I’ve been holding off on blogging for the past couple of days in the hopes that I might have some good (house related) news to tell you, but as of right now, we’re still in a housing limbo of having put an offer on a property and waiting to hear back! There’s been a lot of back and forth, but we’re in with our final offer now, based on the fact that there having been some changes announced to Stamp Duty today by the Chancellor meaning that we’ll be saving a lot of money on any house we buy (really, a lot – thousands! It’s awesome!). I’m hoping there’ll be good news tomorrow morning, but there’s always the chance it may not go through, so trying to not get my hopes too high!
So for now, I’ll try not to talk about houses! Instead, let’s get on with outfit talk – this is a dress I received from Ghost several weeks ago and, despite being on the more expensive side of the dresses I tend to buy and wear, I’ve actually worn it far more times than I thought I would do! It’s also a silhouette I tend to stray away from generally with the dropped waist, but I decided to give it a go this time and ended up actually quite liking it. Unfortunately, I do find it hard to pair with any layers, since there’s absolutely no definition on my waist meaning layers will just end up making me look bulky, so I’ve tended to wear it just by itself with a pair of opaque tights and a coat or jacket over the top – I have found my leather jacket looks good with it, so that’s a plus! The colour is one that I tend to stray towards hugely through autumn and winter, as do the rest of my family – I swear, every time I put something this colour on, so do my mum, dad and sister, even Ben sometimes! We looked a right state all turning up to the pub the other day in various shades of burgundy! It’s also ridiculous comfortable due to the loose fit which means, even though it’s a more expensive dress, I’ve thrown it on on a few lazy days for tidying the house and staying at home – oops!
