Spring Capsule Wardrobe Challenge Day Two


I am so full of the joys of spring today.
It is now light enough to go for a run with my dog in the morning at 7am which means I have enough time to get ready for work.
It was my friend Denise's birthday today and I had a rare daytime coffee with her.
I cycled everywhere on my bike with a basket (the car is still in the garage).
I was feeling so energetic I went for a second run with the dog at lunchtime.
And best of all - the sun is shing.
And even better there is no wind and when you stand still in the right place you can feel the warmth of the rays of the sun.
For the first time this year.
Oh Happy Day.
I have some special events lined up and am looking forward to getting out the evenning wear.
I may well invest in a new dress from this great selection.
I wore:
Clarks Boots
Dress - New Look
Blouse - Boden
Heart Pendant (B)

  6. Sonny here too but still very cold. A drizzle of snow during the night made me want to stay longer in bed. I'm a night owl but I wish I could get out running (or at least walking) early in the morning like you. Lovely blouse, perfect with the dark overdress. Ciao. A.

  11. A beautiful day two! I love the floral shirt beneath the dress. Really cheerful! I'm so happy spring has found its way to you; unfortunately it was so rainy today in Virginia that I couldn't get decent pictures!

  12. I wouldn't have thought to put the floral shirt under the black dress. Never too late to learn.

  13. Ha, I did a long-sleeved tee layered underneath a shorter dressy top too, today!

    Very cute and comfy-looking!

  16. Sounds like a wonderful day! I love how well that dress fits you, and the florals pop beautifully against the black. It's great how the capsule challenge prompts us to combine patterns or colors that I wouldn't have otherwise tried together.

  18. I adore the necklace! If I were to wear a shirt under a dress like this, I don't think I would have worn a big statement piece over it, I just wouldn't have thought of it. But it looks really wonderful, so I'm eager to try to copy this look one day!

    And by the way, I thank you for this amazing challenege - On day two I wore a combination that I don't think I ever would have come up with if it weren't for creating a capsule wardrobe. Fun!
