changing tastes

Karen Walker dress, Helmut Lang blazer, Charlotte Olympia shoes

It occurred to me the other day, how seldom I wear dresses in comparison with a few short years ago, when I would sub-consciously reach for them each morning, throwing an oversized cardigan over the top and calling it a day. Now, I probably opt for separates about 90% of the time, and the dress section in my closet has diminished greatly from the extensive amount of closet space it once took up. Why it’s taken me almost two years to notice this, I couldn’t even begin to explain, although I would hazard a guess that trends are often forgotten in a similar manner, as newer, shinier items in your wardrobe begin to appeal for day to day wear. Considering making a conscious effort to change this once warmer days start approaching, since there really is nothing simpler than slipping into a loose dress and some sandals and walking out the door.

    You know, I’ve never really thought of dresses as being easy to wear (especially when I was a child because they would restrict me from running and being carefree), but as I get older, dresses are starting to make more sense. I definitely love the way they look. I just need to get out of the frame of mind that dresses are only for special occasions.

    You’re looking classy, as always 🙂

    I hardly wear dresses now either, too many lovely trousers knocking about! You look lovely, as always. Love that blazer so much, it’s such a nice fit. xxx

    I’ve realised the same thing recently too! I’m much more a pants, shorts and occasional skirts kinda girl these days. I think mostly it’s because I find it impossible to find dresses that are long enough for me. All the pretty/fashionable dresses seem to be made for people a foot shorter than me :/

    Life etc
