Hope you are doing well.
I have a very special few days coming up, but they really won't be the same still stuck in lock-down. You see it's my birthday tomorrow and I will only be able to celebrate with my loved ones who live with me! I know it's the same for a lot of you, so do share how you would celebrate your lock-down birthday ideas.
It's also my grand-daughters birthday and my eldest son's & I won't be able to celebrate with him, I'll just stop by to give him his pressie and my love from afar. We will have a little 'party' for my princess with the others joining on the computer via Facebook or Zoom!
Apologies for no post on Monday, everything just got on top of me!
I had a super long weekend with the Bank Holiday unusually happening on a Friday. We had a BBQ in the garden with some tasty meat I bought from the local butchers. As the weather was nice I decided to buy a paddling pool for the children, but by the time it arrived the weather had changed for the worst - freezing cold and the last thing they wanted was a cold and wet dip in the pool! Saving it for the better weather that's hopefully just around the corner! Maybe we can have a 'pool party' for my grand-daughters birthday on Saturday!
I adore wearing pink - it really is a positive pick-me-up colour and I've turned to it quite often in the past few weeks to brighten my mood. With my disposition changing daily I've looked to my outfits to put me into a better place which, sometimes has worked really well. I feel so much better when I dress up, do my hair and put some makeup on! Which is just what I've been doing these past few days and have been surprised at how much better I feel.
I topped my pastel pink jeans with a pink, black and white abstract patterned shirt dress - you've seen it before over black jeans. It doubles as a jacket worn over a T-shirt like I have or a roll neck for a warmer feel.
I bought the jeans in Next for the Style not Age challenge 'Pastel Picking' They've proved a really good buy now because I've been wearing them on repeat since #lock-down begun. I love wearing jeans, but have found dark denim slightly depressing to wear. These pretty pink ankle swingers look good with so many other pieces in my wardrobe and are pretty comfortable to wear too. X
The peep toes make my feet very happy and I wear them frequently in the better weather, I really wished I bought the tan option that was available when I bought them - I wish I had the foresight to see just how comfy they would be! These are very similar.
I still like to finish off an outfit with a necklace - so I picked the black beads and hung them doubled up high on my neck.
