I’ve been really slacking when it comes to getting dressed since I moved to Melbourne, even more so once the cold hit. It’s all about warmth and comfort. To be honest, while I’ve been warm and comfy, it didn’t feel like me. I missed wearing skirts! So the other day, I made a decision to take a little bit more time and to dress how I wanted to. Still warm and comfy, but put a bit more effort into it.
I had to go out to the shops today, I seriously have around 10 loads of washing to do & had ran out of detergant. Gosh, it was such a lovely day, and I took full advantage of it. Sure, it’s still winter, but it was 16c and the sun was shining. It was nice enough that I could wear a skirt (without stockings) and sandals!
Sure, for the walk to the bus stop (I don’t drive), I wore a cropped cardigan over the top, but I was warm, comfortable and felt like me again! I also don’t often wear my hair up if I’m leaving the house, I’ve never liked the way I’ve looked with my hair up, but it’s in need of a wash! Luckily I have an array of bows to help hide that!
Also, I should mention, that top is actually a bodycon dress! I love using it as a layering piece. That skirt is at least 6 years old now too! I just love it. Sorry about the garden, I loathe with a passion those strap leaves that fall from the palm. They shed in the hundreds!
