305 days to go: Is this the right outfit to....?



Is this the right outfit to ...

plan tomorrow's creative writing session?

to chat to my neighbour who is looking remarkably well after a courageous struggle against a terrible disease?

meet my son's teacher to discuss his less than exemplary behaviour?

to pick up my youngest son from school?

to watch my middle son play football?

to sit down and waste time seeing how many people have bid for my closet clearout items on ebay?

to chat to my eldest son about his forthcoming trip to stay with his girlfriend and her family?

to prepare dinner for six?

to prepare bags for tomorrow?

to read to my youngest son before bed?

to snuggle up with my daughter on the sofa and watch rubbish TV?

to fall asleep on my husband's lap?

You decide?

Halter dress: Primark
Camisole: M&S
Belt: Matalan
Shoes: River Island
Bangle: Free gift
Cardigan: Asda
Necklace: Top Shop

Stacy said...

Love the whole outfit, but the jacket especially pops!

Christina - That's what I thought but I wore it anyway!
Stacy _ I was going to get rid of this jacket/cardigan but I am so glad I didn't.

that girl ? said...

Yes... on all 13 counts! If you can achieve all that whilst looking stylish then you truly are Super Woman!!
Love the jacket - I'm always drawn to mustard colour, I love it, but if I put it anywhere near me I look positively gross! Might match the snot tho!

I agree, the jacket is a huge winner! I love the sleeves. I've seen similar styles in the store, but I always wonder if I can pull it off... (and really, I think you can do most of the things on your list in that outfit!)

So far so good. I have managed most on my list. I am waiting for my youngest son to come home from football practice so I can bath him and read his story.
I had to swap the heels for cowboy boots during the match! A great result, my son's team won 5-1 and my (middle ) son scored 4 of the goals. It was a great match to watch as his big brother was the referee.

Hell, yes! You look great - I love that cardigan!

see you there! said...

The jacket really picks up the color in the print dress. I think it is suitable for all you mentioned.

Very nice and perfect for the season too!
I am laughing at your Leif Garrett comment...I used to read those mags...it was Shaun Cassidy that put a smile on my face though! And do you remember Phoebe Cates? I found recently online she has a store. I think it was called Blue Tree.

Audi said...

Yes to all! Why not look stylish no matter what you're doing? Those colors are perfect on you.

KT said...

You had me at hello. OK, I really, really like this outfit. I'm not sure I get that much accomplished in a week let alone a day.

workthatwardrobe said...

Wow - I didn't expect such a response.
But thanks for your positive comments. It has given me more confidence with wearing what I feel I want to wear rather than stressing about should I?

I love the outfit! I too am having a wardrobe clear out on ebay! So far mine is going well - I hope you are having sucess too!
