I love green! Green green green. Green tights and green dress for the win. I got this dress a couple weeks ago and adore the pattern and the thick material, but it fits me strangely around the chest and makes me look boobless. I don’t understand why because there’s room in it so it’s not pushing my chest down, I think it’s how the fabric falls.

I have boobs really. Honest. Quite averaged sized ones, too.

Anyway, stop thinking about my boobs. Naughty pants. I’ve got summink’ I want to talk about.

Did the clocks go back for the last time?

Sunday was the end of British Summer Time. Which meant at 2am on Sunday morning, the clocks got pushed back so we could all enjoy an extra wonderful hour in bed. I LOVE AN EXTRA HOUR IN BED.

The clocks go forward in Spring to make the evenings lighter, so we can get more use out of the light. We put them back in the Autumn so it isn’t as dark when we’re getting up and getting our day started.

Well, MPs and academics are backing to switch to Central European Time to keep lighter evenings throughout the whole year. They are saying that lighter evenings will mean less road accidents and save on electricity bills as people won’t have to have their lights on as long. Although others are saying having school children going to school in the dark may put their safety at risk.

You’re probably wondering why on earth I cared enough to write a blog post about this. Well, after studying the Philosophy of Time at university, I’ve always been a bit mesmerised by time.

That, and the fact that the clocks going forward and backward is something that has always confused the fuck out of me. I’m old, so I’ve done it a lot. But every single time I ask the same question ‘Do we get an extra hour in bed or lose an hour? Every single time.

And nobody ever seems 100% sure of the answer.

I’m just glad all my time telling devices change automatically..

What do you think?



  1. Ahh I am always PERMANENTLY mesmerised by time (pretty much all of my posts are time themed in some way or another…)
    I will be SO sad if it’s the last time! The extra hours of daylight really make summer IMO! All of my summer memories have been made so much better by the extra hours of daylight. Aaaaah πŸ™


  2. I used to get confused but someone told me to remember it by “spring forward, fall back” which is what works for me now. I love your dress.

  3. Gorgeous dress πŸ™‚ maybe you look boobless ‘cos the pattern is so huge? It kinda distracts from anything else! πŸ˜› I didn’t know that this was being considered! I’ll cry if this happens! I love changing the clocks, it’s like a signal to me once they go back it’s truly winter and snuggle time and when they go forward it’s all times for new beginnings πŸ˜€ x

    1. Yeah – changing the clocks is a nice marker. It will feel strange not doing it as you won’t have that noticeable change in light like you do when the clocks change!

  4. I adore your green tights. I’ve always wanted to know some ideas of how to pull off block coloured opaque tights and you’ve just helped me out. This will be a style i’ll be trying out this A/W.


    1. It’s easy when you get into the hang of it. I usually like to pull them off by wearing black or grey too then the tights give it a pop of colour πŸ™‚

  5. I seem to learn something new through each of your blog posts, perhaps I should make skinnedcartree my news station from now on? I had no idea that there were discussions of changing our ridiculous bi-annual clock changing, not that I’m complaining! Personally, as much as it confuses the hell out of me, I quite like the marker that determines one time of year from another! I love the colour of the dress on you and if it makes you appear flat-chested at all, it’d make my chest appear concave haha. Hope your week is going well so far! πŸ™‚


  6. Okay, daylight saving is a completely new concept to me. Back in Malaysia we only have one time, no going back and forth, this is so bloody confusing for an old girl like me. LOL!

  7. the pattern on your dress is so pretty! i don’t think it fits strange up top. i find time very interesting too, although daylight savings time is so confusing. i wish we could keep lighter evenings in the US year round. maybe if the UK goes through with it, we will follow suit!


  8. all this time, i thought the change in times applies to everyone this sunday (i live in canada, we change clocks this weekend)
    but i guess it’s different on your side of the world.

    anyway, that dress looks amazing on you!! i don’t think you look “boobless” in it, haha!

  9. This dress is stunning I can see why it is a favouirte. The colour is georgeous. I am always glad when they go back for the extra hour not so keen when I loose the hour the other way. I hope that it stays as it is I quite like that we are quirky and do something unique Lucy x

  10. Thank you so much for your comment on my Blog! Had a bit of a break from my Blog to get back on my track – but now here I am πŸ™‚

    Follow for follow?

  11. So beautiful! That dress fits you so incredibly and the colour is so lovely! x

  12. Green for the win!

    I didn’t know they were thinking of not changing the clocks any more, I like the sound of that. I always forget about it!

  13. I think they should stop doing it. I always thought it was to help the farmers who got up in the morning during Winter. I’d rather wake up in the dark than be driving home in the dark. On a side note…your dress is beautiful πŸ™‚

  14. Lovely outfit – the dress is so pretty.
    I would miss putting the clocks back and getting an extra hour. But then I’m the kind of person who goes abroad then thinks ‘ah, I can get those hours back now’ when I come home. Haha. πŸ™‚

  15. I genuinely don’t notice the clocks changing, I don’t tend to be dominated by time and sometimes I can find that hours have passed by so losing or gaining an hour doesn’t make too much of a difference to me.

    I adore that dress it’s gorgeous!

  16. Cute dress, I love all things green. I always rely on Fall back, spring forward. Its handy now that most of my devices (a.k.a phone, computer etc) change the time automatically.
