Casual stripes and all stars

This is the kind of casual outfit I feel very comfortable in. I am in love with striped tee shirts, Zara have a fantastic selection at the moment. I am gradually buying them in different colours and they have a French feel about them too. 

It was my very first outing for my Converse trainers today. I was a little excited as I have been after a pair for quite a while! The bonus was getting a size smaller, as this type of shoe can make my feet look like boats! But these are perfect!

I wore this outfit to buy flowers from the market in our town. If you get up early enough, you can get beautiful flowers for next to nothing. I was a little late in the day when I went this week but I still managed to get eight bunches of carnations for five pounds!!

 In my garden arranging the flowers.

The finished product, not bad for a knock down price!

  2. i love stripes but worry they make me look wide! bargain flowers, im impressed. im sure we had the jug on the right at our wedding party?

    1. I used to worry about that too but I feel comfortable in them now. I've even bought myself a striped dress! I love these types of jugs, I have to stop myself buying them! :)
