Rather than a prairie dress, I prefer a matching top and skirt of the same print, because these can be more easily combined into several different outfits. I purchase less, because they help extend my wardrobe. Such as a black blouse and black pants as well.
I never use a handbag, because a tote bag is more practical for work. However, I do sort my tote bag with smaller zipped cosmetic bags for office supplies and personal necessities. I also keep a comb and other minor necessities in the glove compartment of my car and my desk drawer at work.
When shopping, I carry a small change purse in my hand. The change purse contains only my credit card. I also keep a small comb in the pocket of my jeans. When trying on clothes, my hair may need to be combed prior to leaving a dressing room.
I try to carry less to prevent anything from being stolen, lost or misplaced. If the change purse is in my hand, I always know where it is. I can still look through things in a store or pick things up quite easily.

Hi Anne, aah thanks for such a lovely comment:) I keep getting asked about the paint colour which is funny actually as I was just about to repaint the room white!! Think I might keep it now:) It's by Farrow and Ball and the colour is called Pigeon. Have a wonderful weekend. xx
Hi jess , I used to save up for Vogue from the age of thirteen !! Seems so funny now , I have a sixteen year old daughter who would never look at any magazines !! I’ve offered teen vogue , no interest !!
I think it was the highlight of the month when the new one came out! My children are the same tbh, often have an apple device in their hands but never a magazine. It's such a shame:/ I adored the creativity of it all, still do to be honest:) xx
Hi Melanie, thanks so much for watching:) Aah I faff with my skin a lot in search of the perfect way to keep it hydrated. It just soaks up moisturiser like there's no tomorrow! The last few weeks I've also been testing out a specific beauty routine for a video we wanted to make so it's a good sign it's looking fresh:) I also love using Retinol treatments as I think they're amazing:) xx
Hi lovely, aah that's so kind of you to say, thank you. I did a hair video of how I style it a few weeks ago if you fancy watching that:) Re my wall paint, it's by Farrow and Ball and the colour is called Pigeon. It's a lovely colour but very dark once the sun goes down. Hope that helps xx
She made the most incredible shoots. It almost felt like she was trying to create a film through pictures. Have a google on her name and the shoots she did, there were so many beautiful ones it was hard to choose. x
