Dress: £8 at Boohoo (only size 12's left)
Shoes: Newlook (similar here)
Because I just love pointing out my outfit flaws, check out the fake tan mishap on my hand in the first photo. I should have my own circle of shame going on! In my defence it doesn't look that bad in real life, I blame photoshop curves.
This dress is definitely a nod to the summer but sometimes it's nice to don something other than black on a night out in the winter. I was discussing something similar with my hairdresser the other day, people tend to dye their hair darker in the winter but I'm always t'uther way round and prefer to brighten things up during the dark days, anyone else the same? Speaking of darker days these indoor outfit photos are not working for me at all in that every photo looks like it's been snapped on a pound stretcher disposable, sigh.
This is completely irrelevant but yesterday I visited a "soft play" area with my Sister and Nephew, how do Mum's cope in these places? The cons definitely outweigh any pros, here are the things that left me shuddering/never wanting to go back.....
1. The stench. A delightful mixture of sweat and grease from the canteen style food.
2. The noise. From the screaming children to the screaming parents who complain at anyone if their child gets tripped or pushed, either will leave you with a headache.
3. The germs. Snotty kids touching anything in site and running around with bare feet.
4. The moral dilemma. Do you refuse to join in the frolics and cause upset to the child you're with? Or do you risk various infections for a smile?
If I ever have kids I'm going to have to come up with a plan to avoid these plasticy mazes of doom.
