I got my photos from Karen today – the amazing photographer from Muddy Faces. She made the shoot fun for all of us and you can see the joy in the the children’s faces. I am thrilled with the outcome. If you are in the Atlanta area and need some photos don’t hesitate to contact Karen – she’ll do an amazing job!
I’m not so happy with my self portrait today. I got these jeans from Target and don’t like them at all on – maybe I just feel it’s a bit too much with the red hair and boots…remember what I said about not letting it be trashy – well I think this outfit takes it all the way there…oh well – I think I’m in need of a dress day again soon to feel a bit girly again. Jeans are worn with Gap men’s t-shirt, AllSaints Boston cardigan and Frye Shirley strappy boots.
Unfortunately the Loulou dress I ordered from Boden is going straight back – it looked ridiculous on me – again maybe the red hair – but it was completely unflattering – my boobs looked enormous in it and the pleats just emphasized my stomach. Not a good look. The new AllSaints Amei dress has worked a treat though and will look fab with leggings or tights. I promise to model it soon.
I made my first foray onto eBay today. Having bought a few items over the past week or so, and knowing that the Boden Fall preview will be released sometime in June (I think!) I needed to make room in my closet and increase my shopping funds! It was hard to choose what to part with as I treasure all my Boden clothes like collectibles, but the items I listed just weren’t getting worn. I adore the crinkle jersey shirts but I never wear them as I wear my tunics so often. So I’m excited to see if they get sold or not – wish me luck! (p.s. my eBay seller name is Poppys_style if you want to take a peak!)
S. and his girlfriend arrive today and what with Poppy’s birthday tomorrow I have a few errands to run to make sure everyone gets fed tonight and that my very-soon-to-be-6yr-old has presents to unwrap in the morning. In honor of S. I am wearing more black – my black Frye Shirley strappy short boots, Gap camo jean leggings that I had on yesterday too, an H&M khaki top from a couple of years ago with a J.Crew black tank underneath.
I may be absent for the next couple of days entertaining and recovering so see you soon with lots of photos and updates on fun times!
