What to wear for a very long hot drive down into the country; joining the entire clan for a massive Christmas celebration en famille...? Exhibit A.
But vaguely halfway stylish and not tooooo casual; for the dropping off of a few prezzies and returning an overdue video on the way, and a short interval hopping out of the car at the halfway point petrol station, the only times the general public will view my person and possibly judge the book by its cover. Er, that's me, the book, natch, being judged by my clothing by the way, in case you missed the tenuous reference...
Not that I had to worry, the standard of dress amongst drivers hanging out at the middle-of-nowhere petrol station today was... well, low, to be blunt. But I still like to make some effort. After all, I'm with my family, and I still care that they see I have some self respect, and make the effort to look nice. That matters.
I'm sure they will still love me all the same.
But that's not to say I won't be going all out tomorrow; steppin' out in my new dress. Yaas, managed to finish it and I'm dying to show it off. Never too weary to get excited about a new party dress...
One sleep to go...
