I decided to participate in the dress challenge, despite being 1 week late in starting.

I have really enjoyed doing this challenge because it has made me realise that I am very happy almost dressing in a uniform. My uniform has the following aspects:

  • statement dress or skirt and top combination
  • jacket or coat
  • pumps or boots
  • statement handbag - usually medium sized satchel

I seem to get enough variety from these components to not need to veer too far from the formula. In fact, this formula has become my signature style and I am comfortable with that. Thanks Angie for posing the challenge to get me to reflect on why I like wearing dresses so much.

Friday - another day at work, but we have a more relaxed dress code on Fridays. I wore my snakeskin print dress, with blush faux fur and white boots. My bag is a new favourite, bought on my trip to Japan. I liked the lighter palette after a week of bold or dark colours.

I had to go direct from work to attend my son's school play - a bit of a riff on Camelot with lots of puns. My son was Sir Roundsound - a very noisy leader of the Knights of the Roundtable... It was heaps of fun and a brilliant way to start the weekend.

Today - rather than wear a dress, I decided to put on this denim skirt. I really like this skirt, it is soft and comfortable - it is by Mother denim, which for me is a great brand. I have had this skirt for about 2 years and find it a fun and easy alternative to jeans. Worn with my most precious knit - because the print has Westies on it - I also popped on my red pea coat with this as today is stormy weather.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
