Denim and fresh white pumps

I must say I am absolutely loving the weather this weekend – it’s been so warm and full of sunshine and I have spent most of it either in the garden with a good book (oh and there might have been a bit of prosecco) or wandering around nearby Southsea.

I spent most of yesterday at home soaking up the sunshine in the back garden, fussing Henry dog reading my book on Native American Healing (I know, I’m such a geek), having a little mid-afternoon snooze and catching up on Love Island.  It was such a relaxing day and exactly what I needed – but I knew this morning that I wanted to get out and about and go for a bit of a wander rather than lolling around in the garden all day.

I’ve had my eye on some white Superga pumps for what feels like years as I’m always seeing girls looking super stylish wearing skinnies and their classic white shoes.  I bought this denim playsuit from eBay a couple of weeks ago and I knew that my new Supergas would be the perfect comfy trainers to team my playsuit with whilst mooching about Southsea.

My bag was made by my clever Mum from an old grain sack, I wish I was as crafty as her! She’s always making awesome things, and this bag is the perfect beach bag for slinging all your bits and bobs in and taking out for the day.

Today was my ideal summer day out – we went for lunch at Canteen in Portsmouth (which is such an awesome lunch spot and does the best salads, pastries and cakes).  Then we wandered along to Southsea and spent some time listening to jazz at the bandstand and having a bit of a picnic of crisps, iced buns and cider! Of course the day had to be finished off with an ice cream as big as my head – that then melted down my arm and dripped into my sandal.  Maybe it’s just a little bit too hot…
