I have four main outfits that I have been wearing this winter. I tend to wear a grey jumper (unpictured) with the skirt. As I was thinking about my tendency to not vary in my dress, I couldn’t help but ponder on why I’ve bought so much fabric to make new clothes.  I’ll tell you something though, you can be assured it’s following a similar colour palette! ...

6 months of 2018 memories and august wish list

Laziness!  Ok, rather than dwell on why no updates of late, let’s move on to actual updates.
