I won’t lie, this year I feel like it’s the first time in what feels like a long time I’ve had the time and inclination to follow fashion and really enjoy buying new pieces for my wardrobe. Last year I was heavily pregnant in April and May (when all the really pretty, summery things start to appear in the shops) and then, after Teddy died, the last thing I wanted to do was shop. Nothing fitted me, and I could barely look at myself in the mirror, let alone be in the mind frame to enjoy clothes. I got some new bits out of necessity more than anything; essentially because I was struggling to fit more than one leg into the previous year’s clothing! Saying this, I did end up with some lovely bits, and hopefully ones that I’ll use again this summer; if they’re not now too big!
