Catching up…

I am guilty of a few days of blog neglect…sorry about that! Lots going on – two days in the charity shop, changing cars, Valentines, the nursery teddy visiting (again!) and my return to circuits classes after a long break. On top of all that, my choir concert was last night (Friday) so I was rehearsing and helping with arrangements during every spare minute.
The concert was a wardrobe dilemma. We were performing The Timewarp and I was hoping to dress up a bit but the only chance I got to look for something was on Valentine’s Day, where I had all of 30 minutes in TK Maxx. I tried on some faux leather jeans (too big), studded hotpants (too small) and a sequin dress (too shapeless) and all too awful to share photos of. Instead I’ll show you what I wore for my Valentine’s lunch with Mr SGS

I was fed up of wearing jeans by Wednesday and as it was a lovely day, I decided to make an extra effort and wore my Zara snakeskin dress (old) with Moda in Pelle ankle boots, a cropped cardigan, belt & scarf.

After this frantic try on session, I made things easier for myself at the concert by opting to wear my Warehouse dress (last seen here) while time-warping. It has a bit of rock chick about it but has minimal risk of wardrobe malfunction while dancing & singing! I then changed into my Gok Red Peplum dress for the main part of the show. Hoping I can share some of the official concert photos on the blog soon as I don’t think I’ve ever featured the Gok dress on here.

After a late night (took a long time to come down from the adrenaline rush of the concert), and a broken night’s sleep because of a poorly little girl, today was spent entirely in my PJ’s and it reminded me how lovely it is to take a day off life now and again. I got loads of housework & paperwork done in between calpol doses & cuddles and I’m hoping after a better night’s sleep tonight, we’ll be firing on all cylinders for the rest of half term. 

I’ll finish with the sight that greeted me on Valentine’s morning…what a way to start the day (nursery teddy included)!

    Welcome back, you have been busy! Your little girls are just soo cute. Playschool teddy bears can be hard work, hope you kept him well entertained!

    You looked gorgeous for your Valentine’s lunch date – looking forward to lots of Spring inspiration from you, my skinny jeans and boots are worn out!

    • Aw, thanks Lily! Lovely to hear from you. Yes, the Nursery Teddy duty is done for the year hopefully..we had her twice in the past month! Only so much you can do with her on a rainy day lol! Hope you’re keeping well – just loving the photos…keep them coming! Enjoy half term, Avril xx

  2. The occasional PJ day can only be a good thing! Hope your little one is better soon. Love your Valentine’s outfit. Can you point me in the direction of a scarf tutorial, either on your blog or elsewhere? I’m stuck in a rut with my scarf wearing abilities! Thanks x

    • Hi Angie and thanks for your lovely comment. I should be in bed catching up on my sleep but I saw your comment and had to pop on this link to my favourite scarf tutorial, Wendy’s 25 Ways to Wear your Scarf in 4.5 minutes! Fantastic – I look at it regularly tho I do think how best to tie a scarf depends on the weight and volume of the scarf too. Hope you enjoy it. If you’ve seen before, let me know – there are a couple others I can give links to! Avril x

  4. Same here, hectic few days, blog neglect, deep guilt! Wish I didn’t feel guilty when I don’t have time to blog but have to remind myself that I do have a job aswell!

  5. You looked lovely for your lunch Avril. I’ve had a few blog breaks lately too & it’s actually been really good to step back and get a bit of perspective.

    We must arrange a wee catch up soon.
