Hello everyone , hope all is well in your part of the world. September was a rather hectic month in our family as my husband John celebrated his 70th. birthday. Due to Covid outbreaks interstate our plans for celebrations didn’t go as planned as neither our son Callum and his girlfriend Georgie or John’s sister Roseanne could fly down to Tasmania. John and I celebrated together early with a delightful lunch at the Crazy Duck restaurant at Georgetown and on the day with John’s elder sister Jeanette .
Where have all those years gone , we met when we were both in our early twenties .
No photos from either day as I decided to enjoy the day and simply be in the moment not looking through a camera lens. This was my outfit from earlier this week as I am participating in another style challenge on Instagram , in support of my friend Suzanne in lockdown in Melbourne . The subject was wearing just two block colours , not really being a colour girl this was the best I could manage, an OBI coral linen jacket paired with dark green Moyuru pants. I added white accessories and floral tights.
Another of the challenges was an Iris Arpel look. This one was easy , lots of bangles , layers of necklaces and oversized glasses(in my case sunnies). I wore an old favourite chartreuse linen coat as a base. I received an interesting comment on IG from a lovely Dutch follower telling me to wear colour more as it makes me look more approachable, I promised I will try.
This was my version of dressed down tulle, starting with my new Rundholz black skirt , I added a black tee , black leather jacket, Trippen sandals , black boater and Jianhui necklace and Preen sunnies. Dressing down is not my strong suit , I am always the overdressed one but that’s the way I like it so much more fun.
Last Friday October 1st. just before midnight a new little grandson joined the family. Meet Hamish Jack James , pictured here with big brother Harry and his proud Dad Zac.
John and I drove to Hobart on Friday evening after a phone call from Zac to stay with little Harry . It was a precious time and reminds you of what really does matter in life.
I will finish this post with Spring blooms , firstly wisteria , that grows in my garden but was originally planted next door by our late neighbour . It is a bit rampant in its growth but I love it and I remember Miss Kiddle ( the neighbour) every time it blooms.
I am absolutely thrilled with these frilly double pink tulips that I purchased from a bulb grower at my local Farmers Market last March.
That’s all for now, regards to all.
