organising, scheming, and masterminding....
The event was my Sister-in-laws 30th Birthday - and her hubby and I decided a little "surprise party" could be just the ticket....
So a lunch time booking was made for a lovely little Italian Resturant that very good family friends run in Country Victoria....
When packing the night before - I had focused so much on invites, rsvp's, catering, balloons, and a gift, that my own attire was left till the last minute. A quick survey of my wardrobe and I thought this bright dress would be ideal. I quickly tried it on, added a belt, snapped a few pics (I now trust pictures over the mirror!) and was done. It's a silk dress, but surprisingly very easy and comfy to wear. It has two cute little front pockets (essential for mothers!) and i love the little gathered sleeve and zipper right down the middle!
Linking up with Kym for "fancy pants" - get out of those trackies - just for a day (or an hour!) and take a snap and link up so we can share our fashion finds, tips and tricks. I'm even including my hubby and kids today! Although I didn't get a picture of myself on the actual day (as i was the one taking all the photos!) My tip for this outfit, was the decision to wear flats - so practical given I was chasing my kids and my neices around!!
