Well, hello...!

Short and sweet this will be. I will attempt to make up for lost time properly some other time.

It occurred to me the other week that I was becoming a tad scruffy. There is a fine line between casual / comfortable and scruffy, and as my house is currnetly full of dust from building work, the gavel fell on the side of scruffy.

In mitigation, I felt I needed a pencil skirt.

I bought this from LK Bennett (Cissy skirt - in sale)

I also bought a belt which will work with the skirt and also over the beloved jeggings for scruffy comfortable days. Link to belt - but I bought red not blue and mine was in sale so cost less.

Hope you are all well. I will look forward to catching up with others' posts later.

    1. ooh I saw a nice one in Jigsaw which may sit the bill, it had a wide / subtle pleated hem - sounds odd but looked really nice.

  7. Hope you're well Anna and lovely to get a little post from you.

    It's funny how even though I love being scruffy, there comes a point when it's past the point of scruffy and positively shambolic. That was me this week and my response was to wear some makeup. A pencil skirt would be far too much for me - I can't remember when I last wore one!

    1. Hi Sue - little and lame I fear... but as I said above, just determined to make an effort and 'show up'. Make-up works so well as scruffiness antidote too - though I struggle to imagine you n the levels of scruff-dom I have been inhabiting :-) x
