Kat  Fashion writer trying to straddle the line between mutton & frump. Musings found on my blog.

Inspiration πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š And it has to be purely inspiration as this is Dior and I'd probably have to sell both kidneys and all three children to fund a purchase πŸ˜‚ However I have sought out some high street options on the blog now. I've also come to the conclusion that I would probably look like a prize tit wafting around the supermarket in this get up so I'll probably do either or. And we've already agreed that you can never have too many biker jackets. And one on red? Sign me up right now. Thanks to those who forwarded me this pic saying they thought it was v me. IT IS!!!!

Saturday night out out. And now it's definitely Sunday morning in in. I am trying to bribe one of my children to bring me a cup of coffee and they are stubbornly refusing. A moment of epic parenting fail 😩😩 In other news I have found a series of Law & order SVU that I appear not to have seen. Never let it be said I am not scintillatingly interesting πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ These shoes I LOVE. I got them in the dregs of the zara sale about 3yrs ago and are two different sizes. I had to beg them to sell them to me πŸ˜‚ #ootd #wiwt #outout #fashion #fblogger

Especially a tache free one. Amazing 40th party @mdunders oh and by the way, the 12 yr old told me me "there's no way she's 40. She looks miles younger than just 4 years younger than you". So you are now officially dead to me, ok? And dear 12 yr old, there is a dishwasher with your name on it, that needs emptying πŸ˜‚ #oldcow #fml #birthday #whoeversaidhangingoutwithyoungerpeopleisagoodidealied

Yes my top lip is now as red as my bag 😩😩😩 See Insta stories for the details of why. You know those days when you just shouldn't bother? HELLO TODAY!!! But I have amazing new jumper and am about to pour myself a medicinal g&t and do my hair. ANY tips make up wise to hide the redness which is (funnily enough) getting redder by the minute (and no I don't have any green concealer πŸ˜©πŸ™„) On the upside I am hair free. I now have a red skin tache instead of a hairy one πŸ™„ #ootd #wiwt #navy #star #cashmere #saturday #fashion #fblogger

This. Times a billion. And that's in the past hour 😩😩 Some people don't have any children like this. I have two who don't in any way shape or form. But clearly someone up there thought we could handle MUCH more than we actually can, when he kindly sent us one of our children. The level of determination from children with Aspergers never fails to impress and depress me at the same time. It's the refusal to do pretty much anything followed by extensive negotiation that you can't explain to people (and this comes down to sitting at the table to eat. "Why can't I eat it on the sofa?" "Because you might spill it" "I won't" "you might" "I won't" "because it's the civilised thing to sit at the table when we eat" "why?" "So that we can have a conversation" "I haven't got anything to say to you" "but we want to talk to you" "but I don't want to listen to you".... πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ (he's nothing if not honest!) But this is FOR EVERYTHING. Cleaning teeth, putting socks on ("why do we have to wear socks?" That's always a good one.) And it's not because he's being arsey. In his head he Does Not Want to do x, y or z and so will argue the toss as to why he has to. And genuinely doesn't see why he should have to. Oh, and also he will requestion everything on a daily basis. And the worst thing, I can't explain why you have to do most things. Because we're all robots and we JUST DO. πŸ˜³πŸ˜³πŸ˜‚(I May have said that once or twice). Why do we have to wear socks? ("You don't" he says to me.. "it's part of your uniform" "but I don't wear a jumper every day and that's part of the uniform") So today we've had brushing hair (or not), having a shower, doing your homework, eating at the table and I can't remember what else as frankly I need gin. Coffee will have to do πŸ˜‚πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ AND I'm out tonight... WHOOOOPP. #sendcoffee #aspergersmumsunite #quote #quoteoftheday #instaquote

There is simply nothing that trainers don't work with (of course there will be some of you that don't agree but personally I LOVE them). Trainers I can find in abundance, there are simply too many amazing ones out there. BUT nude sandals? OMG rocking horse poo. I've done a blog on them. I want to find a pair I love. I'd sell a child to fund a pair I love if they're expensive (this is assuming I'd get more than 20p for either of my boys who are making the world's biggest song and a dance about going to bed. Which has reminded me why I love to go out on a Friday night πŸ˜©πŸ˜‚) Did I find the perfect pair? All the details on the blog now. Link in bio #newblogpost #ootd #wiwt #fashion

That's my "thank chuff it's Friday smile"... only got to do swimming and take 10yr old to a movie night at school even though I've just found out cricket starts tonight... when you ask the husband to do one thing. "Ask your friend (the coach) when cricket starts please". When no answer was forthcoming, I assumed that obviously it wouldn't, therefore, be this evening. "I forgot to let you know". πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ˜©πŸ˜©πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ˜© Excellent. Just excellent. So he either has to miss movie night or first cricket practise. However I have excelled myself. I've just found another cricket club that doesn't start until the first weekend in May, that BOTH boys can go to (otherwise I'd be doing one on Friday and one on Sunday morning....). I may even have a small g&t to celebrate. And in other much more exciting news, am embracing the gingham. It's all about the navy today.. #gingham #navy #friday #fashion #fashionblogger

Such a lovely night out with the girls. And the sandals are out, I repeat, the sandals are out. First outing of the year πŸ‘Š This bag, i have had for 8yrs now and it's still one of my favourites. So fabulous, I've never been tempted to get another tan clutch, which, by the way, are the most useful clutches ever... is it Friday today, please say it's Friday? #ootd #wiwt #outout #fashionblogger #fblogger #fashion #thursdaynight

One of those days that is actually ridiculously productive. Well, in the research sense and now I just have to do the writing bit i.e. the actual work.. πŸ˜‚ Lovely day in London though and better crack on as out tonight with the girls! What day is it again? Is anyone totally confused about what day it is? I think it's a day that calls for wine though, no? Actually I've just been sat here, nervously waiting as my two (to me, v small still!) boys walked home from school on their own 😱 I meet them at school, give them money for the "tuck shop" (tiny little sweet shop on their walk!) and usher them on their way. Resisting the temptation to drive behind them... A nervous wait (it's less than a mile with only one road to cross) as apparently "it took ages to choose what we wanted with the not very much money you gave us" πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ A little bit of freedom for them and a few more grey hairs for me. In other news, this was THE Best Buy three years ago, this black military blazer from Zara. Get theeselves onto eBay. Not to mention this skirt which is possibly the best thing I have ever bought from M&S. And the tee, and the boots.. can you tell I love this outfit?? πŸ˜‚ #ootd #wiwt #fashion #fblogger #fashionblogger

It took kissing a lot of dress frogs but finally found one that is pretty darn good. And AND IT HAS POCKETS!!!!! It also looks fabulous with a military jacket over the top and obvs the obligatory bikers. Loose with a bit of shape, what could be better for hols? And seeing as so many dresses look pants on me (all the grim pics on Insta stories for everyone to see), when you find a dress that works, buy it. #dress #changingroom #summerwhereareyou #spring #fashion

Even the walls in Folkestone were pretty cool. Definitely a good day out. Sequins and a slogan tee and jeans. Makes a change from a blazer. Now I'm a printed tee fan but if you prefer a printed top, I've dug deep and have some over on the blog now. Link in bio #newblogpost #ootd #wiwt #seaside

Mackerel! When by the seaside... It's so amazing the difference driving for an hour can make. Feel like we've had a day's holiday (it doesn't take much to be fair..) We even had French radio on the way down here πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #lunch #food #foodie #fish
