss the shoe rack.

Paint ceiling.

Paint the hallway.

Gloss the hallway.

Paint ceiling.

Get 2 more loads of washing done.

Get rest yesterday’s washing dry {did 5 loads as its been raining a week}.

Go shopping { 3 miles walk, round trip } to buy some cool bits for downstairs toilet {wash basket, accessories ect}.

Have a look for something to spend my birthday money on.

Catch up with blog comments.

Build a trampoline.

Go a run.

Make dinner for everyone.

Visit parents.

Do an outfit post.

Do 99% of this list!

And all with cold water, mind you. 

Having to boil the kettle every time we want some hot water.

As the boiler man is still so called mending my boiler, charging me lots of money 4 weeks after I phoned him.

So hopeful he will arrive with a part he has been waiting 2 weeks for today too!?!

I can but hope.

Now to pop my old clothes on and start on the decorating…

Think I will pass on posting photos of these, though, haha…

Have a good day 🙂

What are your plans today?

We all should be outside enjoying the sunshine really, it is beautiful outside today…

    I love how you mix and matched the fun scarf and the dress patterns, I want to wear scarf more often, but have hard time matching them to the outfit! BTW, the water heater in our house broke this week. We got it replaced, but it was not fun taking cold showers for 2 days!

    I live near you- I go to Meadowhall too occasionally but I prefer it midweek when it's quieter! Shame that you had bad service in a store! The photo effects you used in the post look great!
