WHEN: Thursday, July 14th, 2011
WHERE: A walk in the sun and out to lunch
WITH: Dress (River Island sale), sunglasses (Target), belt (my mum’s)
So, I bought the apple print version of that River Island dress I already have in two other prints. Yup, I now have the full set. It was on sale, OK? And… I was worried that the other two dresses would be lonely. Ahem.
Anyway, I know I promised not to inundate you with Shoe Challenge posts now that I’m all up to date again after my holiday, but this was the weather forecast when I woke up yesterday morning:
Now, I know those of you lucky enough to live in warmer climates will laugh at this, but 21 degrees counts as a heatwave here in Scotland, and if that forecast is anything to go by, yesterday was actually the last time we’re going to see the sun, EVER. Well, until Wednesday, at least. I knew that if I wanted to save any more summer shoes this week, I had only a very brief window of opportunity to do it, so I sprung into action, like the shoeperhero I am.
Springing into shoe saving action has been harder than usual for me lately, because I’ve been finding it hard to keep track of which shoes I’ve saved and which shoes are still at risk. Earlier this week, for instance, I spent a bit of time thinking about what I could wear with a particular pair of shoes… only to realise that I’ve already saved them. The shoes I’m wearing in these photos, meanwhile, almost didn’t get saved at all, because I was convinced I’d already worn them this year. Whoops. Good job I have my archives to go through and check these things!
As it was such a lovely day, we took Rubin for a quick run in the local country park, and then took ourselves off for a late lunch/early dinner (A “linner”? Is that what you’d call that? I guess if breakfast/lunch is brunch then lunch/dinner must be “linner”…) at a local restaurant. One of my favourite things about being self employed is the fact that you can take advantage of the odd sunny day when it comes along: yesterday felt a little bit like being on holiday again, which was lovely. Especially given that we’re going to have to build ourselves an Ark next week if my phone’s weather app is to be believed.
And, of course, another pair of shoes got to be saved…
