Ground Control To Major Tom: Outfit Of The Day

Ground Control To Major Tom: Outfit Of The Day. Happy Sunday friends. So how is your weekend going? My eldest Son has been home for the weekend, which has been lovely.

Late nights, all around! How the younger generation can stay up until the early hours of the morning, eh!?

Ground Control To Major Tom

Ground Control To Major Tom:

It was his birthday earlier in the week and he and his girlfriend spent it in Barcelona. How lovely. Somewhere I have always wanted to visit. I would love to see the Sagrada Família.

It looks like an amazing place to visit. I really wish we could start travelling up again. First thing first, renew our passports, methinks.

David Bowie t-shirt. How cool!?

Ground Control To Major Tom: Outfit Of The Day:

Dressed in my favorite David Bowie t-shirt, I felt like a stardust rebel ready to conquer the ordinary with a touch of Ziggy Stardust flair.

The iconic image of Bowie’s face, with one eye obscured by a celestial lightning bolt, was like a secret handshake to fellow space oddities. Ground Control to Major Tom, the shirt seemed to whisper, as if I were on a cosmic mission to add a splash of glam rock to the mundane.

With every step, I strutted through the day with a rock ‘n’ roll swagger, channeling the David Bowie, vibe within. The Bowie tee became my own personal spacecraft, propelling me into a universe of eccentricity where fashion and music collided in a kaleidoscopic burst of style. Ground Control never had it so stylishly cosmic before.

Ground Control To Major Tom: Outfit Of The Day:

How cool is this Bowie T-shirt!? Even better when you get it for free. My Mum treated herself to it and it was too small. So she gave it too me rather than take it back to the shop. I get more like her every day.

I buy things that do not fit me too.  Then rather than take them back, I chuck them in the back of the wardrobe, it ends up in my “gets into one day” pile of clothes.

My wardrobe is jam-packed full of one-day clothes. I really need to work harder at the gym!

Outfit Of The Day

Love My New Red Leather Bag:

I eventually treated myself to a new handbag, with my birthday money. A month after my birthday, I’ve finally spent my money. It has been burning a hole in my pocket for ages but I was saving it for something I really liked and needed.

Typical when you have spare money, you do not see anything you want. Then when you have nothing spare you see lots of things you want to buy.

I found this beautiful leather bag in TK Maxx. It was just what I was looking for. I have wanted a nice quality bag for ages and I saw lots of beautiful leather ones in here. Also a lot of amazing ones, out of my price range.

I didn’t find it at the first store I visited. The had lots of lovely bags but none that fit what I was looking for. So I visited a few other stores and found the perfect one. Not bad for £30.00 either.

In my price range, a few different zip compartments, leather and my favourite colour, red. Perfect!

My Husband has been joking about this “magical birthday money” for the last few weeks. As I kept buying bits and boobs but still had some left. Now he can rest knowing, I’ve spent it all!

Do you also take the time to spend your money wisely or do you rush out and spend it straight away?

Do you have one-day clothes or are you good at trying them on before you buy?

Sunglasses Day:

Firstly, Sunglasses Day: Are You Wearing Yours? Can you believe I travelled all the way to London yesterday, on the hottest day of the year so far and forgot to take my sunglasses? Doh! I did remember to take them alway with us to the coast though, a few weeks ago when we went to Skegness for a few days over the school holidays. Sunglasses Day: Are You Wearing Yours?

What I Wore: Nottingham Castle:

Secondly, Outfit Of The Day: What I Wore: Nottingham Castle. On Sunday me and my Daughter had a day out in Nottingham. Just the two of us. We had such a fun time together. We were going to visit the Victoria Embankment but as my youngest son decided to stay home we changed our plans and we went to visit Nottingham Castle. Nottingham Castle.

Messing Around On The River:

Thirdly, Messing Around On The River. The water looks so calm and swans look as though there are enjoying there swim. Messing Around On The River.

Polka Dots And A Drama Llama:

Fourthly, Polka Dots And A Drama Llama. My photos were taken on my birthday when I asked my Daughter to take a few photos of my outfit. She adores llama’s at the minute and is loves buying anything with them on. Polka Dots And Drama Llamas.

    Birthday money does tend to burn a whole in your purse doesn’t it? But it also grows at the same time. Sadly I have too many one day clothes too, thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo

    Sometimes when I first get a paycheck, the money “burns a whole in my pocket”. It’s hard not to go out and spend it all in one day, but I’ve gotten good at budgeting.

    Fab Bowie Tee shirt, I finally, finally bought myself a graphic tee shirt whilst on holiday, so will be sharing that one soon! It’s rather plain, but still a graphic tee! Thanks for sharing, I’ve just come back from L’Escala, which is very near Gerona, a lovely part of Spain. Jacqui Mummabstylish

    Kids can really stay up can’t they? When they are both home I hear our 2 lads talking well into the early hours, I have no idea how they get up in the morning!
    TK Maxx is a great place for bags isn’t it? It’s the first place I go these days. I love your red bag <3
