This unseasonably warm weather has thrown the people of Britain into a couture conundrum. Today I saw two girls waiting for a bus – one wearing a fur-lined parka (?!!) and the other denim hotpants. 20 degrees in March? We are SO not prepared!
Luckily my weather-based optimism has served me well and after unpacking my summer wardrobe this weekend, I’ve had the joy of wearing some of my faves over the last few days. This chambray dress was a Primark purchase just a few weeks ago – I love the lightweight fabric, cute collar and twirly skirt. I’d been waiting for a suitably sunny day to make its debut, and today was most definitely the right one!
I teamed my dress with sneakers that will be known from here on as The Happiest Shoes In The World. I’ve been wearing Converse since my 16-year-old emo days (with skinny jeans and Paul Frank t-shirts – anyone else?) and love them, but often struggle to find them big enough – the women’s range seems to stop at a 7 which is just a touch too tight. These beauties are actually a men’s size 7 and fit like a dream – if you’re a big foot like me, I’d really recommend checking for unisex styles before cramming your crippled toes into a too-small shoe. Men’s sizes come up just that little bit bigger and can be cute too – even the pink Converse sneakers come in men’s sizes!
Happy Wednesday everyone – it’s time to stop reading this post (maybe leave me a comment first), get outside and enjoy the sunshine. Have a great evening!
