Over on Facebook I’m part of a blogging group. On the Wednesdays of each month we have a group prompt that we’re all going to answer. This weeks’ prompt is…
What I Wore Today
I pretty much live in my jeans apart from when I’m out attempting to do some exercise or they are in the wash. As you can see they are a bit over loved to the point that I’ve had to trim the straggly bits off the bottom and now I have one leg longer than the other. These are by Next and the style is Boy Fit – I really like them as they are comfortable and baggy but now I’ve lost weight they are actually too big and I can take them on and off without needing to undo the belt or the button. I keep trying on new jeans in the right size for now but I can’t find any that are comfortable enough. I’m guessing there are probably some out there I just need to start having a proper look. I tried on a couple of pairs in Primark the other week when I took Our Sidekick shopping – the 14s were okay but a little baggy so I tried on the 12s and they nearly cut me in half. I guess it’s going to be a challenge even when I am a smaller size.
I love Breton stripes – Wiki Fashion, and because of the version of nerd that I am, I love the history too. Technically this isn’t a Breton shirt but it’s that idea. Breton stripes should be navy blue with white in between (and there should also be 21 stripes on the shirt but that’s a technicality). The French Navy uniform consisted of a Breton shirt the idea being it was easier to spot sailors when they fell overboard because of the stripes. This particular shirt is a Primark special, I did have a couple of tops that were specifically maternity wear but the rest of my shirts were normal T-shirts a couple of sizes bigger to compensate for my bump while I was pregnant with Jaxon – it was definitely a cheaper option. As you can see it’s a bit stretched round the tummy but it’s quite comfortable and easy enough to feed Jaxon while wearing it.
On Monday I attended a thanksgiving service. I didn’t have any suitable shoes to wear so ended up wearing my flip flops. I grabbed this nail varnish and painted my toe nails so that they at least looked a little nicer than they normally do! This is Tempest by China Glaze, I’m not quite sure where I got it from but I really like the colour. It’s a blue purple when on, as you can see in the picture below. (I got some feedback from some friends about my blog and the comment was not enough pictures – so here we go with trying something new).
Jaxon and I both have cold which is really rubbish – his keeps getting to the point that he ends up with his nose running all the way down his face! I keep trying to blow his nose but it really upsets him as he doesn’t like the tissue being in his face.
Do you have a particular outfit that you reach for when you’re chilling out at home?
