Being a casual-ish, friendly sort of a day today I'm dressing to suit. I had to do some work in the office (groan) but managed to squeeze in a quick morning tea with some friends and also a lunch with some other friends. And the weather has been bliss. So a perfectly looooovely sort of a day!
Today I'm wearing a necklace cobbled together by my daughter from bits and pieces, which I've borrowed in the past. It includes a voodoo doll, given to her for Christmas present, a ballerina charm which I think we found somewhere, and her dog tags, from when we lived in the US. She was awarded these dog tags for participating (they weren't given a choice, btw) in the DARE programme running at the school. DARE stands for Drug and Alcohol Resistance Education. I should mention she was ten years old at the time. Yeeah... I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions from that one...
We are into that slightly awkward time of the year when the mornings are briskly cold, meaning boots and a jacket or cardi of some sort are necessary, but so warm in the middle of the day one is roasting in the aforementioned boots and jacket. And this little orange skirt has been such a winner. It's amazing how such a bright in-your-face sort of a colour can turn out to be such a good mix-n-match item.
