Hello friends , hope this find all well in your corner of the world. Summer days are certainly slipping by , its hard to believe it is nearly the end of January. I thought I should show some of my favourite outfits from the last few weeks.
This was my outfit for running a few errands last week. The morning was still a little cool when we ventured out so my long sleeve Sarah Paccinni black and white knit worked perfectly paired with wide leg Moyuru pants. Silver Fly London sandals , black and white Preen sunnies , black and white bangles and my Covid indulgence a black and white necklace by Jianhui London finished the look.
After a morning of the usual home chores John and I decided to take advantage of the sunny day and take the Mazda MX5 for a drive along the river .
We stopped at a picnic spot at Clarence Point to eat our lunch and enjoy the view.
The day was warm but experience and a few nasty sunburns have taught me to cover up in an open top sports car on a hot day. My cotton Ted Baker shirt fitted the bill perfectly as it is a fine cotton and not too hot to wear. I paired it with striped Moyuru pants and an old black lace vest, multi-strand beads , bangles , sunnies , daisy earrings and a grey hat that I found at a makers market in Paris back in 2016.
Our last few days have been rather hot so loose and comfortable was in order. I have worn this black Rundholz cotton dress for several Summers . I have been playing with different combinations and rather like it with the ruffled white Moyuru blouse on top.
I had to include a close up of my shoes . I purchased them at the Fly London store in Lisbon in 2016 . This was my first trip to Lisbon and I really fell for its charm and in fact returned in 2018 to explore further. I hope to return one day , in the interim I will relive my memories every time I wear these shoes.
A hat was in order for sun protection , this time a black boater , a Summer favourite. White bangles bought at a thrift shop and the daisy earrings (Marc Jacobs , a recycle find) and sunnies complete the outfit.
On another note I have been busy in the kitchen making the most of Summer produce. Our lemon tree had an excellent crop this year so I have been preserving lemons as well as making limoncello .
Last weekend we travelled to Hobart to stay with the family and babysit our two little grandsons. On the way down we stopped at Lowdinia orchards to purchase their wonderful apricots that I stew and freeze to add a taste of Summer in Winter .
