Day 24

August 28, 2009

This is my last day in work before a glorious 5 days off, I cannot wait. I am fighting through the day with a boxer belt. Well, it’s not a boxer belt at all but I like to pretend it is. I bought it from a stall set up by a gospel choir at a car boot sale, they had the most amazing selection of clothes. Most of them were too big for me with too many sequins and baubles to alter but there was a fine selection of accessories. So I got this belt and a couple of fancy hats.

This top was my mum’s. It’s not a colour I would normally go for, I like pure colours rather than tones but it is so comfortable and I like the pattern so it gets to hang out with my other tops in the wardrobe.

My skirt is actually swimwear, I have had it since the 90s, it’s a little too big for me now, hence the belt, but putting it on just makes me feel like I should be poolside somewhere. I won’t be but a break is a break no matter where it’s taken.

Day 13

August 17, 2009

How did it get to Monday again? Mondays should be bright and colourful to give a gentle push into the working week and speed the days along. I don’t think I have anything much more colourful than this dress. My mum found it for me at a car boot sale, the woman who was selling it had previously lived in France and had bought this there when she was pregnant with her second daughter. It’s a maternity dress, there are white buttons all down one side which I suppose you undo as you get bigger. This is also very handy after a big dinner.
