black floral dress in the sunshine
A long sleeved dress is a must-have as part of my wardrobe as you can sneak all manner of layers underneath it. My extremities suffer with the cold even indoors over winter - I often jest that I must be part lizard. Some people are naturally warm all the time which makes me so envious; how convenient! I used to think that increasing my exercise regime would increase my circulation to keep me warmer but there has been absolutely no discernible difference. Cold from the elbows and knees onwards. Nippy toesies and nosy.

There is something enchanting about a black dress with bold coloured florals. Until I reviewed these photographs I had no idea there were sold black squiggly lines down the front, back and sleeves. It would look nicer in my opinion to maintain a consistent covering of pattern all over - but there we go. In my mind's eye I would secretly love to design a range of clothing each season which would be made up of pieces that would be timeless and give a nod to the colours and trends of the time but not to the extent of rendering them out of place in years to come. It would make for an amazing project. Maybe one year?

Big sleeves! The fabric is regrettably too lightweight for a breeze as it billows and gets buffeted all over the show. Ah well, you live and learn.

It'll soon be bare legs weather which will be so much more pleasant.

  3. It's not always plain sailing when you live with somebody who is always warm. While my wife Jackie roasts, I freeze. Oh, the discussions about whether the heating should be on or off, you wouldn't believe!
