Although the weather is still refusing to cooperate, I'm beginning to feel Spring creeping up on us. I still need to wear a big coat, but bare arms and legs are only a few weeks away (I hope). I headed back to the rents this afternoon for the first time since I moved into the flat.. mainly to bake cakes, and thought this dress deserved an outing. I've not been up to much today, other than lounging about the flat drinking tea and reading fashion magazines, but I felt like dressing up. You see, I've just been offered a brilliant opportunity, and so I'm leaving my current position, to pursue a path (slightly familiar but I'll tell you all about it soon) which is more what I can see myself doing in the long term. And it's my last day in my current role on Tuesday, hence the cake-making! And hence, the wanting to celebrate bit. The dress is one of those that I instantly fell in love with but somehow never got around to wearing. I'm a little embarrassed to admit that it's been hanging in my wardrobe ever since I picked it up in the Boxing Day Sales! I'm not really sure why, but I think the lack of sleeves made it feel a little too dressy for work, and a little too formal for just day to day. I'm hoping that as the warm weather comes, I start to find more excuses to wear it. Although I'm tempted to try it pinafore style soon with my crisp Oxford shirt underneath... thoughts?
