True story time ~ don’t try to work with children when you are in a tight jam!

Also, we don’t have buttercups… Just a lush field of greenery, dotted with brilliant yellow dandelions and fluffy, itchy-as-all-heck, seeding grass to stand in.

Yesterday I had planned to get ready, do an outfit shoot, then go and do the grocery shopping. Everything was comfortably rolling along until I realised that I’d forgotten about my first Pilates class of the year ~ and that was happening in half an hour! I had exactly thirty minutes to get these photos done… Argh!  (◉ Д ◉)

I swiped on my new favourite lipstick, grabbed the Mister, the camera and the children {somewhat in that order!} and headed across the road to take some pictures.

Then of course, there was my genius idea to get some photos of Belle and do a Mother & Daughter post ~ mostly because every day she is looking so much more adorably grown up, and less and less like my little baby girl. But working with children is tricky at the best of times, and we were on such a short time constraint that it made it a hard to get a good picture.

I think I might have to do an outtakes post sometime soon, and include some photos from this shoot because there were a few hilarious shots where Belle was just like “Nope! I’m out of here!” and all we have are blurry pictures of her back as she takes off. This was even after she very seriously informed me with her arms all crossed that she “had to get dressed’n {dressed and ready} for de day, n’ take some photos for my shog too Mummy” while I was getting ready. Haha! Whoops, I think she’s a bit young for blogging just yet!  ◟(• ε •๑)◞ ₎₎ ₎₎

When came the time for taking those photos ~ she naturally had other ideas about what she should be doing ~ namely, playing with her big brother and running about the place! We managed to get a few snaps, then I dashed back to the house, scrambled into my gym gear and went to Pilates with a full face of makeup ~ which, to be honest, I don’t normally do unless I’ve already been out for the morning.

I prefer not to wear makeup when working out as I don’t want to clog up my skin when the product mixes with perspiration! Not a nice feeling at all…

However, I was pleasantly surprised that it all stayed perfectly in place, and my face didn’t get shiny at all, so when I got home I simply changed, then went to the shops as originally planned.  *phew!* A bit of a topsy-turvy day, but these things happen.

It was a good thing that I had a cute, easy to wear outfit that I could throw on and off. My hair flower is a beautiful pastel rainbow rose confection {try saying that five times fast!} from Daisy Jean Floral Designs and I love it so much! When it came in the mail, I promptly clipped it to the towel turban I was wearing as my hair dried, because sometimes I’m far too excited to wait to wear my new pretties! ‘‘\(*≧▽≦)ノシ・✧*:゚

I love how well it goes with another wardrobe favourite ~ this top is the Rio blouse in Lilac Rose Gingham from Vivien of Holloway, and it’s pretty much the best thing ever.

I’ve been wearing it just about non-stop this summer, and it has proven to be an extremely versatile piece. The style of the blouse is easy to wear with circle skirts, or pants, and another favourite pairing is with my Vivien of Holloway capris.

Plus, a great bonus for nursing mothers ~ the ties at the neckline undo and allow really easy access for breastfeeding, which is another reason that I’ve been loving this top a lot. And how can you go past the darling lilac gingham with sweet pink roses scattered all over it? It’s really my favourite fabric ever ~ I wish I had yards of it to make myself a couple of dresses, a skirt or two and more blouses from it!

Do you have a favourite quick and easy outfit uniform? Mine is definitely a dress of some sort, or a skirt and top, but that’s only if the blouse is easy to wear. I don’t like wearing a blouse that is fussy, like if you have to keep tucking it in, or it doesn’t allow for a full range of movement easily. Or worse ~ the fabric isn’t comfortable! As a whole, I prefer knit tops to blouses, but not in the case of the Rio top which is easy to move in and comfortable as well as being cute! Also, a great peasant blouse is definitely for the win. ☆(*ゝω・*)
