What Mama Wore

what mama wore bell bottoms

I found these photos hiding in a folder on my laptop… they were taken at end of October, when it was still sunny and much less rainy, and before my garden turned into a mud bath!! I rarely seem to wear trousers these days.. once upon a time I wore nothing else. Now I’m a leggings and dress kinda gal… these flares got a rare outing though, teamed with a cute fox top {that is actually supposed to be a pj top…ssssh!}

We had a great weekend, there was an Imbolc gathering at a local art space on Saturday. We popped in for an hour over lunch after art club and before gymnastics, left Lola and Papa there for the afternoon while the little two did gym and I read… then headed back to join them. There were arts and crafts all afternoon, the kiddos had a great time. Home for some dinner, then we headed back for the evening entertainment – poetry and music all night long. It’s a great space, the kiddos are welcome, we can chill out and tonnes of room to run around and play. The evening ended with a huge jam… Kiki has now added a drum set to her birthday wishlist ;) We finally got home around 11.30pm… tired but happy.

Sunday brought about tired kiddos {and Mama and Papa} so we took a stroll to the other side of town, for a visit to the pet shop – which brought tears from a Kiki who really wanted a hamster – and then lunch in the pub. A play in the park, followed by a movie at home and a roast dinner topped off a pretty perfect weekend. Hope you all had a great weekend too xx

    The combination of your hair and that top is just brilliant. Oh, October! It feels so long ago now.

    The top really suits you! The whole outfit has a lovely seventies feel to it, gorge! x

      ha – when G saw me dressed in this, he asked me if we’d gone back in time to the 70s ;)

      It feel so weird to me now to wear jeans – if you’d told me 10 years ago I would live in dresses I’d have laughed!

    Haha love the top and I never would have guessed it was a pyjama one! And I always say it so as you know I love your hair! x

      I think I can get away with the top – well, I can if Kiki doesn’t keep telling everyone lol

    It wasn’t quite dark when I left work yesterday and it’s been sunny 2 days in a row in London! Hopefully spring and some tshirt weather is on the approach! the fox is very sweet x
