Just a casual shorts and singlet outfit for Friday! We didn't really get up to much. We relaxed and enjoyed the pool, and spent some time at home as a family. I made a start on some of the books I got for Christmas too - hopefully I'll be able to go back to work having finished at least one book (I currently have 3 on the go!).

Bag: gifted Typo neon pink studded case worn as clutch

I really like pink and blue together, so went with all pink accessories today!

This morning DH and I had to brave the shops after we had a minor miscommunication. We have a party coming up, and we were each under the impression that the other had organised the gift, when neither of us had. It wasn't as busy at the stores as I thought it would be, although there are certainly a lot of sales around. We ended up sticking to just getting what we needed, having lunch and getting home again. The pool was calling so I will have to spend my Christmas gift cards another time ;)

Have you shopped the post-Christmas sales in person yet?

Last worn: pink printed sunglassesSuboo stripe maxi dress, pink skinny belt, Balenciaga studded sandals, neon pink studded clutch.

  6. First bag is perfect, especially the color!

  7. I love those red sandals! Great post!


  8. I have not been into a store for post Christmas sale shopping yet however I did buy a faux fur coat from ASOS sale as well as two mid rings from BaubleBar yesterday. I have not actually spent much money at all this holiday season lol There just has not been much "stuff" I feel like I really need at the moment!
    I love your long maxi dress. The necklace from your bestie is gorgeous and you are making me missing summer LOADS!!

    1. Sounds like you've been really good in the sales! :) I still have some unspent gift cards, but I'm waiting until the stores get less busy before I indulge ;)

  9. I love this casual and sunny look! Your shoes are so cute!

  10. Stripes long dress is absolutely cool!

  11. OH! That pink bag!!! Love it so much! Amazing.

  12. That pink bag is so fun!!! I have not gone to the malls post Christmas but have ordered a bunch on things online. What books are you reading? If they are good, please pass the names along. I am always on the hunt for new books to read.


    1. What kind of books do you like to read? I'm in the middle of a novel, a fashion book and a book by my pastor. Quite a mix! :)

  13. I love your bags especially the gorgeous pink. I was brave enough to go to the shops a couple of days ago because its only a short walk from home. But it was a big mistake because it was way too busy and very overrated (although I did come home with one amazing pair of shoes so it was not all negative).

  14. Love the stripes paired with the bright pink!

  15. Ok, so I went outside today in wellies, a scarf, hat and gloves.

    This is SO not fair.

    But you look lovely!

    Hmm maybe...

  16. This post really makes me miss summer. I really love the purply top you are wearing!! And the dog is so ADORABLE! <3 <3

    Happy holidays!

I haven't shopped any post-Christmas sales. HAHA I've been quiet. I have 3 books to read as well. Lately, I haven't been in the mood to read. LOL

    1. I've been pretty good with the sales too, although I'm sure I'll be itching to use my gift cards before January is over, haha!
      Hope you manage to get back to reading soon! :)
