bringing style into bloom

At the weekend we took a little trip to explore the lovely Weston Park which just happens to be the first park in Sheffield. It wasn't a very warm day so I thought this floral blouse was perfect with its long sleeves. 

It was a blouse I had seen in River Island but didn't buy. I didn't mention I had seen it to Steve but he must know me very well as there it was all nicely wrapped up as part of my birthday present. 

It has a great versatility to it; perfect for all the seasons. I chose to wear it today with jeans I got for my birthday and my old faithful brogues. 

I apologise for the frizzy hair! Damp air never does it much good!

On a lovely day this would be a perfect place to sit and while away an afternoon with a picnic. Even though it was cold, there were lots of people walking round with ice creams like it was the done thing to do.

You can get married in the bandstand and I can definitely see the appeal. It has a real vintage feel and with good weather it would be magical. 

The park has been restored beautifully with gorgeous planting, quiet seating areas and a museum to wander around that is very hands on for children. Definitely a place I want to visit again when it is a bit warmer!

Enjoy the rest of your week lovelies.

What I wore:
River Island Cream Floral Print Shirt
River Island Boyfriend Jeans
H&M satchel bag - wardrobe
Urban Outfitters brogues - wardrobe
Topshop sunglasses - wardrobe

  4. You look lovely communing with the ducks in Weston Park! Last time I was there, surveying the duck pond, a man crossed the bridge to other side and promptly had a wee against a tree!
