Red is always a good colour to brighten up a dull day.In fact what started as a simply overcast day had
turned to rain as we reached the park by the river for today’s shots.Just as well rain and cold do not deter
us as this has been one of the wettest Winters on record .It also gave me an excuse to bring out the black
vintage muff that I found recently at a local vintage store.
Sometimes on days like this it would be tempting to turn my back on Winter and escape to warmer climes.
One of the draw backs to blogging from the Southern Hemisphere is seeing all the pretty Summer outfits
that everyone up North is wearing this time of the year but the plus to that is I know what is current a
season ahead.Oh and I am in Summer wear as the Northern Hemisphere rugs up for a Winter than is always
so much harsher than we ever experience.
At present I am grapling with the thought of retirement, not really by choice more by circumstance. I think
for me this is the problem , I feel I am not ready as it isn’t my choice.Work gave me a purpose and I need
to readjust my thinking and find new challenges, any suggestions welcome.
A black hat that I purchased in Melbourne last Winter tops my red wool vest , worn over a black wool
jumper and teamed with my Moyuru pants and black tights and ankle boots from Wonders.
