2013 Week 29: My Wednesday Style Collective.....

Never fear my lovelies, I know last weeks style may have been a little less than Trudie's normal style efforts shall we say. But I believe I have redeemed myself this week, with a wee bit of dressing up for my pre-birthday celebrations on Saturday night just passed.


I've had this frock tucked away for right at the end of my pregnancy because it is a plus size dress and still a big in the bust area for me. But with some styling and accessories I think I mainly disguised those issues for a new to me combination.

Oh and here are few extra shots of my lover love being cheeky, amazing chicken tikka and me.

Dress - op shopped
Long Sleeve White Tee - retail
Belt - op shopped
Denim Vest - retail
Boots - retail
Tooled Leather Bag - op shopped
Silver Cuff - market buy
Knitting Needle Bangles - all made by me

I had a lovely night and was thankful that we still went ahead with Saturday night, because the pelvic and ligament pain I have been banging on about, really worsened over the weekend and even more so again in the last few days. It's shockingly bad, but I had resolved come hell or high water we would still go out to dinner with a few dear friends. There was not a chance I was wasting what would have been the only child free night we are likely to have for some time yet (maybe we can squeeze another one in, any takers to babysit a crazy 4 and 2 year old?). So please excuse the liberty taken with a picture sitting down and one in the car park after dinner, I quite literally needed help walking come the end of Saturday night and there wasn't even booze involved. I felt like I had a hangover the next day too, seriously my systems going to be in for a shock when I do have a drink again. What I would do enjoy a glass or two of red with these cold winter evenings at present.  Good things come to those who wait, right?  Patience Trudie, patience!

Anyways onwards and upwards, pain or not I'm trying to make the most of it all with a smile on my face an happiness in my heart.

you look lovely...so pleased you had a night out with some pals. I had the same pain with Frankie ( you know that pain of your legs being pulled out of your hip sockets!) and the best thing I did was get a walking stick...yeah I know sounds sad but it really did help with the walking around. two sticks would prob be even better. hang in there honey xxxx

Thanks my sweet. Yeah the pain is pretty horrendous. It's like contractions in my legs, if that en makes sense. The end is near.

Look at you so stylish & gorgeous. The frock looks fab, & the old waistcoat & belt works a treat. SO many of my dresses are a size or two too big, but it doesn't really bother me. I just wish you could enjoy these last weeks minus the pain. Hard when you can't even take any decent pain killers. Xx

Good to know you managed to get a night out, despite the pain. Not long to go now!
Lovely print on your dress, and chicken tikka, mmmmm! xxx

That frock is gorgeous! I'm so glad you had a lovely night, Trudie! Maybe when I move to Southport I can take care of your little ones for a few hours so you and the hubby have some time together! xx

Rest, it's so much easier said than done. But I do hear you and I'm trying my best. I had a massage on Monday, my hair done yesterday and getting a wee little treatment tomorrow whilst I'm child free and catching up with a friend.

 
At July 24, 2013 at 9:29 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

No not long at all. It was nice to get out.

I'm hanging mumma trying to enjoy the last weeks with our last pregnancy.

 
At July 24, 2013 at 9:33 PM , Blogger Trudie said...

Redeemed myself from last week huh? Yes the old belt and waist coat trick,masks in Maxwell Smart tone, it hides sins. You're right there are no decent pain killers I can take at all. As my doc said the cure is to have bubs. Oh well I'll keep making the most of it, as best I can.

There was no way we weren't heading out Curtise I would have had to go into labour not to take our child free night. The tikka was yummmmmo.

Thanks sweetie. Well my two did take a shine to you, so Auntie Sunae might get the call up for baby sitting duties lol.

The outfit is beautiful from head to toe, and it's awesome you guys made a night out for yourself despite the craziness. You deserve it.

Thanks Vix everyone loves a bit of paisley action right?

Thanks for your kind words Van. X

YAY for a lovely evening out.
A belated Happy Birthday lovely lady - when was your special day ?
It's good that you could still have curry - I wasn't able to stomach anything spicy at all.
ENjoy these last few weeks.
Have the best day !
Me
