The wind would blow with rain and snow

I wanted to post a couple of outfits from Friday but I'm going to have to apologise in advance as, as the photo of the outfit I wore to work was taken at the very beginning of the day and the outfit I wore to dinner at the very end, I'm afraid the light is not great in either.  One of those 'looks fine on the camera, looks terrible on the computer screen' situations I seem to find myself in with outfit pretty much all of the time! I wish I could work out a way to improve them.  Ho hum.

shirt: ebay | skirt: zara | cardigan: primark | belt and necklace: h&m | shoes: aldo


Anyway - I wore this outfit to the office on Friday.  Shirts/t-shirts and high-waisted skirts with a waist belt are fairly standard fare for my office outfits; I feel they're a good smart/casual mix and high waisted skirts are a flattering shape for me.  You may remember the H&M necklace from my last post - I was desperate to wear it to work as soon as I'd bought it but I'm still not 100% sure that under a standard shirt collar is the best way to wear it.  How would you wear it? 

When I got home from work on Friday we had to get on the road as soon as possible as we were going to Weymouth for the weekend.  Unfortunately there was a somewhat unplanned element to our arrival home as there was a very poorly, skinny, scared cat on our neighbour's drive (not their cat) and we decided to call the RSPCA so that they could get it and look after it.  We gave it some food and water and they collected it whilst we were away.  I think Tom had visions of us setting up a sort of animal hospital and we were both a bit sad to have to leave it behind.  Does anyone remember the dove we looked after about a year and a half ago? 


When we got to Weymouth I quickly got changed into this outfit to go out for dinner and drinks with some friends.  It's a shame the light is not great as I love these new leggings - they are these leather panel leggings from Missguided [£11.99].  I got them last week and I love them; they're ideal for smartening up an evening outfit.
blazer: primark | t-shirt: topshop | leggings: missguided | boots: boohoo | necklace: primark

We went to a place called The Stables in Weymouth Harbour as we'd been there before for a drink but wanted to try their food.  They sell pizzas, pies and cider - lots of cider.  I tried their 'cider tasting board' which was £7.50 and means you can try five of their most popular varieties.  The Lyme Bay was my favourite.  I had a blue cheese, potato and onion pizza but it was pretty underwhelming so it was lucky the cider was so good!



On Saturday we walked the dog along the beach and then went to see Avengers Assemble.  It was pretty good though perhaps not 'THE BEST FILM EVURRR' like some people are saying.  It was a good easy watch though and we raided Tesco's before and took in a whole picnic of snacks which made it infinitely better.

Today my plan was to get all the gardening done I've been meaning to do for ages (I have a stack of seeds about half my height that need planting) but sadly it is absolutely pouring down again so that seems off the cards.  We have an online food delivery coming later and I am currently doing less Jenny Craig every week to prepare for coming off it permanently so I think I'm going to nose through my River Cottage Veg book (£14 on Amazon - bargain!) and dream of the yummy meals we have planned this week.  Would you ladies be interested in me posting recipes up here or is that not really your thing? In the last couple of weeks I've made falafel, a yummy frittata, coca cola chicken and whoopie pies and this week I have lots more lined up so if you like recipes (and photos of food) I'd be happy to oblige!  

Hope you're all having a more exciting Bank Holiday than me, boo to the rain!

    1. I know exactly what you mean! It's where my boyfriend's from so we usually avoid the more tourist-y places! The River Cottage Veg book is brilliant isn't it, I want to make everything in it! X

  3. Photos of food and recipes yes please! Sorry to hear your gardeningplan has been ruined,I hope you have a relaxing day nonetheless!I like the necklace with the second outfit!I too struggle to find a way for them to fit in!I wonder if a 3/4 sleeved striped top or something might work. I totally agree with you about Avengers,not groundbreaking but worth watching. Xxx

    1. You might me right, it might look nice with a long sleeved Breton top perhaps? I will try! Going out for lunch instead of gardening now but hoping the sun puts his hat on so I can do some later! X

  5. Like I enabled you to spend in the h&m sale, you enabled me to buy that h&m collar necklace! I bought it Saturday - love it. I think I'll be wearing it over high necked jumpers mainly.
    Love both your outfits, especially the second one. The colour of the blazer is a beaut, and I love those leggings! Added them to my wishlist.
    And YES - post recipes! I would be interested in seeing any veggie-friendly ones especially. I love falafel. x

    1. Haha, we are double enablers then! The leggings are really lovely and good value for £11.99, definitely worth a buy! The falafel recipe was from Lyzi from Being Little's blog, I just added some feta cheese and it was really yummy. I make lots of veggie foods so I will definitely share those recipes! :) X

  8. I'd love to see recipes and food pictures, coca cola chicken sounds interesting. I loved the Avengers movie, but that might be because of my nerdy ways :P

    1. Coca cola chicken is awesome, it makes a sort of barbecue-y sauce? I was always more of a DC comics girl but I did really enjoy the movie, I'd just say it was more of a 7 rather than the 8.8 IMDB rated it! X

  9. that poor cat! I wonder if the rspca will let you know what happened with it/if it found its owners again? poor thing.
    That cider tasting board looks amazing!! x

    1. We phoned up the RSPCA a couple of times to try and find out what happened to the cat but they never called us back. I just hope someone comes forward to look after him. The cider tasting board was great, proper Westcountry cider! :) X

  10. Oh Rosie Rosie (Im not sure what it is, but whenever I say your name I have the desire to say it twice!) you look stunning in both outfits, I've been thinking of getting those panel leggings for ages, but thought they might be ridiculously long on me!How well do they fit you length wise? Did I tell you I planted my sweet peas a couple of weekends ago?! They are my absolute favourite! And my Mum has been caring for them during the week and they're sat inside on the kitchen window sill and when I came home this weekend most had all sprouted through! :D x

    1. Oh Laura Laura! You lovely thing, thankyou for your kind words! The leather leggings are actually not that long, they bunch a tiny bit on my ankles but they definitely wouldn't be too long on you I think. Ooh exciting about the sweet peas! Sweet peas are gorgeous, I have a few growing here and there; they are getting a bit tall and flopping over now though so I think I might have to plant them out and give them something to climb up!

I love your blog, it's my favorite x

  16. Looking rather fabulous madam, love both outfits for both occasions. Re: the necklace, I think I'd try it over a crew neck t-shirt or jumper as the centre piece perhaps?

  19. Coca cola chicken?! :o That intrigues me greatly... I made a curry with sausagages recently, a bit unusual but really nice! And I'm glad the RSPCA took the cat, poor little thing. When I was very small, my mum found a cat in a rubbish bin at her work, and it ended up living with us until I was 13. It just makes me so sad when people don't look after their pets :( I'll probably end up with half a rescue centre of them one day! x

  23. Love both these outfits, particularly the skirt in the first picture! The cider board looks awesome, and what a good idea to sell a sample board to save you wasting money on a drink you might not like!
    What is coca cola chicken? I'd be very interested to see that recipe! Xo
