CHECK ON CHECKS

Last weekend I went out for a lovely Saturday lunch for some warming Mexican Tapas on a rainy day. Is anyone else insanely sick of the rain yet - it can be glorious sunshine outside, but in the five minutes it took me to decide I'm gonna get some fresh air, the sky has gone grey and it's raining up a storm. And don't get me started on the wind - it makes having an umbrella pointless, and results in any wonderful style and beauty look you have put together, look a soggy mess once you reach your destination.

Anyway, before I rant you into a boredom induced coma, here's what I wore.







Checked Trench Coat, New Look
Nautical Style Scarf, H&M
Royal Blue Jeans, Dorothy Perkins
Converse Hi-top Sneakers
Slogan Tank with PU Trim, Miss Selfridge
Open Checked Shirt and Belt, H&M
Headband, Primark
Necklace and Rings, H&M
NYC Spring Street polish; Collection 2000, Sherbert Lemon


And I couldn't leave you without showing you a picture of the incredible food from the fabulous Las Iguanas, and the good news is, they have plenty of locations throughout the UK - so to say something incredibly cheesy, get some spice in your life.

Nachos, Pear and Brie Salad, Jumbo Pawns, Calamari and Tostadas, there was also some glorious Chorizo in there too.
So how have you all been spending your weekend, where have you been going and what have you been wearing?
And to all my little lovelies down under I hope you had a fantastic Mothers Day!

    1. The food was even better than it looks, everything was so delicious, I just want to live there.
      No need to thank me, everyone has hard times and we should all be there for one another.

    1. Thank you, I always think my outfit posts are a bit crap because I'm usually a very casual dresser, so I'm not glammed up like many of the bloggers I love, so I really appreciate the complement, thank you :)

  8. Thanks for popping over to my blog - chuffed to have found yours. Love it!

    Your outfit is gorge and I really love the second photo of you. Isn't Mexican food just delish. And calamari is one of my fave foods. I love when fashion bloggers throw a bit of food porn in - the perfect mix!
