New OOTD - Dressed Down Checks

Going for a bit of a casual look today as it's a quiet one at home catching on all the things I haven't done this week & getting ready for a big night out tonight.  Plus hubby is suffering after his first game of 5 aside footie, which he hasn't played for many years & despite having a great time last night can barely move today.  This is obviously causing quite a few giggles from our son & I whilst we try to be sympathetic ;-0

I'm keeping things pretty simples & teaming some skinny jeans with this lovely plaid shirt which was sent to me by Hush & was waiting my return from holiday.  Such a lovely surprise to come home to & it's the perfect shirt for snuggling down in.  Not to mention it will be perfect come the cooler darker days ahead.  Sizewise I'd suggest sizing down as it's quite a relaxed fit & comes up pretty big.

So a few jobs around the house & then I'm hoping to sneak in a cheeky snooze as I think it might be a late one tonight.  We're off out to a ball with friends (have to admit I'm pretty excited, I can't remember the last time we went to a ball where the hubby had to wear a DJ!).  Minibus is collecting us all from a friends house in the village so it could get messy ;-0  If you want to see what I'm wearing later I'll post a pic on Instagram.

In the meantime don't forget to enter my competition to win an exclusive Berksondergaard cape for you & a friend.  All you need to do is simply follow me on Instagram (see here), like the picture of me wearing the cape on my feed & leave a comment tagging a friend with what you love about her.  The competition ends tomorrow night (20th) (UK postage only) so get tagging & keep your fingers crossed!

Hope everyone has a fab Saturday & see you in the morning!
