Challenges: Quiet day in the office
Attitude / Inspiration: I wanted to wear this dress, despite the approach of autumn, so had to layer it up.
Japanese pattern dress, blogged here
Knickers, as before
Gaps: I had to wear a long-sleeved t-shirt under the dress and a cardigan on top: neither home-made.
Solutions: Yadda yadda yadda
Conclusion: This outfit got me so many compliments at work! I felt relaxed and stylish. A good day! Vintage boots, as before. Birdcage necklace, as before. TopShop hairclip.
Challenges: Up at 5am for a 3-hour train journey to Glasgow for a training course, dress code: "smart / casual".
Attitude / Inspiration: Where has my Boden order got to? (If I have to wear this cardigan one more time I am going to scream.)Self-stitched:
Exactly the same outfit as Day Three, but didn't do up buttons on the cardigan (woooo - dangerous!?!)
When you get dressed in the dark and come home in the dark, after a whole day of Risk Management training and six hours on British Rail... you just don't care any more! Well - I don't!
But I did have lots of knitting time and finished my son's "going away" socks and read a fair chunk of Elaine Showalter's new tome "A Jury of Her Peers". Serious reading!
Um... well I am wearing my Mulled Wine socks, and home-made knickers. But other than that I think the weekend is going to be a self-stitched wash-out: jeans.
