Day 3 of the no repeat challenge, this is fun! I know it's only day 3 and I've not swam the channel or anything but still it's 3 days of I am hoping at least 90, if not more.
Talking of swimming the channel, my two boys, along with some other boys from their school, took part in a charity swimathon. They wanted to see if collectively they could swim the length of the channel - approx 1300 lengths of the 25m pool they have at school. At 10.15am they started and they concluded at 12.15. Each child swam the amount of lengths they could and then got out. Together, as a team the swam the equivalent of England to France, France to England and BACK AGAIN from England to France - the target was 1300 lengths and they SMASHED IT with over 3900 lengths swam. My 6 year old swam 60 lengths and my 8 year old managed 82 - to say I am proud is an understatement!
Right then, what did I wear? It was forecast hot but that's not always the way at 9am so I went for a simple maxi dress (£19.99 from New Look), denim jacket and statement necklace. My husband said (when I didn't have the jacket on at first 'oh you're a bit dressed up' and I think this is why some people shy away from maxi dresses - they do not have to be considered smart or dressed up at all. I used to think this until 2 summers ago I just wore mine, and then I bought and wore another and another etc - the more you wear the less 'dressed up' you will feel. Even with the necklace on I didn't feel 'dressed up'.
Maxi hate or maxi heaven? How many do you own? Do you wear them any day or do you save for special occasions?
