I’m still trying to take it easy after a mid-week relapse, or should I say a sudden decline in my health, something I can only seem to attribute to the fast-paced nature of the last couple of weeks. Having talked about baking bread every week for the better part of the last six months, I finally made an effort to bake a loaf, something which I had been told was almost foolproof. Clearly the key word I should have been paying attention to there was ‘almost’, as the end result was rather dense, although thankfully was able to serve its purpose as a canvas for some delicious spreads and french cheeses. Not every effort can turn out a success.

The afternoon, I spent catching up with Nina and her man, drinking coffee down at Customs and finding ourselves wandering through specialty food stores and the inevitable, looking at shoes. Catching up on everything from MBFWA to our matching Karen Walker knitwear to Nina’s newly acquired kitten, it felt like one of those Saturdays when they are at their best, even with the constant downpour of rain.

    There’s something about minis paired with coats that I’ll always just love and the combo looks so good on you! Hope you feel better babe! 🙂

    That coat is total perfection & I am in love with that skirt too, the gold lace is such a nice detail. Hope you are feeling back to yourself now & have caught up on your rest! I’m sure it was worth it though! 🙂

    Oh I love this look! You rock the mini and coat look so well. Very stylish and tasteful. I smiled when I saw the two of you in the Karen Walker beanies. I have one too! And the scarf… I hope you’re on the mend and don’t worry about your first bread experience. Mine was the same but the second time it was remarkably better.

    Oh you look fantastic! That skirt is just divine – gold and black will always be one of my favourite combinations. I’m behind on your lovely posts but I hope that you’re feeling better now xx
