There’s still some snow on the hills (And, OK, also on the dales, if we’re going to be completely honest, here…), but when the sun’s out it feels almost like Spring should, so I’m celebrating the best way I know how: by wearing polka dots, obviously.

As much as I love my dresses and skirts, when it comes to these transitional times of year, I always find myself abandoning them in favour of trousers. It’s still too cold for bare legs, you see, but I can definitely get away with bare ankles, and I’ll rather not have to resort to tights if I can possibly help it, so trousers it is.

I found these ones at Forever 21 back in the depths of the winter, when it WAS too cold for bare ankles: they didn’t look right to me with boots or socks, so they’re one of a few items I bought during the winter and have been patiently waiting to wear. Now that the weather’s started to warm up, though, I’ve been making up for lost time, and have worn them twice this week already, which means that this week is already TWICE as good as last week was. Thanks, April: I owe you one!

      Oh gosh, best compliment ever! I actually like Marilyn’s casual looks better than her dressed-up ones: no one could rock a pair of capri pants and a sweater like that girl!

      Oh, I bet you could! They’re a little bit bold, which is why I wore them with black, but other than that, they’re really easy to wear!

      Thanks – I think these shoes were about £12, but I wear them more than almost any other pair! I really need to find a replacement for the day they finally die on me…
