To be fair the postboxes aren't to blame as I didn't bring my laptop with me down to England so I couldn't have posted anyway. I was in the office and out at meetings all day Wednesday and then my flight was delayed back to Glasgow from Heathrow and I didn't get home until almost 10pm at which point I decided to finish up some work and go to bed. So major apologies I didn't get What I Wore Wednesday up last week.
However I'm back! NBH and I haven't been able to get out just the two of us for a while now as my father-in-law and his wife are back in Thailand and my mother-in-law and her husband are on an 8 week retirement trip. Amazing for them but means we are severely lacking in babysitters! Luckily NBH's Aunt and her husband stepped up to the plate and watched Blondie Boy for us this evening so we could go out to dinner.
We went to the newly opened The Waterfront in Ayr. We'd been wanting to go for some time now and I'm glad we finally got the chance. It's right on the river so the terrace will be beautiful in the summer (just not quite now in the winter!) and only a short drive from my Mother-in-Law's house. I didn't get any photos of the starters because we scarfed them right down! NBH had a burger and I had the Fish Goujons both of which were super good and at only £5.95 for a main course (plus £3 for a starter) who can complain!
Okay but enough about the food that's not why y'all are here. Let's talk about the clothes. Two weeks ago I went to a mall while Blondie Boy was at school. I've been looking for a sweater with embellished spike shoulders for a few months not but not found one I liked but hit the jackpot at HM. I shouldn't be shocked since the vast majority of my closet is HM! I wanted to wear it last week but I figured I'd probably set off the metal detector at the airport and that wouldn't be ideal!
Spike Embellished Sweater- HM
Skinny Jeans-Old Navy
Leopard Heels- Dune
I'm so glad I found this sweater and it may not be everyone's cup of tea but it is very me!
I don't often talk about my makeup and hair (other than to complain) but I tried something different tonight. My Dad got me the Naked Palette from Urban Decay for Christmas so I used to dark brown shades on my eyes with a lighter more sparkly one in the crease. My Mom handed me down her Bobbi Brown Denim Gel Liner so I lined my eyes with that for a change from black liner. You can't really tell in the liner but I felt like the navy and brown helped my blue eyes pop.
I also have in fake hair. Yes I know you aren't supposed to admit it but whatever! I've been hating my hair lately; I'd planned to put it in hot rollers but while I packed up my roller clips, heat spray and hairspray I left the rollers at home! So I clipped in some hair extensions and voilà I have instant volume. I'm seriously tempted to get one put in semi-permanently. Have you ever had extensions? Good idea or bad idea?
