Clashing it up

Hey lovelies,
Wohooo Friday!! And man have i had a long ol’ day today. Tried to tidy the abode today and make it all lovely, but seriously, tidying with a toddler is like shovelling snow in a blizzard! Completely pointless. He was literally behind me re-creating the mess!!
So then we took the little tyke to the toy shop to pick up a few pieces for the other two, again BIG mistake. Neo now owns a small (little girls) shopping trolley. He was so attached to it he had to have it on his lap on the car journey home. Hes happily spent the evening wizzing around the house putting things in his little trolley (namely the corned beef mentioned previously and a tin of tomatoes)  then squealing with delight when he would crash the little trolley in to the sofa/ wall/baby gate/ mia/ talyn.
let me tell you 7 o’clock could not come quick enough tonight!!

Anyywhhoo, have you had a nice friday?
We had a scattering of snow and lots of sleet showers today, but nothing of significance which was a shame as i’d love Neo to experience a proper snow fall. But wow is it cold! 2 degrees celsius and this is my outfit for that!

Long sleeved pink top: Dorothy Perkins

Jumper: French Connection (about 3 years ago)

Skinny Jeans: Next

Boots: F&F

Scarf:From Barcelona about 10 years ago (i had a scarf addiction even back then!)

This outfit reminds me of Catherine at Not dressed As Lamb, i only found her blog recently but her bright beautiful outfits are so inspiring!!

Oh and yeh, the messy hair is back.. sorry about that… i promise to try and brush it tomorrow.. 

Wish me luck for the weekend, its gunna be a busy one! As much as i love to shop, i hate shopping this time of year. Vix from Vintage Vixon summed up exactly how i feel in this post! You’d think this would be the season of good will to all, but people become evil when out shopping!! And that my friends is not christmassy!

So on that note, i’m off to do as much christmas shopping online for the kiddies as physically possible!

Take care

    LOVE the colours of your outfit. I wish I could tie a scarf like that. I love scarves but always look like I've tried to strangle myself!! Need lessons!! Have a good weekend.

    I love how you've tied that delicate scarf over the chunky sweater, what a lovely look, I'm inspired!
    Good luck dealing with the grumpy masses, mind you, it was the biggest party night of the year last night, and believe me, town was heaving, so maybe most folk are too hungover to contemplate shopping. x

    I'm so embarrassed to admit that I never considered using a scarf to create that faux pussy bow effect! I'm so going to do this!

    Hi Rachel, hope you had a lovely Christmas!

    Thanks so much for the link, I love the fact that I've inspired you! And this is where it gets spooky… I have that exact same scarf!!! Mine is also very old, I have no idea where I got it from! You look lovely :)))

    Wishing you a fabulous New Year,
