Playing with fire with double denim

Do you want to know what my favourite day of the week is? Sunday before a bank holiday Monday. I know, not so frequent an occurrence, just four times on any regular year, but still, that's my favourite day of the week. For me a three day week-end is perfection. I manage to relax enough and unwind in a way that I never manage to usually: on two-day week-ends I am still super wired on Saturday and Sunday I start to get stressed about the work week even before lunchtime. This is why I loved today...

Don't get me wrong, long week-end or normal one, Monday or Sunday, in our household we still wake up at the crack of dawn every single day, 6AM this morning to be precise... So no lie-in for either Hubby Dearest or me... but we haven't had one of those in a super long time so that's not really an issue, it comes with the territory of having two extra cute children, and it does have its merits, such as: you don't get to queue at Granger & Co for breakfast, seeing as you arrive literally within minutes of opening time!

So this morning, with no work-out planned for rest day (I did work out every single day this week, so I deserve a little rest!), I got up, ignored my leggings drawer, and planned a fun Mummy outfit for a busy day out. Breakfast in Notting Hill, then off to the Natural History Museum to visit Little Monsieur's dinosaur friends and other creatures, and finally a birthday party in Barnes... Phew. It's a good thing I opted for flats and comfortable denim!

I told you I have a thing with short-sleeved jackets lately, and I had been looking for a kimono inspired denim one for a while, and was so surprised to see how lovely this one ended up being, considering its price! I know it's a bright blue denim so it was risky mixing it with another shade but I figured dark jeans would be ok. It looked fine to me and the jacket was the perfect cover-up for today's undecisive weather, although it will look nicer with white jeans, I'm sure...

A word on my sandals... And please do not comment how ugly my feet are, I know it, you know it, let's move on and look at how fab these little flats are. They are super comfortable with the adjustable straps, meaning that the multiple straps don't dig into any part of my foot. They are hand braided in Spain with the softest leather, and although they are super flat they have a little cushion on the insole which makes them pillow-like! Sadly the gold ones are all sold out (but not the black and tan suede ones), as they were part of the May capsule on the Sézane website, where all the collections are teeny, but fear not, for Tuesday the June collection goes online, and I'm sure it will feature some pretty lust-worthy pieces!
