Trail Blazer

Howdy peeps, grey and dismal oop norf, how about you? Rewind back to Sunday and its a very different story, it was Father's Day here in the UK (I'm not sure about the US as I know your Mother's Day falls different to ours) I took my two father folk out for lunch. My actual dad and the father of my child the rather lovely hubs Michael.


We visited our local sushi restaurant, somewhere Michael and I love, and I thought it would be an experience for my folks and for Poppy.


The guys at Curvissa had sent me this gorgeous striped blazer the day before actually so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to road test it. A relaxed lunch and a sunny-ish day.

I'd been lusting after this blazer for ages so I was really chuffed when I was sent it. It's totally not what I expected, I thought it would be a structured jacket made from a thick canvas type material, but it is in fact a heavy jersey which for me is actually a million times better. It's more comfortable and versatile in this fabric.

I teamed it with a simple white vest and rolled up jeans. A kind of look I keep repeating (sorry for being a clothes bore) but it really is so easy to wear! I accessorised with a vintage handbag and leopard print sandals.

We had a really lovely lunch, so tasty and the old fogies enjoyed trying something a bit different! And finally Michael caught me off guard. A rare laughing shot... See I do smile sometimes!

  7. I've never worn roll-up jeans (do they need to be slim legged for that I've only ever bought bootcut?) I would like to but my legs are so pale I feel a little self conscious!
