Red Riding Hood

Hey all... 
Today here in Wales, it is our countries Patron Saint, St. David's day!

There's lots of symbols for Wales; Daffodils, Leeks, Harps, Love Spoons. We are quite the bunch!
So wherever you are in the world, Happy St. Davids day from Wales!

To mark the day I've worn a red dress :)
Red Dress & black patent shoes: Clothing at Tesco (dress on sale £7.00!!)
Blouse: New Look

Spring has sprung so it seems!!

We've had some truly beautiful days here
Now this outfit has brought three like minded comments.... School Girl.
Now before i stepped out the door, the thought did occur to me, that yes i do slightly look like i may be going back to school as a mature student.
But as the day went on i started to wonder if i looked a bit, well, silly.
The outfit as a whole i love, but then i started thinking, am i getting a wee bit old to be dressing like this? I mean, im a mum. When i drop my son off to school in a couple of years time will he mocked as his mother dresses like a school girl? I've come over all self doubting suddenly. Should i be conforming to the jeans and suit jackets or worse, hoodies? Okay, thats not gunna happen really, but it has definetly got me wondering....ponder, ponder, ponder. Whats your thoughts? would love to hear!
Either way, the £7 red dress is wonderful, i already have 4 other remix ideas with it which i cant wait to share with you.


so then lovely bloggy folks, off to do some actual work. Weekend is almost upon us, woohoo!

  2. Love that outfit. Didnt make me think schoolgirl at all! Although if our school uniform had been a bit more like that, maybe I wouldnt have hated wearing it!!

  3. you look SO much like zooey deschanel in this outfit it's not even funny. i am envious! i want this dress, your hair, everything! i love the yellow belt - it's such a nice addition!

    i don't think you look like a school girl, and i think it's awesome that you don't dress in the 'mom uniform'. it's good to stay cute and stylish!

  4. Being a mum doesn't reflect your entire indentity, nor should it reflect your wardrobe! Your bargain of a dress looks fab! Can't wait to see your remix ideas ! Xo

  5. The dress looks great, don't worry what the un-fashionable people think haha.
    I got a similar dress to this in Tesco for £10, mine has sleeves, I guess that means the sleeves were £3! xxx

    Fab outfit and what a bargain! I LoVe it. I'm quite often the typical mum at the gate and I hate that I am - jeans, ballet pumps, top and a cardi. Very much envy your style - don't doubt yourself :-)
