Double denim again! Love it!!

I’m not usually one to have the same hairstyle several days in a row but I’ve also been loving my (fake) plait hairband and centre parting recently. However, the wind last weekend was unforgiving, as you can see by picture five…! These are not shown in the order that they were taken, they’re kinda backwards. We started with the hat, which kept getting blown away by the wind so I just had to hold it; eventually the sun came out… and we finally got the money shot (first picture)!

My sister bought me the silver bobble necklace for Christmas and I love it; she said she thought it was very ‘me’ (she knows me too well). And while I love to get dressed up in the week for going to work, I do like dressing down just as much at the weekend – though I don’t put any less effort into my outfit even if it’s double denim. I still like to think about accessories, jewellery and what patterned socks to wear.

Dressing up is just meant to be fun, isn’t it?!!

Happy weekend folks!

    It *is* meant to be fun, and you do it so wonderfully Catherine. I am still trying to up my weekend looks, as I tend to get lazy then. Not you! Love those socks, the hat and the double denim.
