too short??!

Hello lovlies… Hope you’re all having a good week… friday is almost upon us woohoo!! another working week done!
its been another hectic week. Hubby’s birthday on Wednesday, which my lovely mum babysat on the tuesday night so we could go out to a restaurant. and let me tell you we feasted like a king and queen!! i still feel full two days later….
Since then ive been playing catch up as we were dirty stop outs that didnt get in till 1am on a school night! which is unheard of for us. needless to say im still shattered!(aren’t i always?!lol)

anyways.. on to the outfit, my outfit for work today

I didnt realise how short this dress was when i bought it online at modcloth, but i love it regardless… it is definitely a dress for work or a day when its a sit on my bum all day kinda day.. no bending down to pick up Neo in this one thats for sure, cos let me tell you i can’t bend like a laaddiiee like im supposed to!

Coat: M&S about 3 years ago

Cardigan: Tesco

Dress: Modcloth

Tights:? a place that sells tights possibly?

Shoes: Poetic Licence via Very

yeeehhh im back on the colours. and the shoes…well they are my most favourite shoes at the mo. comfy and have a puurrddy lil flower on, and they go with so much! 

Think i may remix this dress with some skinny jeans for security of my dignity (and my underwear πŸ˜‰ which could be quite nice.

i managed to get hubby to snap these pic’s between rain cloud downpours… its been like it for days. Ive been wearing clothes (thankfully) but no chance for piccies. 

This weekend to celebrate hubbys birthday (he’s like the queen, he gets to celebrate twice the lucky bugger!lol) we’re going bowling with my sis and bro in law and the older kids, and nanna gets to look after the baba’s.
Good job i didnt wear this outfit bowling…. well maybe i could have mooned the pins to fall down   ;o)
Now what do i wear bowling? any ideas??

I’m off now folks… but i will leave you with pics from hubs birthday 

look at that little face smiling behind the dummy, his fav thing to do, read books(neo that is, paul…unless its on an xbox hes not so big on the reading).

reading dada a story, and the story goes according to neo
“ah bah bah bah bah”

eating one red velvet cupcake and one dairy free muffin
here one minute, gone the next…and he loved it!

Well take care all, I’ll be back soooon!!

lots of love

    OMGosh, I have that same dress. I love it so much. I layered it with a lacy skirt to give it a little more length. Pretty pictures!

    Definitely not too short – you've got the legs for it! The colour of your coat is lovely, makes for really fab pictures against the dark backdrop πŸ™‚ Looks like your hubby had a lovely birthday x

  10. January 20, 2012 / 1:15 pm

    That's such a lovely outfit – I live the colour of the coat!
    A pair of leggings might save your dignity in bending down situations?
    Happy birthday to your hubby! Xo

    Such a lovely colourful outfit, just whats needed in this dark damp weather.

    Loving the bright pink coat and the shoes.

    Enjoy your bowling and try not to flash your bottom!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog! I love how you styled that dress up. That yellow cardigan and purple/pink (?) coat are just perfect with it! <3

    It is, by far, one of my favorite dresses, I just wish it was longer! When I"m not wearing it with skinny jeans I put another skirt under it to add some length.v πŸ˜‰

  13. January 21, 2012 / 12:28 am

    LOVE it all, like always! And I am loving the stuff you sent from the giveaway! So much fun to have new things to play with in the wardrobe!

  14. January 21, 2012 / 1:22 am

    love the colour pallette in this outfit, really complimentary, you look great! x

  19. January 23, 2012 / 12:26 pm

    Rachel! You are definitely a YUMMY MUMMY in that dress! You look so cute! I love it with the mustard cardigan and the pink jacket and I think the thick tights really tone down how short it is! You don't have any skin showing= perfectly appropriate!

  20. January 24, 2012 / 5:44 pm

    I think I'm going to make the hubs take me out to eat tonight now. Ha! LOVE pink on you!

  21. January 25, 2012 / 2:11 am

    such a sweet dress! i have that problem with short dresses as well – i have long legs so sometimes the dress ends up a lot shorter than it was in the picture!

    your blog is so darling – i hope you'll consider joining our chic blogger network – you would be perfect!!

  22. January 27, 2012 / 4:11 am
