Yesterday I took part in Silent Sunday – my week in one picture and no words and here was my picture..
Some of you you, in fact most of you, correctly guessed that these dresses were my long shortlist of what to wear to CyberMummy next week! Although I’ll never know how so many of you guessed, I’ve hardly mentioned my quest for a perfect dress at all on Twitter *cough*
Okay so that might be a lie. I have been looking for the perfect outfit for weeks now and I know that I’m not the only one. And hey, I’m not going to apologise for being such a girl! Yes, it doesn’t matter what I wear on the day, no, nobody will even remember what I wear blah blah blah but do you know what? It matters to me. I’m not stressing about looking good enough – in fact quite the opposite! I love clothes and I love shopping so what a fabulous excuse for me to indulge in looking at and buying pretty dresses. Call me vain but I care about my appearance and that is no bad thing, surely? I would put as much effort into choosing what to wear for lunch with friends in real life so why wouldn’t I go to the same effort for the biggest date in the parenting blogging calendar? In fact, deciding what I am going to wear is actually part of the fun and excitement for me!
It is going to be a long day which is why I have chosen my usual ‘uniform’ of a maxi dress as that’s how I feel the most comfortable. I still haven’t decided which of the dresses I am going to wear in case you were wondering and they are in fact still hanging on the wardrobe door for me to ponder over every time I go into the bedroom. And yes, I probably do have too much time on my hands if I spend so long thinking about dresses 😉
But I have made one decision though and that is on my shoes! So my feet will be looking something like this on Saturday..
..so if I don’t make my mind up, I might just be wearing these and an artistically placed iPad 😉
