I love a black and white print, whether it's stripes, houndstooth, gingham, or a large 'picnic check'. I've had this F&F dress in my wardrobe for a few years now, but it never fit properly. Until now! Hurrah!
The cardigan has a little dog on it, I was sold when I saw it! I don't have pets in real life, I find if they're on clothing they're much easier to look after.

This was the first day I wore those wedges, and they cut my feet to shreds because I unexpectedly had to do more walking than I intended. I went to the hairdressers, literally a 5 minute walk, only to find they don't accept card payments, so I had to walk another 5 minutes to the cashpoint, which was out of order, so then I went home to borrow money off the other half, but I went a bit of a long way around, a sort of 15 minute walk, and then I had to walk back to the hairdressers, and then home again afterwards. So what should have been 10 minutes total of walking turned into over half an hour of walking. I need to 'break them in' a bit more around the house before more public appearances, they're leather, so they will soften in time. It's a bit annoying, because Bertie's not a cheap brand, but the leather is quite stiff on these shoes. I have wedges from cheaper brands where the leather has been like butter from day one. It was quite a lot of drama for a haircut anyway!
