Up my sleeve

Wednesday, October 14, 2020


Dresses with sleeves are one of my favourite things to wear. I dithered about this dress when I bought it. My memory fails me whether it was ebay or charity shopped but I'm thinking it must have been online as I barely went out in spring or summer. I have been in a few charity shops over the last couple of months but it's a dreadfully gloomy affair these days; having to do a tally up before entering and trying not to touch anything or get near huffing other people. Not much fun. Back to this dress. It's a heavy stretchy material and over all I'd say it's too roomy but has to be to not unflatter me so I guess it'll have to do. While I don't especially like dark blues and navies on myself, it's a patterned fabric which does show u better in these pictures than I expected. 

Probably the last bare legged trip out for a long while. Boo, back to thermal tights again which pose so much more a risk of being damaged by thorns than just skin. 

I want to plough into autumn on the energy that summer brought but it's easier said than done. Everything changes when the light fades and the cruel wind blows again.
Take care,

  1. I'm just back into tights again. I'd forgotten how they felt. I have a basket of neatly rolled opaque ones, some are YEARS old. But this autumn I'm going to be ruthless and throw out the ones which are uncomfortable - however much I like the colour

  2. What a lovely dress! I love this type of dress in the autumn too. I recently got one that looks very similar in style, but it is red and not blue. The nature around you is beautiful also! :)

  3. This is a smashing dress and the colour really suits you. It goes well with lots of colours too should you wish to pair it with something.
    My local charity shop isn't too bad, but I haven't been in recently. I really missed them during lockdown but I think I've managed to go cold turkey and get over my addiction! It helps that I have more than enough clothes to see me through.


I love to hear your comments xx
