Good morning my lovely friends.
Hope you are well.
Monday's blog post was a bit of a non-starter! Apologies for that. I've been feeling a bit lethargic and lazy of late and I'm afraid the blog has suffered. I've been doubting my self again and wondering what I'm doing in the big wide world of blogging. I'm trying to tell myself that I'm doing it for me, and not for gaining followers, likes and nice comments, but we all want to be liked and accepted don't we? Do you feel like this and how do you cope?
It was a busy weekend with a roast dinner and all the trimmings - I might add it was Turkey that was bought and frozen last Christmas to have at Easter, we decided to bring it out for Sunday and there's plenty of meat left to be eaten so will probably freeze it for another meal. Good weather, family and a little drink is just what the doctor ordered eh!
It's still warm though, so my transitional pieces are doing a bit of a yo-yoing act - one minute they're on, the next .... yes you know it. I've bought a couple of new pieces that I can't wait to show you. They are most suitable for cooler days and I think towards the end of the week that's what we may have. Do stop by to see them in the next few weeks.
Today I'm sharing another look for my white culottes - catch when I wore them with a cold shoulder top, dressed up for a party & with a rust jumper for fall.
I was pleased to find them in the sale a while back, white goes with anything and the tortoise shell buttons have grown on me! I've got so many options in my head so they'll get plenty of use until it gets too cold or wet. But until them I can have fun styling them to my hearts content.
Here I've worn them with a neat little high neck slinky jumper I actually bought back from Abu Dhabi a couple of years ago - it's from H & M which I was surprised to find in the shopping mall along with all the other high street stores.! I also returned with a chic patterned pleated skirt which you've already seen back in 2018!
You can imagine I was sweltering when we took these pictures, but to keep warm I'll pop a tee shirt under it - if it's really cold a long sleeve option will do the trick and not be noticed!
Do you like the silver balls over it? That's what I really liked about it, and that it's so silky and soft to wear. Here's one I found you might like as mine is sold out.
Do you see the side detail on my trainers? It's leopard print and complements the tortoise shell buttons perfectly. I picked up the white trainers last minute really and when Esther gave the thumbs up to wearing them I went ahead. So pleased I did as I really like the trendy, casual vibe it gives - not to mention how bloody comfortable they are. 💛 Love these from Asos.
You can't go wrong with a Chanel inspired bag can you! I have a couple that I use, but am daydreaming about my very own designer beauty to love and cherish - let's hope hubby is reading and picks up my hints - lol 😜
