This week I am mostly loving:
1. My old beat up Levi denim shorts (still). Now thinking of outfits that I can incorporate them into. Yesterday I vowed it was a necessity to go t-shirt/blouse shopping with them especially in mind. Purchased some cute retro t-shirts in Circa and Glorious.
2. Topshop spring/summer looks, accidentally bought 3 dresses yesterday when I popped into ‘browse’ on Argyle St before dinner with the girls. Had to send the boy back today with one of them, buyers remorse. Also, I know Topshop has never been amazing quality pieces but I am finding a lot of things very see through of late, anyone else finding that? Or maybe I am just becoming old and respectable? Also had a gander at the Dress Up collection that launched yesterday- some pieces looked ok, but mostly same old & not so ‘statement making’ as the tagline states.
3.The Sopranos. Old school I know. The boy and I have worked our way through season 1 and started 2 in the past week. I tend to get a little addicted to a box set & then drop it like a teenage crush when something better comes along.
4. Lauren Laverne on 6 Music. Firstly & rather bashfully must admit I am not a big radio fan, I like to hear the music I like & don’t have the patience to sit through other songs while I wait. Secondly I use Spotify most days (rather bewildered with where I am to get my music fix after their news yesterday). Thirdly I always thought 6music was a bit too serious for my random musical whims. However I was pleasantly suprised when I tuned into Lauren’s show- not too much chit chat, no jingles and mostly music that I can tolerate. Been starting the working day with the hummings of Otis Redding, She & Him and Everything Everything.
5.White Toblerone. Purchased in the airport by the boy it made my week back at work a little bit easier to take. Why does the big white Toblerone taste better?
