Make More

of the clothes in my wardrobe.
That's one of my goals.
Apparently we wear 20% of our clothes 80% of the time.
I can believe it.
It's just so easy to grab the same old thing.
But no more, more effort is needed. 
Today was easy.
I picked one of the lovely things my sister gave me for Christmas.
A big, bold floral splash of a dress.
Pudding cushion is a necessary accessory.

Today has been fairly laid back.
Our bedroom is looking more or less normal again. Yay.
I made cake pops with S.
The four of us played Pointless, G's present from T and S and then we settled down and watched a movie. 
A lovely way to spend the day.


  1. Oh how true! I am meeting my sister for lunch today and was in a panic last night as to what to wear. That was until I had a real look in my wardrobe. Not only did I rediscover some of my 'old favourites' but found several things I haven't worn at all. I think my own resolution to make not buy might now be tempered by make only what I don't already have lol!
    Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy 2016 X x

  2. I'm guilty of this too... wearing the same things day in, day out, and for years and years, because I hate shopping so rarely buy anything new. I'm happy in my old, comfy clothes. I'm struggling at the moment though as I've been steadily putting on weight for the last couple of years. Most of my clothes were too big before, but now they're getting to the point of being so tight I can only just squeeze in and I feel uncomfortable all the time. I am not shopping for new clothes (can't afford to anyway!) so I'm going to have to eat less and move more!

    Happy New Year :)

  3. So true. I need to clear out my wardrobe and stop buying things I don't need!

  4. I'm full of positive plans for organising myself this year, a new year full of possibilities! Sounds like you had a lovely day, Happy New Year xx

  5. Hi Lisa - Happy New Year Wishes to you and yours.
    Sounds like you had a very good day.
    Dress looks great too.

    Enjoy your weekend.

    All the best Jan

  6. Your dress is really lovely. I rarely show my legs off, not that anyone would want to see my horrible specimens, you'll usually find me in jeans. Eleanor bought Daniel the Pointless book for Christmas, I bet the game is really good.

  7. Great dress! I am not sure that even wear 20% of what I have. Something to change this year! Happy New Year! Enjoy wearing your clothes. xx

  8. Love your dress! Look forward to seeing your makes this year - Happy New Year!
    Caz xx

  9. The dress is gorgeous!!!! I'm quite good T wearing different things in my wardrobe but I do have rather a lot...x

  10. I've been thinking of the same thing - to wear and use more of my clothes and things instead of buying new ones all the time.
    Have a fantastic 2016! Btw, love the dress! X

  11. Love that dress! Happy New Year x

  12. That's such a good new year's resolution. I wear the same five or six outfits to work most of the time but there is loads of other stuff that just hangs there. I need to take your advice! Great dress by the way, very vibrant.

  13. It's so easy to forget the clothes we have and to wear the same stuff; I love the dress but (like Jo) never put my legs on show! I'm looking forward to seeing more of the stuff you wear.
