I just don't know where the week has gone, it seems only yesterday it was Sunday! I've barely had any time to think. But can't complain about being busy! I popped into Primark a few weeks ago to grab some Glasto essentials and you know how it is. You grab something you need and get distracted by things you don't need and end up spending a small fortune. It's all a bit of a blur! This two piece set was something that caught my eye and swiftly came home with me. I actually met my friend a few days later for lunch after I brought it  and she mentioned she saw a skirt that was perfect for me and promptly described this one. It seems I might be predictable...

I gave it it's first outing at the weekend to a Murder Mystery overnight stay at a fancy local hotel for my mum's friends 60th birthday. We had afternoon tea, went for a quick outfit change before coming down for a three course meal with a bit of light entertainment. The murder mystery wasn't quite what I expected but I had a really lovely evening and don't think I stopped laughing. I drunk far too many glasses of wine and completely overindulged at the buffet breakfast the next day. The makings of a great weekend!

Have you ever been to a Murder Mystery weekend?


  1. I really love this co-ord set! It does suit you so well, and wouldn't have guessed it was from Primark!

  3. Ohh this outfit, I need a Primark trip! x

  4. tell me about it with primark. i promised myself last year that i wouldn't ever buy from them again (i was having a save the world and whatever moment), but it's stopped. because i pick up things i don't really need and have, but obviously feel like i want them at the time.
    but enough of my stories, it's all about you in this beautiful set. because it's beautiful and even more so beautiful on your beautiful self. and wow that's a lot of beautiful. xx

  5. I've always fancied going to one of those, would you recommend it?

    Loving the floral outfit.

    1. The one I went too was a little too serious for my liking. But if you're with a big group of people it's fun!

  6. Your outfit looks incredible, I can't believe they're all from Primark! Definitely going to head down and search for some myself :)
