Whilst most of us myself included are staying put for the Easter break. I'm sure there are the lucky ones of you out there that are taking off for the holidays?
So while I am still layered up to the max (snow boots included)! Here are a few tempting goodies to pack from our amazing HIGH STREET if you are getting away this weekend.
And for the rest of us frozen fashion lovers, a feast for the eyes, for when we can eventually bare maybe a wrist or an ankle!
I love a weekend break, somehow just a few day's away can make you feel rejuvenated, especially if taken in this country, no flights to contend with, just pack, jump in the car or take the train, and within a few short hours equilibrium is restored!
"We" that's the VHM and I recently had a fabulous break at Malmaison in Manchester......I could so happily have moved in here forever! Manchester is a foodie and shopping haven.
If you are looking for a quick getaway, I can't recommend this hotel enough, nothing was too much trouble, the staff are uber friendly but very professional, the freshly cooked food was excellent, and the room was just perfect.
P.S. They have a great offer on at the moment for Easter! (whisper nicely in his ear)
If I am lucky enough enough to have a return visit to Malmaison, these would be my pick's to pack!
N.B. To VHM.... I quite fancy the Oxford one next time?
SHADES OF GREY....No Just Black and White!
(My VHM now suddenly looks very interested.....NO DOWN BOY.......it's fashion speak!)
So being the simple soul I am, the new monochrome look works really well for a city break.
Mango Dress £22.99
This little dress is a great basic to take for day. I would team it with flatties if doing a lot of walking, or opaques, heaven forbid if its still cold, and boots.
H & M Leather Sandals £29.99
Matalan Biker Wellies £14.99
OK.....but you never know, especially if you do make it to Manchester....SO Sorry Manchester people, but you are known for your rain!
I just thought these wellies are so super stylish. Cool for festival wear too..... Very Alexa, Mossy etc!!
Zara Long Flowing Trench Coat £79.99
Not sure how practical in the rain, but how glamorous is this trench? Great for going out in the evening too.
River Island Dress Midi Dress £28
I Love this dress, but if a bit too bodycon for you..... me included, pop a loose knit over the top. And after you have had a few Champagne's take the sweater off and feel like a
Star......which of course you are always are!
Zara Two Tone Sweater £35.99
Great sweater to team with black/white/or the brave among you ORANGE skinnies!
And if a Grey moment does come along how about this stunning tie dye sports luxe dress?
