This week I’m yet again a bit of a hit and miss blogger. That’s not usually my style. I’m ordered, disciplined and prolific. But then I strained a muscle in my back and everything hurt. Particularly sitting at a laptop. So I did what I could and was okay with that. Keen to get back into this week I was sure to edit all my pics, prepare my week and then I got sick.

Hello stomach bug you lovely thing {said no one ever}. It was a little set back from my goals of getting back on that horse. I’m trying to be zen about it. But I’m not a very zen person most of the time. So here is my feeble attempt at an outfit post, with some of those edited photos from last week. I love this outfit. The wedges with the maxi. The pop of red against the black and blue. The chambray. I’m all about the chambray.

When Hubby demanded something interesting to do, after days of whining and back massage requests, I couldn’t deny him. So we donned some gear and got some dinner.  This is an easy peasy date night outfit. There’s nothing to pull or squish or hurt. It’s bright, soft and subtly sexy. You can’t argue with that. Even when most of the evening was spent with a grimace on my face or a vodka in my hand. WHAT?! It was medicinal! In the end it was as successful night. Hubby felt validated and appreciated and I felt better.

Date nights, do you do them? What do you wear?

    I just bought the same shoes this week! Love them! Just need to get used to walking in them. Do you find them stable when you walk? You look freaking fantastic for being in so much pain. You are a tough cookie.

    • They are AWESOME. I’ve worn them out on the town on numerous occasions now and they are like a dream. Nice and squishy and only after 6 or so hours did the balls of my feet start to hurt. SUCH a win.

      Thank you. I don’t know about tough. Silly probably. 😉

        Yay! I am going to give them a crack at work tomorrow. It’s a short shift for me, so I figure a good chance to see how I go

        • Oooo how are you going!? Let me know. At least a short shift will fly by if they don’t feel great. Haha.

            Totally wussed out because it looked like rain. Didn’t want to slip over. I am such a sissy. He he. Wil have to test drive them over the weekend.

  • Awwww you need some GATORADE!
    Feel better soon hot stuff. xxx

    • I do. I need ALL the GATORADES. And I asked for some but Kel got me the Hyrdalite icypoles instead. Not a bad compromise. Thank hun. I’m feeling better already. What a shit fortnight though!!

  • Red + black + chambray can never go wrong.

    Hope you´re feeling better and next week can go back to your rocking blog rutine!

    • Never ever ever.

      I’m feeling better already. Thank goodness. I appreciate your wishes.
