I am not a “formal” person. I don’t do formal in conversations or in clothing. After, I don’t know when was the last time, a very long time I had to dress up formally today for an event. Turned out that it wasn’t a necessity 🙄 After going through the trouble of shopping, trying out clothes, wearing formal shoes etc etc etc (you have no clue to the amount of whinging I did during the shopping. Mr. M should be applauded just for putting up with that) I might as well be in my jeans and tops. Formal clothes in India is different from formal clothing in the UK and I now know that I am not good with either. Give me casuals any day or my lounge wear.
I recently got a gift for my nieces. Identical ones, so that they won’t fight. It was just a small kit with hair band, ear rings etc to be worn on a birthday. Since the second niece’s birth day is in December, I thought those two sisters can wear something similar that day. One of them was modeled after Frozen Elsa’s blue color stuff, with Elsa’s picture on the cover. I didn’t know if they had seen Frozen or not. So was surprised when my first niece (the eldest of the two) said that she will wear Elsa’s hair band. Then during a separate discussion she said that for her birthday in February, she would like to have Elsa’s dress as my gift for her. I thought she might go for Anna’s and again was surprised when she asked me for Elsa’s. When I asked her about it she said, well, Elsa is the eldest and I like her dress. Anna’s has a cape which I am not fond of and it is stifling in the heat. 😆
