Suppose we take off our shoes and stockings and paddle?
Do you ever have those times where you put on what you think is a perfectly reasonable outfit, do your face, add a jaunty hair bow, and then look in the mirror and realise you look like an Edwardian lady getting ready to go for a modest dip whilst holidaymaking by the seaside?
Bloomers on show and everything!
I think the bow was a trifle too much. One of these days I'm going to set myself a challenge and actually dress like an actual grown up for a whole week!
Also, SHOCK HORROR, no second-hand cast-offs in this outfit. All items were bought from actual high sreet shops!
Dress: Dorothy Perkins
Leggings: New Look (I hacked them - they were ankle length but I prefer to have the minimum possible amount of legging in any outfit.)
Hair bow: Peacocks
I have worn my stripy dress three times during my short ownership of it; to work, to a party and to a school concert. I won't usually buy something if I don't think it's versatile - can't afford to have separate wardrobes for separate occasions! Also it used to have a belt but the pixies stole it and buried it somewhere.
Also, continuing the theme of dressing like a child (24! I'm 20-flipping-4!), here's a boring outfit that I forgot in the last toast post:
School trip to the allotments in the rain.
(I don't know why it looks like I'm wearing white woolly tights...!)
