The Friday Dress OOTD

For the last two weeks, my students have been bugging me to wear my Friday dress (or as they say it: “wear the Friday dress, Miss”).

The friday dress

I forgot about wearing it for the last two weeks, so I thought I better wear it for once.

Now, some of you may be wondering “what the heck is a Friday dress?”.

This isn’t just any dress, it’s what I called my ‘Friday Fried-egg’ dress. All for a good reason.

When I lived in Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, I went to London for the weekend (to be honest, I spent most weekends in London because Clackers was quite dull). I went there with a vision in mind: Portobello Market (my fave). My goal: shopping.

I went to quite a few little shops and stalls around Portobello, and managed to find this amazing shop selling all sorts of dresses. This one caught my eye.

Fried eggs or daisies – not sure which…

When I first saw it, I thought ‘hey! That is a cute dress with daisy’s on it!’.

When I wore it to school the next week, my student’s asked me:

“Why does your dress have fried-eggs on it?”.

And so it was born. The Fried-egg dress.

The Friday dress has served me well. I wore it travelling a lot, as it is comfortable and dressy. It is cool for hot weather and also looks good for winter too.

 

I wore it in Italy, England, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Australia.

When I wore this dress in Italy. Plus a bad hair day – my pixie cut was growing out and it was terrible.

It’s the perfectly perfect dress.

This is when I wore The Friday Dress in Rotterdam when I was visiting my cousin.

 

Coincidently, the above photo depicts the day before I ended up in Hospital in the Netherlands….always get travel insurance guys, it saves you from spending thousands of euros on health care should you need it! Thank God for travel insurance. Plus, this is what my hair used to look like (I stopped growing it out and got it cut in Utrecht, I got sick of bad hair days).

I don’t care if the pattern looks like fried-eggs. I wear it with confidence and pride!

    A dress to purposely go shopping in. I like it! I was going to say why are you wearing a dress with the Haribo fried eggs on it but the zoom in confirmed that it was Daisy’s – and a rather lovely dress. Children can be so ‘cute’ but I definitely think it’s a timeless piece that will stay with you forever and bring fond memories – I mean it’s virtually travelled the world from the sounds of it. Beautiful post Hun, really enjoyed the read and you remind me of a very sweet pixie, I’d love to be able to be brave and have a pixie cut as I think they suit so many people but alas, I am not brave enough lol. 😊 x

      I do love Haribo, so having them compared to Haribo fried eggs is awesome πŸ˜€
      I don’t think I’ll be getting rid of this dress anytime soon πŸ™‚
      Sadly, I don’t have a pixie anymore, as I decided to grow my hair out, but I know one day I’ll go back to a pixie!
      Thank you for your lovely comment!!
