How can It be the end of the month already?

Hello, how are you?

How can it be the end of June already?  Been and gone so quick and without having had any summer here really, and there's really only  two months left!  Seems summer came and left one day in May! If you live in the UK you might remember that day ;-p

Opted for a summery outfit today, to try and bring a little summer into my day.

This Matalan pencil skirt in a soft jersey is so comfortable to wear, and being just the right length on me it finishes a bit below my knees - always a good thing given my knees! Very flattering in a pale blue with white kind of embossed pattern all over.  With an elasticated waist, it's just so easy to pull on and as it expands with me throughout the day I can wear it for any occasion, especially when visiting a restaurant for a dinner or lunch out ;-)   Thick enough not to be see through so no half slip needed, therefore staying cooler to wear if it ever gets hot and sticky out!
This skirt I've owned for a couple of years, purchased from Matalan was about £14.  They've always got some great pencil skirts in this store, and I've got quite a few different colours hanging in my wardrobe.
Only a plain white t-shirt was needed to compliment this skirt, but I did wear a white fitted cardigan as it was a little windy today.  Deichmann blue suede espadrille wedges finished off this summer ensemble, adding more texture to the look.

Picked my gold watch and earrings to wear today.   My Rotary large dialled watch was a birthday present last year, I wanted one with a large face and this stunning beauty is actually a mans watch - although it's rather slender so don't think many men would wear it.  Having got the date above the six, but without glasses on I can't see it,  for all I know it could say the wrong date or could say 'put your glasses on'. Ha! it has got the wrong date on it!
