A CUP OF TEA ON THE MARINA

It looks like the better weather is on it's way at long last, those new peep toe shoes had to come out to play.
Yesterday was such a beautiful day and I couldn't think of a better way to spend it other than a visit to my friend who has recently started residing on her fabulous barge on Penton Hook Marina. When the sun is shining I couldn't think of a better place to be, it's so calm and peaceful. Plus it's a great location to shoot some photos for my ootd !


The sky was so blue I nearly blended in! This was a first outing for my long length waistcoat, I'm a little behind on this trend, it wasn't easy to find one in the length that I liked. But I found this one in Fand F at a bargain price HERE



I fell in love with the colour of the leggings which I have had for ages, purchased in River Island a while ago. However they needed something to break up the colour. The shirt is from Primark which I also bought a fair time ago. I love the easy go with anything style and bought five of these in different colours.




On a sunny day, and believe me it was so lovely and warm, I couldn't think of a better place to be. We sat in the sun and had a nice cuppa and a catch up. The ducks and swans just hop up out of the water onto the pontoon as if to join in on the conversation!



Plus being as the weather was a little warmer, out came to play my new bargain find peep toe slingbacks. I bought these in a store that sells end of season brands such as Next HERE I paid only £12.00 for these. I recommend a look at this bargain site .



I hope the weather is going to only get better from now on, it's so nice to not have to be wrapped up in thick jumpers and boots. I think I will be visiting my friend quite a lot too! I might even have a go at fishing! This location is Penton Hook marina just opposite Thorpe Park. If your ever in the area take a wander round it's beautiful.
