Unlucky Dress

Hello Lovelies 🙂
Mid way through the week and I’m already looking forward to the weekend. Not to wish the days away but weekends are so much better than week days! 
All is calm in our household so far this week. Still plenty of time for stress to shuffle its ugly head in but so far so good!

If i haven’t mentioned before i work 3 days a week (Tues, Weds, Thurs) and then on constant call Mon and Fri. 
Since going back to work i have noticed a massive divide in my wardrobe. I opt for skirts and dresses and girly nice things for my office days and then practical and hopefully still pretty for my mum days.
I’m actually slightly overdressed for my work, (i work on a busy industrial estate mostly surrounded by greasy garages and man stuff, lol) but i don’t care, i dont go far these days so office is my dressing up! 

I dont mean to look like a cheesy car advert here, its the only way we could get the quickly slipping away light and still see Neo who was in his car seat in my car. Glamour Glamour Glamour, lol!

Dress: Primark, real cheap
Bag: So very old
Boots: New look and a new wardrobe staple!

This car isnt mine, more’s a pity! One of the aforementioned garages left it there outside my office.

Title for the post really is true. This dress is unlucky. Every time i wear it i drop food or drink down it, draw pen on it by accident, or generally get it in a mess. Today was all of the above plus, i picked Neo up and his velcro shoes snagged the hell out of it. Then to top it off i let Neo escape when changing his nappy, when retrieving the bare bummed baby he proceeded to pee all down me. POOR DRESS! This is why my wardrobe is divided. 

Wanna little look at this week so far: Here goes:

Home dyed my hair, left on for too long and a little darker than the box  said it would be.  Plus i  am the worst home hair dyer ever!! I had it everywhere, up my arms, in my ears and even on my chin?!

I feel intelligent in my specs, great disguise for my dippyness hahaha!

chosen by Talyn my gorgeous step son


Bless her little cottons!!

nanna knitted this hat when Neo was born. It now fits 14 months on.He will not keep it on though!!

aww i gave him a sudocrem beard to help his rash.

Happy Wednesday and have a cracking rest of the week Lovelies 🙂

    Awww, bless little Neo and his sudocream beard. I've been there and done that too! And that letter to the tooth fairy is just so sweet. Loving the outfit but bad luck indeed. Poor poor pretty dress xx

    Awww, poor little Neo! I love your cute kids, it's always a joy to see tham.
    What a stunning workwear outfit. You look fantastic and that car looks totally like it should be yours.
    If you're the worse hair dyer than I'm not far behind you. x

    What a great dress and the color is so in this season.
    Totally see your point about practicality over beauty when it comes to photo shooting spots. Mine are always so rushed and frantic and in a bad light but I do what I can.
    Your kids are adorable.
    Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
    Love meeting other fashion blogger mommies.
