Overdressed for a country lane , maybe, but who cares not me , far better to overdress than underdress is always my motto. In this instant a cream Ted Baker silk shirt paired with an inky blue Rundholz skirt.
I added cream brogues for a change from booties and leopard print tights .
I have owned the cream shirt for many moons but sadly it has been a tad too tight until recently . I am so pleased I don’t follow the conventional wisdom of replacing things that no longer fit, I always knew that in time it would again. On another note the bow on the back should be sitting so much flatter , this happened when I asked John if the bow is right . Lesson learnt check in the mirror yourself before leaving home.
My other accessories for the day were round Karen Walker sunnies , a mix of bangles , beads and a black leather OBI belt.
I do enjoy taking the time and composing outfits on a daily basis,( and it is so good for self esteem and mental health and a creative outlet)but neglect to photograph them for the blog . Hopefully this will change as when I finally purchase a remote so I can take my own without my trusty photographer .
After a visit to my hairdresser last week my hair is a little darker not quite me but it will fade and I am sporting a much shorter fringe .
I was not the only one sporting a new haircut , Raffy had a visit to Carol, our lovely dog groomer last week .
I am determined to add more colour this Spring and Summer , baby steps starting with a new eye shadow palette. I was a bit extravagant with this one as its Dior but know it will last me for ages.
The first of the roses are providing a few blooms for the house. I always have this little jug filled with flowers on my hall table. The joy of having a garden is cutting flowers for the house as I do enjoy arranging them .
A few blooms from the garden , a light pink clematis a self sown seedling from my sisters garden.
This dear little rose is Cecile Brunner , sometimes called the Sweetheart Rose, is one of my favourite early roses.
I love the faces on pansies and violas , excuse the pink tongue , photo bombed by Raffy.
My thoughts are with my blogging friends in Europe and the UK , please stay safe and healthy.
