DRESS FOR YOU: another boyfriend original

There has been a dramatic decline in outfit posts on my Instagram and blog over the past couple of months and when I do post, you’ll notice I’m recycling the same pieces.

As most of you are aware, my wardrobe went through a big cull last year and I’ve been slowly trying to build it back up and create MY perfect wardrobe.

I had been purchasing pieces for the sake of this goal but realised it wasn’t working for me. Things weren’t being worn before I grew tired of seeing them so I’ve decided to take a step back and purchase only as necessary – i.e. to replace an item or for a specific event/occasion. In the meantime, I’ll raid my boyfriend’s closet and live in his things.

DRESS FOR YOU: the anytime dress

I’m one of those girls who loves a night out in a new outfit.  Being a single mum means that I have to be incredibly organised if I want a big night out with the girls.  So more often than not, I have to plan at least a week in advance.  The plus-side of this is a know when I’m going to need a new dress.  I saw this one on Princess Polly, it’s so simple but the cut of it is perfect plus, being an LBD means that it is so versatile.
