What a difference a day makes! After a few days of coldness, today was beautiful. My deadlines met, I slapped on the factor 30 and went for a walk in my new tea dress.
It was so gloriously sunny today that – gasp – I had bare legs! Not so long ago, I used to hate my pale skin. Now I love it, and have never used fake tan, and am not going to, either. I must warn you though, I'm pale. Very pale. I might like it, but I know that post-winter legs can scare the bejesus out of some people. Brace yourself.
I took my cue from the dress's '40s silhouette, and teamed it with ankle socks and my t-bar platforms. I am planning on wearing lots of ankle socks + clompy heels this spring...
After a little bit of soaking up some afternoon warmth, I crossed the street to the shade, where it felt far more English and familiar. It is a gorgeous street, but this house stood out more than the rest; I love the gate, the flowers in the birdbath and the overgrown trees.
