Having spent three sticky days in London at the beginning of the week, it has been glorious to have had the rest of the week with my feet firmly cemented to the ground back home. It’s been a veritable luxury to be back to family life and trawling backwards and forwards to the post office to post my ebay wares. Though I love the bright lights and glamour of the city there is little so comforting as basking in the countryside sunshine in floaty dresses and denim cut-offs.
It was fun to play dress up though and have an excuse to put together some outfits I don’t usually get to wear, something suitable for meeting those fashion folk. Between a couple of meetings I found this amazing black wall and couldn’t resist playing fashion blogger.
STYLE OBJECTIVE: Effortless trend.
Understated is all well and good but sometimes I want to put it out there (see the neon skirt!) and say actually I am confident enough to wear this. Being careful of-course to look like I have made no effort whatsoever. As a result, my outfit for Tuesday consisted of coated black jeans (Oasis), a floaty grey marl tank (Whistles), nude wedges (Jimmy Choo) and some gold statement jewellery (J.Crew).
All of these items are core wardrobe staples that I’ve had for a very long time but here are some similar alternatives.
My girls are on school holidays now and I am determined to take control this time. Embracing the lack of routine and all round anarchy instead of resisting. So far so good and with just over a week before we head to the Channel Islands for three weeks…well in fact as I write this, we only have one way tickets who knows it could be longer…I’m feeling positive.
Oh the pressure of holiday packing…wish me luck and have a great weekend!
