Shopping and a donkey party...

Skirt - River Island (here)
Wedges - Next (here in multi coloured!)
Necklace - New Look
Bracelets - H&M

  So I went shopping this week - can you tell from the sudden appearance of River Island clothes and non charity shop jewellery? ;)  River Island is not somewhere I shop like, ever... but I was looking for some summer clothes and stumbled across their online sale.  Since I had to consign some of my skirts and dresses to the too-short-to-wear-without-tights part of my wardrobe, I was in heaven when this jersey skirt turned out to be fabby (it runs a bit big but with the elastic waist it hardly matters).  And the blouse... I realised this week that I don't seem to suit very bright or pastel coloured clothing, so it's also rather perfect.  And out of 8 items ordered, only 3 got returned!  That must be a new record in my house - shopping without fitting rooms is not something I'm particularly gifted at...

  Anyway, I wore this Saturday night for a farm party at Mother's work to celebrate the birth of their new donkeys.  Everyone else was in horse riding gear and gilets, but what did I care, I felt pretty ;)  They were very cute, and the white one (Mallow) was really funny and kept skipping around and trying to jump on the mummy one.  The other one (George - who knows where the names came from...) just liked being petted.  And I just liked the bread and cheese I was being fed with my beer ;)

Hopefully everyone's having a lovely long weekend off - I'm in doing extra long shifts this week cause we open early on holidays, one is not impressed...



  1. River Island is a shop I do love even if I don't actually own much from there. That skirt is a great length.
    Boo for having to work this weekend :(

  2. Aww, cute little donkeys :)
    Loves the stacked necklaces!

    Gems x

    Fashion, Well Done

  3. I've never brought anything from RI they always seem to pricy! You got some gorgeous pieces though.

    Those donkeys look adorable - how I happily remember school fetes and donkey rides!

  4. I love those donkeys, aren't they gorgeous! I'd never leave your Mother's work if I knew they were there!
    Hope you haven't worked too hard. x

  5. I have such a soft spot for donkeys!

  6. Why not a donkey party :-) maybe next year you can have the 2nd annual donkey party.

  7. Love that skirt, simple outfits are my favourite x x
