Perhaps I’m a little optimistic, but I detect a whisper of spring is in the air. The bulbs in our garden are starting to poke through the frozen soil and daylight is stretching out into the evenings. Patience has never been a virtue of mine and I’m ready to shed the winter layers and get involved with the new season. This dress from Self-Portrait has me chomping at the bit for warm weather. It has everything going for it; the lace panels, the preppy collar and the flirty skirt are ticking all the boxes. Me being me, I’ll wear this guy down the pub, but it’s perfect for a wedding or summer party.
