We had a fabulous, sunny weekend to welcome the first day of Spring. On Sunday, it was Fathers' Day here in the Antipodes. As it was so beautiful, we had a picnic in a nearby park.
There were about 15 of us, plenty of fathers and lots of children.
We kept the food simple, with plenty of Prosecco and beer to drink.
The children made Joe cards, and bought him some Muuto cups to match his teapot. Muuto is a Danish company that makes lovely functional homewares.
On Saturday night, we went for a very early dinner, then went to our local cinema to see a film.
We had planned to see 'What Maisie Knew' but we got there too late and it had sold out.
Instead we saw 'Frances Ha', which is a lovely, slightly quirky film about a 20 something dancer who struggles to pay her rent.
It was a lovely, happy film. I recommend it if you're looking for a light-hearted but non-sentimental film.
Here's an outfit from Friday:
Zara silk blouse (horrible quality.... am thinking of replacing it with an Everlane one. Any recs? Are Everlane shirts good quality?)
Nudie jeans, Mulberry bag and APC Sandals.
Yellow J Crew bangle, too
On Saturday morning, I had a momentary lapse of reason, and ordered this blouse. The 30% off sale was just too much to resist.
I got a size P0, so fingers crossed it fits.
So, leading on from the Zara blouse issue above, do any of you have recommendations for simple silk shirts? I have a couple of Equipment ones that I love, but they are rather $$ here in Australia, and the signature style is too oversized for me - I prefer the Brett style.
I really like the look of the Everlane colarless ones:
The only problem with this is that Everlane only ships to the US and Canada, so I'd have to use a parcel forwarding service.... which is fine if the sizing is standard, but no good if I'd need to return it, as the faff would be too great.
Any other suggestions?
Hope you had a fab weekend, and that US readers are having a good long weekend!!
