Notes From A Weekend

My husband and I got up early on Saturday and had our breakfast in a cafe in the local village before running some errands including scouting menus at our local eateries for our son's 21st on the 14th.
I also picked up a Marks and Spencer skirt at my favourite charity shop for £3.99 which still had the original label on.
 On Saturday evening we cooked a meal for our friends.
Sunday was spent finding new school shoes for my daughter.
Can you believe we actually found a pair of shoes we both liked?
She tried them for sizing at our local Clarks shop and then I came home and ordered tham online as there is a 20% discount at the moment if you add the code "BSTYLE".
With free delivery this took the price down from £34.99 to £ 28.00!
As the shopping trip went so well I had the energy to go for a walk in the woods with my husband and the dog before enjoying a Sunday  roast at mum's.
Tonight I plan to put my feet up, pour a large glass of wine and cuddle up with my husband to watch the final part of The Last Weekend.

  1. This post made me smile, I though it was just my mum and I who could never agree on school shoes! Looking forward to your next capsule wardrobe challenge!

  2. Wow - you had a busy weekend! V envious of your bargain finds...that dress is just gorgeous on you - suits you so well. Wish we had a Joules nearby. Enjoy your week, Avril x

  3. That is a great dress, love it! I have the Last Weekend all recorded, hope its good!

  4. The pink dress is just so beautiful on you. It sounds like your weekend was far more productive than mine has been. It's Labor Day in the states, a time that we take it easy and celebrate/lament the end of summer.

  5. The dress is so pretty and ladylike!

    I really like the shoes you found too. How fun it must be to have a daughter to shop with!!!

  6. You look amazing in sneakers.. i don't know how you do it !
    and i love the Clarks loafers.. that brand is SOOOOO expensive here.
