Whatever happened to Ricky Martin hey? Yes I got bangs cut in on Friday – or a fringe as we prefer to call it in the UK. I have to say I love it – it’s amazing what a difference it makes. I feel younger with bangs – but maybe it’s just because they conceal the frown lines?
Before I went to the hairdressers I ran 8 miles. 8 10 minute miles – to say I was chuffed, and sore afterwards is an understatement. But it gives me some hope that I will manage the 15k Hot Chocolate run that I have signed up for next Sunday. I need my goals to motivate me – I just need to remember to take it slow and steady. I’ll be the tortoise.
I managed to quickly change into my new ASOS dress before heading out to see Lauren at Plum Salon. That ASOS VIP membership is worth every penny – I used to have to wait up to 2 weeks for a delivery and now it’s just 2 days!
Dress – ASOS extreme checked swing dress (I am wearing a US 6) // Jacket – Gap (old – similar here just $25 this weekend!) // Tights – M&S // Boots – Zara wedge boots (old)
And here are my bangs! Straightened my hair a little for a night out with my Husband. He thinks it’s very Anita Pallenberg – I think it is more Brian Jones or Keith Richards 🙂
Brian has even stolen my AllSaints gilet here…
For date night I wore another AllSaints sale dress. I love this Rubie dress – it is so easy to wear and I think, really flattering as you can ruche it slightly over the tummy area. This is a UK 10/ US 6 so it probably fits on the larger side and it has plenty of stretch in it. Reduced to $83 from $208 in the sale here. Slightly out of focus shot – rushing out the door again!
Dress – AllSaints Rubie dress // Boots – Stuart Weitzman Highland boots
It’s a long weekend here with MLK day on Monday. Just what I don’t need so soon after Christmas! Anyhow we are trying to do lots of things with the kids outside of the house to keep them busy. Yesterday we went off to the park and much to their amusement I wore my Zara denim boiler suit from the sale. It’s the perfect attire for climbing frames and see-saws!
