I met up with my pal Ruth for lunch today; we went to old Nando's, my favourite place in the whole wide world. Because I was actually wearing something other than jeans and three layers of cardigans and sweaters, I took a photo before I set off.
I haven't worn this much colour since about 2001. The dress is a cheap one I got before my travels last summer and the cardigan is from River Island. My parents took me shopping as part of my christmas present, and this is one of the things that I got. It isn't something I would normally choose, but the pattern looks like monkey faces! And while I hate all monkeys with a fearful passion, these make me chuckle every time I wear it. Simple minds, and all that. The boots are from a charity shop and the bag is vintage (I just found it in my room the other day after completely forgetting I had it. I rejoiced).
Check out my hallway, very swish.
Also, I just realised you cannot see the monkey faces at all on my cardigan. How embarrassing that I told a whole story about them.
