Sorry I've been a bit slack updating this. I have continued the challenge though and am still finding it fun and interesting. It's also been quite the challenge.
I went out and helped Power Mums at the Pregnancy, Baby and Children's Expo in Brisbane last Saturday. I knew Ellie was giving us pink Power Mums shirts to wear so I just had to worry about everything else. Black seemed the most obvious colour to wear. I knew I was going to be on my feet the whole day so I needed to wear something comfortable.
Enter my FAVOURITE pants. The style is known to some as ugly. One (freaking amazing) lady, Eden calls them 'Repulsive Genie Pants'. I love them. I have one pair in grey which are not worn out of the house unless I'm planning on staying in the car or am having a feral day. My black pair, however, are worn everywhere. I've worn them out to dinner, movies, pubs, clubs, shopping - you name it if I've been there I've probably worn my black harem pants.

Munchkin was not happy. He knew I was going out without him so he was upset. After I was dropped off he was fine with his daddy.

The mister and I then went shopping. We had coffee and met Bronnie from Maid in Australia for some ice-skating fun. Unfortunately, munchkin was too small and I was too big. It looked like so much fun and for $10 for 45 minutes the perfect school holiday activity for kids. It was wonderful meeting Bronnie and I hope it won't be the last time. If you haven't met her, you should!
After coffee and cake (carrot - yummy!) we went shopping. The mister needed new black jeans for work and I wanted to check out SES Fashion as I was told it's cheap but nice clothes. Perfect for my style challenge.
I walked away with one dress, pair tights, long sleeved top, singlet, and a white business shirt for $20.80. I must admit that I did go over my budget on the dress. It was $5.98. I wore it today with the tights and singlet when the mister and I went shopping (groceries). It's so comfortable and light.

I did do some internet shopping when I got home. It involved lay-bying all of munchkin's Christmas and birthday presents (we always stock up at the Toy Sales) and buying an outfit for me for a birthday party we are going to. I did go over my $5 Style Challenge again though. I paid $10 for a pair of harem pants to wear. Can I justify it by saying that it's a PAIR of pants, so each leg is in fact $5?!
I'll definitely post photos of that outfit. If my plan goes ahead I'll look hot. Especially if my boobs make their pregnancy appearance!
