The weather seems to be a little confused at the moment, but that is expected with the typical British Summer! After two or three weeks of lovely sunshine, I welcome the cooler breeze. The rain, however, can piss right off! I started the day in a baby blue smock dress and sandals, but it suddenly became grey and cloudy before I left the house, so it was a more sensible idea to change in to a monochrome outfit which consisted of my trusty skinny jeans, shiny ballet pumps and my new little jacket, which I've been eager to wear! We managed to get these photos done before the rain graced us with it's presence.

I went into Primark for a belt and inevitably came out with a couple of extra things, including this monochrome blazer/jacket with an aztec print. I can't remember how much it cost but they had other patterns and colours available, I might go back and see which other ones suits me. The front of the jacket has a life of it's own though because it doesn't quite sit well, but like with all Primark clothes, you can forgive the less-that-perfect quality. The material is thin so it makes a nice jacket for Summer, for warm days when the heavens have opened!

My shoes, which are from Freed of London, are a welcome addition to my growing shoe collection. They do need wearing in, but I have never been good at that! Freed are the leading provider of dance shoes and they are expanding their range at the moment. Being on their website brings back memories of dance class, I started going to ballet lessons from the age of three and I gave up when I was fifteen or so. I did all sorts of dancing when I was younger, but giving it all up is something I now regret! I can just about remember my time steps from tap dancing!

I thought I'd turn my hand at being the photographer for once, and as he looked stylish and trendy in his new shirt, I thought I'd snap a pic! Makes a change for him to be in front of the camera! He should start his own blog! What do you guys think?
