Mrs duck

Hello, anybody out there?? Didnt think so. ;) Please accept my sincerest apologies for neglecting my poor blog of late. Ive been very busy with my kiddo starting kindergarten and behold a few weeks later we all came down with the worst cold ever! Im still on the mend but feeling better everyday. So there you have it, the joys of having a kid in kindergarten, Im looking forward dreading whats next. ;) Im back at work and did manage to get dressed as well. ;) hehehee

So todays featured animal is the duck! :) Must keep up my wardrobezoo roll you know. ;) The skirt is from White Stuff, one of my favourite British brands. :) If you havent visited their store in Edinburgh you definitely should, the changing rooms are so much fun and like nothing you have seen before. ;)

 And speaking of White Stuff stores, Im actually planning on visiting one next week as Im off to Copenhagen, Denmark!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Im soooo excited you wouldnt believe it *jumping up and down* My sister and I are leaving husbands and kids at home and are treating ourselves a long weekend of shopping and relaxation (sleep yay!). Neither of us have been to Copenhagen before, its gonna be so much fun exploring the city and not to forget the shops. Shopping spree anyone? ;) It will be the first time Im away from my little one for a longer period of time, Im wondering how thats gonna feel. At least she will be safe and sound with her daddy taking good care of her. :)

Do you fancy White Stuff as well? :) Do let me know! :)

In the midi hour

Ah, I think I have found the perfect midi skirt! Midi skirts are one of my favourite items to wear, makes me feel all ladylike and elegant. :) I sometimes wish I was living in the 1940-50s when it was fashion and mandatory for women to wear skirt and dresses with a decent length. :) Not sexy you say? Well I beg to differ, its sexy in a more subtle way ( which I prefer anyway). ;)

Full and twirly, just my cup of tea! :) Ive dressed it down rather casually this time around, but I cant wait to play with it some more, endless ways of styling it I believe. :)

And it has pockets, yay! :) So where can you get this beauty you might ask. Its from H&M actually, I encountered it on the sale online, never seen it in the stores. And did I mention, its perfect to hide any post pregnancy baby bump and similar lumps. ;) Full score in my book! :)

This week Im on vacation or should I rather say staycation. :) Im off work for three weeks as my little girl is starting nusery/kindergarden. Today was her first day and it went rather badly. Lots of tears and she didnt feel at home at all with the other children and staff. :( Hopefully she will come around by the end of my vacation, it takes time to adjust from spending the days at home to the hustle and bustle at the nursery. Its really good for her to get out and spend some time with other children I believe. I didnt attend nursery when I grew up as there werent any and I was terrified of the other kids when I started preschool. In the end my shyness led me to be bullied by the other children, a fate I certainly dont wish for my little girl.

Outfit details:

Cardigan from B-Young
Tank top from H&M
Jeans skirt from H&M (recent)
Shoes from Ilse Jacobsen

Summer in the name of maxis

Another maxi who would have thought? ;) Its been one HOT summer beating all previous records. Never ever have we had so many days with 30 C, its like living in southern Europe I imagine. :) Even worse cause we are not used to this heat up north and swealtering away. :) Surely this weather calls for a maxi! :)

This maxi is from Boden (surprise!), the summer collection 2013. I bought it last year when I was heavily pregnant so this is the first time Im wearing it. Instant love!

Well I reckon my collection of Boden maxis will continue to grow, they are just perfect in every way. :) Im wearing a UK 8L and the length is super! :) A maxi is the perfect summer wear I think. :)

What Im wearing:

Maxi dress from Boden (SS 2013)
Sandals from Fly London

I  have to tell you my little pumpkin just turned 1 year  two weeks ago. :) I still remember the day she was born like it was yesterday. Funny that. ;)

Love you to the moon and back little sunshine! :) <3 <3 <3
