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)!
