I like dresses. I love the idea of being glamourous and dressing up everyday just for its own sake. When I was younger I did my fair share of this, but these days I can't always be bothered making that much effort with my appearance. Conversely, I don't currently own a pair of jeans so the casual option is kind of taken away. I tend to compromise by wearing a lot of skirts and having a huge collection of tights!
One item I've recently re-discovered is the pinafore dress. I like the way it suits my shape and is kind of easy to dress up or down depending on my mood and particular level of laziness.
Today I wore my current favourite
I think its from the 70's. I bought it on Ebay recently and have been on the hunt for more of the same. I'm so fussy with dresses. The length has to be just so, not too far above the knee but not too far below it either, preferably not 100% synthetic fibres and not gathered at the waist! The high street very rarely comes up with anything that fit's this crietria hence my ongoing search for vintage pieces.
Pinafore dress - vintage, Ebay
Pussy bow blouse - Sainsburys
Rust tights - New Look
Belt - Primark
Trusty Tesco boots!
An extra half an hour in bed will always win out over doing something fancy with my hair or make up anytime, so it's nice to have these wardrobe compromises to make up for it!
Hope everybody's enjoying their weekend so far.
