White, Red and Blue Rut

Hello ladies,

how was your easter? Did you eat your weight in sweet goods? I refrained from over indulging as i’m trying really hard to loose a few pounds before summer. So far so good. I’ve been getting my sit ups and press ups on too!  I may fall off this wagon again but i’m enjoying it at the moment!

Ok so i have to tell you something i am in a major style rut!! Seriously! i’ve been laying awake in bed thinking what the hell am i going to wear (and blatantly putting waaayy to much thought in to it!)
Have you ever just stood in front of your wardrobe and gazed blankley in to it thinking “I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!” when obviously the wardrobe is full to bursting point and yet i can still not from a cognitive outfit. All my outfits i put together lately are red, white and blue! i cant get out of those colours.
So after a little thinking and playing dress up in my own clothes i managed to add yellow into the mix. so now i’m obsessed with blue, red, white AND yellow.. i need some intervention and inspiration!

Put for now here’s some more red white and blue!

“neo do you like mummy’s dress?”

“…. yes Mummy but you need your bag too!”

“now lets goooooooo!”

Dress under jumper: old… New look
Jumper: Dorothy Perkins
Shoes: Hush Puppies via Very
Bag: Matalan
Brooch & hairband :  Sunshine & Carousels via Etsy

Poor Neo has been soooo poorly, these pics were taken last week. He seems to have gastroenteritis, so a doc’s trip for us tomorrow. I hate seeing him so ill, he’s such a healthy kid and this is just knocked the wind out his little sails. I just want to make him better. But needless to say there has been no fabulous outfits here as this mama is on constant poop alert (lol, sorry!)

Anyway, i hope you are all having a nice bank holiday Monday and i will see you all soon!

    But, but, but you look so lovely in red, white and blue – especially this outfit! You are looking fiiiine lol. And yes, I regularly have that feeling about staring into the abyss which is the wardrobe going 'THERE IS NOTHING FOR ME IN HERE!'

      well thank you lovely! glad the red white and blu has gone down ok with everyone as there's lots more of it lol! :)xx

    aw, i'm so sorry to hear about neo. i'm sure it is not fun to see him feeling so icky. i hope he gets better soon!
    and on a clothing note, go with red, white, & blue! you don't look like a flag in the least, and whenever i pair those colors together, that's pretty much my only goal. you look great!
    and i can't help it, but when you mentioned adding yellow to the mix, i instantly thought of snow white! maybe you can get some woodland critters as an entourage…


    • April 10, 2012 / 4:17 pm

      Kym i LOVE the idea of snow white… now to get me some critters and to dress Neo up as one of the dwarfs lol! :)xx

    Your blog post seems so familiar to me! I looked into my closet and all I saw were black dresses. Some polka dots, some patterns, but mostly black. I need some colors in my wardrobe!

    • April 10, 2012 / 4:23 pm

      glad im not the only one!:)

  11. April 10, 2012 / 1:47 am

    Style rut?? Goodness lady, your outfits are always so inspiring to me! I love that brooch and the whole red, white, and blue scheme. I was good this Easter too….also trying to drop a few before summer:)
