There is nothing that sends me into tailspin faster than someone telling me to dress casually for a dinner in summer. I think the go-to for most people when the dress code is “casual” is jeans, but when it’s as balmy as it was a little earlier this year, that’s the last thing you feel like putting on.
I am, and have always been, a bit of a bowerbird. I love shiny, pretty things (my earrings collection is testament to this) and this poses a bit of problem for my wardrobe. I just keep falling in love with, and buying clothes that are much more suited to eveningwear than the practical day-to-day stuff.
