Sunny Delight

Hello, what a wonderful Sunny day! and hello to my new followers. Much as I love Phee, its nice to know that someone other than the person I live with (and who therefore is privy to my life first hand) is reading my blog.

Due to a bit of a mix up at work, I ended up enjoying an unexpected day off. After an uneventful excursion into town, in search of a Tangerine cardigan (if you know where I can get one please let me know), and a Green pencil skirt, I wended my way home.

On the way back I popped into a couple of charity shops (hoping to discover the aforementioned items). No joy- but I did find Simone de Beauvoir's The Second Sex for 99p. So I snapped it up and couldn't resist starting to read it on the walk home (bit of an error). I have only read a tiny bit so far but its fascinating. I don't think Im going to read it cover to cover, just dip in and out of it (haha)- I'll let you know how it goes.

If you want to find out a bit more about Simone de Beauvoir go here, and a little bit about The Second Sex here
I wish I still had access to JSTOR, but sadly my student days are a thing of the past and journals are no longer free.  

The weather was so glorious that I decided to take my new book to the park for a picnic.

The Perfect Picnic Package: Sunnies, Good Book, a Blanket, and some Elderflower Cordial. 
(I was going to go for Cider, but seeing as I was picnicking alone thought that might be a tad on the alcoholic side).

Made some 'friends'
I decided that sun glasses, Red Lippy, and a Silk Scarf
was a touch on the pretentious side, even for Brighton

Just before I go here are a couple of Snaps of me in work attire. We have to wear black but I added coloured tights and a peter pan collar to jazz it up a bit.

The Collar was a birthday gift from Phee, she made a blue one too,
both from some velvet she got from her grandfather's tailors shop.
Apologies for the 'saultry' face.
 I'm getting fed up of taking photos on my bed but its the only way to get a whole outfit in.


  1. The weather was ridiculously nice today in Brighton! Ah Queens park! Love that park it's quite close to my house so i like to go there a lot xx

  2. I know wasn't it delightful! Im now horribly aware of my pastness though, may have to get friendly with good old Johnson's Holiday Skin...
