Red, White & Blue!

Polka Dot Peplum: H&M ~ Blue Trousers: Mango ~ Burgundy Loafers: Russell & Bromley

Happy Olympics Day!
Hello! I thought that I should probably wear my best Olympic-inspired outfit today to celebrate the opening ceremony! Who else is excited about watching it tonight? Are you going to any events, my dad managed to get us tickets for the semi-final of men's diving! To celebrate, my outfit had to be red, white & blue, so I put on my new peplum top that I bought in the H&M sale in Bristol, i'd been after it since it first came out, it's such a nice fit!
Sorry (once again) about my absence for the past week, it's been pretty busy for me! I spent Friday to Monday with my family and boyfriend, Alessio lazing about, with lots of food. On Tuesday I was helping out at a photo-shoot for Homes & Antiques magazine in North Acton, and was asked back on Wednesday. It was such a good insight into the running of a magazine shoot (I didn't realise just how much thought goes into each still-life photo, and how one button or pin can make or break the photo), plus I loved looking at all of the lovely antiques bits and bobs being used! Tomorrow i'm driving back to Falmouth with my dad, to move into my new house, and will be driving back straight after, hello 12 round-trip!
Hope you've all had a lovely week so far, and enjoy the opening ceremony tonight!
Love, Charlestown xoxo.
P.S I didn't realise just how noticeable the pockets of my trousers are? Horrible!
P.P.S Sorry for these lacklustre posts as of late! I haven't really had that much spare time recently, but after Saturday I will so you can expect more interesting (hopefully) posts from then!

It's the perfect print and colour (: I must admit, I haven't been too enthralled by the idea of the Olympics, but now that I'm safely sat in the comfort of my living room, I'm a teeny bit intrigued as to what the opening ceremony will entail!
