Polo Neck Knit / Frilled Hem Dogtooth Skirt / Necessary Umbrella...



Top & Coat : ZARA. Skirt : Missguided. Shoes : ASOS. Bag : Chanel. Umbrella : Accessorize.

Hello all, it's me again... sloping back, late again. 

Guess why I've been gone? I caught Glandular Fever, with the delightful side effect of jaundice! Yes, jaundice is the thing where you turn yellow. YELLOW. EVEN YOUR EYES. I went from Snow White to Marge Simpson on the skin colour chart. I even took my false eyelashes off, people. This was serious. Suffice it to say I was not looking my best, but please, hold the 'who've you been kissing?!' jokes - as you may know, Glandular Fever is often referred to as 'The Kissing Disease' - caught by the exchange of..... saliva. Oh, the shame of it. Am I now a medically certified tart? (I'm really not a tart I promise.) P.s. how wonderful is the word 'tart'? I'm not endorsing calling other women tarts, it just reminds me of when I've got a ladder in my tights and my Granny tells me I look like a slut or a tart and I laugh, of course. These words meant something very different back in ye olden days.

Now we've gotten that out of the way, lets move on shall we. After not having dressed up in my usual manner for several weeks, when I came to preen myself for my reintroduction to general society (it was  only a trip to Cafe Nero..) I found myself selecting a rather more understated outfit. For me, anyway. Let's bear in mind that I usually like to layer on the jewellery like the mad woman that Jack draws on The Titanic. Nevertheless, this lovely little drop waist, frill hem skirt has become my new favourite AND I've taken to just wearing a pair of earrings OR a big necklace rather than both at once. I know. I'm not entirely sure what's come over me, but I quite like it.
