I have just celebrated the anniversary of a very special day.
My OOTD then.
And my OOTD now.
I'm still digging into my capsule so on went M&S jeans, necklace and jade cardi, black Next top.
The weather was gorgeously sunny and warm the day I wore that fancy long dress, and so it was again on my yesterday. We had a leisurely day, driving to Pashley Manor Gardens for a stroll around the pretty grounds, then a tasty quiche and salad lunch on their café terrace. It was so warm, the cardi came off and I sat out eating lunch in my vest top. What a funny autumn.
In the evening we chose a seafood restaurant that we hadn't tried before.
Just a 15 minute walk away.
OK, dieters, I think you know the drill by now. Food alert!
I sipped pink prosecco and nibbled on black olives, focaccia and anchovy butter.
As we have pensioners' appetites these days, we did our tried and tested two-starters meal, which gives us just the right sized dishes to taste without feeling uncomfortably full,
or leaving lots on the plate.
A crab dish with beetroot and mango. So light-tasting.
My date chose a scallops and chilli "main", with sides of chorizo mash and creamed spinach.
I chose prawns piri piri on patatas bravas, with a green salad side.
The food was wonderful - fresh, good ingredients prepared and cooked beautifully.
A good Sancerre was the perfect accompaniment.
A fabulous limoncello on the house.
And after a superb meal, we strolled home along the dark seafront and stopped to listen to the waves pounding softly along the shore.
The day was absolutely perfect back then, and so it was again yesterday.
Such a perfect day. I'm glad I spent it with you.
A la perchoine.
