Today is Ash Wednesday but also – also! – it is 1 March. The first day of Spring! Hurrah! I have no objection to winter (in fact I love it) but it is a good feeling when the days start getting lighter and warmer.
I’ve given some thoughts to the children’s clothes – I need to do another clear out, I’m sure they have lots that they aren’t going to wear again. Perhaps I have the urge to spring clean?
A couple of weeks ago, LoveItLoveItLoveIt had a bit of a sale and I bought these for my daughter.
I do like LoveItLoveItLoveIt – they specialise in Scandinavian children’s clothes and, even though they tend to be expensive, their stuff lasts for ages. My daughter had a purple dress from them that she wore for about two years. It helps that I’ve stopped tumble drying the kids’ clothes.
This outfit will be super once it starts getting really warm. A friend back in Brighton (where I grew up) mentioned Gay Pride (starts on 4 August) and, if we were going, it would be just the thing to wear.
