Now, in general- despite being the kind of person who rarely strays from a pair of worn in jeans for meetings and errand running- I’m the kind of gal who would rather be a little overdressed than underdressed. But, if there’s one piece of advice I can offer from today’s blog post- it’s that dressing like a wedding guest on one of the hottest days of the year, for a day crammed with meetings and walking around- was not my wisest idea. Saying that, when you indulge in a dress as beautiful as this one (if there was one thing that happened during my day of poor-choices it’s that people definitely praised this dress) it’s hard to not want to wear it for every occasion, every day of the week. It wasn’t the most ideal commuting outfit as it so happens, but as someone said whilst I had it on, ‘at some point today you’ll be dressed completely appropriately for the occasion’- and she was so, very very right (the occasion being a party, twelve hours after initially getting dressed- huzzah)!
Anyway- the dress, THE DRESS. Bought as a ‘I know I’ll wear it for everything‘ piece (read: weddings, to bed, parties, interviews, meetings, my wedding- probs) I couldn’t help but sweep it into my bag, ignore any buyers remorse (justification being: ‘it was…payday?’) and then continue to wish to wear it every day since. Although it’s not the most subtle piece in my wardrobe, it’s certainly a piece that I know I’ll have for a very, very long time (I’m pretty sure wearing colour emits happiness)- and something that has already proved a hit with the question ‘Ah! Where’s your dress from?!’- which I’m pretty sure means it’s a big, red, flowery yes from me.
