I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to decorating our house but I’m also one of those ‘let’s do it all right now’ kind of perfectionists, which is quite impossible when it comes to decorating a home. I’m reminding myself we are in this home for a long time and I’ve got many years to decorate, but it’s so fun shopping and dreaming up our new place. I’m trying to meet myself half way between right now and in the next ten years. What is that 5 years? Immediately my mind bargained and said what about 5 months? It’s impossible for even me to reason with me.
I love the shade of this dress — it’s not quite black, so it’s the perfect shade of dark grey. And it’s super soft. Which is a huge plus when you think about putting a whole sweater on your body. Itchy is no bueno for me. I can usually deal with a few itchy sweaters but not in a sweater dress. It’s hard to be discreet when your whole body is itching. I had wanted a nice camel scarf this year to pair with my new coat and this one was just begging to come home with me. Much like furniture, clothes speak to me. I can’t help but take a begging scarf home.
