The weather is cooling down so I thought I'd jump up and down to keep warm.
Only joking.
For some reason this skirt makes me want to twirl, jump and have fun.
This morning I got into my car to take the children to school and .. nothing.
The car was as dead as a dodo.
My older children opted to walk while the youngest and I cycled to school.
I had to rearrange a meeting and then spent the best part of the day cycling around the village carrying out errands.
I met with Kiki and gave her what remained of my lovely dress.
Last year I cut off the top which was too tight and made a skirt but it didn't look right.
I asked Kiki to make me a bag so that I can wear it every day.
The dress, like this skirt, is one of those garments which makes every day feel good even when things go wrong.
And the good news if I found the same dress in a size bigger on ebay so I will have a dress and bag to match!

Today I wore:
Shoes - Clarks
Skirt - Principles
Vest - Gap
