As ever, my thirst for life lessons has been present; I did a strange and unexpected thing and have spent an entire week wondering and fretting about it. What is so ironic is that I thought I had left behind my fretting stage of life. I thought I didn't give a damn what other people thought anymore. Turns out I was wrong. It's a funny thing to find your true self shows through, even when you try to train it not to. However just once, I would have liked to defy the convention of my own deeply rooted habits and be different!
On the back of the jcrew patterned trousers, (now legendary in my house for being my 'wild' trouser stage) I am also still loving brogues and geek glasses and all things preppy and scholastic in style. I am not sure what to make of this wardrobe lust - one to ignore or one to pay attention to? I seem to have mislaid my instincts for what I like vs what is appropriate. How should a 38 year old wife and mother of two, currently on a life sabbatical dress?! I'm thinking 'Kathleen Kelly' in 'You've Got Mail' with a touch of something else...hmmm...
Oh and I also went to a beautiful Ball in a stately home where I wore a backless, full length dress and sipped champagne, sporting a hair-do. Most civilised. In between times, dogs walks in the fields (so much soggy mud it's not even funny anymore). Some blog-neglect and associated guilt - as my friend would put it - what would the 'Dear Readers' think has become of me? I fear I have turned into a fair-weather blogger! Must do better ;-)
There won't be much down-time this weekend for me - but it's all good. Got to live life.
Have a lovely weekend!
