Chicken Pox And The New Season At GAP

Friday, 7 February 2014

Being a mum certainly has it's ups and downs... there's good days and bad days, crazy fun days and dare I say it boring days. There are also days when I wonder if I've got what it takes! Right now Tabitha has the inevitable, but dreaded, Chicken Pox and it's heartbreaking watching her break out in spots all over her body and not being able to do much to help. She's itchy and grumpy and understandably fed up, and in turn as we're all stuck in the house under quarantine, we're all fed up!

On the whole, thanks to ice lollies and disney films we're surviving the experience so far, but we're not over the worst of it yet I fear. It's probably only a matter of time too until Sam catches it. Wish me  (and my sanity) luck!

So where possible, I've been escaping into a corner with my laptop when I need a break. Despite all the rain I'm definitely sensing a change in the light at the moment and I'm getting excited about spring.  I like spring, as I think it's a time you can be more playful with your clothes. Everyone is feeling happy after the worst of the winter, and has a spring in their step (no pun intended!). Therefore with this mindset, I felt brave enough to go for these GAP jeans (which as an added bonus were in the sale at £14.99!). So far I've worn them out to dinner, with black heels and a blazer, and although I felt a bit nervous at first as they're a bit bolder than I'd normally wear, the outfit looked good. I'm also looking forward to wearing them when the weather warms up, rolled up a little at the ankle, with some sandals, and maybe a GAP essential grey v-neck tee and sunnies.

I really wanted these jeans, but they sold out too quickly. I took too long deciding if it was a trend I could pull off and I missed my chance! D'oh!

Continuing my denim craze at the moment I love this faded dip-dye shirt - I actually just got a similar one from Forever 21 which I love and have been wearing with everything. 

And then to go with all this denim I'm buying, this jumper is a great little spring find - still neutral in the grey but with a hint of colour that nods towards the warmer weather to come.

I love these stripped flats too - Madewell have had a very similar style around for a while, but as they don't deliver in the UK I've not been able to get them (plus Madewell is quite expensive for what it is), so these GAP versions are a great find. 

I'm a bit obsessed with the new GAP range at the moment, they have some great pieces. (And with 20% off until tomorrow now is a good time to check it out!)

Have a great weekend one and all... I'm going to be drinking copious amounts of tea and eating toast whilst on spot watch. There's not much of a normal routine going on around here at the moment whilst Tabby's feeling so unwell, so we're really just cuddling up on the sofa and watching a lot of films. Hey, at least it is still February and not the middle of summer after all! 



  1. Lovely jeans! And of course you can pull them off. I went into Gap last week and fell in love with all the neon pieces - bought a scarf but it was too bright against my pale white Scottish skin! So I took it back. But I did get some socks instead. x
