I shall be meeting up with Emma from Bubbablueandme on the train this morning (hopefully!). Once in London I will be meeting Tina from The Soup Dragon Says before heading over to our hotel to meet up with a whole host of lovely bloggers that we’ll be staying with.
Then on to the main event and 2 days of learning new things, catching up with bloggers I’ve met before and hopefully meeting a load of friends for the first time. I’ve got plans to meet up with a number of brands too. I’m excited, nervous and really looking forward to a couple of days of just being me. I’ll miss Monkey terribly, but it will be nice not to have a bag brimming with crayons, drawing books, diggers and tractors for a few days!
I had planned on wearing my standard ‘uniform’ of jeans and a top. But so many friends are dressing up a little bit more, that I thought I’d better make a bit more of an effort!
So off I went to Milton Keynes earlier this week, with some vouchers burning a hole in my pocket!
After having a few false starts with dresses – my heart says fitted, but they just don’t work for me. I’m quite small up top and my hips aren’t! So a fitted dress will fit me around the bust, but I won’t be able to get it over my derriere. Or it will fit me well round my hips and be baggy and saggy around the bust. Either option is a no go 🙁
So once I’d given up on my dream styling, opened my eyes, I walked into John Lewis, averted my eyes as I walked past the handbags (yes I am an addict) and looked at the various concessions. I fell for two dresses, one quite colourful one from Seasalt Cornwall and a blue dress (you know me) from White Stuff.
I had enough vouchers, so I decided to buy both dresses. Couldn’t decide which I liked the best!
So now I have too many outfits to choose from! But I’d much rather have that problem, than have nothing to wear.
So if you spot someone walking around #britmumslive in one of these outfits – say hello – it will be me!
