New Shapes

My plan for 2015 is to try different things and to step out of my comfort zone, so what better way to
start than with my wardrobe. I discovered these pants by Japanese designers Moyuru and just knew
they had to be mine.I love the fabric,it is blue,black and silver stripe and the fit is so relaxed and
easy to wear. This interesting detailed top from Sarah Pacini seemed the perfect match.

I am sporting shorter hair after a visit to Craig, my talented hairdresser last week. I am pleased with both the cut and colour. I had decided to let my hair go grey but was assured that I have so little grey it wouldn,t work just yet so , oh well.
I have now decided to paint my bathroom a soft grey instead, when I say I , it is loving retired husband really
doing the hard work.

Changing shapes , dipping our toes in the water of change can only bring rewards, we just never know
what that will be. For now I will just play a little with change, if your eyes are open and searching changes
will find you, I have always found.

    I like this shorter version of your haircut, looks great on you! The chunky necklace is a real beauty and the japanese pants look super comfy and stylish. It is always good to try something new.

    Love the hair. it really goes with that out fit too! My hair seems to be going dark blonde rather than grey, I was hoping to go white like my maternal grandmother. 🙂

      Laurie I am so with you on the grey hair front. I see so many women with wonderful silver grey hair but mine is like yours just going darker.

    looks like you've found a balance between trying out something new while staying true to your core self. I wish I could change my hairstyle (can I have a well-behaved straight hair, any colour will do, please?) but I'm afraid I need some gene-manipulation instead of a hairdresser for that…

      I guess having dead straight hair has its advantages and also limitations, as with your hair its about making the best of what nature has dished out.Love your idea of staying true to your core self, so true.

    So wonderful! Love your futuristic look, Jill – at least, it's how it strikes me. I noticed your hair cut the minute I opened your post. You look great, fresh and somehow new – I see that the changes you are talking about already work. I always admire your attitude about life, Jill! xxx

      A change of hairstyle is always an easy way to start a change I find. Thank you dear Natalia for your always kind and thoughtful comments.

    Your positive attitude towards life makes you appreciate changes. Changing is vital and always brings some good! It wourd be a boring life without it … your shorter hairstyle is very nice. I love the minimalism of Japanese style, also in house decor!

    I agree with you Dan on life being boring without a little change now and then. I too admire the minimal Japanese style in house decor.
