Down By The Quayside

Today was the most beautiful day in Newcastle - there was not a cloud in the sky, and it was a good 14 degrees I'd say, amazing for this time of year!! I still had ridiculous amounts of work to do (only a couple of months of it left though!!), but I decided to take a break from it this afternoon so we could have a walk down to the Quayside - I couldn't just sit there while it was such beautiful weather outside, who knows the next time that'll happen?! It was the first day I'd been out without my scarf today, so I was pretty happy, but there are still tights underneath that skirt (at least in the first pictures, I laddered them later before taking the later pictures!!). Every Sunday there's a market on the Quayside, so we had a wander through there, annoyed that we'd already eaten lunch because we were so tempted by the chips and churros!! 
Blazer: Primark
White Tee: M&S Outlet
Midi Skirt (and belt): Primark
Flats: Primark
Sandals: c/o Matalan
I had to include the picture of Ben in this post because it's about the only decent picture of him! He's not the most photogenic person!! Anyway, I'd had this outfit planned since the moment I spotted this skirt in Primark, the blazer and skirt seem made for each other with their perfect pastel colours, but I was reluctant to wear it before it was a truly nice Spring day outside, and this was my perfect day!! I was so happy to Ben as my photographer today, but the light was just too bright to get good photos of the actual outfit, so we waited until a bit later to take some more in the graveyard, in which time I managed to ladder my tights significantly, just while sat working, so I took them off and replaced the shoes with these sandals I received from Matalan, another perfect Spring/Summer item, although I think I like the flats a bit better with this particular outfit =)
Hope you all had a lovely weekend, and you had as good weather as we did here!!
