Planning a Pool Party - Gingham Style.

It's that time of the year again when I celebrate my annual 26th birthday. I forecast that it will be a warm, sunny day and since the pool is freshly cleaned a pool party is in order. I always have a birthday party theme and force my family to humour me and dress up. This year will be Gingham Style - yes I have joined the latest pop dance craze, who hasn't? This is the photo on my facebook invite:
I sourced the photo by googling Gingham Style on google images. I can't be bothered to find the link and yet I typed all this up.

 I really like this two piece from ASOS but I think I left it too late for it to arrive by next Saturday. I might still order it if it's available in my size.

This should hide my stretch marks courtesy of Bubby.

I like this dress if it weren't for the little peep hole.

Loving these capri pants.


This is probably what I'll end up wearing if it's available in my size. It's from Myer by Miss Shop. If this doesn't work I'll have to wear a table cloth as a sarong.

While I have been able to pass myself off as not a day older than 26 for years, I believe those days are over. I feel and look like I have aged 10 years since going back to work. Next year I might consider turning 30 or getting botox.

  2. You must be like Samantha in Bewitched or Jeannie or something! Blink or wrinkle your nose and it's done. Recipe please, worded for dummies, Julia Child tends to waffle on a bit

  3. Hello Bubbys Mum, found this via FF's blog. I too am trying to embrace baby induced sleep deprivation. I love those gingham pants too, i am increasingly drawn to a patterned pant. Good old asos.
