Barefoot Bowls what would you wear?

After a great deal of thought 5 mins like I wore  this 70s vintage floral

Terrible pic thanks to the Captain
 Look at that concentration

 A few tips from a pro.

 Howzat!!(yere I know its not cricket)
look at the stance how attractive NOT!
  Even the Captain had a turn.I think he has his dads genes as he played well Both of us getting closest to the jack in a couple games and one tie Not that we wer competing with each other at all.hee hee

 Master 6ft 5 also had a go
 This was followed by a lovely roast lunch

where  master 2 won a prize

happy much
 WOO HOO a pillow pet

 Dont think about taking this of me Gran!!

 Poor little man has an infected toe at the moment.Hope he will be ok scraped it on the road then apparently stepped in something not so nice,

And that my friends was my 1st ever game of  barefoot bowls.Was fun Id recomend it.Make sure you go floral tho.Those white outfits need a floral makeover lol

You would've stuck out like a very pretty sore thumb in that floral number Nelly. About time the bowling fraternity got colourful. The woman I used to work with at the oppie bowls, you should hear the stories she tells...she's shattered all my illusions, that's for sure!

Well aren't you the prettiest bowls player I've ever seen!!! I used to go with my Aunt who playws corporate bowls which was super relaxed and I always won the chook raffle. x

Bowling needs some glamour, Nelly, and you and your beautiful dress supplied plenty of it!
Like Kylie, I have heard ALL kinds of stories about bowls club shenanigans, so be careful out there!

There's a bowling green a couple of minuted from my house and nobody looks half as fabulous as you do in your vibrant frock! xxx

I'd definitely wear anything from your wardrobe! That dress fits you like a dream, you're so petite, all the 70's styles suit you perfectly.

Krista said...

You had to be the prettiest gal there! I love this dress on you and Lucy's spot on the 70's style suits you so well! Poor lil munchkin's toe, I do hope it gets better soon!

EGAD!!!! You are SO right about the floral makeover - what's with the white uniforms? They should have themed days ... hey, there's an idea for your next day out! Everyone has to play BB in circa 1974 or whatever! LOVE the pillow pet, the little man certainly looks like he deserves it poor darling:)) xoxo

Miss Peregrin said...

Well this looks way more fun than a stuffy old bowling alley like we have here, and WAAY better than wearing those clodhopper bowling shoes they require! You looked divine Mz. Nelly - classed up the joint for sure ;- )

Hope the little guy's toe heals well with no complications other than it slowing him down a bit. Oh wait! NOTHING slows a little boy that age down. But I do hope all heals well.
