What I Wore Wednesday: Cincinnati Chic

I'm going to be totally honest; I've not taken a single outfit photo this week. I travelled down to Manchester on Wednesday for a work event that went really well but after being "on" all night when really I was still pretty upset just left me emotionally drained by the time I got home. I came back up on Thursday and didn't get out of sweats really until yesterday for Blondie Boy's parent teacher conference (beside apparently trying to bring home Playdough daily he's a super star natch).

I wore my faux leather ponte dress again for work but again didn't snap a single photo. It's not exactly professional to ask a colleague to take a picture of your outfit and I was going to snap one in the hotel elevator but it was so dark in there it wouldn't have worked. I wore an oversized cream sweater with black leggings and my new spiky shoes yesterday but again, no photo. 

I'm still in a bit of a funk about being stuck here; I've heard this afternoon that my application has been given a caseworker but security checks still have to happen and that could take 7 days. I'm not sure what other processes take place after that but it's good to know something is happening. I'm really grateful to my MP's office for helping out by phoning to find out what's going on (the general public can't).

I've been Facetiming with my Grandma and for the most part it has been great (especially the part where she asked my Mom how old I was and then insisted I only looked 28!) but it is also really hard to see her get upset and say she missed me or ask when I'm going to come and visit her. My Mom has told me there isn't much I can do and if I was there I'd be doing the same as FT but in person but it's still rough. I'd like to be there to help support her as much as to see my Grandma. Hopefully my application will be sorted soon but even once it's decided it could be another 20 days after that.

Tomorrow night I'm going to the Debenhams SS13 Show in Glasgow so that is something to look forward to and keep my mind off of things I really can't control. So since I am beyond rubbish this week I give you a photo a a little boy who's always styling:




Zip Hat-Gap Kids
Cincinnati Shirt-MiCA 12/v
Skinny Jeans- Marks and Spencer Indigo
Boots-Next

I don't know who bought Blondie Boy these skinny jeans but they crack me up; he's such a skinamarink that even skinny jeans are a bit baggy on him. He definitely looks better in skinny jeans than I do! Are there any adult trends that you find funny on children?

I lived in Manchester for almost a year so I noticed your mention of it. Good old Manc.


I hear you on how hard it is to get outfit shots in sometimes - it's been frigidly cold here and I just never feel like going outside with my camera! I think the blogging world forgives us :)

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

He is such a cutie! I love skinny jeans on my boys too. :)

Melaina25 said...

Gorgeous outfit on your little one! My outfit this week includes my toddler in her outfit too! She's wearing a Gap hat as well, they have some great kids clothes :) x

Melaina25 said...

Sorry to hear your news.


As always though, he does look scrummy x

Melaina25 said...

Your little man is just so darn adorable! Here's hoping all the red tape gets cleared away and you get to go see your gran very soon!!! ~Sarah

Melaina25 said...

I'm sorry this is such a frustrating process :( I love the skinny jeans on him! Both Finn and Lila only wear skinny jeans, I love them!

Melaina25 said...

I'm so sorry that you're still having problems with your passport what an absolute pain. Fingers crossed that it won't be much longer now! As for BB he looks adorable as always! Love him in skinny jeans :-)

Melaina25 said...

I really hope that things get sorted for you to be able to go and see your Grandma soon, it must be so hard. Thinking of you both. BB is sooo gorgeous and very cool! My three year old refuses to wear jeans and she has some gorgeous stella for gap ones handed down from her very trendy cousin! x

Melaina25 said...

Melaina25 said...

I know hopefully this is me getting my mojo back!

Melaina25 said...

I see bloggers with these gorgeous backgrounds for shots---I'm lucky it NBH takes two options on our front porch lol.

Melaina25 said...

Aah! I love his little skinny jeans. He definitely looks better in them than I do too! :)

Melaina25 said...

Your poor Grandma. It must be so hard being so far away..

I can't think of any trends on kids which look funny just now.. I suppose it depends on the child! X

Melaina25 said...

That little dud can brighten any one's day. It's not an adult trend...but I love little girls in those tutu dresses. Puts a smile on my face every time. Fingers crossed that your application is expedited!!

Aren't little boys the cutest in skinny jeans!

Thanks for the link up!

Melaina25 said...

That sucks that you can't get away to see your Grandma faster. Thank heavens for FT. I never knew how great it was till my husband started travelling for 2 weeks/month. We use it non stop. It is so much better than a phone, but still not the same as being there.

Melaina25 said...

Maybe it's just me I just think some adult trends look silly on kiddies.

Melaina25 said...

He's got a teeny, tiny tush which helps lol.
