Yesterday's OOTD...

...not a very exciting outfit and one which I am ashamed to say is all H&M....

....this brand allegiance will change soon I promise - it just so happens that all my quick-retail-fix stuff for the summer seems to come from this store.


I love these denim shorts though...and I mean love. I don't feel like I have to wear an arse harness to wear them out and about...they are long enough to cover everything that you want to and are a little bit baggy and therefore super comfortable

I wore them to Dubai Mall which has beautiful butterflies that drape from the ceilings in the high end section of the mall (didn't buy anything round there sadly but did pop into Chanel and Hermes to fondle the goods)...






...and to an impromptu lunch at Rivington Grill in Souk al Bahar.

It might seem weird that one of my favourite restaurants in the city is one serving British grub but it's location is fantastic (opposite Burj Khalifa and with a great view of the fountain shows), staff friendly without being overly-instrusive and the food is always reliably hearty and good.

I had the haddock fishcakes, amazing chunky chips (I have simple tastes!) and a veritable cocktail of drinks!



There was also a sticky toffee pudding involved for desert. Yummy! :)
