Casting aside those trousers in favour of a dress – nothing too drastic and not for too long but it’s a start….

There, I did it. Hardly a great achievement is it, waking up in the morning and deciding to wear a dress, especially of the jersey variety, but habits can be hard to break and I have definitely been in trouser mode of late.

Easing myself back into this dress malarky I wore this Jersey striped dress from Jigsaw (£63 but only available in M and L although there’s this alternative striped tunic dress from Per Una which is £39.50) with a white shirt layered underneath and a black Reiss jacket. The white shirt just softens the dark colour of the dress against my “winter skin” plus of course it also adds a layer of warmth. Thick black tights and Whistles pony hair loafers meant that I was totter free zone.

So has anyone else ventured into dress territory of late? The smattering of snow that greeted us this morning meant that it was back to trousers today but I live in hope of a little spring sun sometime soon.

    I really love the idea of layering a shirt underneath a dress and you look great. Ashamed to say that I wore joggers today but I've been busy at home so that's my excuse x

    I did this all week for work – I wore a different dress each day – by Friday I was pig sick of dresses and I've been in jeans ever since!
