You know that feeling when you try on a (potential) new item of clothing - and it makes you look lumpy and horrible. Or short. Or skinny or fat or pale or... weird... Happens quite often to me. But every now and then you try on something and (after a bit of pulling and prodding) it just works. That's how I felt in this new Boden dress: super flattering, making me look more ladylike than I've ever felt. And a cool pattern too. Fab. So that was the good bit last week. The bad bit (clothes-wise) was when I remembered how much I miss wearing heels...
Love my new dress from Boden, but it has a tricky neckline and I was a bit worried that I couldn't layer anything (and I'm always cold). Glad I still have this Warehouse jacket (must be about 10 years old). Haven't figured out how to wear a necklace with said neckline - but I don't think it needs it?
Sometimes I mourn the fact that I can no longer wear heels. Like when pairing a skirt with shoes is *so* much easier if you have heels at your disposal. Ok, so the skirt worked quite well with pointy flats (last week) but it was due to rain and I didn't want to risk wrecking the suede. I came home, did my usual pic and, before I changed into my home clobber, just quickly put on a pair of heels that have been crying in the back of my wardrobe. Instant lift. *sigh*
Top & skirt: Warehouse

That picture doesn't do any justice to that dress, which is nigh on magic: it gives me a waist and manages to be fairly low cut without being too revealing to wear at the office.
Boots: Marks & Spencer
Mr G says he doesn't like the jumper as "it looks like something from the 70s". I'd say 80s myself and I do like it. :)
