Fun with scarves and girls

 Val Sparkle has nominated me for the Liebster Award! Thank you very much Val, that's so sweet of you. I'll get back to the award in my next post.

The badge

Although my daughter is 13 years old now, I'm still seeing my old mother's group. We've all been great friends since the day we met.

 For our 10-year anniversary we all went to Barcelona for a week, just the mothers! Yesterday we met up at Bente's, and I wore a new, gorgeous CC dress, and a scarf that was the challenge of the day in the FABruary Style Challenge.

Too matchy?

The fit of this dress is just incredible! I'm becoming addicted to these dresses - good thing they're on sale! The scarf is maybe matching too well, it's hardly noticeable at all!

We all had a great time with lots of laughs and too much fantastic food! I'm so thankful for these girls and the network we've created amongst us.

The others are a bit camera shy, so you only get to see me!

Earlier this week the challenges of FABruary Style Challenge were: Lace on Thursday and coloured shoes on Friday. First the lace-outfit.

Don't I look tired?

On Thursday I got up at 4:50 am as usual. I went to work (which takes me 1,5 to 2 hours!), got picked up by my husband and daughter at 4 pm, went to Ikea and got back home at 9 in the evening.

A bit of PicMonkey fun

With a nice layer of snow outside the coloured shoes challenge needed to be twisted into coloured boots. So I got our my dusty purple boots:

Bye bye boots

On the way out of the door I felt something strange in the left boots - like the in-built gel cushion had collapsed - but I ignored it since I was i a hurry. In the evening it turned out I was right. So, bye bye boots!

Purple scarf

In my closet there's only a few purple items, and no warm knits. The scarf is doing a nice job though, matching the boots, and the cream jumper doesn't get as much wear as it deserves.

The jeans are my magic jeans - those that make my legs look way longer than they are!

This photo was taken before work!

I'm also linking up with Visible Monday at the Not Dead Yet Style blog where so many gorgeous ladies are showing off their creativity in dressing for visibility.

Hopefully I'll make it round to all the fantastic blogs I'm following, to leave comments, but if not - please know that it's not lack of will!

Have a great week everyone & take care!

Wow you look like a hot mama! The fit and the print of your new dress is just incredible. CC should hire you as their model, at least sponsor your blog! The lace top is very cute too, and so is your white top! The only thing I don't like is that you need to get up so early in the morning! Congratulations to your award - very well deserved! Have a great week my friend!

Val Sparkle said...

Pink is your color, in my opinion! That dress is beautiful on you. And hurray for jeans that make your legs look long!

There is no hurry on doing your Liebster post - with a schedule like yours I'd in bed every minute I'm at home!

Have a good week!

You look good in all colours, but the pink one is my favourite for your porcelain beautiful face.

Another fabulous CC dress, Tine, they really do wonders for your shape, and the print on that one is beautiful.
Good to see that pretty lace top again and your famous magic jeans!
What a shame about the purple boots though...
It's great to have a longstanding bunch of friends, I love getting together with my women friends for a night out.
Ugh, 4.50am is a horrible time to get up - that's still night time! And a long commute too, you must feel tired, so you do brilliantly to manage to blog at all! xxxx

Hello Tine,
Congrats to your award and to this beautiful new CC dress! I love these big pink flowers so much and the shape is breathtaking. Although the lace top and the other outfits are beautiful too the dress tops everything.
Getting up so early every morning and nevertheless looking so fantastic you have my complete admiration.
Have a great week !

Bella Q said...

That dress is wowzahs! I love the print, the color, the cut! Must see all angles, all sides and more stylings!

Ulla-Marie Nilsson said...

Style Sud-Est said...

About your friend who is out of work, i hope she finds something soon full or part time -

Magic jeans, that is something I need as I have short legs!

Wow, wow, that dress is a mighty flattering cut on you. It makes you look va-va-voom gorgeous! The print is striking too and on sale--even better.

The Style Crone said...

The dress is amazing and fits you like a glove. All of your 'challenge' ensembles are impressive. I'm a lover of lace and you did not disappoint. I don't remember seeing lace in brown; it looks great with our beautiful coloring.

grunge-queen said...

The dress is gorgeous, and stunning on you! Is CC the label name? I will have to look it up. I don't think that outfit it too matchy-matchy at all; it's perfectly accessorized!

Jan Graham-McMillen said...

All adorable! How fabulous to be able to go on such a trip with your besties!

kaffesoester said...

Dear Anna, thank you very much! I'm afraid CC already has got Jane Seymour as their "face" - and she's stunning! I'm nowhere near being competition.

I'm totally agreeing with you on getting up in the morning, and I'm counting the days till this is over! I do like the company and the job, but it's too much transport for more than 10 weeks!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Dear Val! Years ago I never had any pink in my closet, thinking it highlighted my broken capillaries. After trying a warmer pink everything looked alright - and I looked healthier too, like it was a magical colour!
So magic pink and magic jeans, aren't I a lucky girl?

kaffesoester said...

You are so sweet Sacramento, thank you very much!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Curtise! I love blogging, so I'd hate to go without for 10 weeks! No, I must blog at all costs!

kaffesoester said...

Dear Sabine, thank you so much! I think getting dressed nicely is part of what gets me up in the morning.

If I knew I would have to get up, only to leave the house looking dull and sloppy I would have a hard time getting myself out of the door at all!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Bella - Yes, I'll take way more photos next time! I was thinking of you when I bought it. You have so many gorgeous black dresses with flowers on. Maybe green tights would be fun with this?

kaffesoester said...

Thank you Ulla-Marie - my words exactly when I saw the photos! I can't wait to wear it again!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Ariane! I think it's a good idea to take a break from job hunting. When you come back you will have renewed your energy and maybe have other priorities too.

Have a great time in San Fransisco!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you so much Debbi! All the dresses from this brand have been sale items! I'm so proud of myself. I'd love to buy second h and, but it's very rare that I find items in my size. So I shop sale instead. And I have another one coming from CC, same shape but different colours.

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Judith! The brown lace fabric is actually not very comfortable.

I have the brown lace top in a cream version too, same brand, same style and according to the label, the same fabric - only a different colour.

But the two fabrics are worlds apart! The cream one is soft and warm, the brown is scratchy and cold. Very odd indeed!

kaffesoester said...

Thank you so much! The brand name was earlier Country Casuals, but changed a few years ago into just CC. These dresses are doing wonders for my body, I can't have enough of them! Anyway, here's the URL if you need it:

kaffesoester said...

Thank you very much Jan! It was fantastic, and we're already planning our next trip which will be London or Paris, or maybe Brighton...
