I had some vague notion of working out a new hair style, or experimenting with a bit of make up, but actually, I have to be a lot more radical. I want to change jobs, and it’s not going to be easy in the middle of a recession, but watching what the people working in the museums and heritage sites I see a particular style – the women tend towards neat dark coloured dresses, stylish seperates, never overly formal….. I am going to try and dress that way. If nothing else, if I do get a job there, I won’t have to go out and buy a whole new wardrobe :-) Okay, so that’s a long term plan, but in the meantime, I can adopt a little bit of the style. I found a comfortable, rather cute wrap around dress yesterday, and bought it – I have a couple of cardigans in bright colours that can go over it, I just need to work out the footwear situation. Of course, the problem is that this one item makes everything else in my work wardrobe look achingly drab and dowdy. But as I am still wearing clothes I wore when I was two stone heavier, I will have to buy a few new items as I get the money anyway. Next step will be to actually WEAR the dress, instead of leaving it hanging in the wardrobe…...

summer clothes that have been hibernating over the winter and …. yoikes, some of them are really scarily dowdy. Especially work clothes. I think I channel my mother when I am shopping for work. My mother is an amazing woman but…..I don’t want to dress like her for another 20 years or so.
