Oops I did it again.

Today we’ve had the most incredible weather.  I always get so excited in March here as you can really feel the seasons change suddenly as the buds open, the temperature rises and the pollen increases.  I even burned my shins a little sitting in the garden this afternoon, definitely flip flops and bare legs weather, hooray!  I hope it lasts tomorrow as once the clocks have sprung forward I’m off out for my last long run before the half marathon next week.  I feel pretty virtuous today after a 20 minute shred with Jillian Michaels and then a 5 mile mountain climb on the bike in the Y while the kids were having their swimming lessons.  A good thing really as now the Mini Eggs have arrived in Target they’ve become quite a problem for me.  Thankfully I not only had Jillian to motivate me but an awesome workout partner too.

Poppy has just returned from another fabulous birthday party and she now claims she is a ‘rock ‘n’ roll’ girl…I’m convinced she will actually one day wear black lipstick and worship Siouxsie Sioux – her Dad will be so proud.

As I was leaving the house to take her and her friend to the party I decided it just wasn’t cool to go in my worn out gray sweats so I popped on my lovely reliable Boden Easygoing tunic which is currently on clearance at $49.  I have to say this normally wouldn’t be my style at all but I ordered it on a whim in the sale based on my love of all their tunics and I thought I should at least try this one.  I put it on and it really is the easiest thing to wear.  Worn as a dress, or over leggings or tights, it is so comfortable and I love the pockets.  It does verge on being a ‘smock’ so you definitely have to be careful with how you style it but I am very happy it is in my closet for these early spring days when I want to go bare legged.  I’m wearing it here with my navy Tory Burch Eddies.

I painted my nails again last night and opted for Chanel Black Pearl.  It’s a gorgeous greenish metallic black but I have to say given the price of a Chanel polish it comes nowhere close to Essie or Opi for staying power.  I’ve already had two chips to touch up.

Finally, after lusting over it for 3 days, and then being madly frustrated that the AllSaints website was down, I went and ordered the Dissolve dress.  Yes I know it’s long sleeve and we’re heading into summer but I love it so much and it’s just ‘so me’ so yes I went and did it again and hit that ‘place order’ button.  I can’t wait to get it now – and if there is a short sleeve version I’ll probably get that too…;)
