OUTFIT | Soft pinks and floral prints

summer outfit: pink sweater and floral print midi skirt

Hey, remember that awesome outfit I was planning to wear at Easter, only it was freezing that day, so I ended up wearing jeans instead?

This is that outfit, folks.

Yeah, I know: it was well worth waiting two months for this, wasn’t it? I mean, it’s SO DIFFERENT from the kind of things I normally wear, what with the midi skirt, and the high heels, and that pink sweater that’s never off my back right now, and… oh.

OK, so this definitely isn’t the most exciting outfit I’ve ever worn, and honestly, it was a little too warm for that sweater, really, but still. I wore this last Sunday, which was Terry’s birthday: we spent the afternoon hanging out with the family in his mum’s garden, and eating birthday cake baked by our nephew, George (I totally forgot to take a photo of it, because I was so busy eating it, but it was delicious, trust me…), and then, afterwards I got up and went and rolled around in the daises for a few minutes. No, it wasn’t awkward at all: what makes you think that?

Shortly after the photos below were taken, my brother-in-law got out the lawnmower and cut those daisies DEAD. It was tragic. Also, I really hope he didn’t do it to stop me rolling around in them again? Hmmm.

Anyway, the summer slump has well and truly set in around these parts – and I’m not just talking about my own total lethargy – which means I very much doubt many of you will be around to read this post today, when you could be out enjoying the sunshine (or, alternatively, complaining about the heat) instead, so I’m going to keep this one short, and come and join you. Er, not literally, obviously: that would be weird. Unless you ALSO happen to be a fan of rolling around in random patches of daisies, that is?

    That is one gorgeous skirt! Well…the entire outfit is!
    Remember how they said redheads should not/could not wear pink? You showed them!
    Happy First Day of Summer!

    Notafashionblogger, but even I dragged my husband out to take pictures of me in a field of flowers this spring <3 I'd be rolling around in those too! Heck, I lay in the grass even when the flowers aren't there. Lovely outfit, as always!

    Very pretty in pink. I love daisies in grass, our lawn is currently covered in clover and the bees love it, which is very good for my bee count app.

    Absolutely GORGEOUS pictures! The tiny blue flowers form a constellation. I can relate; ever since warm weather came to my area I am running out of the house far-too-early in the morning (nothing’s open) and they opened a new Barbeque restaurant virtually next door, so the wonderful smells from that tempt me at dusk. One of the reasons I enjoy your posts is to remind myself: CLOTHES! No tour of restaurants, must fit in pretty clothes!

    I love seeing all the pretty outfits. I would love to know if you’re satisfied with chicwish and their shipping/quality.

AD | We’re spending a few days at @highlandheatherlodges in beautiful Perthshire, for what Terry is optimistically referring to as his ‘birthday week’. (I say ‘optimistically’ - we’re only here for three days, and his birthday was yesterday, but don’t stop believing, Terry!)⁣
There’s a hot tub for us and a playpark for Max, so needless to say, we’re having a fantastic time, and I’m already dreading having to leave. Today’s big question: can I pass as an under-12, so I qualify for a pony ride at the nearby wildlife centre? 🤔 (On second thoughts, don’t answer that one...)⁣

AD | Time for a quick game of “Where’s Amber?”⁣
It’s another rainy Monday, so I’m throwing it back to our trip to @universalorlando ‘s amazing Volcano Bay water park last month. I’m a bit of a scaredy when it comes to water flumes, but this park had tons of stuff for pretty much everyone: plenty of rides for me, and an amazing splash pad for Max 👶In fact, I’d still be on The Fearless River right now if I possibly could be. Still, doing the laundry and turning the heating on will be just as good, right? Right?! 🌋 🏊‍♀️ .

Good news! We took Max to hospital this morning, and saw two different surgeons, who agreed there was no need to go ahead with the surgery as his lip is healing really well on its own 😅  He’ll definitely have a scar, unfortunately, but that would’ve been the case whether he’d had the surgery or not, and if it turns out to be worse than anticipated, we’ll have the option to have it corrected under local anaesthetic when he’s older. ⁣
I’m still really upset that this happened in the first place, obviously, but so relieved that we don’t have to put him through a general anaesthetic, and just incredibly grateful that it wasn’t anything worse. I know some parents have to deal with much more serious stuff than this, and my heart goes out to you all: it’s been a rough couple of days, and I’m really grateful to everyone who took the time to comment on yesterday’s post - your stories were so comforting when I was panicking yesterday ❤️ ⁣
(Old photo, obviously: every time Max sees the selfie camera, he thinks it’s going to be one of those filters where you open your mouth and something happens 😂)⁣

Totally unrelated photo, but we’ve just spent the morning in Accident & Emergency with Max, who fell on the path outside the house and split his lip open 😥 ⁣
They tried to stitch it up at A&E, but it was totally impossible with him awake, so they’ve booked him in to have it done under general anaesthetic tomorrow ... Max is absolutely fine: the bleeding stopped quickly, he doesn’t seem to be in pain, and is just his normal, happy little self. I, on the other hand, am a complete wreck: the plastic surgeon he saw today reckons if we don’t have it fixed, his lip will be crooked when it heals, but I’m absolutely *terrified* of the thought of my baby having to have a GA. ⁣
If you’re a long-time follower, you might know that I have a full-blown phobia of general anaesthetic (I literally had an elective c-section in order to eliminate the possibility of an emergency one, which might have had to be done under GA), so I just can’t get my head to accept that it’s safe and he’ll be fine 😥 ⁣
Positive stories and advice very welcome: I’m just so terrified, I can’t even imagine how to get through the next 24 hours 😥😥😥

#throwbackthursday to last week, when I needed a sunhat and SPF 50 to leave the house, rather than the current raincoat and wellies situation. Can you tell the post-holiday blues are still in full swing over here? 🌧 .

I posted this on Stories over the weekend, but he looked so cute in it I figured it deserved a spot on the grid, too! This is Max all ready for his friend Eleah’s 1st birthday party on Saturday: despite the jetlag and his continuing obsession with doors of all kinds (He had an entire soft play at his disposal, but he mostly just wanted to open and close the gate into it...) he had an absolute ball, and spent the whole drive home shouting, “HAPPY! HAPPY!” Thanks to @thestirlingstyle for a great party 🥳 🎈 🎉 . (Oh, and that’s his hairbrush in his hand - boy likes to look his best 😉)
