Pearls and Twinset



The little lady decided to join me in the pictures today and show me up as the slack mother I am by still beng in her PJs. This look is a bit 'pearls and twinset' but I felt like a bit of a change. Finally I have found an outfit which Alan actually likes. He has long bemoaned the fact that I wear mini skirts and tight stuff (clearly I completely ignore him). I sometimes wonder what he was expecting, you don't pick someone up when they are wearing next to nothing and then expect them to become all demure in their fashion choices, do you?

Anyway, this idea of putting the strapless dress over a top was one of Fi's from ages ago which I have only just gotten around to trying.

Top - Primark
Dress - New Look
Cardigan - Tesco
Tights - Primark
Shoes - Primark

This is my favourite look (of yours) - great shoes too!

Thanks Jane, I'm slightly put off it now because I went to toddler group and my friend told me I looked like Mary Poppins!

You look lovely Kate - not mary poppins at all!

Perhaps it's because I have opportunities to dress smartly to go to work, but I think I'd feel overdressed if I wore a lovely outfit like that around the house and to a toddler morning? (in fact, I don't even dress that smart for work - I'd wear your outfit today to a wedding!)

Me Fi or another Fi?
Ignore the folk at toddlers, clearly they are jealous. Also, what do men know? I wore a denim skirt last Friday and H said he didn't like me in it. I thought about it later and remembered that was the skirt I had on the night he first kissed me! No idea. *head desk*

I saw that dress in New Look, they had it in Tall too. If the summer had been nicer and I'd had a wedding to go to I might have bought it.

Thanks All - yes it was you Fi. I did actually buy the dress for my best friend's wedding but I love the feeling of being dressed up and looking a bit fancy so why not feel like that everyday?

I love this outfit, it's so graphic and it really complements your cute figure!!
