Is this more than you bargained for yet?

Morning world,

I've got a little outfit post to share with you this morning...

Today's outfit is one I wore to a hospital appointment yesterday. It's nothing special or new, but it was comfortable, and comfortable was what I needed then. Remaining seated or standing long enough to make it through an appointment is no easy feat for me, and I almost always find hospital waiting rooms to be so overheated, so comfort was important.

I wore my Next floral tea dress over black leggings. The dress is one I've owned for two or three years now, and it's a lovely little day dress. It's light, but not too thin, and it has bat wing sleeves which cover enough arm for me to wear it without needing a cardigan over the top.

I was perfectly warm dressed just like this out and about yesterday, which had to be the warmest day of the year so far. Finally! The sun was shining, and although it was a bit blustery, it had to be a couple of degrees shy of 20c. So nice of you to finally join us, Spring.

This dress has a high neckline, with a pretty crochet trim along it and down to the bust.

The fabric has a ditsy floral print all across it.

I used my mint scalloped ASOS satchel, which I bought with Christmas money back in December. I'm a sucker for scalloped detail.

And I accessorised with various pink, red, and white bracelets.

The rose bracelet is by Cath Kidston, the pink beaded one was part of a set from Dorothy Perkins, and the two faux pearl bracelets came from Matalan.

And this bracelet was a gift from my best friend a few years ago. If I remember correctly, this one also came from Next.

This outfit definitely helped make the appointment as comfortable as possible. I don't know why I don't wear this dress more!

Thankfully I wasn't in the hospital as long as I'd anticipated (just 45 minutes), but unfortunately, the appointment I thought was going to be an assessment and procedure, was just an assessment, and I have to wait for another referral to get the toe taken care of, which probably won't be until at least June! I had one toe taken care of last month in Hampshire after just two months from referral to op, but I've been waiting for a solution from my own GP since September! It's strange how much efficiency and care can vary from county to county.

Oh well, at least that meant I didn't have to be injected in the toe again today! I'd like to avoid that at all costs.

What do you wear when you need to be comfortable in public?



  1. Snap, I also have lilac nails at the moment :D I really like this outfit though that dress reminds me so much of working at Next. So many people had it! The print's lush though so I can understand why. That's so annoying about your toe, but yay Hampshire haha! xxx

    1. Nail twins! I can imagine a lot of Next staff wouldn't have been able to resist buying this dress. It's pretty and comfortable. How long did you work at Next? My toes are just another piece of me falling apart, but hopefully I'll be able to wear shoes again for Autumn. You're lucky to be living in Hampshire! They're so much better at looking after people! xx

  2. Looking lovely I love the dress :) hope you get an appointment soon xx
