Jockey Cap , Pants and Travel Plans

I had great plans this week to do some creative writing accompanied by scenic photos but life had other
plans and I found myself working heaps more than usual leaving very little time for much else.

The scenic surrounds became my back garden on a blustery evening and even though I am smiling here,
most of the time I was more concerned about the havoc the wind was wreaking on my roses.
My outfit was what I had worn to work that day , with the exception of my hat which is worn here as a
nod to the Spring Racing Carnival taking place around the country. I am wearing a cream coloured leather
jacket from New Zealand over a spotted top by Marlene Birger and a new pair of harem pants from  Japanese label Moyuru, fast becoming an all time favourite.

Here is a close up of the details of the pants , they are black but look more navy blue here.

On another note we are planning to travel next year in the Northern Hemisphere Autumn to France,
(spending our time mostly in Paris), Spain and Portugal. It has been many years since we have travelled
overseas (1983 in fact) so much planning is the order of the day.

    OMG–love that jockey hat! Don't be sad about staying put. I find the planning of trips is (almost) as fun as the trip itself and it sounds like you have a fantastic one to look forward to.

    Haha, not a hint of black on that photo, the pants look absolutely navy blue! The trip you are planning sounds great, all those countries! Once in a while one should go on such trips, it breaks the routine of life and fills you with new impressions and emotions.

      I totally agree with you on travelling it opens your eyes so much to the world around us. Funny how in print colours can be so different.
