One of those odd Spring like days and I was desperate to wear pale ankle for a change. Continue reading
GONG HEY FAT CHOY!
The school holidays are upon us this week and I’ve been busy not just with the kids but a big project so haven’t had the chance to prepare anything special for Chinese New Year of the Ram. We’ll be going out to dinner but had wanted to do something at home which is now one more thing to put off for another few weeks …

In comfy holiday mode of jeans, shirt and long cardi with double scarf to keep warm. The check shirt is Gap Boy in a traditional navy and bottle green. Cardi by Mango, Banana Republic orange scarf, Hermès silk scarf, vintage Gucci belt, Sam Edelman ankle boots and Céline bag.Topped off with the Cos coat. Besides the casual outwear from the Men’s and Kid’s department, this is the only coat I’ve ever bought new from the shops, all my other ones are at least pre-owned or very vintage.

I feel I’m making better progress this time armed with better research and more tried and tested examples this whole year. Here was my orginal A/W Shopping list:
- Burgundy leather pointy toe loafers (I have burgundy bags so would work to match)
- black leather gloves (managed without last year but really need them this Winter)
slim, long grey cardi (a veritable gap)
- slim fit long sleeve white shirt (never bought that linen M&S one!)
- short pink cashmere jumper (I know I’ll be passing on more of my jumpers to my kids from now on so can add replacements and variety)
loose straight leg jeans a là 70’s.
I never used to think I had a favourite colour, always choosing a small selection of neutrals but now I can finally say I do and it’s Blue! Most shades in fact. It’s the colour that flatters and although not the most exciting in the world, it’s a total work horse for me which is most important. I must link to Sharron’s Style At Every Age Holiday Blues post as well here. Continue reading
Useful Trim bag. When slightly too full to zip easily you can use the clasp closure for some measure of security, though I never usually overfill. Continue reading
