February is a very birthday-ful month.
Firstly, my father turned 82 this week. He isn't in great health, and in fact was in hospital earlier this week after falling down and injuring his head. Happily, it wasn't serious, so was back home for his birthday.
This blog turns 1 year old on 19th Feb, I turn 46 on 27th Feb and four other friends also have birthdays, so it's a social old month.
My parents will be celebrating their 56th Wedding Anniversary on 21st Feb.
Exactly 1 year ago today, I had surgery on my ankle and foot to repair a ruptured peroneal tendon. The resulting recuperation was what prompted me to start a blog. I had 6 weeks of no walking at all - pure torture - so instead of getting all cross and grumpy, I took my morphine and started a blog. I'm shocked how quickly the year has passed. My ankle is now perfectly back to normal and I'm still writing the blog, although perhaps not as much as when I was under house-arrest!

Recent outfits. Looking back on these makes me realise why I love J Crew still. Almost all my work staples are from J Crew. Despite their silly prices, sometimes crappy quality and daft copywriters, their skirts and tops still make up a big part of my wardrobe.

I've not been so excited about any of the recent new arrivals at J Crew, but I am very happy with my previous season's purchases. It makes getting ready in the morning very easy knowing that I can just grab a skirt and top and they'll probably look good together.
Is there one particular label that you rely upon for daily outfits?
