How's it going in your neck of the woods?
I'm just starting to feel normal after having a horrible chest infection. I've never had one before and it really did take hold and made me feel really unwell. I've got two more days of antibiotics - one a day which I've never heard of before!
I'm attempting ballet this morning and after having done nothing since the Monday-before-last I think I'll probably struggle. I'll take my time and rest if I can't carry on, do wish me luck!
So as you can imagine I've not taken many photos over the past week, but had these waiting in the wings from last Friday.
They were taken when I went out with my sister and mum to a local restaurant for our mum's birthday lunch. I wasn't on top form, but felt I couldn't let her down. I ended up having a super meal and a brilliant time and although we didn't stay long, all of us had good fun chatting, laughing and planning future outings.
Items marked with * have been gifted to me, however these are 100% my own honest comments.
You all know I adore wearing dresses, so it was an obvious choice to wear this pretty blue Geo dress* last week. I couldn't resist another in this retro print that looks just as good in the 2022's.
Boasting long sleeves and a midi length this Izabel London dress is the most perfect style for this in between season when the weather hasn't quite made it's mind up. Sometimes it's hot, others its windy and cold and occasionally we can have both on the same day!
Last Friday it must have know it was Mum's birthday as it beamed glorious sunshine all day - to be honest I didn't get a good shot of me inside the restaurant because the sun was shinning right on me!
I love when I put a dress on and it just feels right, this is how it felt. The length is perfect on me and the cross over bust detail sat beautifully in place and didn't move or gape. The only issue I had was the belt. It didn't have a catch or buckle and kept slipping off. I'd have preferred it a bit longer so I could have tucked it in or with a clasp of some description.
I didn't plan these shots very well and you can see there's lots in the background that shouldn't be seen, but hey ho I had other things on my mind, good food and fizz ha ha. 😂
What you can see is the cute detail over my pleated dress, how about these colours together? There's such an assortment of pretty shades and I could have picked a host of shoes and bags to complete the outfit, but I settled on my new - ish black sling backs. Even though they have a high heel they are really very comfortable. I have in mind my sassy blue sandals or my long white boots to change the outfit from lunch ... to dinner .... to a special occasion with the change of a shoe - adaptable is my word of the day. X
Now let's see the birthday girl. Here's my mum - doesn't she look well. I'm a lucky lady to have such a wonderful, clever, caring and helpful mum in my life. She's very independent, always has been it's sometimes hard to pin her down because she's always doing so much for everyone else!

I tend to wear silver jewellery when I wear blue so I put my big silver hoop earrings on. I always love wearing them but am often worried I'll lose them. The silver necklace is so pretty - the kids got the opal for a birthday or maybe mother's day. It's in a tear drop style and is set in a silver mount on a fine silver chain - down side is that the chain gets caught in my hair and pulls it out - that's the trouble with long hair I think! Anyone else have that problem?
