Khaki and Brique

KHAKIBRIQUEJune already – halfway through the year – can’t believe it! I guess most of that was taken up with preparing, moving and unpacking for me – see the growing hill of green? Well another great thing about khaki is that I love wearing it with rusty, reddish brown accessories. Of all the reds out there, I think this is the most versatile for me – softer than orange or true reds. Continue reading

Spring Khaki

KHAKIUTILITYLinking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday

Two years ago I realised more green was needed in my wardrobe. I’ve always loved the colour but having such a huge number of variations made it hard to narrow down the actual shades best for me. Continue reading

Indigo Love

SNEAKERSClarks Girl leather sneakers with elastic laces and hidden zip closure – fantastic if one is still learning to put shoes on all by oneself or an unfit, wide footed, middle aged mum! Wearing them with indigo denim – I promise I’ll put away all the jeans and wear other clothes once the weather warms up for good 🙂 Continue reading

LOOSENEUTRALSI’m squeezing out the last of the light cottons before Autumn sets in and having to reach for heavier versions. In fact I needed an outer layer but missed the chance to use the new short trench. Continue reading

After the Rain

YELLOWROSE2 YELLOWROSEIn UK, there’s at least 865 different sorts of rain. At least. Well, the other day we enjoyed a rainstorm. My garden is grateful since the ground had cracks in it, however, the blooming yellow roses are plagued with aphids. I really have to take action!SHIRTDRESS A quickie outfit shot before we left to visit my MIL who is over 80, has osteoporosis and fell twice breaking a couple of bones. Thankfully she’s very slowly on the mend in hospital. Continue reading

Chambray and White Jeans

CHAMBRAYWHITEJEANSI LOVE wearing white pants here, here, here, here and here. These Gap 1969 white bf jeans were among the last flurry of jeans hoarding nearly a year ago but Spring was a wash out and I didn’t wear them all last Summer. The Chambray shirt is from Gap Men and a fantastic quality and make. Again, it’s passable for the denim shirt look. Continue reading

Linking to Patti’s Not Dead Yet Style for Visible Monday!

We’re enjoying the last bit of time before normal chaos routine starts next week 🙂 I love wearing skirts all the year round and recently Jill of Everything Just So and Adrienne of A Rich Life (on a budget) featured skirts on their fantastic ‘How I Wear My..’ series.
