What I Wore Wednesday: Retirement Celebration

Last Thursday my Mother-in-Law retired so NotBlondeHusband, Blondie Boy and I went out to dinner with her to celebrate. I bought yet another Cynthia Rowley dress from TK Maxx and hadn't worn it yet so decided now was the time! Unfortunately it was pouring rain and blowing a gale so I couldn't wear cute shoes. I know some people are very, very, very anti sheepskin style boots but when it is disgustingly cold and wet outside and you are running to and from the car with a toddler cute shoes just don't cut it!



Zara Coat
Chelsea Skull Scarf
Cynthia Rowley Dress
M&S Leggings
Sketchers Boots

I had to bundle up with my skull scarf and my Zara coat. I some how managed to lose my favourite black leggings in our massive clear out so I had to go buy a new pair but used a gift card I found in said clear out so not a total loss.

I even busted out my Katy Perry "Oh Honey" fake eyelashes. I've only worn them once before but I love them. They are easy to put on and after that initial weird fake eyelash feeling I don't even notice they are on!


I love this nail polish I got at the grocery for only 89p! Plus it is Fast Dry which I love because I'm impatient.


The dress has pockets which I love and zip detailing on the back that I forgot to take a photo of! I'm planning on wearing it when I fly down to London to go into the office this week. I'm thinking with my leopard heels? Do you think that would work?

Leopard heels will be better than flipflops ha ha ha x

I love your outfit! Although I can't imagine being that bundled up- still hitting 100 regularly in Phoenix!

Melaina25 said...

I don't wear flip flops to work! I almost linked to you and said "I know Claire won't approve...." before the bit about the boots.

Melaina25 said...

Polka dots and pockets are a GREAT combo!

Melaina25 said...

Cute dress! Thanks for the link up :)

Melaina25 said...

ha ha ha. Nah i with you, my uggs were the comfiest thing ever. And on a nasty day comfort is needed!

Melaina25 said...

Yes, that dress would totally work with leopard print heels! I love that dress, I'm a bit pocket fan as well. Whenever I see CR dresses in TKMaxx I think of you. So far I've not found any I love, so haven't got any, but I keep looking! I forgot to reply to your reply last week. Yes, I think Cardiff would be the closest red lable store, so I'll have to plan a girly shopping trip there with my Christmas money!! xx

Love that scarf - and as always, you look lovely :)

Melaina25 said...

I am impressed you can paint your nails (even when it dries in a flash) and not mess them up. I look like a two year old did mine if I try!!!! :) Very cute dress, too!

Melaina25 said...

I just love pockets on dresses!

Melaina25 said...

I wasn't even intending to and look at me I'm bang on trend ;)

Melaina25 said...

I think so too!

Melaina25 said...

Jealous!

Melaina25 said...

Great buy on the nail polish! I have a very similar color and love it!

Melaina25 said...

I am no fashion expert here, but I think it could totally go well with the leopard print shoes. Sexy! I need a pair since I don't have one. So shame! hehehehe.... You are looking lovely and if I were in the same situation I would want my shoes to be comfy as well. Love that dress! I have not tried wearing fake eyelashes as well so I should try it. Maybe this halloween should be my first try since if it goes bad coz I won't know what I am doing, then it would be okay since it's halloween like you were meant to do it that way. LOL!

Melaina25 said...

I REALLY like your skull scarf and that blue nail polish.. whenever fall comes around I know it's time to pull out the navy polish! :)

Dresses with pockets are the best! As are polka dots. It's a win-win, really. :)

I love the dress. Fabulous find! And I'm with ya on the nail polish. I am so impatient. I half to have fast drying!

Melaina25 said...

Great dress and I loved that you paired it with the skull scarf. Funny, when I attended a retirement party last year I went with the same color scheme (black and white).
