321 days to go: Fulsome (!) Prison Blues
Back to the prison where I work as a writer in residence two days a week.
Dressing for prison always gives me the blues as it's a dilemma for obvious reasons.
I usually wear trousers and while I like to feel good I don't want to look in any way at all provocative.
My staple prison wardrobe in recent times has been jeans and a fitted top. I don't wear a belt as I have to wear a thick black belt which carries my keys and whistle!!!
I decided that I will try and go for colour combinations to keep me interested.
I loved Sheila's post about brown and turquoise and had a dyeing frenzy. I dyed lots of off white camisoles and tops turquoise. I am quite pleased with the results.
Back in for a quick bite to eat before watching my eight-year-old play a game of football so swapped the shoes for blue boots (Aldi).
Turquoise Camisole (dyed) ... Dorothy Perkins
Shoes..Clark's (again, I know!)
Pendant and bangle..Free with Spanish Instyle
PS Don't you just love this long lightweight cardigan I saw modelled by a mannequin at my local M&S store?
