A pretty dress and heels, as a contrast to pretty scruffy cut-offs and a top…


Last night when I was putting the piles of washing away, I had a flick through my wardrobe and concluded that it was about time to dig out a few favourites that I haven’t worn for a while. After all, there are only so many times one can wear shorts and a top before everyone goes “Oh look, she’s wearing shorts and a top again. How exciting.”

This Reiss dress I’ve had for probably three years now and it’s always nice on a sunny day. I’m also wearing a Paul Costelloe clutch bag which one of my friends gave me for my birthday and some NW3 Hobbs shoes, which I bought at Bicester for about £30 instead of their £189 price tag.

I shall be up early every morning this week getting a few hours work in before the older two surface. However my 6 year old photographer will be taking some snaps of those favourites I have mentioned. I can’t promise that I will wear the outfits for the entire day and once that pink front door closes, it’s quite likely that those shorts will be donned again. But at least it makes for some slightly more interesting blog posts…hopefully.

Oh and I am trying as hard as possible not to look at the new season’s collections that are filtering through because frankly, I want the sun to last for as long as possible and the thought of winter clothing right now is pretty horrific.  However with the “Fall” collections filtering through – you do realise that “Autumn” will soon be a thing of the past when it comes to fashion – I couldn’t help but take a quick look at Baukjen and there, predictably, I fell in love with something, namely this jumpsuit, which is £99.  I like to think of it as a more stylish version of a Onesie. Now we’re talking!

    Your dress looks lovely, and great shoes too, I do know what you mean about shorts. Wow like that jumpsuit, one of the nicest I've seen. Sue xBestfriendstyle

    The shoes are great, can imagine they would work really well with skinny jeans as well. Love the jumpsuit (the price not so much!) x

    Use real life as a learning opportunity. Daily life is full of opportunities beyond those offered in a traditional learning model. Help them improve their daily grammar mistakes as well. Cooking dinner can teach children important math skills such as measurements and conversions. phillyaccidentlaws | renoracepromotion | simpleteesusa | slovakcatercume | theelectrichearts |
