Needing Some Style Advice

Woman, Long Hair, People, Female, Girl

Family summer garden party for a special celebration coming up very soon. I opened my wardrobe and groaned, “I have nothing to wear” (which is not true). Jack picked up on my whining and told me he wanted to treat me to a new dress. This is exciting to me because all my dresses came from charity shops or as “hand-me-downs” from friends. New dress!!! It’s like the most exciting thing to happen this year!!!

Do you think I can pick one? Jack is being patient…but he has to place an order very soon to get it on next day delivery. I have narrowed it down to five dresses…but I am stuck now.


I would love your opinion. Bear in mind I am a caramel blonde (my hair is very long at the moment, but I am ringing every salon I can find to ask of I can make a last minute appointment to trim my straggly ends) and of an hourglass figure. That means Dress 2 and 5 are not the style of dress that suit my shape. Anyway…what do you think?

It’s Still Astonishing!

Jack is going to be with my family and I for a celebration, a family party. This time last year that would have seemed impossible. One year ago. we were still estranged. So much has happened in the space of a year.

It’s absolutely marvellous!!! Sometimes when my mind races over how a situation that seemed dire was completely reversed, I experience a rush of exhilaration. I saw the picture above on Pixabay and thought to myself…yes, that’s how I feel. Being with Jack for around eleven months is astonishing and wonderful!
