Friday 23 May: Just another day at the office. The day before I discovered that the left front wheel of my car was only attached by a spring and that I had therefore been driving a death-trap for weeks (when I hit a pot-hole and that funny noise started).
Most often worn: Dark denim Peggy skirt on 7 days; a Darling ranges dress of some description on 5 days; something from a Lisette Portfolio pattern on 7 days; a Renfrew tee on 7 days; a Plantain tee on 5 days.
Not worn because there was something missing: My LoveCats Mortmain dress because I didn't have a black or bright simple cardigan to make it work-appropriate. This was a disappointment: I really wanted to wear it.
Same story with my new Afternoon Blouse. A black or red cardigan would have propelled this into work-wear rotation.
Not worn because I didn't like them: My new Lisette Portfolio trousers. I tried to put them on twice and on both occasions had them off again in the space of seconds. They felt horrible (static?) on my legs and looked saggy and baggy and frumpy. Goodbye - you are off to the charity shop!
Any surprise new favourites? Yes! My Betsey Johnson linen wrap skirt :)
Summary and Conclusions:
- Telling Zoe that I would probably wear my Audrey in Unst cardigan every day in May meant I was too self-conscious to wear it after May 1st - ha ha ha, typical Roo!
- My need for lightweight cardigans continues: I wore my new navy Boden one 10 times in May!
- I failed to stick to my plan to make any black and white separates. The fabric is still waiting upstairs.
- I need a haircut.
- And I need a pair of summery Doc Marten's: I wore my cherry DM chelsea boots 13 times in May... and my two-tone brogues have a hole in the sole.
