I've been thinking a lot lately about luck. I've always considered myself a relatively lucky person. I have a great family and amazing friends. I grew up in a supportive and loving environment. I went to good schools, and in turn a great University (even if I didn't manage to graduate... yet) but this past week I have been lucky in a much more frivolousness, but somehow much more real way. I won a couple of competitions, and even though it doesn't actually mean anything, I'm ridiculously excited. It's funny how tiny things can make you so excited.
Anyway, on to the clothes. I picked up this dress in the YMCA charity shop, and I love it. Finding genuine vintage for under £10 is always exciting, and I love so many details on this dress. The colour and pattern are lovely, and the detail on the front is just ridiculously cute. I wore it to take the dogs out for a walk over the weekend and pick up some shopping. We bumped into the most adorable puppy just before taking these photos and she managed to cover me in mud. I'm pretty forgiving when it comes to animals though so I didn't really care. I actually kind of like the paw print on my tights.
It's actually getting too cold to take my coat off to take outfit photos, I'd love to try taking them inside but the lighting in our house is just awful. I could invest in some decent lights (Chantilly did a great indoor shoot yesterday) but I'm not sure it would be worth the investment. Until then I will just have to freeze, or maybe you'll just get lots of photos of my coats from now on, like the last photo below. See, I am sensible (sometimes).
