Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday This outfit has much meaning to me. I suppose it sums up how far I’ve come in trying to find my own personal look and comfort zone to match my age and lifestyle.This blouse was found on *bay many years ago as a replacement for a similar one that fell apart because I wore it so much. In those days it was worn with the same things now, skirts, trousers and jeans but in a different, more relaxed way. It’s a traditional style and design in silk with copious embroidery in the palest grey silk thread. And here it is worn with my newer favourites and wardrobe essentials, bf jeans, a knit jacket and python kitten heels. These heels are a treasure – Jimmy Choo and so incredibly comfortable. The couple of inches of heel make all the difference when you’re as short as me!I had no idea how perfectly the colours marry until I put them on. The double row glass beads were a recent *bay find, a little different to the pearls I would have usually reached for. This is the kind of closet update I strive for; inserting new favourites with the old. I have to tell you, my son asked me; ‘What’s with all the beautiful clothes, Mummy?’ [he’s only 9, my reply is the same to his father], ‘What, these old things I found in the cupboard?’ 🙂I had almost forgotten about this Céline bag that I bought because I use my neutral Hermès Lindy so much during the Spring/Summer. And who knew I could wear this much metal 🙂
