MMM {weekend} Topshop + Accessorize + Marni

I am SWEATING. It has been hot this week and so NOT the right time to wear a black dress on appointments in the West End. Anyway, this weekend my lovely in-laws have got the kids, so we are planning a date night and a couple of lies-in. Although you know I will be wide awake at 6am as per.

WEARING….

What? You mean the kids will be at their grandparents for TWO WHOLE DAYS?!

I wore my favourite & Other Stories dress to work this week and went for a colour mash up with a red Jaeger bag plus accessories from new online brand Accessoryo. The J Crew-esque earrings cost £12.99 and the bright yellow shades were £8.95. I KNOW.

 

CHECKING OUT…

It was the Selfridges Christmas in July event on Wednesday, which was personalisation heaven. They were showing off the wares that’ll be around for Xmas (I know, wanted EVERYTHING) which all had a gold or personalised theme. And we were lucky enough to be able to experience http://www.aldaorg.net some of the brands and services ourselves. One idea for Christmas presents was from art brand Art You Grew Up With, who are doing limited edition personalised Mr Men and Little Miss prints through Selfridges.  Check out their site for details of when they will be starting the service.

 

COLOURING IN…

Also spotted at the event were these fab kids pyjamas by Pixie Dixie – which you could paint yourself.

It’s a trend, I’m telling you – Marks & Spencer sent the kids these amazing Colour Your Own Pyjamas this week. I know I’ll have to fight every stay-within-the-lines colouring gene in my body when they get their hands on them.

My lovely friend Louise treated me to the Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Tea at The Sanderson hotel which was UH-MAZING. There were even little bottles saying ‘drink me.’ And no we didn’t manage all this. But we gave it a good go.

    Love the outfit. Same problem last weekend in a black jumpsuit – nearly combusted! TWO days no kids – ENJOY! My three still running wild!

      Thank you Julia! I wore my jumpsuit out last weekend too and it was TOO HOT. Not that we should complain!

    Erica, love these posts. You always look so cool. I’m a stay at home mum to two lovely boys aged 6 and 5 and have totally lost my fashion mojo. No idea what to wear as my body has changed since pregnancy, probably due to all the bags of Minstrels eaten to get me through the day when very sleep deprived! I know you shouldn’t dress for other people but often wonder what’s the point – life very different to my days working in a design studio.

    I find your outfit posts inspiring 🙂 Hope you have a lovely child free weekend! Myself and my husband have had two nights out together in six years – so wing that needs to be rectified!! Xx

      Thank you Emma! The changing body / tiredness thing is a killer…I honestly believe red lipstick and a bright coloured dress gets you through most bad days! Thank you for your lovely words (and yes you do need a night/weekend off- do it, book the in-laws/parents now!) xx
