Five Take: Work, Rest and Play

Hello!!! It's Five Take time again, I haven't done a recap for a while, so for those of you not familiar. Five take is where myself and the marvellous Gina, Rebecca, Nicole and Claire take a theme each week and do our own version of it.

This week its a triple whammy, as we do work, rest and play. I love this because I know for a fact that all our varying forms of "work" are very different so should prove for a quite a mixed bag this week.

WORK 
To be quite honest I see my full time job as a mum, its what I spend 90% of my week doing, its what I get up for every morning, but along with being Poppy's mum, I also run a small business, its quite irregular depending on when I have bookings in the diary so this picture is from last month. I run a Vintage Style Tea Party business, I host private tea parties for birthdays, hen parties etc and I also do Pop Up Tea Rooms for events like vintage fairs, charity events and the like.... So here's what I look like when I go to work!

Oh look its that thing rarer than rocking horse poo, a plus size vintage dress...

Dress - Vintage

REST
 I live in my slops about 80% of the time, I am a complete sloth. I spend quite a lot of time in the house So I like to be comfy, this will normally consist of something loose with a big comfy cardigan on top..

My best "I'm embarrassed" no make-up, greasy hair face...

Jumpsuit - South at Littlewoods (Past Season)
Cardigan - Primark

PLAY
And finally play, play for me is a day with Mr BeBe and Poppy, maybe going out for a walk, going to the park, a bit of shopping. So for that I need comfortable but not too sloppy, I still like to feel like I've made and effort.


Ha!! Silly Becky...

Blouse - F+F at Tesco (Same style, different print. This one is available in store though)
Jeans - Jeffrey and Paula at Simply Be (Past Season)
Cardigan - Love Label at Littlewoods (Past Season)
Red Pumps - New Look

  4. Loving all three looks....but lady, how come you still look so flipping glam when you're 'resting'? I wish I looked that together when I was knocking about the house!

    I think you've definitely got a signature vintagey sort of look through out all three of them, the first and the last more so, obviously....

    Basically you look amazing, lovely...great post!
