Matchy Matchy

Hello all, 
I have had a fabulous weekend! Hope you have too!
Yesterday was close to a perfect Saturday I’d say. Hair doo in the morning with my s.daughter Mia, i had the perfect cut too. I have found a hairstylist that gets what i want and delivers. Hurrah!
Then popped home to see the boys and then Mia and I went to the shops and stopped for a little lunch. Back to more time with my boys and then got ready for our annual mummy, daughter night out. Mum, Rhiannon and Me went for food in a beautiful italian restaurant (where i took a doggy bag home for hub’s) and then went to watch I Don’t Know How She Does It (which we all loved, I had read the book,and loved it,I know those lists, guilty feelings, messed up look soooo very well!)
Then today was spent tidying(yuk) and playing with my Neo. Only problem is I now feel like I’m coming down with a cold!(poo poo poo!) Sore throat, no energy, terrible headache… There’s no sick days as a mummy so i hope and pray i don’t fall ill as i blatantly don’t have the time for it!! Go away ill lurgy’s you’re not welcome here!!!

So on to the outfit….
I have been a follower ofA Beautiful Mess since i started this whole blogging malarky a mere few months back. Their blog, to me, is an inspirational wonderfulness. I’m a closet wannabe crafter. I’m a bit rubbish at any craft because I lack time and possibly imagination and also possibly skill, lol. But these lovely ladies inspire me to try. They have a fantastic Vintage shopRed Velvet where they sell some pretty amazing pieces and also there own designed and hand made pieces. The following is The Library Date Dress… I heart it muchly. It is a dress with multiple possibilities of re-mixing. 
For my date out with the family i chose matchy matchy. Red belt, shoes and belt. 

This outfit couldn’t be more kitch, which i love!!!

Bag: Nica from last year

Shoes:Hush Puppies from Very (and Oh My God are they comfy!!!)

Belt: Newlook

The dress is extremely comfy and just the right length that i’m super comfy with. Ok, i think you probably get the point that i like my dress lots and lots. Not everyone’s cup of tea, no. But what ever floats your boat i say row with it!!

There’s something about a patent red pair of shoes with hearts on that just makes me smile. I feel so girly in them. My sister and i agreed that we could see these kind of shoes on her 17month old little girl. Cute with a capital C.

Here are some bits and bobs from this lovely weekend:

A rare moment where all 3 are still enough for a photo!!

Big boy pj’s

Looking so grown up with her new hair doo

Daddy dressed Neo, apparently Hillbilly is the way forward?!!!??

Neo spots an opening with Talyns out of bounds toys

Courgette chips were AMAZING

Goats cheese and pesto pasta mm mm mm!!

diet went out the window at the starters.

And here’s a few vintage purchases I’ve obtained lately:

These plates conger up huge sentimental feelings. As a kid these were the plates we had at home. They were a wedding present for my mum and dad in the ’70’s. My mum was so shocked when she saw them. She opened the cupboard to yester-year 🙂 

Well as the weekend draws to a close I’m going to go get myself a big hot choccy to sooth my sore throat. Hope you’ve all had a wonderful weekend 🙂
