Jumper - Primark / Skirt - Asos / Necklace - Asos / Glasses - Dior
'You're your fathers daughter', my dad says smiling. I feel a rush of pride come over me, wondering what I'd done to deserve such a compliment. Could it be my cleanliness, after all my room was almost spotless? Could it be that I'd been managing to live away from home for over a year? Could it be a personality trait that he'd noticed I'd developed? I look over to find that he's staring at my necklace. 'It looks like a fuse!', he says excitedly. And then, the penny drops. That 'lovely compliment' was actually him admiring that my necklace looks like something he deals with in his every day job.
I couldn't bring myself to tell him that I chose it because of the colour.
