Not quite 50 shades of grey but not far off – toning prints and textures

I’ve had this M&S Limited Collection dress – which you can’t actually really see at all, so that’s helpful – for a good few years now. I don’t really remember wearing it last year so it’s nice to resurrect it this year with the addition of this Whistles jacket/cardi type number, which I like because I wear it when I go out and then I leave it on when I come back in – because that’s the kind of lazy dressing that I like! Somehow the addition of the scarf makes the jacket feel much warmer. I have no idea why this is but no doubt there’s some weird and wonderful reason for it.

Most of my wardrobe is made up with pieces that I hope to own for many years without them dating – or that’s the plan anyway. Then from season to season I just update them by putting them with new bits and bobs that I’ve bought – well again, that’s the plan. Now that Mr SG reads this on a daily basis, it’s time to well and truly put my plan to the test. Yes, it’s time to dig deep. I’m hoping that he’s going to tire from reading this flippin’ blog sometime very soon.

    So, so beautiful. Such a cozy and feminine look for dealing with cold temps. Sort of an abstract floral print on the dress, yes? It's a bit difficult to see the weight of the dress fabric. Is it cotton jersey?
