I had a different outfit planned for today. But then I got a message late last night that tonight’s meeting was postponed so I decided to go with a slightly sweeter look that I had grouped together in my wardrobe from a couple of weeks back.
I just love the colours and details of the shoes with these socks. I know The Man is far from a fan of the socks and heels look so when he conceded that it looked cute today I knew I was onto something.
This skirt is very special to me and I’m always happy when I get to wear it. With this pretty embroidered top and the full slip underneath I feel like such a lady. There is something about wearing a slip under clothes that makes me feel like a proper lady. I love to think of the ritual women had in the past with getting dressed. I know that corsets and pantyhose are restrictive and we are ultimately lucky to be able to dress in any manner we please, but the care that went into dressing is alluring to me.
I also enjoy letter writing, cooking, embroidery, jazz and gardening. Hmmm, does anyone have a time machine?
