Well our weekend in Devon was a total washout. The rain did not stop for a single second!
We ate in Exeter at lunchtime on Saturday and it was actually freezing, the rain was just pouring down in sheets and severe weather warnings were put in place because of the flooding risks near all rivers in Devon. Oh what joy, and exactly what you expect in July!!!
We warmed up with Latte's and home made soups and sandwiches here. Not quite Ice cream and cream tea weather ............. We all had our coats on.
I was tempted to wander around the high street and find a pair of gloves (and I am sadly not joking!)
To try and make it feel more like a little summer break we went into Torquay for the evening.
Hmmm, beautiful sandcastle making weather there too!
But we did find a lovely Italian restaurant and drowned our weather sorrows with a nice bottle of red wine.
Well to quell the disappointment en route home we stopped at Shepton Mallet and even the weather brightened up a tiny bit in anticipation.
You may remember that I was in Somerset just last month for my birthday and I lucked out as the Mulberry sales had just started and I got a dress and some boots (it rained all weekend then too!)
I had heard that the autumn/winter colours had just landed at the Mulberry Outlets and I was really hopeful that that would mean some cabbage green pieces would be in!
and I sooo wasn't disappointed!
They had the gorgeous cabbage green in the Alexa, the mini Alexa, and the Taylor. They look so beautiful on display and you are instantly drawn to them as it's a really nice vibrant green :)
Well, this baby came home with Jools .......
Mulberry Alexa Cabbage Green Camera Bag
In the Sales section, they had reduced items by up to 90 percent now! They had some really nice pieces, especially shorts, but I am just really worried that we are not going to even get to wear them so I regretfully passed on those.
But we found a fabulous dress.
I have always loved the Carousel collection. The print is fantastic and I have the make-up bag already.
When I saw this I loved it. When I saw the price tag I was like WOW!!

Pleated on the skirt, and it has pockets - YAY!
and this was the price!
Well, we were totally seduced by the A/W colours.
We also came home with the camera bag in Conker for Elli-Rose and
we couldn't resist the Mini Alexa for Mimi also in the cabbage as it was the only one they had!
I was so very proud of Andy Murray, he played brilliantly. Sadly he came up against an awesome Federer today
and there were plenty of famous faces in the Royal Box for fashion watching!
Victoria wore everything from her own line. Dress is for A/W 2012 so not available yet
You just know the guy behind them can smell the hair products !
and Andy Murray's girlfriend Kim Sears was toting her Mulberry Bayswater today.
I hope you have had a fabulous weekend
