Every so often, I come across an item of clothing that instantly changes how I feel. A little black dress for sophistication, a stompy pair of boots to take on the world, or a long floaty skirt which almost takes me back to being a kid, resembling what felt like a princess, feeling incredibly dainty and girly.

I fell in love with this skirt the moment I first put it on. I love the shorter under-layer and double front split - flashing a little leg with every step, almost contradicting the innocent look that the pleats and light colour provide. Yep, its love! I wore this to a gorgeous Italian restaurant at a posh hotel where Dan has previously shot a few weddings, and I felt suitably 'swishy' all night!

I also pulled this old crop top out of my wardrobe - I bought it about 2 years ago now and haven't worn it since I gained a little pot belly but am proud to be donning it again with a high waisted skirt! Fortunately, the important chest area has a few heavier layers of fabric so no bra is needed - another girly piece of clothing - I'm not sure how this all happened!

What clothing do you have that changes how you feel for the better?
