It's The Little Things

Top from Lucca Couture, skirt from Vero Moda, boots from Schuh

Today I took advantage of the improvement in the weather and asked my boyfriend to do an impromptu photo session across the road from Waitrose before we got some ingredients for our dinner!  I was wearing one of my usual outfits (black skirt, black tights, black boots!), but with one of my favourite tops. It's such a pretty, feminine shade, and I love the little details: the lace at the shoulders and the bottom, and the slanted edge is very flattering.

Looking very serious because the sun is in my eyes!

Then I went home and cooked dinner. Ingredients included courgettes, chopped tomatoes, sausages...and one pretty top, now splashed with oil!!!

Last time was worse though: my boyfriend left me alone in the kitchen for about two minutes, and when he came back I was in floods of tears. As soon as he left, I somehow splashed hot oil all over my hand and wrist, then put it under the tap...but I always forget which tap is which, and instead of cooling cold water, I put my hand under the hot hot HOT tap! Pain and tears ensued.

Hopefully the oil will come out and my top can live happily ever after!

I was NOT smiling like this after I noticed I'd splashed oil on my top!
