After over eight months on maternity leave, I had a meeting with my boss today, to discuss my returning to work. I am not normally one to worry about what I am wearing. I know my body shape and I just go for safe outfits I feel comfortable in. I was definitely going to wear my new Precis Petite dress, but when I started putting my outfit together yesterday afternoon, I started having doubts.
I had a list of things to do longer than my arm for the afternoon. For once, Wriggly was asleep at the same time as Jumpy but I was fretting over what I was going to wear today. Thanks a lot to everyone who took the time to give me their advice and kind words on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter yesterday. You rock, ladies! I love combining yellow and green, and my Martha Jackson earrings have been my favourites for months now.
This morning, I was wondering why I had been worrying about what I was going to wear, and I realised that for the first time in months, I had had some time to myself.
The girls do not normally nap in sync, so I usually make the most of every minute I get to unload the dishwasher, cook, fold the laundry, attempt tidying up, or even have a shower (luxury!). Yesterday, for the first time in months, I paid attention to myself and I am glad I did. I should do it more often. It is nice to make an effort rather than just wearing the same old trousers and tops. Today was a really nice day, full of excitement and chats with colleagues I had not seen in ages and showing Wriggly around.
I was gifted the Precis Petite Spot Print Prom Dress as well as a black shrug with pearl (Jacques Vert Group) dress for my work meeting. All photos and opinions are mine.
