53 days to go: Warmer Weather

The temperature's hotting up here in Blighty.
Today I was working in the prison which is too hot in summer and too cold in winter.
I wanted to keep cool and look good but in a modest way.
I dug out this dress from the "throw out pile" and realised I liked it after all especially when I paired it with a cropped jacket.
I would have loved to wear sandals but I stick to a closed toe shoe policy in the prison.
Today didn't go great but I had a lovely lunch with Jenn.
We sat in the picnic area and ate our sandwiches before taking a stroll around the perimeter fence.
Ah well, tomorrow's another day.

I wore:
Shoes - Clarks
Dress - Gap
Jacket - Matalan

Hi there-the dress and jacket work very well together!

I love the jacket on you. Not terribly wild about the dress, but it does fit you beautifully and is very flattering. I'm so used to seeing you in more colour. :)

That wrap style is flattering on you and seems to be a good one for lots of body shapes.

I'm so impressed with your almost-year of doing this.

I like the dress worn both ways, with jacket and without. Hope your day goes better today. Sounds like you made the best of it :)

I love the jacket with the dress. The dress looks so different!!
