on black

I know it's been a while since I wrote.
That's okay. Things have been rather busy here.

I've come to the realisation in the last few months that I feel better wearing black, at least on my top half.

This seems boring, and I have fought it for years, I love bold colours, and for some reason I feel guilty if I'm only ever wearing black, but I feel most comfortable and confident if I am in black.

This also opens up better ideas for me for buying/making new clothes: I can be as adventurous as I like with my bottom half (bold colours skirts, for example) and they'll always look fine with a plain black top. I can focus on buying different basics for my top in black, knowing I'll be happy to wear them and feel good wearing them.

So I feel like I'm making progress with working out my personal style. Now all I need to do is get a few more items so I've got more than two options, and maybe look forwards to summer, I'll need some more black tees. But it's not warm enough for that yet, so I've got time :) other news, my ethics proposal in currently under consideration and my 'confirmation event' (read: 20min presentation on what I'm doing for my PhD) is next week.

...and Miss S is now 5 and has thoroughly enjoyed her first week of school.
