Putting on my gloves and off to a morning meeting that included coffee and mince pies. I had thought about what to wear and decided on the pieces a couple days before but didn’t have a dress rehearsal 🙂 I was looking forward to wearing my Ralph Lauren cashmere skirt again here, here, this time with the Theory long black coat in keeping with the longer length.

Freezing and windy combined is a weather condition I find particularly hard to deal with. Freezing and dry with a bit of sun thrown in, I can happily oblige as you can see. I didn’t even need my trusty beret but from chin downwards I’m cosy covered. Continue reading

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’. Continue reading

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! 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
I saw a photo of the contents of a woman’s bag years ago containing the usual items of wallet, card case, cosmetic bag etc, the difference was that they were all in the most beautiful colours I’d ever seen – yep, Hermès colours! I used to avoid bright colours on their own let alone together! Yet these colours were all different and didn’t clash, in fact they just intensified each other.

No matter how often I tidy it up, no sooner done than for it to happen again practically overnight – lumpier than ever! I’ve never been one for carrying everything but the kitchen sink in my bag so I realised perhaps only a little re-think was necessary. Not a complete overhaul but an adjustment to better suit my current and future needs whilst indulging in colours I love. Continue reading
