So at the weekend I went out with my mum and sister for the day. Which, is a rare occurence. Not spending time with them, because I do that all the time but because none of the nieces were in tow. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love and adore my nieces, but it was nice to do something a bit more grown-up.
We went to a local exhibition, which was held at Lakeside Arts Centre, which is based in the University of Nottingham campus. My sister is studying to be a midwife, and managed to miss the day she should have gone there so we had to go on Sunday as it was the last day Mothers and Midwives was on show.
The weather was gorgeous, which meant its setting by, well a lake obviously seemed even more idyllic. Sitting in the cafe post viewing the exhibition meant we got to gaze out across the rolling hills and still lake of the campus. I must admit that whenever I go there, I slightly regret having gone to Nottingham Trent University, as the campus I went to can’t compete at all. Although, if I had, I’d never had met Jem, she’d never have tossed me a link to Claire’s blog and I’d never have found my calling as a fat blogger. Nor have an awesome friend. Things are supposed to happen for a reason, methinks!
Anyway, I’m ridiculously squeamish and therefore normally entirely disinterested with all things medical. However, this was more like getting an insight to how womens’ lives were across the ages, lots and lots of paper based records showing the way different people had once been. I do love a good bit of history (I almost studied it as a degree, but I’m rubbish at remembering dates, so I didn’t!), and the whole exhibition was like a real life version of Call The Midwife – across the centuries. It was amazingly good, and I’m gutted that as I went on the last day, I can’t recommend that people pop along if you’re in the area. Boohiss!
But anyhoot, I obviously wore clothes to said day out, so here’s the outfit!
Necklace is from Fossil, which I got in Manchester a couple of years ago….I always forget that I own it!
Earrings that I bought in the Accessorize january sale and have barely had them out of my ears since!
Close up of my Fat Face scarf’s pattern….I got inspired to show me wearing a scarf after reading this post by Em!
Shoes (just seen) and Scarf – Fat Face
Having decided to wear the shoes that I’d also forgotten I owned, it meant that I’d then want to wear the scarf that compliments it, and from there on I got carried away with that particular colour….I’ve even got eyeshadow on that is a similar colour! I can be far too matchy-matchy sometimes!
So, whilst I was uploading the images for this post, I found this picture of what I wore when we had all that lovely weather….I’m not sure why it went unposted, but anywho, you get an extra bonus outfit pic!
Top/Shorts/Necklace – Evans
Sunglasses – Prada via local posh sunglasses/glasses boutique
Bag – Radley! (oh, how I adore all my Radley items!)
Sandals – Fat Face (but need replacing really – looking a bit scruffy these days!)
So there you go. Two outfits in one post. Where is your favourite arty place to go in your hometown?
