Happy Monday to you.. i'm running so late today, normally i like to post at lunch time whilst Neo sleeps, but i'm still mid spring clean and so its consuming every minute when i'm not watching the little guy.
The epic wardrobe clear out has gone well! i'm so pleased, i feel less cluttered and i only have the clothes now that i truly love and wanted to keep. I also realised a few things whilst doing the sort out.
I had 63 belts! 63 for crying out loud! who needs 63 belts?! and that doesn't even include the ones already on dresses in my wardrobe. i had 6 red belts, a few other random colours and then the rest were shades of tan. And d'you know what i really struggled to get rid of them! Ridiculous i know.
I also own a hellova lot of cardi's. Cardigans are an integral part of my life.And lastly i have approximately one thousand pairs of tights, mostly navy and black.
So i've finished the wardrobe and there are 5 bags for charity and a huge box load i'm gunna ebay. The de cluttering has made me think that anything i buy from now on has to be really something special that adds to what i have... we'll see how long that lasts though ;-)
Now i mentioned on Friday that our good friend was throwing her sons a Lego themed party. The invite said wear lego colours if poss. It was aimed at the kids but i do love me a theme!

Yellow Top & Red Converse : Next
Green Cardi: George (asda)
Blue Jeans: Tesco
Necklace: Super old
Brooch:Sunshine and Carousels
I kinda LOVE this outfit. Probably why i'm grinning like a cheshire cat in these pics.
Lego party or not i'd totally wear this again. The bright colours make me smile and the added kitsch-ness of the red necklace and brooch gives it a massive thumbs up from me and apparently my step daughter too, she thought this outfit was fab. Two thumbs up!
Also, I've been honing in on lots of bloggers wearing cons lately and taking inspiration from the outfits they make with them. Chucks are an integral part of my wardrobe. As a mama there are lots of days in parks and play gyms etc and sometimes the heels just don't cut it...
Ok folks, i hate to love you and leave you so abruptly but hubby has just told me we have Game of Thrones awaiting us on sky plus! Oh my giddy aunt i'm excited! did you watch the first series? What a spectacular show!
Will be back super soon, do you have nice plans for the week? Its a short one work wise, woop woop!!
Take care all
Ps excuse my roots in these pics, a mixture of the light and my natural mousy brown colour (plus some annoying greys) made me kinda look like a badger. i was tempted to call the post Lego Badger, but resisted. I'm so lazy... must go dye hair, maybe after Game of Thrones! ;-)
PPS: Is anyone available/interested in doing a guest post for me for friday/saturday this week?
We have an impending trip to London for easter which means i will be away from my beloved laptop.
If you're interested drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Edit: Submitted this into July's EBEW as its one of my fav fav fav outfits :)
