Party Aftermath...

I hate it, the cleaning, the tiredness, the general mess (crumbs in the kids beds,little plastic green soldiers in mine!?!) the ominous stains on the carpet, and this was a kids party, no alcohol was consumed at all!
I always feel a bit hard done by actually, 'cos I tidy like a mad woman pre-party, then have to do the exact same thing post-party! Too much cleaning in my books!

But having said all that, we're had an awesome weekend. Neo's first birthday party was a  big success and lots of fun. I was sooo pleased. I was stressed  right out in the morning trying to get it all ready, but it all turned out great. Neo ran from room to room all day and ate anything in sight.... so did I thinking about it! My boy is one and we celebrated his first year with fun, food, family, friends and laughter. Couldn't get much better right?

Today consisted of a little bit of shopping for mummy me, and obviously tidying(as little as possible).
Outfit today

Love my wide leg flares, so comfy and practical



Love this bird print




This top is from New Look and I'm wearing it backwards and open (crazy, I know!) But i thought it looked lovely like this, it also looks nice the other way too and plan on wearing it with my newly fixed orange necklace soon. But don't you just love multi way tops! I feel like I've got 2 for the price of 1, amazing!
Jeans and shoes are as previous posts (sorry I know that's really lazy but I'm reeeeallly tired from all the crazy partying. I''m so tired I keep spelling words all mixed up and it's taking me twice as long to type anything!)
Wanna see some pics from this weekend?

Mickey mouse sandwiches (thanks Sis!)

Some of Neo's pressie's



Partying is hard work, rest time with Nanna

So funny, never work with animals or kids right?  This was the best pic of a bad bunch, the other picture had  Maddy picking her nose, the other pics had Lillie copying her. (I thought I'd spare you those, hilarious as they are!)

I wore a dress by Closet which was bright and cheerful, my mickey mouse ears have disappeared at this point (they were mandatory to begin with!)

aww

Thanks for the decorations Sis

Stocked up on socks and accessories today

Loving this retro print fromRiver Island Outfit posts to come for this little beaut

New Vintage purchases for an ongoing project of mine

I've "acquired" (ok, bought) some lovely things lately can't wait to show you all with some new outfit posts! Also my lovely friend Estelle of twinkles tutus twirls came to the party in a lovely jacket/blazer that I also own(great minds ay!), she has given me a lovely idea of what else I can do with it (No I haven't had an idea as such I'm just stealing her style, but that's what friends are for right ;)  She is also one stylish mummy!


Ok I'm off before I my head hits these keys, I'm aiming for the Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  12. I really like this outfit! The top has such a pretty print and adds a lot of visual interest. The accessories are perfect and you can never go wrong with a dark wash jean!
