Weekend Recap...

Hi all!
 Hope you're feeling good this morning! I have a bit of sore throat myself a result of the changeable weather over here I think! Anyhow Friday started good with a shopping trip. I picked up a few Spring basics along the way and going home we stopped off in Avoca for lunch!


This is a beautiful lifestyle store, selling everything from candles and homewares to gorgeous clothing. They  stock labels like Hoss Intropia and Anthology. I must go back for another trip some morning to have a better look around!


We had a delicious lunch in the restaurant before heading home.


  
The rest of my weekend was quite uneventful , but I did pick up this gorgeous denim tunic while doing the grocery run! I had been looking for a shirt, but not being one to ignore a bargain I think this is a great versatile option. It is from the F&F range in Tesco and can't wait to wear it with coloured jeggings and wedge sandals.I liked the ruched detail on the waist and button down front with a mandarin collar. Not bad for 18 Euro!! I paired it here with my new spotty scarf...






 Today it was back to early morning calls again as the Mid term is over. Wishing Conor good luck with his trial exams which started this morning for the leaving cert!!
Have a good week everyone :)

  7. Love that spotty scarf. Cool tunic too- it's amazing what you can pick up at Tesco's. Would love to go to Avoca, and love the things I saw online. Will see if I can go next time I'm over. My BIL is talking about going home for a visit in June for the finals so may pop over as well.

  10. Glad you had a nice weekend Anne but sorry to hear yu are croaky, must be doing the rounds. Hope you feel better soon. Good luck to Conor in his mocks. Niall started his J. Cert mocks this morning. The blue top looks great and I love the scarf with it. Love Avoca but don't like the clothes much, I think you need to be 5ft11 for most of their stuff as it is very floaty and lots of layers. I'm not tall so am swamped in their stuff, but do love the food and accessories. Have a good week x
