I’ve woken up this morning with a sweet lil gusto for life that seemed to have gone missing over the weekend.
I’m sitting in bed with the curtains open, sunshine streaming in, a cup of coffee half drunk, my peonies are blooming and the radio’s spluttering out some sweet summery tunes. Life feels good again and I feel like me again.
Anyway, on Saturday night Chris and I went to the cinema for the first time since maaaaybe Gone Girl? No, that can’t be right. Um. Wait, what else have we seen? Oooh yeah, Jurassic World, that’s the one.
We actually saw Me Before You, mostly because I fancy Emilia Clarke probably a *bit* more than I fancy Chris. Then I realised that heeeeey wait a minute, I definitely read the book version of this. Because I can remember sobbing on the commuter train home to Sussex from London and having to awkwardly put my sunglasses on to hide my fragile little face even though it was pitch black outside.
Anyway, we had a little stroll out in the sunshine before the movie, and had a sneaky little cocktail because WOAH, SUMMER IS HERE – I went for a frozen peach daquiri which was absolutely babin’. And then y’know, took a few outfit shots, much to the delight of Ipswich’s finest who were obvs out for sambuca shots and banter. Those guys.
So yeah, I enjoyed the film, mostly because there was a woman down the front who sounded like she was struggling to breathe through her ginormous sobs.
I held my tears in to the point of a serious sore throat and I’m 102% sure that denying myself the chance to ‘let it all out’ was the very thing that set me up for yesterday’s hideous bad mood and anxiety downfall. FFS.
Anyway yeah, I wore this cute little summer bardot dress from Toppers – which is a bit see-through. I tucked a nude strappy slip underneath and stuck the straps in my bra, like a styling pro.
Oh, and I thought I’d show you what Chris wore too, in case y’know, you were like that’s a sweet af striped shirt that I need to point out to my boyfriend when I next drag him shopping, or something.
So yeah, happy Monday you internet babes.
