A pocketful of leaves

Little Me wears: A Fashion Union dress*, New Look jacket and boots and a Miss Luxe bag*.
Little B wears: A Topman shirt and jeans and Peacocks boots.

So with finally admitting that I'm a bit of a predictable one in my smock dresses, leather jacket and boots combination, I thought I'd mix it up a little today.. and urm, wear a shift dress instead! I know, I know, I'm totally living life on the edge and especially considering that I wore a fitted dress for a meal (we're not always out for dinner, not normally anyway!) this week! To be honest, I had a slight naive moment when choosing this dress - forgetting that shift dresses are actually more fitted than I remember. This of course delights Little B being able to see those curves of mine but I'll tell you now, the napkin at dinner stayed firmly over my stomach! Nothing gets in the way of me and a good meal. And this is why I'm dating a chef...


Going out for dinner is always a nice excuse to get dressed up (even more dressed up in my case - I apply lipstick.. OOH!) and Little B always heads straight to his ever growing shirt collection with that secretly excited look in his eye. One of these days he WILL have a day job that involves shirts and trousers and I certainly won't be complaining when that day comes. There's no chance I'm turning a man down in a dashing suit.
