As I mentioned in my post here, I had the best weekend ever when my sister came to stay over recently. I wished it didn't end so quickly. Well...the good news is that we enjoyed that weekend so much that we decided to do it again on the weekend that just passed. I was so happy when I found out! We went shopping again, enjoyed some drinks and watched Netflix! Two weekends in a row was amazing. I wouldn't have coped so well with my husband being away for the past couple of weeks if I didn't have these fun weekends with my sister. My husband will be back next Sunday morning. I was worried about being lonely while he was away but so far I've been incredibly busy and haven't had a spare moment to feel lonely. It was also Mother's Day yesterday. I had a lovely time with the family including my kitty cat Juliette Princess Miracle. We made sushi which turned out well and had the tastiest lunch ever with all our favourites. 

This is one of my favourite skirts ever; I don't see too many skirts like this. The rainbow and polka dot design is totally my style. I've had it for a couple of years now and I posted it on my blog previously here. It's extremely fun because it can obviously be paired with pretty much any colour top. I could make so many outfits involving this piece. The cardigan is also a favourite as the lace is very pretty and the piece is versatile. I also have the blue version of this cardigan and I was able to acquire it for 75% off the original retail price. What a great find. I've been getting a lot of use from my umbrella which I received for my birthday (video here) in the last month as the weather has been crazy and much more rainy than usual. It's much more elegant than most umbrellas and really forms part of an outfit. It's also great quality; in the wild weather in Sydney a couple of weeks ago, everyone else's umbrellas were turning inside out and mine stood the test of the weather and remained perfectly in shape- always a bonus. The ba g is my namesake piece; I bought it because it is called the 'Imogen Bag.'

Good morning hun!
75% off is a good bargain. And you look so good in that skirt. I love the color of the umbrella too.

Oh, look at that RED umbrella, I love it! And the whole outfit looks terrific on you. I like all the bright colors. Thank you for your Mother's Day wishes. I had such a nice day with my chickadees.

Have a splendid week, Imogen.

Dear Imogen, I knew it would be that way - time flies and soon your husband would be back! So happy for you and that your sister and you had such a great time again and with a tasty lunch! I agree with you, I never saw such a skirt and it's wonderful! By the way, I loved your hair, could see it better now! The top is also sweet and combined with the flats, so pretty! And the umbrella - blessed the one who gave it to you, it's lovely, I want one like that! Yay for the bag too - I also do it, buy things that have my name or are just name after me :) I liked it too! You look happy and beautiful!

Imogen... I am so happy you had the past couple of weekends with your sister... that is so nice to hear ♡

Your cute and colorful skirt is so you and it looks so wonderful on you... I love clothes that can be paired with so many different items.

Also, it's great that your umbrella is holding up and doing a lovely job of keeping the rain of you xox ♡

Hey lovely!!! I adore your rainbow skirt, it is so jolly!! It is funny the way time passes when a loved one is away. My husband was away most of thus weekend and my sister came over for most of Saturday and my mum for most of Sunday so I barely noticed his absence. X

This skirt reminds me so much of Smarties (do you get smarties over there?) x


What a darling umbrella. I also adore the colourful skirt, it reminds me of board games. Great outfit, and the cardigan is my favourite. <3

Sewing a huge heart onto a jumper is a great idea. I did it one jumper recently too, not just the tee I posted...anyhow, I hope you will enjoy this DIY.

I'm happy to hear that you had another lovely weekend with your sister. A friend of mine came over this weekend so that was also nice.
