I’m trying to be a better gardener and getting close to nature on my hands and knees weeding 🙂 It’s progress for someone who doesn’t really ‘do’ outside in this way and a way to force myself to overcome lifelong phobias – yes it’s all true – gardening is very therapeutic! Sadly, they’re unscented – my wildest dream would be to have a garden bursting with fragrant blooms all year round! Then, maybe I’d be more ‘outdoors-y’. So these grey Gap 1969 bf jeans are holding out very well and keeping their shape into their second year. I’m trying to wash them as infrequently as possible which is the recommended thing for denim. It’s not a problem as I have a few to rotate and when they do get to the wash, it’s always on a cold, wool wash cycle. With a Gap rayon tee, Banana Republic beige knit cardigan-jacket, Céline shoulder bag, vintage Next belt and Via Spiga white leather slippers. I changed to the Burberry trench and black studded Opening Ceremony loafers for a visit to the cemetary followed by a trip to see my ailing MIL in hospital. The colours glowed together.
On a different day, evening in fact, an outing to see the film ‘Maleficent’ have you seen it yet? We really enjoyed it! Gap Men navy cotton jumper, belt as before, Giacomorelli shoes, vintage Hermès Fonsbelle bag, gavroche and horn necklace. This is my first necklace in horn and I really love it against the blue. I feel this combination of gavroche scarf and necklace really works on my jean days.
