Frock Fridays: Lace and Bows

February 22 marked the first day of almost six straight weeks in which my work life slants heavily towards the "nights, weekends, and other duties as assigned" part of my job description.  Unfortunately, although I love what I do, it also means that my personal life is now slanting heavily towards "pasta on the couch in front of the TV."  But I really don't want to just be either a professional or a potato as we head into spring - I want to be able to meet up with my friends for fun but low-key outings.

So I'm trying to put a few coffees and brunches and shopping trips in the diary for between now and mid-April, when I go to England, and I'd love to wear something girly and springy like the outfit below for our dates!
