I wanted to start this thread but I see Remus has been having some fun with some spamming person targeting old "WAYW" threads......hopefully this one doesn't get hijacked.

It has been a surprisingly gloriously sunny day here and I have therefore forced encouraged my DCs to be out at the park and then stay outside in the garden. I have been rocking some Alys Fowler chic whilst weeding the flower beds and trying not to get pathetically excited about the remote possibility of spring hmm

faded TopShop Martha's
navy & white striped mini dress (Anthropologie)
navy slouchy roll neck jumper (H&M)
brown knee high boots (Toast)
emerald green scarf (H&M)

accessorised with the gardener's de rigueur large cup of tea wink.

Oh yeah, I was knobbing about with spreadsheets all day, now I'm fighting the good fight and trying to get the kids to bed.

Ooh, lots of glamour here in the Sparkles house! I've been wearing (hope you don't get jealous)

Old grey track suit bottoms,
Blue long sleeved t-shirt - New Look
Bleach stained, wooly zip up hoody, with faux fur lining (it's hideous but ever so warm and actually is DH's but he hates it).

I have been painting the fence.

ruby you star. Deep cleaning of the kitchen required here too but figured there would be plenty of crappy days ahead to do that.

Amber good luck with DCs wink. Love the sound of your work outfit, BTW.

Can highly recommend the Sainsburys one remus

Thanks Amber but the only local Sainsbo's that does clothes in the Town That God Forgot and I'd be taking my life in my hands to go there. I love broderie, but not enough to face the Grey Zombies In Leggings in The Town That God Forgot. smile

Humph. Today I wore a navy blue suit with a flippy skirt, flesh coloured sheer tights and navy Van Dal court shoes with a green/white floral per una top underneath. I was in court. Tomorrow I'll be wearing the similar grey one with a pinky per una top and on Wednesday, possibly a black trouser suit and proper blouse sad. All with comfy van dal or Gabor shoes because of having to use effing public transport and walk ten times more than usual.
