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?

    LOVE your coat! It's gorgeous! I really wanted to stroll off outside without a coat on today but then reminded myself that even though it's now March it's not quite time to ditch the warm coat yet!

    Ooooooh very intrigued about your new job ….. looking forward to hearing more and best of luck x

    I would definitely stick a shirt under that dress – it's too pretty not to make it work as much as possible! Love the necklace too and exciting news on the job front 😉 x

    You look just perfectly lovely in these photos, Hannah! That dress was clearly meant to be yours, it fits you just perfectly. And I can't get over how well the colours go with your coat… and then the necklace, too. Perfection!

    That's really good about your new role, I'm keen to hear about it soon, when you're ready to share. Try an oxford shirt for sure, one of my staples.

    I've been looking for one like that for ages (can't believe I missed it in the sale).

    Cute vintage inspired style 🙂
