I am so pleased when I find little vintage gems such as these - two Clydella toddler shirts, made in Britain. Audrey tries them on for size, accessorising with my Maison Scotch bow tie.

At top: I needed a coat for outings with the girls (including Lucy's soccer games), and didn't have any luck finding a traditional parka. This one is made of sweatshirting material, and is rather cosy. It's also deceptively heavy, which makes it feel more like a coat than an oversized sweatshirt. Even the sales girl was surprised when I handed it to her at checkout.
Middle: These pants look more crazy on the model than they do in my closet! I wore these a month back to an engagement party and received quite a few comments. People also felt compelled to touch them (did they think for one minute I was actually wearing them?). Fun.
Bottom: Sequin shorts. Yes. I did consider that in six months time I will be 40 (shhh), but with a white t shirt and plain coloured Bensimons in summer I think they could be very wearable. Plus quite a few runs around the block beforehand.
I stopped in at a local clothing boutique yesterday and left feeling underwhelmed. There was either nothing very interesting (apart from coloured jeans), or knitwear that was all sewn merino so something I could have done myself. I can't wait to get back sewing properly.
If you have ever been pregnant you might agree with me when I say the worst part of the waiting is when the due date is nearing. This is exactly how I feel about the house now. All of a sudden it's become almost unbearable. I know it will all be worth it, but it's definitely time to return to normality.
Edit: No! I am not pregnant! (My analogy has obviously been read differently by others.)

I find it rather funny how skateboarders and scooterers now need to cohabit skatepark bowls with toddlers on plastic trikes. I know it grates them immensely (i've witnessed painted evidence of this). However, today at our local, this dude next to Audrey was very accommodating. What a good sport.
