I'm doing it again!! What you ask .... comparing my blog to others! Such a pointless, worthless and futile task!
You know how it goes, check out other blogs, read the topics, discover interesting facts, view fabulous shots along with dexterous writing - resulting in feeling downright fed-up and deflated! Once I've 'picked myself up and brushed myself down' the answer, for me, is to re-visit some of the inspiring blog posts I've read in the past to recharge my blogging battery, affirm why I started blogging and to realise just how far I have come, and at the end of the day, does it really matter? As long as I'm happy. I'm sure some of what I write is interesting to some people, and others have no time for it, and being honest I do that with some blogs too!
"You can please some of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time, but you can't please all the people all of the time"!
With that off my chest, lets get back to fashion and lifestyle blogging.
How's your weekend going?
Again a lazy day due to the weather, hubby and I were going to make a start on cutting the hedge, it seems only yesterday we were cutting, striming and burning branches from our boundary hedge that seems to grow quicker than Jack's beanstalk overfed on John Innes strongest fertiliser! Anyway it's raining! Shame that, I can blog instead! Lol.
Thought I'd show you two ways with white jeans following the 'all white' theme of last week you can see my blog post here.
Last week when the sun shone so brightly it could have been middle of Summer, but the cold, crisp wind told another story, I went to the beach for a photo shoot! (still love the sound of that - Gigi Hadid eat your heart out! Hilarious laughter ringing in my ears.)
Esther Ruby took some super pictures again, I'm so lucky to have her work with me so skilfully and with such enthusiasm.
So what do you think about my two slightly different looks?
Having become hooked on wearing these previous season white skinnies from Matalan,
I love both looks and love equally what I've paired them with.
First up, worn with a navy blue slip over blouse which has a cute front ruffle detail from the v neckline down to the hem. Long sleeves with button cuff and an elasticated hemline forming a blouson effect - good for hiding any extra weight that's often carried around the waist for ladies of my age.
This comes from Bonmarche also available in burnt orange and wine. For a mere £18, you could have all the colours.
I've worn my tan slip on ankle boots from TK Maxx, plus a wooden bead necklace that's been in my necklace collection for ages, I can't even remember where or when I got it! Similar on the Amazon website. (Link below)
Sporting my Irresistible me cheap hair extensions, they've given me so much volume I thought I was going to take off in the wind.
My "three colour rule" shinning through - sorry it's inherent in me and so hard to throw-off.
White - Tan - Navy.
Now here's white jeans with tan jumper. Having had this in my wardrobe since early last year see where I first wore is here. It's proved to be a versatile little choice and goes without saying neutral tones are a must in any jumper collection. I wish I'd looked for a scarf to finish off this look, although I'm not sure I have one, (make a mental note that I
Really like the colours of the beach and my outfit mixing into each other.
Here's my cute tan booties from TK Maxx again - comfortable, stylish and all round functional. Similar from Mantaray in Debenhams for £49 - See website in side bar.
Until the next time, stay safe and have fun!
