Being Mid-June and so say in Summer, I thought last weekend was long enough to have delayed packing away the chunky jumpers and bringing forth some of my Summer wardrobe.
Clearly this was a big mistake as ever since, I’ve been looking mournfully at the clothes hanging in my wardrobe and trying desperatley to work out what exactly I can wear without risking hypothermia.

This dress once again came to my rescue. I call it “old faithful” and bought it at least five years ago from Asda George for not very much money at all.
I have nearly got rid of it several times, but each time I drag it out I remember why I haven’t, I think it’ll be one of those dresses I’m still wearing when I’m eighty.

Even with a cardigan added I was freezing at work yesterday, and it seems S.A.D. may be making itself a year round affliction…

What in your wardrobe has stood the test of time? How are you coping with this miserable weather?

Enter my giveaway for a chance to cheer yourself up with a new bag; I wish I could send everyone a little something in the post to make them smile!
