Sunday

So Called Summer

We have a new home. It seemed like we had been waiting forever and would never get there, but we're finally in (thank you to Chestertons in Hampstead for being the most proactive and useful estate agents I've ever come across). I say "we" have moved in, the boy had cleverly picked this weekend to go on a 3 day stag do in France... So having picked up the keys to the new place (all over on Snapchat if you fancy: annaelerihart) Lindsey and I put on some heels and went to the pub for a celebratory beer...

The weather has been a bit off recently. We had a glimpse of summer and just when we'd got ourselves ready for it, it went. My jeans have been really handy for the stop-start sun... They're my favourite fit from Topshop; the mom jean that you already know I live in. When the brand asked me to pick out some of my favourite summer transition pieces they really stood out as they're a bit more interesting that plain jeans, yet aren't overly "in your face" patterned... Get them here. I bought some lovely little white vests to go with them, which it was a bit too chilly to shoot but will be making an appearance soon. (NB - buy your regular size and take the pain of the first couple of hours of them being too tight, they stretch...).

Instead, I wore my gorgeous Iris and Ink top, here. This has been in the drawer for a few weeks and I'd been waiting for a chance to wear it. It's a wool fabric so super handy for those weird warmer days that suddenly get cooler, and the cut off shoulder is surprisingly really flattering. I'm not a fan of my upper arms but actually felt really confident in it, maybe it's the navy colour (it does come in white for any of you annoying people with perfect limbs, here). You already know how much of a fan of Iris and Ink I am (The OutNet's own brand) and expect much more to appear on the blog as I've just shortlisted my summer haul...

The shoes... ahhh the shoes. My beautiful Chloe pumps here. I'm so pleased with these, and so glad I got them in red as my inner-neutral self really wanted the taupe coloured ones. They're perfect for a little bit of a statement... I've found some high street similars here and here in black and white for £20 so I bought those as well so I have the best of both worlds!  As a note, they come up small. I am always a size 4, as these are, and after one wear the suede stretches a little so I needed an insole... So if you are treating yourself, go a size down.

Last but not least, my hair. I went to Sassoon Salons last month and has the best time sorting out my locks. I've been going to the salon for three years now and if you look back on photos of me pre-Sassoon it really was a sorry tale. My hair is now so much thicker, the colour is so much better for my skin tone, and the cut is just... Good. Also, I love the coffee there, and the team are so lovely that it feels like home as soon as I walk in... I need to leave you now as am off to a barbecue with my girlfriends, in the typically gloomy London weather. Happy Sunday!
