Rare Nights Out

Before becoming a Mummy, my life was full of nights out, pretty dresses, high heeled shoes and shopping trips. Of course in the wake of Leo’s arrival, life quietened down.. On the social front anyway. Life became about changing nappies, bottles of milk and muslin cloths. I traded my nights out on the tiles for nights nursing my wakeful baby, and those late lie in’s on the weekend for an early start after a disturbed night’s sleep.

Of course as rewarding as being a Mummy is, being the very centre of a little person’s universe can sometimes make you want to pull out your own hair. Sometimes you need a night off and to leave your ‘Mummy’ tag at home, while you get dressed up, put on a beautiful dress and try to remember how to walk in those high heeled shoes that have been cast aside to the bottom of the wardrobe.

In the next few weeks I have my works annual party, it’s a chance to get dressed up and maybe even treat those roots of mine to some colour! The night consists of tasty food, adult company and maybe a little too much alcohol, but it gives me the perfect excuse to buy a new dress for the occasion.

Over the last couple of weeks I have been scouring the internet to find my perfect dress for the night that I get to let my hair down and dress to the nines. I have spent the longest time considering my dress budget (because I do NEED a new dress right!?) and gazing at the range of cheap cocktail dresses from Zalando. They have such a large selection with many of the dresses within the budget that I have set myself. Now I just need to narrow it down to one dress out of the many that I am eyeing up.

Being a big lover of the Lipsy dress range, I think I may have found a dress worthy of my work party. This silver cocktail dress.

Nights out these days are so much more coveted than they once were. They take organisation and planning, and this for me makes the night of freedom that extra bit more special.
