This dress drove me bonkers today! It kept riding up at the bottom and pulling down at the front so I was constantly adjusting it.
It was a mighty Myer bargain last year and it was the dress that taught me an essential lesson – always test drive something properly before you buy it. By that I mean sit down in it in the change room, walk around in it for a while, check out all angles in the mirror and bend and stretch if you have to.
That being said, I still like it so maybe it was worth it after all! It is stretchy and comfy and I dig the color blocking and simple palette. And it lends itself to all sorts of jewellery combinations, and a colorful array of shoes and handbags.
After a one hour jog (which included walking up a couple of hills) I skillfully threw it on in the car and made it just in time to see my little guy perform in his kinder Christmas concert. He is just adorable and heads off to school next year. I have been so blessed to have spent so much quality time with him – his early years have gone so fast. You have to lap up their affection and desire to spend time with you while you can because there will come a day when they want you to drop them off at a party around the corner!
The embellished silver Rivers sandals ($5 op shop find) gave my feet a great rest but if I wanted to thrill hubby I would have slipped on my patent pink Nine West platforms.
The more time you spend thinking about an outfit, usually the better the outcome. If I’d had more than two minutes to throw mine together I would have worn this diamond necklace. Instead I went with silver hoop earrings and piled on a cuff and bracelets. And now you’re Looking Good Girls!
