After my night at the MAD Blog Awards, I went to the railway station to meet my family who were coming to London. I was so excited to see them. When this gorgeous girl came running over to meet me, I couldn’t stop smiling.
It was 21st September. No longer summer. She had dug into her wardrobe and come up with this beautiful ‘between seasons’ outfit all by herself. It was a funny combination, but I loved it. It was quirky and individual and perfect for the time of year. Although unfortunately I didn’t get a decent picture her wearing the whole outfit.
The navy, short sleeved cloud dress was one of my Next bargains from last year. I’d bought it in the sale and put it away until this year when she would have grown into it.
She was wearing it with the mint green Next cardigan with the pink trim. This one was a bargain in the summer sale rather than the winter sale. The dress had green on it too, but it’s a different shade of green. The dress and the cardigan really weren’t made to go together.
She’d finished the outfit off with a pair of grey school tights and her pink Converse pumps.
And she looked brilliant – cool and funky, but also like a gorgeous little girl who had put her own outfit together.
