Anyway here I am mixing three different patterns in one outfit or, if you count the studded bag as well, four! I never would have done even a year ago! I've had this sparkly striped sweater since before Blondie Boy was born but I've had my flowered Docs since 1995! Talk about shopping in your own closet :)

Booty Up Bootcut Trousers-Hold Your Haunches

I'd attempted to curl my hair before the meeting but it just looked a hot mess so I ended up clipping it back. I'm not a fan of my hair pulled back but what are you going to do. If I asked Blondie Boy how I'd look he'd say "as cool as a cucumber" but that is his general rebuke when you tell him anything is a hot mess :)
I've been dying for a studded bag ever since I feel into lust with Karen's RomyGold Drew Hobo on SMASH last season but since I don't have an extra $500 kicking about I've been looking for a more affordable option. It's not exactly what I wanted but I can fit my iPad in it for meetings and it's inexpensive enough that I don't have to worry about ruining it. Can anyone tell me what the deal is with the extra, non-detachable, long strap though? I've seen it on a lot of bags this season and I just don't get it!
I do love my flowered Docs and I'm trying to find the best way to wear them; back in the day I wore them literally with everything but I feel that when you are 15 you can get away with that but not so much now. Since they are broken in to the extreme they are super comfy so I do want to wear them more often.
The weather in Glasgow has been awful so we've all been rocking boots lately. Even NBH has gotten his own pair of guy's boots from Debenhams and Blondie Boy has sheepskin style boots of his own. It's nice to keep your feet dry and stylish!
NBH had been struggling and really only had either gym shoes or dress shoes so his new boots are a fab inbetween option when he wants to wear something nicer than gym shoes but not shoes he'd wear with a suit. Debenhams actually had a huge range of men's boots on sale so he was spoiled for choice but ended up with these brown leather ankle boots from Red Herring. How cute does BB's tiny boots look next to his Dad's giant boots? Hopefully we'll get a chance to all go out and rock our boots together soon!

Transatlantic Blonde was provided NBH's boots for the purpose of review but he chose them himself. Have you ever tried to get your husband to wear something he didn't want to? All opinions are our own.
