bye bye winter skirts!
Woooo today was warm and sunny! So warm and sunny that a silk cami and a cardigan was just right for the top. On the bottom though I wore a winter skirt with black tights and, my favourites, the clompy Sportsgirl platforms. The skirt's colour, a kind of granny pink (I love this colour) seemed right for the weather, even if the thick felt fabric is more a winter-time thing. It was juuuust right (just like Goldilocks) until about 2pm, when I actually got too warm! So, it would seem that heavier skirts are to be put away for a few months now. Fingers crossed. I am quite ready now; hey I'm looking forward to it!
Lately, however, I have had a strange desire to wear black tights with everything. Not so long ago I liked all different colours, greys and creams, but rarely black. Now, despite the season, they have been popping up almost everyday. It's ok, I have several pairs and a high wash rotation. But I hear tomorrow (Friday) is meant to be 25 C, so I might not need them at all! Bare legs! How exciting!
I am really starting to enjoy Spring, and the lighter colours and layers and so on. However, next week is going to be a dark week, if you know what I mean. I have a few things I want to try, and have also pulled out a dark dress from my donation box that I'm keen to try – and I'm planning on wearing it with black tights. I think there are some rainy days coming up, so I might just be ok... I also saw some floral tights today in a shop near home, that I might just have to revisit tomorrow. Floral tights – now that's appropriate!
