Florals & Denim | Good Friends! | LINK UP

Floral dress, Denim Jacket and Supergas | Fake Fabulous

If you're lucky, you might have a friend (or even two) that really knows who you are and what you love.
Someone that just 'gets you'.

These fantastic friends are the ones you look forward to seeing.
The ones that make you laugh out loud.
The people that put you at ease and make you feel that you are enough.

The other day a friend like this surprised me with a 'no reason' gift and I was chuffed as nuts.


Floral dress, Denim Jacket and Supergas | Fake Fabulous

She'd spotted these colourful gutties when she was out shopping and thought of me.
How lovely is that?

These shoes tick so many boxes for me.
  • Bold in colour.
  • Comfortable.
  • Well made and sturdy.
  • A little bit androgynous.
  • A little bit 90's!
  • Plus... I've never seen a pair quite like them before.
{Having the same shoes/clothes as someone else is not something I strive for!}

Happy Feet = Happy Face.

Floral dress, Denim Jacket and Supergas | Fake Fabulous

Today, I'm wearing my new shoes with a floral dress and a denim jacket.

Nothing special to be done, just chores and errands, BUT who says we can't look nice while doing the mundane tasks of life?

What would YOUR ideal 'no-reason' gift be?

SHOES: Superga (a gift)
DRESS: Sisley (Charity shopped)
JACKET: Boden (older than time!)
BAG: French Connection

Last week Laurie caught my eye in her beautiful swimsuit.
Although, it's more beautiful Laurie... the swimsuit is playing second fiddle!
Over 50 and looking pin-up-fabulous.

  3. What a wonderful thoughtful friend, you're both lucky to have each other! The shoes are very you.
    I've always loved pairing denim with brighter colours so this outfit gets two thumbs up from me.
    And to answer your question, my ideal 'no reason' gift would be ANYTHING that I'd be happy to own in my closet!

  4. I always say that true friends are the chocolate chips in the cookies of life (it's actually a saying from a pillow that a good friend bought for me). I really think that any gift is special....just the time and energy that someone thought of you makes me smile!!

  9. Love the colorful Supergas! What a great gift from a good friend!

    I have a bloggy question - your "Blogs I Love" feature in your sidebar - how did you do that? I'm using Wordpress and the WP widget for "blogs I follow" pulls up ALL the blogs I follow, many of which are not necessarily my favorites. I do remember when I used to use Blogger that I had a list like yours...I like the way yours is, showing the title of the most recent post and keeping the most recently updated ones at the top. I know I can just do a link list but it won't have those features. Thoughts? Thanks for any suggestions :-)

    1. I'm sorry to say I know nothing about wordpress Bettye!
      I'm not even sure if it has the same widgets... but there were options to select the snippet, most recent post and date of update in blogger.
      Perhaps you could simply google how to do it?? There is a youtube video for everything!
      I hope you find what you want... it's so frustrating when you know waht you need but don't know how to get it!
      Good luck.

  15. You know I love color Sam! So this is such a perfect fun and colorful dress on you, fun look with the denim jacket and those hip new sneakers! How nice of your friend to give you a gift, just for being a friend. Hmm. No sure about the ideal gift, but probably a colorful dress or a variety of bubble baths supplies as I take baths alot. ;-)

    1. Blimey Jess... I'd LOVE to take more baths.
      If I go to a hotel the first thing I do is run a bath and jump right in.
      I remember going away for a weekend and having 3 each day!!! Sheer bliss.
      I don't bath at home because there is always someone chapping on the door, needing something. Not very relaxing :oP

  18. I'm pretty clueless as to how this post slipped by me but I'm glad I caughtvit. This is exactly the kind of look that I LOVE to wear. Denim jackets, colorful tops/ dresses and shoes that have some uniqueness, humor and color! Add a bit of embroidery somewhere and I'm in my niche!
    You look so cute Sam. I'd want to know you if I saw you on that errand! :-)
    Love, Jude
