I love this dress. It makes me feel French and feminine and fifties-ish. I think it makes me feel French mainly because I remember wearing it on Bastille Day in Paris last year. Isn't it strange how clothes have such sentiment? I always remember in college I had a pair of hounds-tooth leggings that I wore with doc marten boots, denim skirt and sparkly turquoise jumper. (I was quite the eccentric photography student back then) I could NOT for the life of me throw away those leggings, not even when they were falling apart. Do you have any items of clothing that you cherish for sentimental reasons? I'm sure we all do!
I have been so busy this week, because I became an Auntie! My sister gave birth to her little daughter on Tuesday morning and named her Sophia Elizabeth. She is absolutely gorgeous. I know everyone says that about babies in their family, but she really is! She has lots of black hair and a squishy nose and everyone says she looks just like her Auntie Helen. I'm really looking forward to spoiling her once she gets a bit older, but for now all she does is eat or sleep ha! But I've been helping my sister by making meals on wheels and sorting out all of the gifts she has been given. For a little baby she has more clothes than I do!
I feel fully settled in at work now also, as I enter my 4th week. Everyone is so lovely there, but of course working full time has meant that my blogging is rather sporadic now! I have so many exciting things to blog about though, from crochet to whoopie pies to work clothes! I WILL make time for it all, promise!
