Happy Monday Folks!Did you have a nice weekend? I do hope so!
I have been in a bit of a rut lately. I was standing in front of my wardrobe staring blankly in complaining to Hub's that i had nothing to wear (to which he did the husband eye roll thing, you know?) Maybe its the lack of shopping and that i'm feeling a little uninspired with what i have, i don't know.
So, after a mammoth trying on sesh where i was being a complete diva/spoilt brat and didn't like any of it (picture me throwing stuff on the bed in a huff like a child throwing its rattle out of the pram) i just picked up my favvvee dress. Knowing I'd already asked Paul if we could do blog photos today he responded to my dress choice with "didn't you do that one recently?" Gold star for observation hubby, gold star. But that wasn't really what i needed to hear at that (stroppy) moment in time. You see sometimes i just want to wear my favourite dress. Full stop. No need to worry that i've "blogged" it before and even worse, very recently. No worries that it's not remixed much differently than the last time i wore it. I just wanted some uncomplicated fave dress time. You get me?
And what resulted in this action? Well it made me do lots of this:
Sometimes you just gotta do what you want to do i reckon. Do what makes you happy, go with what feels right. I think i often over think things and make them more complicated than they need to be, and thats not just with my wardrobe. There's a life lesson to be learnt here me thinks...
Do you blog your outfits?
Do you ever get weighed down with the worry of repeat outfits?
It sounds so silly really, in real life (as opposed to blogasphere life) we all wear repeat outfits all the time, heck its not like we're Victoria Beckham and have a different outfit every freaking day, we're real life women.
So therefore ladies I stand up!
I am a repeat wearer of the same outfit...and sometimes two days on the trot!
(Sshh don't tell anyone that bit!)
It feels good to just grab a dress and go and not worry.
Anndd i think maybe i need a little shopping to get the creative juices flowing again,hahaha!
I feel like the dress is such a statement piece in itself that there's not a lot of re mix options, a jumper over it maybe? But i kinda
If you're curious, this is when i last wore it here.

We stopped at this viewing point on our way home from our lovely friends house on Sunday.
We had spent the day watching the kids play wonderfully and i had baby cuddles with their gorgeous 10 week old baby... hello broodiness (which then dissipated quite quickly as Neo had a tantrum as he couldn't take the toy trains home with him!)
So anyway, in other news ladies, the nights are drawing out ever so slightly and it means we have around an extra 40 minutes of light at the end of the day. Paul did say we probably wouldn't have enough light to take these photos, so apologise if these are a little dark, but i was ever so slightly excited that it was 4.30pm and still not dark! Springs-a-coming people!
So then ladies, you go forth and repeat those outfits!
And have yourself a very happy week!
