Indisputably, the weekend starts at 5 pm on a Friday. And although I love the weekend, Fridays themselves have never been that special for me. Friday nights were usually just another quiet evening spent at home or out running errands; and there’s nothing remotely weekend-ish about that! But the past few weeks, a friend from work and I have been going out on Friday after work. After a hectic day of answering phones and advising customers for her and cleaning cars and driving about for me, we go out for supper and a visit. It’s brilliant to socialize and spend time with a friend, and it’s also nice to have the opportunity to switch from my grubby work clothes to something more polished!

Last night we went to get our nails done professionally– a first for us both! And since it was something of a girls’ night, I wanted to look put-together; but I’d just spent nine hours on my feet in a hot garage and I also desperately needed to be comfortable! So I went for a casual yet vintage-inspired look, including denim capris mixed with modest peep-toe shoes and an olive green puffed-sleeve top. Vintage pearl jewellery added a touch of class and sophistication, and my choice of nail polish also complemented the outfit. It was my favourite, fail-safe, yet timeless shade of deep red which makes me feel very Forties indeed! Now I think I’m making the most of my Fridays, and I can’t wait for next week!
