Kenilworth Castle - Nic took this photo, isn't it lovely?
You could be forgiven for thinking I'd moved to Narnia, but no. (For real, I'm not sure I could find my way to the back of my wardrobe, so...) I know it's the same for most of you guys too so I'll try not to complain. The reason we were in Kenilworth was our friends JP and Han were visiting over the weekend and we thought it would be a fun outing. It turned out to be closed, so we went to the pub instead. Thankfully it was still open.
Anyway, I really have had my fill of this cold weather, so I'm going to show you an outfit shot from February when I was still hopeful that spring might be around the corner and that there was no such thing as ENDLESS WINTER.
Sunday 17th February 2013 - Ruby Belle Amsterdam dress, red cardigan from a local boutique and Topshop Lacrosse sandals
Remember the SUN? Remember open-toed shoes? Remember not wearing 73 layers IN THE HOUSE? No. Me neither.
But I do remember this day when I wore this pretty dress that's one of my spring favourites, and wore these Topshop shoes that I bought on ebay before Christmas. I also remember managing to miss my mouth when drinking a mug of coffee and spilling coffee all down the front of this gorgeous dress. I'm a spiller, what can I say? I had to take it off as soon as I got home and put it through a cold wash. Luckily for me, the people at Vanish got in touch with me and offered to send me some Vanish to test out.
Now honestly, I hate sponsored posts where the review product is being crow-barred in, but I genuinely am a spiller. I wore my new Limb dress to work last Tuesday for a big scary meeting and ending up doing my coffee trick again and getting it all down the front of my dress. I had to mop up the coffee stains with my scarf! Classy as always, me. I put the dress and scarf in the wash when I got home with a scoopful of the Oxi Stain Removal stuff in along with my washing powder and it came right out. I am a demon for dropping things - when Nic and I first started going out with each other I managed to drop chocolate down my pyjama top when we were eating breakfast and somehow ended up with chocolate on my bum. I am no Audrey Hepburn, safe to say. So the opportunity to sample the stain removal powder was very much appreciated and I have been using a scoop in every wash since - to catch the stains I haven't even been aware I've been making!
Anyway, now it's time for me to go because dinner is ready. Mashed potato doesn't stain, does it?
