What I wore: for my birthday BBQ!

Hi all, how was your weekend? We had some more lovely weather here in Wellington and so we got out and about...more about that tomorrow!

So I finally retrieved the pics of my bday outfit from the bf's phone - only three weeks later! My birthday was a Thursday and we arranged a BBQ for that evening. Of course it decided to rain just before the guests were due, so we had an indoor BBQ instead :)
Vest, Primark; Trousers, TK Maxx; Shoes,
The jacket is my favourite new blazer from Topshop :D I have too many blazers but can't help myself!
I have to have a birthday badge every year. It's the rules ;)

I left this photo uncropped so that you can see my glamorous bead and tool cabinet next to me! I need to move it into the bedroom, but for now it's still standing in pride of place in the living room! ;)

Turquoise ring, Primark; Gold ring, Topshop; Watch, Michael Kors; Skull bracelet, Shh By Sadie; Gold bangle, Hay Luv via Hipster.

Necklace, given to me by my nan :)

Earrings, Shh By Sadie

Shoes, (I forget the brand) via

Preparations for the indoor bbq underway! And the fizz was opened!

More of my birthday balloons! And my new speaker system in the background :)
The bf 'chef' :)
 I had a lovely day but that seems like a million years ago now - although the balloons are still hanging around to remind me!
