Emma

Hi again. I'm Emma.

I had a real problem today deciding what to wear.

I wanted to wear something smart for work but I'm going out with my friends tonight so I wanted to wear something casual as well.

I usually wear a skirt, a shirt and a scarf but today, I chose jeans and a jumper. Hmm... but then I thought I look too scruffy, so I'm wearing this dress instead.

What do you think?
