“after years of staying at home with my kids i began to “let myself go”. i started this to motivate myself to just get dressed – put a few minutes into myself to feel better for the whole day! if you are finding yourself in this same situation, i want to encourage you to join us – this really works! take a look at all the other ladies joining me – real women wearing real clothes!”
This sums up exactly why I take part, and if you feel like you are sliding into a rut, I heartily suggest you take part, too!
Summer is on its way, and the weather today was a teaser of what’s to come – the kids thought it was great to pull out the summer clothes, and I have to say I pretty glad, too, since it gave me a chance to try out these new heels. It’s a bit hard to see in the pic, but they have a cool basketweave panel that just screams summer, and after a day on my feet, I can confirm that they are super comfy.

I had to show up in court for jury duty, and I honestly couldn’t decide if the timing was good or bad – we’re in school holidays at the moment, so it was probably more convenient, but a shame for the kids. Luckily, I wasn’t selected and was in the first group to be let go, so it didn’t end up being a problem after all. The ponte jacket was a fantastic buy: the ponte knit is comfortable but polished, the neckline is unusual, and the navy and fine white stripe is a classic print with a modern spin since it is horizontal instead of vertical (sounds little but makes a huge difference). I actually wanted it when it first came to stores, but they had sold out on my size, but it then turned up 80% off in their online outlet – super score!
