Can you believe that was the last week of the Summer holidays - seems to have flown right by! I was really hoping the weather would behave itself so the kids could enjoy some sunshine before school next week but the only day of sun was whilst I was stuck in the office at work - typical! I decided to let the kids have one last long lie-in this morning before the onslaught of 'back-to-school' early wake-up calls next week ... so there I was sat with my morning cuppa (in my morning slobs!) when I received a tweet from my lovely blogging buddy Andrea over at In Mama's Wardrobe inviting me to join in the Fashion Item Friday Blog Hop which she is co-hosting with the amazing Renae over at Simple Sequins. You can share a fashion item, whole outfit or whatever you fancy and link on up! I'm a newbie to Renae's blog but feel incredibly moved and inspired after reading some of her posts ...
So ... bearing in mind that I'm no fashion blogger (as many of you will know!), I like to be comfortable and I don't care (too much) if things don't match - here's my effort for today in an attempt to get the kids off their devices and out to the park (raincoat was in car!) ... one of those stupid weather days of mixed up cloud, sun, wind and rain, - one of those days when you dither around trying to decide whether it's worth hanging out the washing or not ... we all have those days don't we ...?
Grey 'RUN DMC' T-Shirt - New Look
Dark Skinnies - Primark
Comfy Navy Cardigan - Primark
Green Bag - Warehouse (old)
Brown Converse - can't remember where from they're so old
Grimace - all my own!
Told you nothing matches but hey ... that's me all over ...! Apologies for the state of the garden (needs a good going over!). And ... as you can see in the background I stopped dithering and hung the washing out!
And just to ruin the illusion (whatever that may be!), here's one of my many (and I mean many) outtakes with hair all over the place in the wind, crooked belt (which the husband didn't think to point out!) ...
... and the dog's tail wagging in the foreground ... utterly professional round ours ...!
So thanks again to Andrea for the invite ... I've linked to both her's and Renae's blogs above and below so pop over anytime if you will and link up if you like!
Will you be linking up to the Fashion Item Friday Blog Hop? Will you be matched or mismatched?
