Today I visited family on the Isle of Wight – my Hush order arrived on Friday, so I was able to wear a new outfit as well as having an awesome day at the same time! I wore my new Sloppy Joe Dress in grey marl, and my L/L Stretch Tee in black, and together they really were incredibly warm and comfortable. Hush definitely deserve their reputation as a company for comfy clothes that are perfect for casual weekend outings – and the pockets on the Sloppy Joe dress are perfectly placed for mooching about in!
I wore the dress with a dark pink Fisherman’s snood from Oasis, and over the top was a giant coat I picked up from the Next clearance store in Portsmouth Gunwharf Quays back in April. I also took my red Alessandra crossbody bag that my friend Lisa bought me for my birthday in Accessorize. All set!
I had a blast visiting Osborne House – my nan, in the first picture, actually worked there as a maid during the ’50s, so it was fascinating to hear all of her memories about the place. And, as you can see, we had to have a go on the carousel too!
At the end of the day, we went to visit the shops on the seafront, and we wound up popping into Cameo of Cowes – hence the bags you can see in my hands in the photo on the top right! The shop sells unclaimed items bought/salvaged from lost property, and it’s a complete goldmine. I’ll post what I bought another day – needless to say, I am very pleased with my bargains, and it took a lot for everyone to drag me out of the shop! If you’re ever in Cowes, make sure to visit – it’s located at 16 Bath Road. I know I will be back, and probably with a bunch of friends in tow!
