~ OUTFIT DETAILS ~
DRESS: JOY THE STORE*
BAG: ELLEN AND JAMES
SHOES: FAITH (so old - is Faith even still a thing???)
Why hello friends, and isn’t this truly shocking, I’ve written a blog post. I spent weeks (that’s a lie, more like a hot minute) with my fingers dangling over the keyboard wondering what I should type about. At the moment, I got nothing. So, lo and behold, I’m going to throw it back to an old-school blog post, where I ramble incessantly about probably nothing and talk about clothes.
Okay, so first up, mini life/house update. Since basically life = sorting out mortgage applications. Speaking of which, ours has just been approved. When you’re going through the house buying process, which eventually I’ll write a full post on, there is so much to do. You have to send every document imaginable to your mortgage advisor, who are lifesavers, along with your left kidney. Then to the solicitor, you have to send them another massive pile of documents and make big life decisions with it. It's crackers. Anyway, it’s now all in and we’re making good progress on that front.
Speaking of which, in regards to the actual build, as I realise I haven’t update you folks on here, we are slated to move in November/December of this year now, instead of summer 2018. Excited? Abso-flippin-lutely. Overwhelmed? You betcha bottom dollar. Though saying that, with the run of good weather we’ve been having, our builder said yesterday it may be even sooner than that. MADNESS.
Let’s also discuss this dress, because this is a total show stopper. Wedding season is here in full swing, and luckily I only have one to attend. I say luckily because I normally have none and I LOVE a wedding. I adore the open back detail, which means no bra, aka a massive win for me. It’s very pretty, especially if your weddings are church-based and fairly modest. But the feel, the cut and basically every aspect I am so into.
The most important aspect, however? It has pockets!!!!! I nearly wept with joy.
Healthwise, I’m doing pretty well. I’ve been able to get to the gym a lot after a couple of weeks off, and whilst I say I don’t want to go, I’m always pretty happy that I’ve gone. I’m big into weights at the moment and building up a bit more. I’ve finally found a good routine, which is a relief. I've lost some weight recently and I feel markedly better about myself too.
Other updates - I've been nominated for the Northern Blog Awards in Best Fashion & Style. Truly, there was no one more shocked than me. It felt amazing that after 7 years of writing on this page, I get a little bit of validation. Awards aren't everything, I know, but it makes me so happy to be even nominated. If you fancy voting for me, the link is here. I'll pay you in snacks.
How are you all doing?? Update me, please!
